How do I disable the necessity to login in order to use the chat?

Explanation: I want to use the chat for pre-sale, so I do not want to force people to subscribe.

    Hey Ronny,

    Thanks for the question and welcome to the WPMU DEV Communitty!

    You can control the authentication options from WP Admin -> Chat -> Settings. There is different tabs for the different chat modes. You can change separate the chat in the page, widget and site.

    However it is not possible to remove completely the authentication for non-logged users - it is spam protection.

    The login that appears in the chat is not required login for the WordPress backend - the visitors can use the chat with any name and e-mail - so there will be some name next to the messages rather than many messages from example "Anonymous" that will make you lose track what user is typed.

    Hope this makes sense.
