Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

Should anonymous users be able to create a new discussion (in a category)?

This discussion is related to the Anonymouse addon.
edited April 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

In my config, I can't get an anonymous user to create a new discussion in a category.

If I change class.form.php from:
if ($Category['CategoryID'] <= 0 || !$Category['PermsDiscussionsAdd'])
to
if ($Category['CategoryID'] <= 0)
then I can.

It seems somehow I need the anonymous user (UserID=0) to have the permission to add a discussion to a category.

Is there a nice fix to this?
