Anonymous posting for sensitive subjects

So, we are building a community for managers. Thus, some subjects might get sensitive. We really need to have the option to have anonymous posting – a registered member could choose to be anonymous when posting a question or answering one. Is this a possibility?

Thanks!

Hi Virginie ,

Did you use the search? Discourse already includes a setting to allow users to post in anonymous mode.

It’s under /admin/site_settings/category/users

You can search your site settings from /admin/site_settings and using the filter field at the top.

There are lots of topics already discussing anonymous posting too:


If the current implementation doesn’t work for you then maybe you could elaborate further?

Hi @Stephen ,
Thanks! This is exactly what I’m looking for but I can’t seem to find it… :woman_facepalming:

Do all version have the setting?

Thanks!

It has been in for a couple of years, and is part of the standard install. If you’re a hosted customer it might be worth opening a ticket.

Sorry @virginie.lehmann this is our bad. We do hide this setting on our hosting as people were enabling it accidentally and getting into trouble. @HAWK can get you sorted.

I replied to your PM earlier @virginie.lehmann – let me know if you have further issues getting this sorted!

Hey there,

I’m also not seeing the option in site settings to allow anonymous logins. Could you help me get this enabled on my forum?

Thanks!
