    I'm following that tutorial, but first I had problems with the config.php and opendb.php file, which could not establish connection to mysql, I decided to put the code in the main page the guestbook.php after that I was able to insert the comments in the table, but when it comes to put the output on the paget all I get is white lines, but I can read the post, I guest something is wrong with the formatting of the html output to the page... here's what the post looks like....


    any suggestions appreciated

    thanks

    I could write you a simple one that does the trick.

    All you need is a form, and an insert query. Easy to fancy up.

    lol....after looking and looking I didn't find one that I could use, most of them use lots of files, and all I wanted was a simple guest book if possible done in a single page, I decided to write one on my own......but yes if you want to post your code I sure appreciate


    thanks

    If I may throw in my two cents here, guestbooks are sooo 1997.

    In 2008 we do blogs with comments, interactive communities, etc.

    You should still write your own, even a blog is really easy to do. Making it custom is much better, and then you don't need to put their copyright and name on it.

    Yes but wordpress doesn't require that you display their copyright they just ask for your support by displaying it

    well is always good to know how to actually do it (coding), that way you understand the inners of the application.... "anyone can point and click"
