      Description

      It seems it is not possible any more (in Moodle 2.2) to provide "guest URLs", that is, to provide an URL allowing guest access to a course page without the visitor having to click the "Login as guest" button on the login page.

      I'm referring to this : http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/Guest_role#Skip_login_page_by_URL

      My Moodle (2.2) site has force login enabled, but some courses have guest access (without key) enabled, and I wish to provide simple links to showcase these courses.

          Thanks for the report, I have updated the docs. You can enable automatic guest login in User policies.
