The Flat File PHP Guestbook is designed to be lightweight, easy on the server, and simple to install, whilst still providing a number of important features! The script should run on any server with PHP 4+! Features include:
  • Automatic Email notification of new comments (can be enabled or disabled)
  • Easy to set up and run (just change the username and password for the admin area and upload the files!)
  • reCAPTCHA support to help prevent spam (optional, and very easy to configure)
  • Administration editing of comments
  • Support for smilies (with a few basic ones included)
  • Comments can require Administrator approval
  • Comments can require a valid email address
  • Optionally allow the user to post their own website address
The script is designed to be easy to include in your own template, or to use as a standalone page. The page appearance can be easily edited through the included CSS file if you want to, without the need to edit any HTML directly.
