Wow there's a lot of spam entries in there. Anyway you may have HTML disabled but you do have AGcode enabled. They simply used [url=http://www.someaddress.com]someaddress.com[/url]

Hi there. I added the Human Verification test to my guestbook. I believe I have AG 2.3.3. (I didn't see specific instructions for 2.3.3. so I used the ones for 2.3.2 I think - hope that isn't wrong)

Anyway, I made the changes to the code, and now I get an error message that says "Guestbook - Error
You forgot to fill in the Human Verification field. Please correct it and re-submit. "

I filled in the field with the correct word, but it's not seeing it. Any idea what I did wrong and how I can fix it?

OK, I noticed that in the General Settings section of the admin panel, there is something called comments password. I thought about this and figured that maybe the reason there were no specific instructions for AG 2.3.3 was because the feature was included. So, I changed everything back to the original code and then enabled the comment password. My guestbook is working again, but there seems to be no password needed to post.

Can you tell I have no clue what I'm doing. Sorry. What should I do next? I was thinking about upgrading to the Lazarus GB, but I'm sort of afraid of doing this. I don't want to have to start from scratch as far as the layout and other cosmetic changes I made.

.Comment password is for COMMENTS not ENTRIES.

Hi Carbonize,
I just wanted to mention that I followed your directions and seem to be having no problem with my newly upgraded spam protection. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Thank you for your clear instructions.

OK, I started from scratch and re-did the human verification mod and figured out what I had done wrong. All is well. It works great.

Thanks!

Hi,

I installed the Human Verification mod, but I screwed it up somewhere. Not being a php expert, I am also in the midst of a multiple sclerosis attack that makes my brain hit on about two cylinders (our of 8 total). LOL My client's site has been inundated by spammers, and one has even modified the admin login. Thanks to Carbonize's reset program, I was able to recover the admin login though.

The site is http://www.treyhensley.com and the guestbook is at http://www.treyhensley.com/agb . If a guest tries to sign the guestbook, he gets the following error messages...

Warning: main(/home/treyhens/public_html/agb/lib/add.class.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/treyhens/public_html/agb/addentry.php on line 9

Warning: main(): Failed opening '/home/treyhens/public_html/agb/lib/add.class.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/treyhens/public_html/agb/addentry.php on line 9

Fatal error: Cannot instantiate non-existent class: addentry in /home/treyhens/public_html/agb/addentry.php on line 11



Normally, I could sort this out myself, but my brain is not working very well now.

I will just replace the guestbook with a different program. That is the problem with these forums... there are a few that take it upon themselves to be the arrogant jerks with all the answers. I know to search, a**hole. I know to look over the forums. I also know that I have a client who needs answers, and my health is not conducive to that right now.

My apologies, Carbonize, but I'll look elsewhere.

Did I tell you to search? No I didnt! Did I point out what your problem is? Yes I did! Seems to me you are the one with the atttitude problem. This is what I said.
No such file or directory in


Which was referring to this.

Warning: main(/home/treyhens/public_html/agb/lib/add.class.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/treyhens/public_html/agb/addentry.php on line 9


Now get off your high horse!
