Just me again!
A quick question- Does anyone know -- IF I do not require membership- in other words if I check the box that says my website is Public and people can see everything-
Does a person still have to become a member to comment???
I know the small site is limited to 100 members...
I added this small website as an addition to my normal site to place my Constitutional Study Group there...
Will I be limited in some way?
It's my understanding that they cannot comment without joining your network. However they can lurk and read all of your content without joining.
There is a big push to get Ning to allow 'guest" comments like you want. This from the Roadmap. (It's in the planning stages right now:
New Commenting Options
Provide the ability to allow non-members to join in the conversation by using third-party commenting services (e.g., Facebook comments).
That would be a great idea! I have a huge readership audience and several have asked for a guest comment feature...hope we see that soon!
Yes, these people will need to be members to comment, but we are working on a new blog feature, for example, that will let people comment who aren't members. That will be optional, of course.
That would be totally awesome! Great news for my idea!
