The main page for the guestbook is here:

[www.itwriting.com]

There's a link to the code download towards the bottom of that page.

I followed the other link posted here to find the guestbook code but found something else instead. Could you please post it again? Thanks.

It's in the link I gave. However I disabled it on this site because of comment spam; also, you should review the code for security issues.

You are welcome. As I mentioned, you should check the code for security issues.

Guestbooks are vulnerable to comment spam. I highly recommend that you implement some sort of captcha test otherwise it will be overrun.

I can't access the code either.

I'm new to the whole code writing and although I'm learning stuff as I go along, there isn't like an idiots guide for coding a guestbook.

I'd be greatful if anyone can help me.

Cheers

I removed the code because it was not secure. The other problem is that you really need spam protection to run a guestbook successfully - a CAPTCHA image or some alternative method. In the innocent days of 2000, when the code was first posted, this wasn't a problem. So I'd honestly recommend you look elsewhere, though I can dig it out if anyone *really* wants to look at it.

How do you get a CAPTCHA image. ALl this is very new to me, and I'm very confused.

Cheers

An example is the code you typed in order to post your message.

Try Googling for something like: PHP CAPTCHA example; I'm sure you'd find some samples.
