Hidden Author module allows users to hide their real user name when posting nodes or comments. It works by just activating the checkbox "Post anonymously" in the form. Once sent, the post will be shown as published by an anonymous user. Only users with permission "see original author" will be able to access such information.

Dependencies

To use anonymous comments this module will need Node Comments. (#979644: Anonymous Comments? - only with nodecomments)

Configuration

Anonymous nodes
Set the following settings:

  • Grant permission "post anonymous nodes",
  • Enable "Post anonymously" in section "Submission form settings" of the content type.

Anonymous comments
Enabling anonymous comments is not done on the nodecomment node type itself. Instead it is done at the Edit tab of the main node type. So you can decide per main node type if you want to allow its comments to be anonymous.
E.g. if you want to allow anonymous comments on forum nodes, go to admin/content/node-type/forum. Under "Comment settings" enable "Post comments anonymously".

Set the following settings:

  • Grant permission "post anonymous comments",
  • Enable "Post comment anonymously" in section "Comment settings" of the content type that should allow anonymous comments,
  • Enable "Post anonymously" in section "Submission form settings" of the content type used for comments.
