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

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!

Posted by AndreaApril 18, 2012 - 12:53 pm
Susan you might have touched the javascript in the html page aswell? The error message you see is from the ajax-based verification mechanism. The confirm variable does not have anything to do with that. My suggestion is to start over: resume the working version (you do have a backup of the files you have edited correct :) and carefully edit in little steps and check that the guestbook is still working after each step. Feel free to seek further help here :)

Posted by SusanApril 18, 2012 - 12:43 pm
hi Andrea,

I changed the value of the variable 'confirm' that does the redirect to keep only the "refresh", content of 0, and the url (can't paste it here--it's not accepted).

But now am getting the message "Too much time elapsed before posting, please go back to the form and try again"

Had not seen that before. What advice can you give me? Thanks.

Now that you've inspected the inside of an aluminum attache laptop case, close the leading and very carefully inspect the outside. Everybody likes the look of polished aluminum, but in case you prefer, you may obtain one that has a jet black, gloss white, gold, pink or even wood-grain finish. The lining inside might be color coordinated with all the exterior, so the net effect will be amazing.

Davenna, see my previous post, you need to take off messages from the posts.txt file otherwise you cannot use the guestbook anymore.

Posted by Davena EllisApril 14, 2012 - 09:27 pmdlongshoreellis@gmail.com
Also, this message is in the admin section: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 4864 bytes) in /home/content/15/4894515/html/guestbook/include/classes.php(740) : eval()'d code on line 1

Depending on the memory allocated to PHP, there is a limit to the number of messages that can be handled by the script because the size of the database file grows in time, until it will reach the allowed memory limit set by your web host.

So you need to take some posts out from the messages database and maybe archive them in static form. If you look at the bottom of this page you will find the links to my posts archives, so you get the idea.

Here's my suggestion to create an archive file:

- backup your posts/posts.txt file, make a copy

- download the posts.txt file. In the file each line corresponds to a message. You should edit this file by using a source code text editor ONLY, for example Komodo edit is a great free one.

- Select from the posts file the lines corresponding to the messages you wish to archive, say the first 2000 lines for example.

- copy these lines to another text file, call it posts2.txt

- upload the posts2.txt file in the posts folder

- change the name of the old posts file to something else, say posts_full.txt

- change the name of posts2.txt to posts.txt

- go to admin/configuration, select the option to have max 10.000 posts per page. So that now all the posts will go in a single page

- save configuration.

- Go to the html guestbook page (that will now contain all the posts to be archived, in a single page) and save it as archive.html

- put the lines of the posts.txt file that you wish to keep in the guestbook (the ones you did not put in the posts2.txt file), in a new file, call it posts3.txt. Mind that THE LAST LINES OF YOUR POST FILE MIGHT NOW BE CORRUPTED because you reached the memory limit, so have a close look in particular to the LAST LINE and delete it if it does not look right

- Replace the posts3.txt file with the present posts.txt file in the server, upload and rename posts3.txt to posts.txt

- change permission of this file to 666

- upload the archive file and link it to your guestbook page

- you are done. To update the guestbook with the new, smaller posts database you need now to either make a post or save configuration.

Let me know. First thing, make a solid backup of your posts.txt file.

Also consider replacing the log.txt file with a new, empty one (backup the old one first), and then again ge sure to chmod to 666.

I bought this script about 2 years ago. Recently, when someone attempts to post, they get this error: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 8192 bytes) in /home/content/15/4894515/html/guestbook/include/lang/eng/lang.php on line 1. What should I do?

Posted by SusanApril 13, 2012 - 11:27 am
hi Andrea, that's wonderful. I do have PHP experience, so will give it a try--should be easy. Thank you.

Posted by AndreaApril 12, 2012 - 08:20 pm
Susan the redirect html code is in include/mixvar.php, the confirm variable. You can edit it to exclude any text and just leave the redirection, this should avoid the "flashing" you report. If you are unable to edit it (it is PHP language), you can send me an e-mail and I will send you the edited code.

Posted by SusanApril 12, 2012 - 06:13 pm
Trying again... what I meant to write was "is there some way to not have the redirect message?" Thanks again!

Posted by SusanApril 12, 2012 - 06:11 pm
Thanks Andrea, I've been testing the script and did find the setting for post length.

Mostly I'm very happy with this script; it seems to work just as advertised.

But there is one thing (of course ): I'd like to do away with the redirect message after the Add Comment button is clicked. That flash of white, too fast to read--it's disconcerting.

Thanks for your help.

Posted by AndreaApril 12, 2012 - 01:25 pm
Hello Robert, yes. I think the following part of the manual could apply to you. Basically I recommend that you re-upload the php_guestbook.php file as described below. Feel free to contact me if this does not work. Best - Admin

The php_guestbook.php file needs to be uploaded as "binary". FTP clients usually offer the option to leave the upload mode as "automatic file type detection" - this is usually the default - or to specify the upload mode as ascii (text) or binary. For the php_guestbook.php file only, the upload mode should be set to binary. "Automatic" will be fine for all the other files. Failure to do so may result in a blank page upon attempting to login, as the php_guestbook.php file can get corrupted on upload in the wrong mode.

Setting permissions to 755 instead of 777 (server gives 500 error with 777),
I get a blank page when I login with admin.html. View Source also gives me a blank page. I've tried various permissions, but without success. Any suggestions?

Susan you can set a max characters limit to each post in administration

Posted by SusanApril 10, 2012 - 03:29 pm
I have high hopes for this guestbook software. Here goes.

Is there a limit to how much text can be added?

I like your guestbook. I maybe purchase the best version you have. I need to think first, see if there are even better guestbooks out there. If not, I will come back
