Has anyone made a Mod for a sticky in Guestbook? Sticky is a post that always stays on top for those that don't know. It would be nice to have the first post include a few rules about posting or make announcements, or whatever. I was going to make this Mod myself, but thought maybe it was done by someone already.

Also, is it possible to have registration on the Guestbook, so only members can post. I had a similar GB in perl that I modified so only members could post. Member posts would be posted immediately and any guest posts would go into a file to be reviewed before posting.

I am using phpBB2 board and would like to incorporate the user database from that into the Guestbook. This would sort of force people that wanted to post to the Guestbook to join the Message Board. It also keeps garbage off the Guestbook because of registration would require email verification.

guest. You should learn how to use phpAdmin. All the data is kept on tables in MySQL, so to get at it, you'll need to know a little bit about it. You already know your database name, username and password for MySQL, you needed it to install the Guestbook. Use 'localhost' where it asks for host name in phpAdmin.

When you finally do get into phpAdmin, click on your database name. You'll see the tables for Guestbook. One of the tables is book_auth. Click on 'Browse' for that table and you'll see the usernames. There should only be one unless you have others administrating to the Guestbook. Then click on 'edit' and it will bring up the fields for that user. Highlight and delete whatever is in the password field and then get out. (Save or OK, I'm not sure what it says). Then go to your Guestbook and just type in the user name without a password. You can then change the password to whatever you like.

I don't use phpAdmin myself, I use MySQLMan. I find it easier to use and set up. You might want to do a search and use that instead. If you still need help, email me and I'll see what I can do for you. [email]bre@bayridge.com[/email]
