The Easy and free PHP HTML comments software for your website - Hundreds of happy users worldwide!Let your visitors comment on your html pages! The Free PHP Guestbook script is a simple FREE yet powerful php comments guestbook script with multiple advanced anti-spam features, that can turn any one of your existing html pages into a spam free html guestbook, where your website visitors can leave their own comments. You can also easily use the provided template to build a website guestbook from scratch.
An enhanced version is also available with many useful additional features.
If you want your visitors to comment on your photos, articles games, videos, or any other content on an unlimited number of pages, from a central script, check out the just released HTML Website Comments System ®.
PHP Guestbook scripts featuresUnlike other guestbook and comments scripts, all our scripts are designed to let your visitors comment/leave a message on any EXISTING html page on your website by simply adding a snippet of code to the page. This makes it extremely easy to build a guestbook/add comment feature that merges perfectly with your web site style, design and graphic layout. With the free and enhaced versions you can also use the provided template as it is, or modify it, to create a guestbook section on your web site ex-novo.
All our scripts come with strong anti-spam features that nowadays are a must for any website/page that allows users to post data. In the absence of such anti-spam features, any interactive page is bound to become full of junk/spam messages in a short period of time. The spammers use automated posting systems (bots) that are efficently blocked by our image verification system.
Visitors can leave their name, e-mail (optional) and a message. This information will be posted to the guestbook together with date and time of posting. All posts details are logged in a log file, including the poster's IP address (not visible to the public). The administrator is notified of new posts by an e-mail that contains all the details, including the posted message.
The administrator can access a password protected admin section.

popular, fully functional
software currently in use on hundreds of websites worldwide.

- The HTML Website Comments System is a sophisticated script that allows
you to easily plugin comments to any page of an existing html/static
website. Great if you have galleries of images, software collections,
articles, games, movies, or any kind of content on which you wish your
visitors to comment. There is no limit to the number of pages you can have
visitors comment on, while controlling everything from a single, central
This leaves you the freedom to build your website the traditional, easy and solid way: HTML. Use your favorite web editor, such as dreamweawer or frontpage to build your site, and then plugin the interactivity of a blogging system with our Website PHP Comments System. In the Website Comments System admin section you can configure the system, set global variables, set the default configuration for the new guestooks, create an unlimited number of guestbooks (that is adding comments feature to any number of html pages on your website), edit/block/delete guestbooks, edit/approve/delete the posts in any guestbook.

The WCS is easy and intuitive to setup and use. If however all you need is a one page guestbook or adding comments to just one page, it is probably more convenient to go with the free or enhanced guestbook versions as these will allow a more immediate setup. On the other hand, if you plan to have visitors comment on several pages, the central control, additional features and increased flexibility provided by the WCS can't be beated.
