Forum access

It seems to me that requiring a user to register with a password should ONLY be required to allow POSTING comments or questions.
If someone just wants to READ questions and/or answers that they would be encouraged to signup if they felt doing so would be of value.

Thanks for the feedback.

I believe users can read post without registering. However, access to attachments/uploads may be restricted. If I recall correctly, this was introduced to limit needdless traffic being generated from search engines, bots & spammers etc.

So registration is only required for posting...plus downloading attachements.

We will reviw this issue - next time we are updating the forum, to see if it makes sense to allow downloads for unregistered users.
