    Red face guestbook

    www.madmermaids.com
    Hi Guys
    I have just updated to the new build and have been exploring the guestbook feature. My question is about the PHP - were do I find a script? I think I remember how to make a data base but I'm a bit rusty... So any help would be appreciated.
    Cheers
    John

    Place your guest book on the page & publish. (This parts is now 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.
    Also be sure to check the box for the admin login

    D'Son,

    This did not work for me. I tried a couple of test post and nothing shows up. When I went into my Cpanel there was no log of a post saved in this file. Help me please.

    When I try to test it nothing happens. It is that I'm testing it from my IP address.

    Works fine for "Me" to. You may be getting an old cached page up on your machine.

    That's because the file that contains the posts doesn't exist yet.

    Make a welcome post and the error will disappear.
