  • [CMS] How to allow guests to comment on CMS articles?

    Hey all,
    I am wondering where I have to change the permission to allow unregistered users the ability to post comments on articles.

    The tricky thing is that I still do not want them to be able to post in the forums, unless registered.

    Thanks

        Usergroups -> forum permissions

        In the vBCms Comments section, simply allow guests to make posts.

          That really isn't an option when you move the articles to another forum (like it should do automatically...)

            And why should it do that automatically?

                It is the forum permissions for the forum you have set as the vbcms comments forum.

                  So you mean I have to grant guests in the vbcms comments forum to make posts?
                  But I can only find option for making threads, not posts.

                  Could you pls kindly write down the steps I have to make so that guests can make comments on vbcms articles?

                  Many thanks in advance for your kind helpt.

                  Pls excuse my bad english.

                        But I cannot see any comments given as a guest

                        Is there any additional option for activating comments?

                          If a guest leaves a comment, who can't see it? Where can you not see it at?

                            I as Admin or as a User can't see them. I cant't see them in the Frontend articles nor in the vbcms comments forum.

                            After I have tried everything out I guess:

                            In 4.0.4 guests cannot leave comments for articles

                              Is this actually possible? I can't seem to do this eithier.

                              Forum permissions set, yet when I view an article as a guest, there is no comments box to reply in!
