I having trouble with my forum concerning Guests.

For one, anyone can delete posts, even Guests. I can't find where to turn this off.

Another is I don't want Guests to be able to post without registering, where do I turn this on?

Thanks,
-Nick

Just assign appropriate access mask to gest users ("read only" for instance). Admin > Forums
When I post FP:Ederon in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting.

Here are my access masks, yet Guests can still post and even delete existing posts. Do I have to assign "Read Only" to guests somehow?

As I said, check admin > forums, there edit forums and see whether guests have readonly mask assigned, not any other.

Sorry, I misunderstood. Yes, I was about to assign the masks to the individual forums and it worked like a champ. Thank you.

FYI:

I know u fixed your problem, but for those others who are reading this and wanted to dissable the guest, u can't because if u do, then the whole forum won't work. :):idea:
