      Description

      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.
