Anonymous Posting Capability?

Recommended Posts

I am relatively new to processwire. I also started learning html and css just this year. I have basic understanding of concepts but am still at a loss on the technical language but I am excited to learn a lot more.

I'm working on starting a website that is along the lines of fmylife.com. I have my design down and I understand the basics of processwire. What I can't figure out is how to create the main component of this website.

I need to be able to allow any user without creating an account or even inputting an email address to post directly on the main page. Obviously without allowing them to touch anything else on the page except for their individual post. Maybe using individual IP addresses and cookies. These posts will resemble that of posting on facebook. I need to be able to have a backlog of these in order to create categories for the "best posts" etc. and the capability of deleting any content that I see fit. The furthest I've gotten is the idea of creating one continuous thread. Also, I know wordpress has the capability of a similar way but requires buying into the premium. At this point I am not set up to spend money but if there is a better way that I will have to pay for I can be open to that down the road. For now though I'm trying for the free route. I'm wondering if anyone has some great pointers or tips for making this a possibility.

Thanks for the help in advance!

      I'm trying to install comments on two of my clients' websites. In both cases, I'm able to display the comment submission form, but the form submissions are not being saved or display. Once I click the submit button, I'm directed to the homepage where #CommentForm is appended to the end of the URL. I have looked through countless forums and Google searches, but I can't find any advice that has fixed this issue. I have followed the instructions from https://processwire.com/docs/modules/guides/comments/ exactly as described, and I'm getting no where.
      Like I said, this is set up on two different websites and I'm seeing the same issues with both. I assume it's some issue with connecting with a database, but I don't see anything in the instructions on PW's website that says I need to do anything there.

      I'm working on the threaded comments on my website and for this I need to include the comments.js
      When I do this it keeps on giving me the "Uncaught ReferenceRrror: jQuery is not defined". Whatever I do it keeps giving me this error message.
      It's the last javascript file that I load in. So how do I fix it?

      Hi Guys,
      I am running a page template that contains a filter form that allows users to display results based on number of  comments. 
      Here is what I am thinking about doing: 
      -add new field called total_comments 
      -somehow populate this field every time a new comment is added or removed by admin with count($page->comments)
      -use form filter to display results that the selector form has found.
      Example: $selector = “total_comments>=$q”; 
      My question to everyone: Is this a good approach? If so how do I get another field to update based on the comment module adding or removing a comment?

      Hey Guys, 
      I am using the https://processwire.com/api/fieldtypes/comments/ to  allow users to comment and rate. Whats the best approach to get an average of all the star ratings for the page?
      Any direction is greatly appreciated!
