How can I allow anyone to post without requiring them to login? (3 posts)

    So I am looking to make a group discussion blog by hosting WP on my server, and I would like to have so that anyone is allowed to submit a post without having them to sign up for an account. I have my template and all the coding done, I just need to figure out a way in order to allow people to post without an account. Each post is then approved by me or a fellow admin before it arrives public (I do this with the GT Post Approval Plugin). But currently I can only get this all to work properly when someone is logged in.

    Any ideas or plugins on how I can just have people submit news/stories without having them login?

    I do apologize if this question has been previously asked, I attempted to search prior to posting this but did not find an answer to my question. If there is in fact a post regarding this I would appreciate it if you could kindly direct me to it. Thanks!

    Hi,

    I do not recommend to post without registration use for the blog becuase it wil lead to the spam posting..

    However, you can create a form and ask the require details and on submit make an entry in the wp_posts database... and wordpress fetched posts from that database only..

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Yes, this thing is possible but requires a lot of coding. I suggest making comments on your posts..
