Zoints Anonymous Posting - Improved privacy for members

Not Supported  

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.

It's probably due to the same reason you can't post a poll... you've attached the files as User A, but then when it posts, it gets converted to the Anonymous user, so the attachments are lost (as they are not associated with the Anonymous user).

Likewise, if you post and want to add a poll, you can't because the post has been posted as the Anonymous user, but since you're really User A, you can't edit or add a poll once the post has been submitted.

For anyone wanting it in quick reply - I have a dirty hack that does the job. I couldn't get the IF statements working however, so if you disable anon posting you will have to remove this manually. Perhaps someone smarter than me can do something better

Edit the SHOWTHREAD template. Find:

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Below it add:

I would love to see the attachment issue addressed to this.
I think I along with may others have been waiting on that since the beginning of this mod.

Zoint, I love your stuff, PLEASE can we do something about the attachment problem?

I am currently finding out whether I can take over this modification or release my updated version. Currently I have not done anything with the attachment issue until I hear back from Zoints on his forum.

Question

Excalibur82, have you heard back from Zoints?

Mummybrain (mummy), I thought I once saw attachments in some posts on your site. Was I mistaken?

Thanks.

I have an issue. I know it's not from your awesome hack, but was wondering if you could give me an Idea to what is causing it?
When I post and quote using Anonymous, it puts tags around everything [ SIZE="a"]Another test[ /SIZE]

I'm using 3.8.3 Any Ideas?
