    Hi,

    Is it possible to have someone post a comment to my blog without having to register. I've seen it on other sites. It just asks for name, email, website and comment like this one:

    http://webworkerdaily.com/2007/10/24/3-rules-of-self-marketing/

    At the bottom..

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Look in your dashboard under Options > Disscussion > Before a comment appears. Word of advice activate atleast Askimet before doing this or you'll spend all your time deleting spam.

    The setting is in your admin panel (time to get familiar with it, don't you think?)
    admin > Options > General: Membership

    There's nothing wrong with that, I see the comment form just fine. Clear your browser cache and try again. By the way Moshu's is the correct advice. I forgot about that setting.

    And when you want to test "visitor's experince" - log out!

    Cache gets me in trouble everytime. I've activated the anti-spam thing too. Thanks for your help!

    Hi,

    It doesnt show up in Firefox. I see it in IE, Opera, and Netscape. I've cleared my cache too.

    Are you still logged in your firefox. Try going to your dashboard and seeing. It shows up just fire for me in FF 2.0

    Hmm..
    Something must be goofy with my browser. At least I'm not losing my mind. I'll have to close my stuff and try again.

    Wow. I figured out why mine is different because I'm logged into my dashboard. Need more coffee!
