Hi,

This is my first post.

I am redesigning a website, which is using v.2.2 and I have no documentation on how this guestbook works.

My immediate problem: the background and fonts are both black and I'm not sure how to change them. In the code it looks like there should be a css file but there is none.

Can anyone help me get back up and running?

First off find carbonize's update file and update to the new version of the guestbook. As the 2.2 version has an exploit that allows in hackers.

I must be blind. I don't see any guestbook files to download. Not on the site you directed me to or Carbonize's site.

If 2.2 is like 2.3.1 then all colours can be changed via the admin section. As to my exploit fix do a search in this forum for 2.2. exploit fix.

OK, I downloaded the 2.2 exploit fix. I still can't figure out how to change the font and background colors. I went into templates/com.php and panel-style php and manually changed them there but that didn't work.

Does my problem have anything to do with hackers? I will upgrade to the lastest and greatest version but now am obsessed with making this file visible.

Here is the link to the site I'm working on:

In admin do you have both background colour and text colour as lack? If not they have edited your header.php file in templates.

No, the background is black and the text is set to white. The header file looks as though it's referring to a css file, though. There isn't one in the directory.

It is a built in css. And you can change all your font and background colors in the admin/styles section of the guestbook.

Well technically you can....but I can't. I fill in the data and press submit, upload my file and it looks the same....black on black.

No files to upload if you are doing it correctly. Contact me on msn or yahoo.

in that case check your header.php file in templates.

Here's my header file:

<html>

<head>

<title>$LANG[FormSelect]</title>

$LANG[metatag]

<meta name="keywords" content="guestbook, php, script, mySQL, free, advance">

<style type="text/css">

<!--

.font1 { font-family: $VARS[font_face]; font-size: $VARS[tb_font_1]; color: $VARS[text_color] }

.font2 { font-family: $VARS[font_face]; font-size: $VARS[tb_font_2]; color: $VARS[text_color] }

.font3 { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 7.5pt; color: $VARS[text_color]; font-weight: bold}

.select { font-family: $VARS[font_face]; font-size: 9pt}

.input { font-family: $VARS[font_face]; font-size: 9pt}

-->

</style>

</head>

<body bgcolor="$VARS[pbgcolor]" link="$VARS[link_color]" vlink="$VARS[link_color]">

I also tried adding a font color tag right in the code but that didn't work either.

Any other suggestions as to why this is hosed?

And, is this the work of a hacker? I guess I thought they just visited a site and wrote nasty comments.

Can you email me your username and password so I can have a look in the admin?
