ok, Thanks for the test. I'm working on the other stuff.
I don't know where else to post this here so here goes.

I've been told my AGB isn't working. I haven't received any new posts in awhile. I know that it shows an error at the top of the AGB page from a mod I was doing. I have to get back to that but it still works for me when I post to it.

Anybody got a minute to post a test message so I can see what's going on? I'll delete it asap.


Nope...I've changed it 3 times now and still get same error code. I have to leave. I'll PM you the login and password in case you have a chance to look.
Hello Carbon,
I replaced the code with your and still get the same error.
It's this file....
I haven't got any entries in a long time and when I just tried to sign the guestbook I got this error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected ':' in /home/mtmestas/public_html/guestbook/addentry.php on line 27

I looked at the line but not sure what the problem is.

This is line 27, just the word "Code:"


Can you help?

Well, that makes me curious/wonder why I haven't had them because I was getting about 5 a day or more. I know for sure I'm in their files.

I been thinking about going back to my websites and scrambling the mailto: email addresses. I have about 10 emails listed over about 1500 pages up now.

I was getting alot from France also but when I started adding them to the IP ban it totally stopped after I added about 15 or 20 ips. I don't know about the anonymous ip, tell me more, but for IP ips the IP ban works good if you stay consistent for a few weeks. I haven't had a spam in over a month, maybe two. If you want I can send you my banned IPs list. It might save you some frustration.
Can't access my AGB page. I get this error now. Looked at the line #143 but I don't see it. I attached about 20 lines . Anybody .......?


"Parse error: parse error, unexpected ':' in /home/mtmestas/public_html/guestbook/lang/english.php on line 143"

$LANG["ErrorPost7"] = "Wrong image file type";

$LANG["ErrorPost8"] = "Sorry! We have flood-control activated. Please try again after a period of time elapses!";

$LANG["ErrorPost9"] = "Your IP adress is banned!";

$LANG["ErrorPost10"] = "Your message contains some invalid words. Please correct it and re-submit.";

$LANG["ErrorPost11"] = "You forgot to fill in the Comment field. Please correct it and re-submit.";

$LANG["PassMess1"] = "Please enter a valid username and password:";

$LANG["PassMess2"] = "Invalid username or password. Please try again.";

$LANG["PassMess3"] = "Sorry, but the password you entered was not correct.";

# Days

$weekday[0] = "Sunday";

$weekday[1] = "Monday";

$weekday[2] = "Tuesday";

$weekday[3] = "Wednesday";

$weekday[4] = "Thursday";

$weekday[5] = "Friday";

ok, I'll get back to it later if it comes up again.
For what it's worth, I started doing the human verification patch and ran into some descrepency in the directions. I never got it working. I have since been diligent to put all of the offending IPs in the ip block tool. I had to learn how to do IP searches where the url was given but the end result has been from getting 5 or 10 link and xxx spams daily, I haven't had one in 2 or 3 weeks. When I get one I put the ip in the box. In total there were only about 15 ips spamming me. Alot from France.

So, I found the IP block has been easy and worked the best.

Please don't be condescending.
Could you please edit your patch directions to correct the different errors/issues and then repost it here? It would make having to do this so much less of a pain in the *ss.

I don't remember again but I think the default is user/123. There should be somebody here can confirm this.
