I want to add a guestbook to my site so that visitors can leave comments/suggestions about the site. I know i could do a Google for guestbooks but i was hoping that some forum members could recommend guestbooks that they have used and were easily configurable plus adds free. Thanks

Of course, without knowing what your setup is like, it is sort of pointless to suggest any solution at all. :thumbsup:

@butterfly: you can get guest book with no adds. There are some nice resources on the web. Of course I do not rember all the links now.

@groovicus: i guess he just needs to paste and copy a source could with the a guestbook in it.

@groovicus: i guess he just needs to paste and copy a source could with the a guestbook in it.


Javascript, PERL, ASP, PHP, JAVA, WSH, Python, Ruby, and about a bazillion other possibilities? Does he want the results displayed? If he does, then he needs something that dynamically generates web pages, which means that javascript is out. Is it being hosted on a Linux server? Then ASP and WSH are out. Does the host have PERL? No? Then that is out. A guestbook that can't actually do anything is sort of worthless, so at a minimum there has to be something on the server to take information from the form, format it, and display it. Unless they just want guestbook entries mailed to them.

If you come up and tell me you want a headlight for your car, do you suppose at a minimum I at least need to know what kind of car you have? :thumbsup:

@groovicus: you wont belive it, but I saw a JS that can do it. The JS was written in a way that it adds the comment to an .txt file on the server, and reload itself reading from the txt file.

I do believe it. I even said in your other topic that it can be done. I just said that is not how I would do it.

Wow just found something Groovicus posted:

$myFile = "testFile.txt";
$fh = fopen($myFile, 'r');
$theData = fgets($fh);
fclose($fh);
echo $theData;

That is in PHP defurman you should look into it...i know i am :thumbsup: i suppose i can make it write to a txt etc aswell with a little bit of editing and using js i guss because PHP cannot send back it is server side scripting that litterally writes the page and sends it to the requester

Thanks Groovicus :D, and am i right by saying that /\
