CD cover image for free php guestbook script Let your visitors comment on your html pages! The Free PHP Guestbook script is a simple FREE yet powerful php comments guestbook script with multiple advanced anti-spam features, that can turn any one of your existing html pages into a spam free html guestbook, where your website visitors can leave their own comments. You can also easily use the provided template to build a website guestbook from scratch.
An enhanced version is also available with many useful additional features.
If you want your visitors to comment on your photos, articles games, videos, or any other content on an unlimited number of pages, from a central script, check out the just released HTML Website Comments System ®.

PHP Guestbook scripts features

Unlike other guestbook and comments scripts, all our scripts are designed to let your visitors comment/leave a message on any EXISTING html page on your website by simply adding a snippet of code to the page. This makes it extremely easy to build a guestbook/add comment feature  that merges perfectly with your web site style, design and graphic layout. With the free and enhaced versions you can also use the provided template as it is, or modify it, to create a guestbook section on your web site ex-novo.

All our scripts come with strong anti-spam features that nowadays are a must for any website/page that allows users to post data. In the absence of such anti-spam features, any interactive page is bound to become full of junk/spam messages in a short period of time. The spammers use automated posting systems (bots) that are efficently blocked by our image verification system.

Visitors can leave their name, e-mail (optional) and a message. This information will be posted to the guestbook together with date and time of posting. All posts details are logged in a log file, including the poster's IP address (not visible to the public). The administrator is notified of new posts by an e-mail that contains all the details, including the posted message.

The administrator can access a password protected admin section.
