I can't find the setting to NOT allow guests to post new topics or reply?

Also my page bombs in Administration > Users. After I search for Role Guests.

Then click on Edit under Users

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Hi dbernett

Let's deal with the page error first. Would you try setting your YAF application to run in ClassicMode within IIS? I suspect it is running in the default pool. Let's see if that helps with the page error.

With respect to the NOT allow guests to post, this is controlled on a forum by forum basis. Go to your admin page and select "Forums" on the left. This will open the Forum editing area. Select an individual forum and choose "Edit". This will open the Edit Forum: area. In Edit Forum:, scroll to the bottom and ensure that Guests are set as Read Only access.

Thanks

Richard

Thank you so much for your help! I am so close to getting this ready for production. I have 2 other easy questions I think.

I do I alter the bottom footer? I think the terms allowed for this and I would still refererence the YAF Site but I would like to make a few changes if possible.

Second Question.

I noticed the User name in the Login Page is case sensitive. Can this be changed?

Thank you.
