Is it possible to allow visitors to see the site without having to register or log in?
I would like people to come in and see what the site is all about and then, if they want to comment on a post or create a post, they would only then be required to create an account.
I know this would not work for a majority of sites. It's just that for my site, the mission of the site is to help people and to inspire them. To share a ray of hope to those that need it most. I don't want them to have to log in just to be encouraged.
The problem is... (and it is a BIG PROBLEM)... people are reluctant to join a new site. People are so afraid of giving out personal info and being scammed at every turn of their daily lives. They are truly skiddish (rightfully so), and skeptical of signing up here or there. ( I don't want to know that they are male or female, their birthdate, or if they are this way or that... those things do not matter for my purpose).
My objective is to let people know that in the short time from the cradle to the grave, they can learn to love the moments in life. Because that is ultimately all we have.
I just have to figure out a way to let them in.
Fantastic! Just tried it and it works great with my custom theme based on the White Theme in OSSN 6.1 Premium.
Thank you so much.
You may try to use as example https://www.opensource-socialnetwork.org/component/view/5680/unloggedinmenu
Regarding Birthdate , Gender you may also disable it as per your requirement
The gender required for graphs disabling will result into wrong results in admin panel dashboard (users graphs) and Birthdays required for Birthdate component (example). However it is entirely up to you to manage and customize your network as per your users need.
