Unlike most other guestbook scripts around that act as self-standing entities, our software will integrate into your existing web site and add interactivity to your own html pages
Should one day PHP become obsolete, you will still be left with great static permanent content for your website, instead of ending up with a bunch of unusable software and

Piru, it's because you are editing the page and re-uploading it, without comments. So then, a new post or a save configuration is required to repopulate the page with the posts from the database. Just leave your page alone, and you will see that the comments "stay". Or, every time you re-upload the guestbook page, login to admin and save configuration, this will reload the comments in the page.

Hey there!

I like this guestbook it was really easy to install.

But I've got one problem: When I visit my Guestbook on first page load the already exsisting posts aren't displayed. I can see them after I posted a new comment.

I'd be very grateful for any clue to solve this.^^

Posted by AndreaMay 16, 2012 - 07:27 pm
Jim, the WCS (multi-page guestbook) does not have this feature. I suggest you use a standard forum software for this, where you can create a forum/thread and assign a specific moderator. There are many such software also for free.

I need a guestbook that would work individually on many pages. I understand that you can have this GB on several pages of a web site, but I would need separate moderators for each page of content. We have several members of the team who write their own page of content and want feedback with a GB. I don't have time to moderate all the pages that we would have with just one admin/moderator. Does your script allow for this? Happy to pay extra if you have a script that would have this feature. Thanks and I look forward to your reply. -- Jim

Ryan, if you install top level, I suggest you manually create in your top level web folder (public_html?) an empty/random file called verify.png and give 666 permission. This is because you cannot usually grant a 755 permission to the top level folder, that is required for the script to create the captcha image file. So you create it yourself and then grant a write permission.

Posted by AndreaMay 15, 2012 - 03:45 pm
Ryan, it cannot work this way: the page where the comments end up should be located in the same folder as the php_guestbook.php file.
Now you have the form located in the guestbook folder, but the comments page (index page) is outside, so this is no good.
You can try a "top level" install: directly put all the script files in your top folder, instead of a dedicated subfolder. Then the index page (the one with the comments) will be in the same folder as the script, and it should work. Let me know.

Posted by AndreaMay 15, 2012 - 02:30 pm
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.

Posted by RyanMay 15, 2012 - 02:06 pm
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,

Posted by AndreaMay 15, 2012 - 01:59 pm
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.


Posted by SusanMay 11, 2012 - 08:14 pm
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

Posted by AndreaMay 03, 2012 - 09:19 pm
Jason, thanks for your kind words. I am glad you solved the problem, let me know if you have further issues. Best - Andrea
