Could we please have some info on how to allow guest access to our Moodle sites without needing to use the 'guest login' button on the frontpage? Most of the info in this thread is from 2004 and it seems not applicable to the latest versions of Moodle.
My particular goal is to have some parts of my Moodle site accessible just like a standard website, so that people can get an idea of what is on there without being presented with the barrier of a login screen. So:-
- User receives a link for example to the main page of the website, or say a link to a gallery (I have the lightbox gallery plugin and created a course that uses it to hold some images)
- User click on this link and goes straight to the content without facing a login screen
I don't mind if this is done by URL, e.g. adding &username=guest after the standard URL - this was mentioned earlier but I can't get it to work, I assume because it applied to older versions of Moodle.
Any other suggestions or workarounds as to how to accomplish the same thing would be much appreciated.
