Andrea you're right about the changes to the configuration file I couldn't do that so changed it in dreamweaver instead...really sorry I forgot I did that does that point to something else?

Posted by AndreaJune 11, 2011 - 02:18 pm
I have seen some hosts, like godaddy windows hosting, that no matter what, will make it impossible to make the page writable. The solution in one such case was to migrate to a godaddy linux account. Not sure if this could apply to your case

Posted by AndreaJune 11, 2011 - 02:16 pm
Lisa are you on a linux server or windows server?

Posted by AndreaJune 11, 2011 - 02:14 pm
Strangely enough it appears I am unable to save a configuration change in your admin. However you did make changes and saved obviously. Not sure what is going on here.

Posted by AndreaJune 11, 2011 - 02:08 pm
All looks OK. If you weren't so sure I would say the permission of the guestbook page is not 666. You are positive that this is the case? what about changing it to something else and then back to 666 just to be on the safe side. You did not touch the code correct?

Posted by AndreaJune 11, 2011 - 02:02 pm
Lisa any chance this is an html problem? Did you look at your guestbook source code to see if the messages are there but maybe do not show beacuse that are in the wrong place in your html layout? Does your page includes the comments start and comments end lines? What if you temporarily swap your guestbook,html page with the default one provided in the zip, double check permission and try again?

Lisa if you make a private post with your guestbook address and set your admin password to the default I will have a look

Posted by LisaJune 11, 2011 - 01:41 pm
Hi there thanks very much for helping...yes both files are in thisismydomain.com/guestbook/ and I've named the page guestbook.html I can see the guestbook page and submit a post but it just doesn't show on the wall?

Posted by AndreaJune 11, 2011 - 01:22 pm
Lisa check that in admin, configuration, the first field "guestbook page name" corresponds to the name of your guestbook file. For instance, for this very guestbook, this field is "free_php_guestbook_test.html". Also, be sure your guestbook page is in the same folder as php_guestbook.php.

Posted by LisaJune 11, 2011 - 12:48 pm
Hi Andrea...yes it definitely has a 666?

Posted by AndreaJune 11, 2011 - 12:41 pm
Lisa, double check that your html guestbook page has a 666 permission

Thank you Andrea, I'll give your suggestions a good go.

Dave the sample guestbook is, well, a simple sample (sorry about that) html page that is included in the zip file that you can freely download from the guestbook home page

I know I am jumping the gun a bit but I JUST heard about this software and am in the process of installing it on my website. Being the impatient type that I am I noted the documentation mentions a sample guestbook but I have been unable to find it on the site. I would love to see a fully configured sample site that I can start out with and modify as I need. Later once I get comfortable with the software I can do a complete re-design.

Does anyone know if there is a complete "sample" guestbook setup as mentioned in the docs that I can use as a starting point. Thank you for ANY help.

Posted by AndreaMay 31, 2011 - 08:10 pm
Steve I answered on the captcha, did you check the things I pointed out to you? The suspicious activity thing has to do with the javascript on the guestbook page. Did you try using the provided template "as it is"? It is quite easy, on building a new page, to screw up the javascript.

Andrea's Reply:
Steve the permission is not modified within the script, it is usually assigned by using your ftp client, the one you use to upload your files. The captcha not showing could be a permission problem with the main folder. Also check you have the GD image library enabled in your PHP installation (you could check this with your host).
Steve's Reply:
Thank you for this reply, but I still have issues, I will check about the GD image library with my host.
PS: You must have the patience of a saint! Thanks to you from all of us!!

I have a problem which it seems loads of others do, it's that I don't have a captcha, when tring to post I get a message 'Form processing halted for suspicious activity' and I don't get a message in my e-mail account. I've set my permissions on the html pages to 666 like Andrea suggests. I'd like to trim some of the dis-allowed words/strings, I alter them and save but it keeps going back to how it was.
Like most I'd *love* to see a FAQ I see it was going to be done in September last year. I'd really appreciate a bit of help here. Steve

I'm still trying to get a Captcha image on my Guestbook, haven't found the places where I have to alter 777 permissions and when I try to make a test post, it says I have triggered off some suspicious activity! I'll keep banging at it, but help if you can, I'd appreciate it.

Posted by SteveMay 30, 2011 - 03:03 pmstevestuartdj@hotmail.co.uk
I can't find where to alter the posts to 777 etc. Gordon Bennet I've looked all over and it's really bugging me now!
Also, if that weren't enough - my capcha isn't working, there's just a red cross instead.
I'll keep going on this 'cos I hate to give up, but I'd sure appreciate a helping hand if there is one? Steve

Thanks Steve mind that the new antispam feature is not present in the last wcs version, will be added in a future release. Cheers Andrea

Posted by Steve L.April 30, 2011 - 10:18 pm
Testing to checkout the new antispam features...

I've been very happy with the older WCS version, BTW.
