    Salaam XP2,there used to be a VB MOD, that allowed guests to post and then redirect them to register after post was made. I am not sure if such a MOD exists for VB 4.

    And AB, it's not a hassle to change the theme my friend. Just a simple matter of selecting from a drop-down list. Shouldn't take more than 10 seconds. But such a theme is not currently installed.

    I mean, dude, you have access to the admin panel. If you check the access settings of the forums, there already exists the option of granting access to "Unregistered / Not Logged In". So half of what you want is already there. Thing is, authenticating e-mail addresses needs access to the mail gateway (specifically the transfer agent), something the board software does not have; think of greylistings, for instance. Via a "mailback" the board could ascertain whether the address is valid or not, but access to no such tool exists. OTOH, if the unregistered posting option needs a relatively complicated procedure, people would not be attracted (it would ultimately be just as complicated as a full registering drill). I've been for some time now halfheartedly lobbying for a forum/thread open to all, unregistered passerbys included, but the response has been lukewarm at best. I guess it's not really a priority.

    That happens even if there is no public access board available. Additionally, bots are of no concern.

    Salaam Rttsk,

    Glad that you made an entrance.

    Could you let us know if we are getting a Quran specific section? I think most people here would want that.

    Yanal, get the hint. The Board likes to surprise its members. What next? Some annual Forum Governance Report?
    1.4 billion people live under the poverty line - 1.25 USD per day. 20000 Africans die needlessly everyday due to AIDS, malaria and TB. 1.02 billion people do not have enough to eat. 3/4s of this are rural poor farmers who will also bear the brunt of global warming.

    I used to be hadith rejector. After studying hadith at a surface level, I realized the large amount of nonsense dispelled by this forum and their top users. The exemptions are Al Boriqi, Nawawi, Lumumba and hlatif (who is no longer here). My advice, leave this forum. If you read anything of me rejecting hadith, know that it is nonsense and I no longer hold that view. Read my "Bio" for more info.

    Indeed, the main page is getting longer. That's another issue we are discussing at present. As it is you might see some nice enhancements and updates in the very near future. Stay tuned.
