Log Ins or sign ups required?

I did a quick search and could not find a recent thread.

Are all users required to login in order to reply or create post? Can some post anonymous with temp username?

I’m building a new community from scratch and I’m afraid a forced login/signup would deter some from posting.

Discourse doesn’t allow users without account to post. If that is a hard requirement you may move to another software.

What you can do in Discourse is using seamless logins (single sign on, social logins) to make the sign up process easy.


I figured as much.

I want to make it easy to post while building up the community. Once I have large enough numbers, 100 or so, then I wouldn’t mind mandatory log in.

Thanks for the info.

BTW, I really like how the :heart: looks now. That was a good move.
