About the Guestbook Plugin

How the Website Plugins Work

Guestbook Website Plugin

Let your visitor share their greetings, thoughts or comments about your website.

The guestbook module will give your visitors the ability to express and view others thoughts on your website.

Great for customer testimonials or product reviews!

  • Up to 30 field options. Two fields are added automatically to your guestbook. You can also create additional fields in your guestbook to ask questions, or provide information to your visitors.
  • Multiple Guestbooks. Build as many Guestbooks for your site as you require. One for testimonials, one for product reviews, or whatever you need.
  • Restrict access. You can require visitors be logged into an account in order to post comments on your guestbook.
  • CAPTCHA Validation. Automated bots can be annoying, which is why you can require your visitors to enter a "captcha" authentication code before submitting.
  • Response Notification. When a visitor submits a response you can have a notification sent to one or more email addresses. This notification can contain a copy of the response if you wish.
  • Confirmation page. When a visitor submits a response you can either have a text message displayed or redirect the visitor to a specific page in your website.

Secured Administration Dashboard

Manage your Guestbook features through a web based dashboard, secured by your username and password.

You can enable additional, optional, functionality of CAPTCHA, and bad login attempt lockdown for additional security. The administrative area can also be forced to use your SSL certificate for the highest level of security.

Sub Administrator Accounts

In addition to the Super Administrator account, you can also create sub-administrator accounts that only have access to specific parts of your administrative area. This is often helpful if you want to delegate the management of basic adminstrative duties, but not give out the "keys to the kingdom".

Configurable Syntax

Many of the buttons, menu items, and labels, are all configurable through our Syntax Configuration panel. Don't want to use the word "Login"? No problem, change it to whatever you like.

System Updates

Getting the latest version of the system has never been easier. Through the administrative area, you can see what updates have been made, and also fetch the latest files to be applied to your system. Free updates for the duration of your basic support life-cycle (1 year, but can be extended).

Server Requirements

As with all of our website plugins, the Guestbook system requires the following:

  • Unix/Linux Web Hosting Platform
  • Running the Apache web server
  • With PHP 5+, and MySQL 5+
  • Not compatible with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or Microsoft FrontPage Extensions
  • or
  • Windows Web Hosting Platform NEW
  • Running the IIS or Apache web server
  • With PHP 5+, and MySQL 5+
  • Not compatible with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or Microsoft FrontPage Extensions

If you do not yet have web hosting, and need such an environment, we provide affordable web hosting plans that meet these requirements.

Software Requirements

The Guestbook website plugin is a server-side application and does not need software on your local PC or MAC to run. To install the system to your web server, you will have two options:

  1. Use our web-based installer via your web browser

    or

  2. Manually install using an FTP progam such as FileZilla, FTP Voyager, or Adobe Dreamweaver (PC or MAC). Microsoft Windows website editors (such as SharePoint or Expression Web) will not transfer certain essential files, so we recommend a dedicated FTP client such as FileZilla if you are using a MS web editor.

If for whatever reason you have trouble installing the website plugin to your web hosting space, we can install the software for you. Configuring the system will still be your responsibility.
