create an account with forums in buddypress

i’ve added the forum and topics, and want people to be able to comment – I would like if visitors create an account first, then comment.

is it through the general settings, or does the forum page or topic page need shortcodes to do the job? is there a setting for the forum to allow create of an account?

    Greetings and thanks for being a great community member.

    We haven’t heard from you on this one for long and I am doing a regular followup to see if there is still something we can assist you on this thread.

    Just to manage the support issues more efficiently, I am marking this thread as resolved for now however this is not being done to avoid your questions in any ways.

    Please feel free to mark this is “Not resolved” in case you have further questions and we would be back on it.

    Thanks a lot for being with WPMU DEV.
