You might want to change step 1, if the person is not a member or logged in they wont see it. (or any other steps)
Yes you can. You just have to click the other steps, I have done it when I was not logged in.
Administrator should link this in the home page!
You might want to read your whole instructable again, I found a few mistakes (spelling and grammar) Otherwise, a pretty good instructable for the most brain-absent people! :D
