View Full Version : Guest access?

How does guest access work? I tried sending a thread to a couple of friends of mine not on the board, and they were asked to login. I logged off the board in IE and tried to access the site, and it asks me to login/register as well.

Am I missing something? If you have to register to access the site, then why are there so many guests listed at the bottom?

It's been for a long while that guests could read the forum, I recently turned that off. I thought we were being spammed, first of all, and plus it's nice every now and again to get a clearer number of how many lurk this place by getting them to register.

The reason for so many guest was because they were search engine bots.
