Newbie few questions

Mar 21, 2008 at 5:49 PM
I have installed and created a site using the template.

1. How do make the Join the group work ?
When i click on join, it gives error.

My sharepoint MOSS is setup for active directory.
Right now every user that i need to give access to others sties in my sharepoint, I have to first create a user in AD, then come and add them to site.

I have enabled anonymous access to this site in question.

Question is how can i automate that any visitor can join the site in a contributor group, so they can post on forums, blogs etc.

2. I dont see an option to add Blog and Forum under Site settings.

Please let me know how or where to find them.
