Overview
Comment:The "New Thread" button in /forum is no longer restricted to those with forum write capability: if you lack it, we now send you to the login page instead. Without this, users without the capability to post are left looking in through the window of a building without obvious doors. This change pairs especially nicely with the self-registration feature, but it doesn't require it, since /login also allows anonymous login, which should be enabled for Fossil forums on sites where non-users are expected to visit.

Fix to previous for the "non-constant format" complaint from some compilers. I can't see what they're yelling about, but this fixes it. check-in: 095333fc user: wyoung tags: login-on-post
