When, without being logged in, one loads a Rocket.Chat instance in a web browser and proceeds to a channel, the “Sign in to start talking” and “Or talk as anonymous” buttons do not work at all. Clicking on them does nothing. I have noticed this bug since at least version 5.3.0.

Operating System: Ubuntu
Deployment Method: DigitalOcean official package
Number of Running Instances: 1

Thank you for letting me know about this. Unfortunately, this bug still persists in v. 5.3.4.
Is there any way that resolution of this bug might be prioritized? It has absolutely killed my forum.

Unfortunately, this bug persists in v. 5.4.0, too.

This description will appear in the release notes if we accept the contribution.
When the server accepts an anonymous user to join and chat without login, two buttons appears: one for Login and the other to send messages without login.
The component was rewritten to use the fuselage Design System and native hooks to perform actions.

Thank you for sharing this good news!
I hope this fix also addresses the issue of the “Sign in to start talking” button not working.
As soon as the PR gets merged, you can try it out running a Rocket.Chat with the image tag develop

The bug with “Sign in to start talking?” and “Or talk as anonymous” buttons not working persists in Rocket.Chat 5.4.4. This bug makes my instance (and no doubt many others)
all but useless. When might one reasonably expect a fix to be released?
It was fixed in 6.0.0 already.
You can test it using the
develop docker image tag

When is the official release of Rocket.Chat 6.0.0 expected?
We are at
6.0.0-rc.12 already, so anytime this week, maybe today, it should be out!
Edit: 6.0.0 is out!!!

Thank you so much, Duda! I have successfully upgraded my Rocket.Chat instance to version 6.0.0, and I can confirm that guest posting works again.
