I wanted to use the forum module in a HelpDesk
pseudo-course to allow students to pose questions
or provide comments to our Helpdesk. Since we
use an external authentication method (pop3) any
student can participate. But, if they wished to
remain anonymous, the guest option would not work
for us, because guests can't post to forums.
I propose a course instructor be able to choose if
guest users could participate in that course's forums. This presupposes that guests were allowed
into the course to start with! Perhaps this should be selectable per-forum? I recognize that
inviting anonymous posts might also require constant vigilance for appropriate content!
I have made minor changes to accomplish this, for
forums within a specific course. I will set the
URL below to where I will place the context-diffs.
