Solution Added: Required Nickname

This solution forces all users to enter their nickname in post. Users don't have to register or login to post a message, but they're not allowed to post as anonymous either. Something should be entered in the username field or else an error message will pop up.

One more question:
How can I include the text that you have under " Only registered users can post here. Enter your login/password before posting a message, or register first."?

I have included some text, but it also appears for registered users, but I would like it to only appear in one (open) forum and only for unregistered users.

I can't find this variable in my language pack. What's the syntax?

Be sure to have the 2.0 RC5 version of miniBB.
This variable was added with RC5.


Edit: On topic: the message for username required is within the Javascript code and not in the languagefile.
