    Hi there,

    I like the plugin a lot, however, is it possible to open game predictions etc for Guests (non-registered)? As we do not allow any registration on our site, we would love to use the plugin for guests, i.e. only give their name and maybe contact details and predict matches once-off.

    Many thanks and regards
    Christian

    The plugin uses the WP_User object from WP and its functions to get info about a user (for the logged in check, the ID, the name, etc.), so guest access is not possible. If you don’t allow registrations in your site, you can consider setting up a separate install for just the pool.

    Hi @antoineh,
    thanks for the reply, I have the same question. You suggest that we can consider setting up a separate install for just the pool.
    How does this work?

    Many thanks! Rianne

    A separate install is just another WordPress install. Just make sure you put the files in a separate directory on your web server and use a different database prefix for WordPress in the wp-config (or another database). From your main site you can link to the other site.

    If the website won’t work from the directory (e.g. http://www.mydomain.com/footballpool), then you can try using a subdomain (e.g. footballpool.mydomain.com).

    Which of these work will depend on the possibilities on your webhost.
