Anonymous commenting and creating products to sell on your blog
How to Allow Users to Post Anonymous Comments in WordPress – by WPBeginner
Whether or not the let website visitors leave comments on your posts is a separate question, but if you decide to let comments be made on your website, should you make people input their real name, email, and website link?
The obvious answer is probably, why not? But actually not everyone is comfortable handing out personal details, of which a name is one. These people may not leave comments if they are made to input their name, which could harm your community and website interaction. So what are your options? A recent post by WPBeginner looks into this more, and shows you how to customise your comment area to allow various options to cover all bases.
