    I'm trying to allow any to post without signing in or registering.

    I've search though the plugins, but could not locate such. Also searched the forums here, but did not find an "resolved" answer.

    I know comments can be set up this way, but what about posts?

    Any help appreciated.

    Did you find a way to do this?

    Maybe FV Community News would work for you (link):

    Community News plugin you allow your visitors to add articles to the sidebar. Complete with moderation panel and a settings page...

    You can also try TDO mini form :

    I'm working on an "auto-login as anonymous" plugin :

    function auto_login() {
        if (!is_user_logged_in()) {
            //determine WordPress user account to impersonate
            $user_login = 'anonymous';
    
           //get user's ID
            $user = get_userdatabylogin($user_login);
            $user_id = $user->ID;
    
            //login
            wp_set_current_user($user_id, $user_login);
            wp_set_auth_cookie($user_id);
            do_action('wp_login', $user_login);
        }
    }
    add_action('init', 'auto_login');
    ?>

    You have to create an account called 'anonymous' with the rights you want (I use adminimize and role manager plugin), and every visitor can access to post-new.php without registrating.
