I've been trying to convert the anonymous comment form to register users. However not only me but other people asked and there are no working answers on stackexchange. So I give up. Now I just want to change the anonymous comment form into a user registration form if the user isn't already logged in.
Besides the html to create the form, which shouldn't be hard to do, just need a couple form fields; what other things do I need to do to make it so that when a user wants to comment there is a registration form with a couple fields that creates a new user and queues the comment for moderation?
If I can't do one or the other, eventually I will just give up and disable anonymous comments altogether and force users to go register before commenting. Unfortunately that will result in a drastic decrease in comments, but if it's the only way if no one on this site knows enough to help, then I'll have to live with less comments and engagement.
I wanted to make a better user experience, so hopefully you can help me do so by letting users register right on the comment form without forcing them to visit another page.
