We have a wordpress site at and I cannot figure out how to allow folks that aren't signed in to post a reply.  You can type in the reply box and get past captcha but the reply isn't posted.  This doesn't happen when you are logged-in.  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

    One of the options is "only allow registered users to comment".  Make sure it is disabled.

    The other settings have to do with moderation and requiring fields.  Make sure those settings are appropriate for what you want to achieve.
