Hi all (posting a load of questions today… but I'm new to Alfresco and I'm trying to cope the beast),

I have few questions about the Guest user:

1) Can guest access be disabled?
2) Can the Guest Home space be disabled/hidden/removed?
3) Is there an URL that forces access to the Web Client as a guest?

The behaviour regarding #3 is a bit strange…

I've noticed that the very first time that I access the http://<myserver>/alfresco URL, the web client automatically connects to the appllication as a guest user. Fine.

But as soon as I do my first login as an authenticated user and then I logout and then I type again the http://<myserver>/alfresco URL, the application this time  automatically redirects to the logon URL: http://<myserver>/alfresco/faces/jsp/login.jsp.

So, is there a way to "force" the login as guest? Ideally, the login form could have a "Guest" button to simplify this…
