I have my WordPress blog self hosted.
I would like to add a bit of BBS behavior to the blog so that:
- Anyone can post posts or comments freely, without the need to register.
- The posts publish immediately and automatically, without waiting for approval.
I know you may worry about spam, but don't worry about that.
So I would like to know how I can modify the code so that I get this functionality- basically to have the POST and COMMENT buttons on all front-end pages, not only after registration.
The default role of any user should be "Author", and except administrator users should not be able to change that status.
