How to enable anonymous commenting

Anonymous commenting allows users to leave a comment without having to sign in with an email or social network credential. As no registration is required, this may increase the amount of users who will leave a comment, however it may also lead to aggressive commenting behavior, as there are no user credentials to hold an individual accountable for their remarks.

The Viafoura default is to have anonymous commenting disabled. To enable this feature please follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to
  2. Go to Site Settings and select Commenting Tool on the left panel.
  3. Click the check box Enable commenting without logging in
  4. Click Save at the bottom
Please note: Anonymous commenters can only post text comments and will not be able to post video or image comments even if they are enabled.
