  • [CMS] Where are the Permissions for whether Guests can Comment?

    I've noticed today on a test site running 4.0.1 Suite that guests are able to comment in some form, all of which are the following:

    Article: Sleepless in Bellevue

    You can view the page at
    Is this some feature that should be using a master admin account and it isn't, or is it that users can actually comment unregistered (as I can't see how they can when I check it our unregistered)? If so, where are the settings to refuse permissions for it?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    In the CMS code we don't show the comments unless the user is logged in. Because we use a forum, they can find the forum and then find the thread. That is enabled/disabled by the admincp > Forums & Moderators > Forum Permissions.
    Please- I'm not tech support. Don't send your problem reports to me unless I've asked you to.

      Thanks for the response Edwin.

      So what's causing the posting that I mentioned in my OP? I've got no posting for guests, and they've been created within the last day or so, even though the site has been up since 4.0.1 first came out.
