Anonymous comments possible without logging into foswiki?

Greetings, and thank you for the wonderful new foswiki!

I am using CommentPlugin with BlogAddOn. My blog looks great, and I'm able to add comments with CommentPlugin, but the problem is that if I'm not already logged onto the foswiki I get an authorization prompt. My intention was for outside users to be able to comment as "guest" without logging into the foswiki.

Is anonymous commenting supported by CommentPlugin?


You cannot post anonymously with CommentPlugin. But you can set up a BlogComments web that has no edit access restrictions, and post the comments to that web.

Then change BlogPostViewTemplate to contain:
---++ %MAKETEXT{"Comments"}%
%INCLUDE{"BlogComments.%TOPIC%Comments" warn="off"}%

---+++ Add your comment
%COMMENT{noform="on" type="blogpost" templatetopic="BlogPostCommentTemplate" target="BlogComments.%TOPIC%Comments" button="%MAKETEXT{"Add comment"}%" }%

Be prepared to get bugged by blog spammers from time to time.
