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.

Yes. That is one of the features of the plug-in.

Found it on your community:

I found out a way to automatically check the box.

Click "Search In Templates" and search for this piece of code:

<if condition="$show['anonymous']"><div><input type="checkbox" id="cb_anonymous" class="bginput" name="anonymous" value="1"

Now replace it with this:

<if condition="$show['anonymous']"><div><input type="checkbox" id="cb_anonymous" class="bginput" name="anonymous" value="1" checked="checked"

The box will automatically be checked now.

Thanks to Jase2, as I came up with this idea based off his hack:

It's one of the last mods I'm waiting for before I move to vB4, maybe PM one of the Mods or Admin on here, see what they say.

Is there a way like the old Anon posting to make replies show like this:

Anon A
Anon B replied
Anon A replied
Anon C replied

etc.

So each new Anon user has their own Anon posting so conversations are easier to follow?

i bet you'd have to create users in order for that to occur and then have the software point to those users, understanding when they should pop in...which might be some fairly extensive coding

I hope they say the update can be released to the public. it looks like the author has left town and isn't coming back.

well, that makes me wonder if, since the author is gone, can a new version be put up by a new author then?

the software is open source is it not?

well, i went over to the Zoints forum and like others previously, posted a request to either get an update or allow the other member to post his.

and after a week of it being posted, no response. shoot, with that, i'd say they no longer want to own this component.

here's the forum if anyone wants to let them know that there's more than just a few of us interested in getting this upgrade.
