How can we set permissions for guests for this forum. What are default permissions for guests.
How can we set user level permissions.

The question about "user levels" is not understood, sorry.
miniBB is not about users and memberships. It is about the content, about the earning on the content.

By default, all guests can post. Read manual or search our forums for $allForumsReg and $regUsrForums to provide various options for members only related forums.

What kind of errors do you get?

Edit setup_options.php.
Uncomment $allForumsReg and set it to TRUE. That's all.

$allForumsReg=TRUE;

Variations.

Regarding your latest reply which I have deleted.
Please be patient while someone replies. Possibly someone means me.
You are not amongst privileged or premium customers to get an immediate reply, it's not the forum for the free support instead of living. It's just the forum of the free support which could be given... any hour, any day.

The best lightweight forum on Earth, if we know how to configure it :)

It's all explained in Manual... I know, Manual is a bit outdated and somewhere full of improper English... if you have ideas on how to make it better, or what do you mean by "if we know how..." - you're welcome to spread your thoughts, on how it could be better made...

Thanks paul for inviting me for suggestions.

What i think is minibb is inspired by unix file system configuration . i.e. every thing is configured in a file and then implemented.
If you can make admin panel graphical [i.e. configuration should be easy enough even after the installation] like other forums do. All the ptc site and personal website owner will rush towards you.
and if you can provide a manual on how integrate this forum with ptc site scripts. it will be first choice for Newly developed PTC site owners.

I am not a coder , it is just a suggestion (with apologies)

Like I already replied, regarding any 3rd party integration we may suggest, it starts with $80... I think it's a top notch price. Guys from SMF or phpBB would probably require for a customized integration 10x times bigger price (the other question is, they are already "sponsored" by their private investors, but the only investor in miniBB is me and the customers who pay for my work).

We suggest such price because with miniBB it's all is simple... but still, it requires some time. I suppose you may imagine my time is very costly. Each working hour rates high, so afterall, I am suggesting to publish all codes for public with giving all credits to your project or website, so this is the best offer I could have regarding PTC integration or any other else. Sorry, I can't work for free for private goals in the capitalism world.

As about the "graphical" implementation of editing the core settings... thanks, I already have this add-on in mind long time ago; unfortunately, family issues still force me to work on the customized tasks more than developing this... let's hope after I get my hands free at some point (it's coming even closer this year), this task should be the first I develop... thanks for your "+1" on this.

It would mean, you have to open your forum to Guests. Only Guests could specify just their nickname with no password.

Members should specify both Username and Password to post. This is a definite rule.
