In Moodle 2.3, there is a Guest user that can access certain areas of the site, even though they are not enrolled in a course. The Guest user will have read only access. Guest users can access the site; however, they still need to login to view anything. Moodle has the capability of turning off the Guest login. This is called Auto-login. This article will discuss how to disable the Guest login feature that Moodle has by default.

Enabling Auto-login for Guests

  1. Log into the Moodle Dashboard
  2. skip-guest-login-course-1-click-moodleFirst the Guest enrolment plugin will need to be enabled. Navigate to Site administration > Plugins > Enrolments > Manage enrol plugins in the settings on the left.
  3. skip-guest-login-course-2-show-moodleOn the Manage Enrol plugins page, click the show icon so the Guest user shows the hide icon. This enables the Guest plugin.
  4. skip-guest-login-course-3-settings-moodleNext, click the settings link for the guest user..
  5. skip-guest-login-course-4-allow-moodleOn the Guest access page, set the Allow guest access drop box to Yes and check the Advanced checkbox.

    Click Save changes.


  6. skip-guest-login-course-5-auto-moodleNow Navigate to Settings > Site administration > Users > Permissions > User policies. On the Auto-login guests setting, select the checkbox.

    Click Save changes

    Now when Guests visit the site, they can view the courses without logging in.
