How To Remove The "Registration" Element - Ghostface - 10-16-2013

Howdy!

I've set up a small forum and in order to boost sign-ups I thought I'd try and remove the registration phase so that people could post freely just by typing their name.

Any idea on how I could achieve this? Bear in mind, I'm a total newb so I might need a little guidance from you lovely folks.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Cheers!

admincp->forums & Posts->permissons and allow guests to post ... not a good idea though

Because bots will find it and spam your forum. Of course, if you install Spamalyser, you might be able to keep most of it out.
