Are there any java forums/can you change this one so that it doesn't require a login system?

Hey ppl

Just wondering if there is any reasonable way to get rid of the login/registration system on jforum or if you know of any java forums/bulletin boards etc that do not require a login?

I already have my own secure login system set up for my site with pages that only registered users can access. I want to add a message board/forum but making the user login again/have to register again just for the forum seems a bit backwards.

Ideally, a forum that doesn't require a login would be great as I could edit it a bit and ensure the user has logged in previously, if they haven't I can bump them bk to the login screen.

Any ideas? Any style within reason will do

Thanks

JForum can be configured to allow anonymous posting, i.e. w/o registration and login. Drawback is that all posts are from "Anonymous", so unless people put their names in posts (and even then) it can be difficult to follow a topic.

Possibly but it would still look weird as there would be a login option etc unless i rooted around and cut these out of the source.

The Anon is a bit annoying. Ahh well, i'm not sure if i'm gonna find what i'm looking for. I may just have a make my own basic one
