    Hi elle,

    It is the little book on the lower left toolbar of BlueVoda.

    You need to set it up first.

    It is in Properties. it is the alternative to .html

    You don't upload the guest book, you add it to a page as you would any other element. Save the page (I saved mine as guest book) and publish. Then link the same as any other page, also note that the page will have the html extention.

    Hi Danielle, you wont believe how many times this has been asked with many giving up, & unless my old eyesight is going? it is not in the instructions to do the part below.

    Place your guest book on the page as per instructions & publish. (This parts done)
    Now open notepad & create just a plain blank page & save it as a text file & name it guestbookdb.php & save.
    Now upload this empty notepad doc to your server via FTP & change the permissions to 755 as tutorial.
    What happens is when a message is left, it is stored in this document.

    Good luck.

    Hello Chris!


    Thank you so so so very much! You are such an ANGEL! I have been trying to figure this out for a little while. So thank you so much! But quick question how does it work, I went to my page and tried to post a message but it still said no posts and it had admin login - but I don't have a login or do I for the guestbook - where do I find it or create it? Thank you again for all of your help now and in advance!

    Merry Christmas!

    Hi, if you haven't changed it from when you were setting it up? Click on the admin link & type password. (You should change this at some time & republish the page).
    Have you got the pages url so we can have a look. Also remember this GB wont work unless published to your server.

    Thank you! This is the website url:

    http://www.danealiasdesigns.com/guestbook.html


    Also, when I uploaded the guestbookdb.php, I uploaded to the public-files html, is that correct?

    Thank you so much!

    Hi, your GB is in an iframe. Scroll down the iframe & the link will appear "Admin Login" click on this text.

    There is no need to create and upload the guestbookdb.php file.
    Just publish the GB, and post an initial wellcoming post, the script will autocreate the file.

    Thank you so so very mcuh to the both of you! I truly appreciate it! I see the Admin Login on my webpage's gusetbook but when I click on it it says "Guestbook Login - Login ...." but why is that there and what type of login do I put in there or does it even matter?

    The admin area allows you to manage posts )edit - delete)
    Since only you have to have access, it is password protected.
    The password is the one you set whilst in BV. Open your GB page in BV, double click the GB, clck on the Advanced Tab. You will see there a field named "Password" . Type in there whatever you want your password to be.

    Hi Chris,

    actually, it has always been like this, but it is an undocumented aspect.

    I'm missing something here. I made a GB page and published it- named guestbook.html. Also created a guestbookdb.php file and downloaded it ( as per instructions elsewhere in the forum). I keep getting an error notice which is supposed to go away with the first post? I don't get how to make that post.

    As i said already, there is no need to create and upload (not download) it on the server.
    When you publish the guestbook page, an error message should appear (due to the fact that the guestbookdb.php file is missing. Just make a post in the guestbook, welcoming your visitors, and the guestbookdb.php file will be created. From that point on, no error will appear.

    Thumbs up Re: Where to find the 'guestbpookdb.php' file in order to get the guestbook to work

    thanks for the QUICK response!!!
    the reason I was so confused was that the very first time I published the GB came up and I tested it but did not know I needed to retype the code number- so of course it didn't work. Then I just kept getting the error instead of the GB every time I tried again. this last time I changed the "code confirmation" to read "retype the number in the blank box" ( so my guests would know what I didn't) and when I published the GB came up and I posted a welcome message and all is groovy!
    It's all so obvious when it works...
    HAPPY NEW YEAR

    Wat do you mean "When I try to view it as an html doc" ?

    The guestbook consists of two parts, a html page and a php file that is the main gestbook.

    Please provide a link so we can see.

    I have read this forum over and over and I cannot make my guestbook work. I think I have done everything I am suppose to do but I have a message that reads:

    Warning: filesize() [function.filesize]: stat failed for ./guestbookdb.php in /home/dogehtpi/public_html/guestbook.php on line 235
    No posts found.

    Admin login

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Don't worry, make a welcome post and the error will disappear.

    This displays simply because there is not yet a posts file.

    EDIT: I did it for you, all is ok now. If you wish, make another one of your own and selete mine.

    So when you say "to make a welcome post" do you mean to go the the guest book and type something in the "message box"? If so I have tried that and it didn't change a thing.

    Thanks,

    I deleted it just to see how you did it and now I am right back where I started. Where did you post the "Welcome post"

    Thanks,

    It absolutely won't work if I do it myself. I read on a forum someone else had the same problem. Please do it one more time and I will leave it alone.

    Thanks so much,
