Is there a way to allow people to post on our articles without having to register first? Like how word press sites allow people to comment -- they require your name and email. Is this possible with CMS?

Thanks so much for you response!

Where is that? I only want to allow non-registered users to comment on articles. I still only want registered users in the forum.

That would just allow them to post in the forum, not on the actual Front Page where I'm writing articles. Our page is: www.insidelg.com and I would like people to be able to comment after an article w/o registering. Wordpress has an option where people can just enter their name and email into a field and then they can comment -- they don't have to go through the hassle of registering.
Am I missing something from your last post?
Thanks again for your help!

They'll still be able to post on the articles. The only ones they won't be able too, from what I am getting is the threads promoted to articles. Unless there is something wrong with my forum. But here's an example:

Thank you SO much! It works! I asked this question over on vB.com and they said it wasn't possible w/o custom coding! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Now for another question. Do you know if there is a way to make an unregistered user enter an email address before posting a comment? Wordpress has this on their blogs and I think it can be really useful.
