Many websites require users to login before they can post comments.

How does one do this with Orchard?

It should work by removing the permission to comment from the anonymous role.

Thank you, this worked perfectly.

For anyone else reading this, this is how it is done:

1) Go to the Dashboard

2) Under Users click on Roles

3) Either click on Anonymous or click Edit to the right (same result).

4) In the section Orchard.Comments Feature under Permission - Add comment remove the check mark to the right under Allow.

5) Click Save (bottom of page)
