Have you ever wanted to discuss something on a forum but never posted because you didn't want people to know it was you? To solve this problem, we created an anonymous posting hack.

Via the admin control panel, you can easily choose which forum(s) allows for anonymous posting.




For anonymous enabled forums, your members then get this handly little checkbox (unchecked by default) when making a new thread or post.




If they check the box, then their post is created under the account you setup and assign as the anonymous poster. I personally created an "anonymous" username, but you can create whatever you want.




As forum owners, we all know that a few members will choose to screw around with this feature. Therefore we created an easy means to identify who created an anonymous thread/post should the need arise. Please be ethical and tell your members you can see who posted anonymously should the need arise. You can check the log by going here:




And the log looks something like this:



Official support for this modification will take place at http://network.zoints.com in this forum.


Enjoy, click install, check out Zoints' other hacks, have a great day, and all that happy jive.

(cross posting this here since I initially put it in the older 3.6 thread)

How To: enable Quick Reply posting with the anonymous option

This is a pretty simple fix, it just requires one template change and 2 plugins to be created. The first plugin is to add the correct hook so that the anonymous post from the quick reply gets properly logged into your Anonymous logfile. The second is what allows the if statement to work on the showthread page (where the quick reply lives).

1. Go to your admincp
2. Navigate to Plugins & Products, and then into Add New Plugin
3. Enter the following:

Product: Zoints Anonymous Posting
Hook Location: newreply_post_ajax
Title: Unload Anonymous (AJAX)
Execution Order: 5
Plugin PHP Code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Plugin is active: Yes



5. Save.
6. Return to the Add New Plugin page
7. Enter the following:

Product: Zoints Anonymous Posting
Hook Location: showthread_start
Title: Enable Anonymous Posting (Quick Reply)
Execution Order: 5
Plugin PHP Code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.



8. Save
9. Go to your Style Manager and edit the following from the SHOW THREAD templates: showthread_quickreply
10. Add the following as the first line in the template:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

11. Save

Now go to a thread in a forum where you have Anonymous posting enabled, and you should see the Quick Reply Anonymous option down at the bottom, just above the text box for the QR. Enjoy

Edit the SHOWTHREAD template. Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Below it add:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
That does not work

I use AJAX quickreply, so it's done as such:

Template Edit

===========================================

template name: showthread_quickreply

First line of the template, Add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Sorry for the delay.. I finally figured out what I had forgotten to include in my previous post that allowed the Quick Reply stuff to work. Look up above at post #76, follow the instructions, and you should be good.

I have also sent a patch of this fix to the Zoints team, hopefully they'll agree that it's a good update and release it as part of the product! Enjoy.

Please Help

Hi,

I have this mod installed, and I'm having problems with it. I have 3 types of usergroups(Admin(which is me) one moderator and several members. Everytime I go to use this mod in a selected forum catagory it keeps posting my supposdly annoymous posts as my members user names instead of just a the defualt setting.

Any idea's as to what would cause this to happen?


Mike.

I was using this MOD on 3.8.4 successfully. I uploaded 3.8.4 PL1 and it isn't working. I read about editing the templates, but it has been so long, if I did this, I don't remember what I did. Can anyone tell me what broke?

I meant to post back. Did you get it fixed? I did find that the update, this time, did wipe out my template changes. That resolved the issue.

Can you make certain forums ONLY allowing anonymous posting?
