Ryan, this is easy. The form can be anywhere. The important bit is that the ACTION attribute of the FORM tag should point to php_guestbook.php file. Then in the "comments" page you only need to insert the COMMENTS START AND COMMENTS END LINES. You then have to cmod the comments page to 666. The guestbook page, is now the comments page. This is the page that has to be in the guestbook folder and the page whose file name you have to put in admin.
To make a long story short, with the default installation, as it is, all you would have to do is move the HTML for the form (and ALL the javascript) from "guestbook.html" to another page, and the guestbook will still work. Feel free to post again if you need further assistance.

Actually, that would work perfectly.

I could have the index with a link to the form, and have the form redirect back to the index with the comments.

What I initially meant, was that I only wanted the comments to display on the index page, not the form.

If you could help me out with that I would be forever greatful!

Thanks again,
Ryan

Ryan, I do not understand what you mean by "only the comments that have been posted". All comments have "been posted", by definition.
What is really easy to do is have the form on a page and the comments on another page, however I would guess this is not what you need.
If you can clarify what you need maybe we can help :)
Cheers - A.

IM curious if there is an easy way to have the posts display on a second page.

Basically what I want is a two paged web site. The index displays a link to the comments page. The comments page has the form and all comments below it. And below the link on the index, only the comments that have been posted are displayed.

I would be willing to pay for the full version if this is something that requires a higher level of support.

Thanks!
Ryan

Andrea thank you so much, that may be just what I needed to know. I'll give it a try (the 666 permissions).

Posted by AndreaMay 11, 2012 - 05:42 pm
Hello susan, I have two comments:

- the feature in admin to change the posts and log file names is buggy, I would stay with the default names

- these files (posts.txt and log.txt) are normally created by the script. If you create/replace them manually, then a chage of permission to 666 is needed for the script to be able to write to them, this is the problem you are having.

Hope this helps. Best - Andrea

hi Andrea,

Got another question for you... I had removed display of the date in the posts--just didn't want it--but now I'd like to put back the date only, without the time.

It was simple to edit the setting of $date in mixvar.php to not include the time, and it works for new posts. But the posts that were already made, already had the time included, so it displays for them.

So I tried editing the posts file to take out the times, but it won't upload again. I keep getting "permission denied". The posts folder permissions are 777, and the posts file permissions were 644, but even having changed them to 777, permission was still denied.

Is there another way to control display of the date, or can you advise how to get the edited file to upload? Thanks so much.

does this work

Jason, thanks for your kind words. I am glad you solved the problem, let me know if you have further issues. Best - Andrea

Hi,
I have a problem getting post to show up on my guestbook.html. I'm using the guestbook.html.in the zip on the enhance download. My path on the config.php to the guestbook.html is correct (I think).I'm getting the email, post are posting to post.txt and gbook_log.txt. I see them in the 'edit' under admim.html, but they never post to my guestbook.html page, nor do I see them in 'pending' on admim.html. I'm doing this site for client, and she wants to be able to 'approve' post before the appear, but currently I can't get them to appear even without approval.

Please help :-) other than that, your download is the best I've seen on the net.

Thanks,
Jason

I see that it's there, Andrea--thank you for the quick response.

Hopefully this means it is user error.... and I can figure out what they're doing!

Posted by AndreaMay 02, 2012 - 05:31 pm
Susan I made a test and it looks good as far as I can assess.

Hello Jarrod, it looks like the post are not being recorded in the posts file. If you go in admin, posts edit/delete, you should not see any post at all. Make sure that the posts folder has the correct permission and that posts.txt and log.txt are created inside the posts folder. Posts folder need 755 or 777 permission, test those.

Ok, my apologies, I should have read the adobe file on how to get things running! This is a really great tool!

I do have a question regarding posts- Is it possible to show more than 1 post (similar to below)? I've created 3 test posts and each one deletes the previous so only 1 post shows up at a time.

Thank you for offering this service! I have pretty much spent about 2 days looking for a guestbook/forum and after trying about 7 different downloads and uploads, none worked- I appreciate this program.

Install was easy, but now I'm lost and can't figure out how to get into admin to allow comments?

Hi
I want to force people to leave their email address - how can I do this?
Thanx
John

Posted by SusanApril 19, 2012 - 02:25 pm
Ah, that would explain it (the "too much time" message).

So would you explain why a post must be made within a certain time? What if someone loads the guestbook page to fill out, and then is called away for a long time before they can do it? They wouldn't know to refresh first. Of course, I could change the time limit to some huge number, but now am curious how the time limit deters spam...?

On another note, is there a page where I can try out the WCS? It is really what I'm interested in for my client, but I want to see if it also flashes the "Processing post" message. (I've been able to get rid of all messages on that white page, but the blank page still flashes.... :() Thank you.

Susan in principle the too much time message appears if you load the page and then wait more than 10 minutes (600 seconds) to post. This is encoded in php_guestbook.php, around line 165 there is a "seconds" variable.

Posted by SusanApril 18, 2012 - 01:46 pm
If it means anything... I'm now sometimes seeing the "too much time" message here on this guestbook... fyi.

Posted by SusanApril 18, 2012 - 01:46 pm
Thanks Andrea... I don't think I touched any js, but will go back and start again, check everything, as you suggest. I definitely did save the originals!
