BBS functionality

  • Author
  • #642603



    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.
