I have a weird request, and don't know where to go in the code to make this happen.

How can I have all users treated as a guest, when they post a comment, so they are allowed to choose their own name, and e-mail at the time of posting something?

Thanks for the help.

Not sure what you mean ?

Trying to basically get the form, that in the file Form.php is labled under classname ".wpd-form-foot" to always show up, and actually work. I can get it to show up, when someone is logged in, but filling it out and submitting it doesn't actually display the selected name.

 

Basically trying to make everyone in the comments anonymous, while they are logged in.

@cortega,

We're really sorry, but wpDiscuz doesn't show the name and email fields if the user is already logged in. There is no way to do it. 

Basically trying to make everyone in the comments anonymous, while they are logged in. 

In case if you want to make all comments made by both registered users' and guests as anonymous, let us know. We'll provide you a JS code that will replace the names of the commenters with "Anonymous" phrase.

@asti Sure! I think I can make that work. Thanks for the help.

If I figure a solution out I'll post it here, in case someone in the future needs this. I seem to be making some progress using the "preprocess_comment" filter.

Actually I forgot I wrote this yesterday. Here is some code that makes users post as anonymous unless they have a certain role. Hopefully it helps someone in the future. 

 

add_filter("wpdiscuz_comment_author", function ($authorName, $comment) {

    $allowed_roles = array('editor','administrator','author','super admin');

    $user_id   = $comment->user_id;

    $user_roles = get_userdata($user_id);

    if(is_object($user_roles)){

        if(!array_intersect($user_roles->roles, $allowed_roles)){

            $authorName = 'Anonymous';

        }

    }

    return $authorName;

}, 10, 2);

I cant find a code at the moment, but i am sure, this would be 2 or 3 lines to rename all roles to "guest" and remove the labels.

Sorry, i am sure Asti will help fast
