Hi, Is it possible, while using existing addons, to allow an unsigned user to sign a guessbook ? Many thank for your help :) Yours, Klod

    You could integrate a simple guest book, outside the Vanilla execution. I like this one, that has a demo here. I waited only 5 days for a suggestion to be coded (search thing), nice.

    I soon have tested some guestbooks outside vanilla. I was looking for a way to have one inside, with same style, ...

    Then it's just a matter of visuals. Many guestbooks can be customized through css and header and footer templates.
    What could be handy is to replace css calls of your guest book by calls to the Vanilla ones. Then maybe you'll have to adjust the templates of the guestbook. From there, a change to Vanilla CSSs would apply to the guestbook too.

    Other solutions I see are too use User Wall (one guest book per user), or Guest Post, that maybe you could tweak for it to show only on a precise discussion, that would be "stickied".

    User Wall is not a good solution, as I do not let non signed in users acces to details of members :( So I tried Guest Post. I understand I have to create that user 'Guest'. I also create a profile Guest and a category 'Guest book', give the user guest the profile guest, only allowed to add a comment un that category. Thats all nice, but the point is that the 'add your comment" box is appearing on each and every discussion, and so there is a tentation to write something in that box even if it will not be accepted. How can I remove that box on other categories then 'Guest book' ? Many thanks

    In the CommentGrid_ShowGuestPostForm function of the Guest Post default.php, you could try to add this condition:
    && $CommentGrid->Discussion->CategoryID == the_cat_id_of_your_guestbook_cat
    Not tested, if it's not that, it must be near...

    It could be a suggestion for GuestPost: we would be glad to choose the categories where GuestPost would appear.

    [... we would be glad to choose the categories where GuestPost would appear ...] Yes :) [...if it's not that, it must be near...] It is that, indeed Wonderful and many thanks :) A last question : if I understand well, I could remove the "input username" and "password", but not for instance the "wisper to" box (if I have one on the forum elsewhere). Is that ok ?
