Setting Up

This plugin is pretty simple to setup. First, just edit the templates, and then it should work :)


The main requirements are as follows:

  1. Gossamer Links 3.0.4+


This plugin gives you users the ability to have their *own* guestbook page. With advanced features, such as markup [optional], smilies, ability to ban users from posting on their Guestbook, logging of postings (for admin's eyes only), the ability for admins to "validate" new submissions [optional], a CAPTCHA system for the add pages [optional], many admin features (such as log viewing, validate new posts)... and more. You can even display the xx most recent entries from their guestbook, on their links detailed page. Users can also preview their guestbook entry, before posting. For more details, see the "Features" section - as there's a lot of cool features in this plugin.


The following features are part of this plugin:


The guestbook_*.html templates shouldn't need any editing , as if you enable/display certain features, they are automatically updated in the template.

You do need to update a couple of standard templates. Detailed.html and include_form.html.

If you want users to be able to show their guestbook entries on their sites then you will edit guestbook_on_your_site.html.
