Article Comments Section
« on: July 12, 2019, 11:03:07 AM »
How does it work? I have it turned off on all of my articles because I'm not sure how it's supposed to work. Do you have to be a member of the site, do guests have permission to post? Does the comments section automatically use SMF security measures to prove human before posting?

Is there a test article I can try it on here?

Thank you

Guests are never allowed to comment. There is no guest permission for it. Is understand that may be an issue for you. There is a fix to allow guest comments (documented somewhere in another support thread) but it will NOT give you captcha like functions, so you’ll open your forum to a flood of spam...

Ok, that's what I was looking for. I don't want to have it wide open and yes, I do need guest functionality but with security. Thanks @rjen.
