I'm trying to get recruiting working for our clan, but I'm stumped on giving unregistered guests access to the recruitment form(s).

I have a form set up with a rules statement, various results messages and questions for them to answer ... expecting the responses to be posted to an 'Applications' forum board I created and point to for that purpose. To try to cover all bases, I made sure that board is wide open, allowing anyone to post to it.

Our site is premium and originally had Guest Access disabled for security reasons. With this setup - the applicant sees the Registration Agreement message and can directly request membership.  But I couldn't figure out how to direct them to the Recruitment Form process - the rules and questions.

So I changed the permissions on all our Menu's to specifically allow member access by ranks (to exclude guests) and added another menu item for Recruitment with 'Guest access only' checked.  Then I enabled Guest Access.  The guests can then see the Recruitment menu item and when they select it, are taken to the recruiting menu screen with 'Apply Now'.  But if they click it, it still takes them to the registration agreement screen and not the recruitment form Rules screen. Arg!

Please advise.

Hi there,

You can always edit access on each page by going to admin panel > menu > content > edit menu.

Also, please ensure you tick "enable registration" and "allow guest access" on Admin panel > menu > settings > main settings > membership & registration.

Cheers!

Yes - did that.

Yes - did that too.
Applicants still don't get to the Recruitment Form and questions.
Started to suspect that having anything in the Registration Agreement box was causing the problem... but no. Clearing the Registration Agreement box just results in the applicant *only* being shown the "I agree" button. Applicants still not being directed to the Recruitment Form.

Also disabling guest access for now since cannot seem to keep guests from seeing Welcome and News Feed panels. The news feed gives them access to some user profiles and the associated activity feeds.

Have since found out that only registered members can get to the Recruitment Form by going to the Recruitment menu options and clicking 'Apply Now'.

I am declaring this a bug and submitting another Support Ticket
