We want to add a blog to our website and need to allow anonymous users to post comments. I have obviously shared to anonymous users and gave them the post, edit, view, delete permissions. Our server is up to date with the most recent hotfix patches. They are still prompt to sign in though.

Build: On prem SP site.

  • Can they read/reach the blog anonymously (ie: is it only prompting when trying to post a comment)? – Steven Van de Craen Dec 17 '14 at 9:29

Is this in SharePoint 2013? Disable the "Limited-access user permission lockdown mode" Site Collection Feature when active.
