Follow the link provided to you after creating your guestbook, which should be http://guestbook.netutilities.com/view.cgi?webmaster=login&guestbook=guestbook. Up to 500 messages are stored in any one guestbook (10 are displayed at a time). After that, the newest messages will begin to push the oldest messages out of the guestbook. To prevent this from happening, create a new guestbook, and only provide a link to the URL which is used to view the filled up guestbook.What You'll Get/Information You'll Need When You Create Your Guestbook
The code that you put on your page will provide a link to the place to view your guestbook and a link you'll need to change to sign your guestbook. Your guestbook will contain the information that was posted on it, in the form Name:Value where Name is the name of the input field and value is the preset or entered value. For each name where there is no value, (None Given) will become the text that appears after Name: where Name is the name of the field for which there is no value. Each field will be displayed in this fashion, separated by line breaks. The guestbook will also contain the time that the visitor signed the guestbook, the subject of the message, and the name and e-mail address of the sender. To set these fields, use the names, Subject, Name, and From, respectively in whatever input you choose to have set these values. Each entry is separated by an open line, created by the <HR> command. FYI: Inputs with the names, x and y will not appear in the guestbook. This measure was implemented in the guestbook program to prevent the coordinates of where your visitor clicked on the submit button to sign your guestbook, from showing up. (The x and y coordinates are sent to the program when you have an image submit button.)Troubleshooting
If you have any problems with one of your guestbooks, the error message that is displayed should provide adequate information about the nature of the problem. If you receive an error that says that some file/folder cannot be created/written to, please inform firstname.lastname@example.org of the file/folder that cannot be opened. If the error says that no webmaster/guestbook name was supplied, upon viewing or signing the guestbook, make sure that the link to your guestbook has ?webmaster=login&guestbook=guestbook_name at the end of the URL. Many if not all of the other errors should be able to be solved by actually creating the guestbooks, which are case sensitive. (e.g. Guestbook will not enter the guestbook, guestbook.)
If this troubleshooting paragraph does not solve your problem, please contact email@example.com.
The following is a sample of the links that you will receive after putting the guestbook code on your page (and changing the second link to the place to sign your guestbook). (The link takes you to an active sample guestbook.):
