Hi, First thanks for the forum plugin (again) and I really like this new integration. You guys rock! 1. I posted a couple messages on my forum as a non logged in user even though at the bottom of the forum it says \"You may not post messages\". Is that \"broken\" or am I not understanding its purpose? 2. I couldn\'t find a way to moderate messages before they are posted publicly. Is this possible? I don\'t even see a way for a admin or moderator to delete messages through the Messages option. 3. Is there a way to change the default error message based on the problem instead of the generic all required fields not entered message? 4. This one isn\'t a biggie but is kind of confusing. At the top of the forum where you can click the icon to go back to the original thread, to the top of the board, etc. the name of the \"up\" (for lack of a better word) message or thread is underlined when you move the mouse over it to make it appear that it\'s a link but it\'s not. That probably made no sense but I\'m having a hard time explaining it. Can I easily change that behavior? 5. Is there a way to have the subject of a post/thread appear in the title tag similar to the way stories behave in the rest of GL? For search engine purposes the Title tag is very important they say. Tons of thanks!

I can\'t duplicate this. If I enable in the settings that you must be registered to post - then the message in the footer changes and I can not post.

2. I couldn\'t find a way to moderate messages before they are posted publicly. Is this possible? I don\'t even see a way for a admin or moderator to delete messages through the Messages option.
Moderated topics are not in the base 2.0 release. I have developed moderated a forum version - so contact me if your serious about needing this.

3. Is there a way to change the default error message based on the problem instead of the generic all required fields not entered message?
Have a look at the language file - most if not all language can be changed.
