    I've installed Sitefinity 3.7 Community Edition.
    Using Forums module with ability to post messages without registration (anonymous users).
    But in this case site user can only enter post title and post content.
    Is it possible to make some more fields on this page (post message) ? For example user name and user email ?
    I know that I can use registration but it is smth different vs. just entering name and email on same page.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Serge,

    The current implementation does not support adding custom fields. It is possible to extend the module and its templates, but you will have to create a custom data layer and query the database each time for each user which could cause some performance issues. The module will be Generic Content based from Sitefinity 4.0 where you will be able to use metakeys which are dynamic and internally persisted.

    Best wishes,
