    Hello all,
    me back in this area, could someone tell how to add a guestbook to my site.
    I have access to a mysql database thanx to my host, but I'm not sure it's working well (had problems with a counter), but it's worth trying with it....
    But if there's a way to add a guestbook (customisable a little [colors, layout,...) without the need to use a mysql database, I'd prefer this solution...

    Thank you all for any hint, howto, or code ;o)

    Thank you Khayman for the links !
    I'd prefer to have the guestbook hosted by my own domain/site and not depend another site... you have your own guestbook, no ?
    For now, I "installed" freegb.net's one...

    j79zlr,
    Php would be the best option for me, if you too have several examples and howto install them, they're welcomed ;)

    Many thanx Khayman !
    I installed the php guestbook from your above link. It works great, though there seems to be an error when one submit a message: just above the line telling something like "thank you for posting" (that's not the real sentence ;) ), appear 2 lines mentionning code error, but I have no time to read the whole error code because the page refreshes itself and actually leads to the right guestbook page with the new entry in it...
    I find it a little strange, but it does work...
