    Perhaps you could make the other URL in the post clickable too, if you can spare a moment of your precious time...

    Re: Integration of php guestbook into website

    When you look at the source code of the PHP pages, there should be some ordinary HTML parts and some parts that use PHP language directives. You should be able to copy your code for, say, your page header into your PHP page without too much difficulty. Of course, I don't know PHP, so I could have this completely wrong, but it's supposed to be pretty easy.

    Integration of php guestbook into website

    Hi,

    I am trying to integrate a php guestbook and forum better into my website but have no idea as where to start.
    As have very little knowledge of php and don't want to ruin the site!
    I would like to integrate the guestbook into the site, similiar to the website: http://www.pursuinglife.com

    My website is http://www.clubsouthampton.com

    Any assistance in this matter would be appreciated.

    Hey Justin,
    My 2 cents...
    The first thing you need to do is find a PHP forum script... -- I haven't dealt much w/ PHP - but a good site to look for scripts (free and otherwise) is http://www.hotscripts.com -- I doubt you want to go about coding something like this from scratch, it's a daunting task at best!
    Second - you need to make sure the server you have your site on will run php...
    (A simple way to do this is to follow the instructions on this page: http://www.htmlgoodies.com/beyond/ph...le.php/3472431)
    Third - tinker tinker tinker...

    Assuming you don't have a test bed server to load the script into and edit or test it at your convenience then chances are you will load the script into a sub folder on your active server - (PHP or Forum or Lounge, etc.) Once you've done this - you'll be able to access the script by simply typing in the link for the main forum page, http://www.clubsouthampton.com/forum/ for example, Which will allow you to view what it looks like....

    If you don't link to the forum in the sub folder - then most people won't even know it's there... Once you've completed the forum work - you can simply link to it from your main page, and do whatever you want!

    Side note: If your server doesn't run PHP - you may want to look into if it handles any other Server Side Scripting like ASP or CGI --- similar in user appearance - but very different in coding appearance...

    Well...
    That was a bunch of great advice for someone who <font face="Comic Sans MS">Doesn't</font face=comic> have a PHP script in place and running... <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23>

    The only things you will have to edit is your header.txt and footer.txt file... You don't need to know PHP for this - as the PHP inserts the HTML into the finished document that the user sees...

    Good luck!
    Dan
