CGI Guestbook Scripts
like to have a Guestbook on their site that people can sign.
If you are one of these people, then below you will find what
Webmaster Techniques Magazine has identified as the top three
free Guestbook CGI scripts:
VizBook Version 1.57 is a very nice and well organized
Guestbook that isn't "clunky" like many others. There
are literally dozens of options for this program, from private
messages to visitor portrait images. Furthermore, VizBook Version
2.0 is currently in beta testing, making the best free CGI Guestbook
Haven's Guestbook Version 3.0
Wolf Haven's Guestbook is another high-quality free CGI Guestbook
that has many features and a very nice graphical interface.
Besides supporting multiple Guestbooks, Wolf Haven's Guestbook
has easy graphical editing capabilities for you to easily edit
or delete entries. The actual sign up page is very nice and
easy to use, including a scroll-down menu for easily viewing
past entries. Easy step-by-step instructions help you set up
Guestex Version 1.0 has a simple, but nice, layout and includes
features like allowing people to rate your Website, the ability
for people to preview their listing before publishing it, and
the ability to add multiple fields. In the scripts demo it had
an AGE option. With the now COPPA law however, it may be best
to remove that feature and add a note to your sign-in page that
"because of the new COPPA
law, only those age 13
or older may sign this guestbook."
Do you produce
or know of a free Guestbook CGI script that you think is better
than the above three? If so, email firstname.lastname@example.org with
information on the Guestbook program, including a link. To qualify
as a possible candidate for this site, the Guestbook program
must be free to everyone (i.e. can't say "for non-commercial
Websites only"). Furthermore, the Guestbook program cannot
be a "light" version of another ad management program
that a person must purchase in order to receive all the features.
