This is pretty much a basic “How to” for making a very basic guestbook that uses a database instead of text. I go over everything from making the database to the table, the html form and actual posting. This is the second part of this video If you watch this video you will pretty much see the basic idea of what a guestbook is, how they work, and how to make a basic one yourself.

    @kloplop321 thanks.
    I tried that, and it sorta worked, but the CAPTHA box didn’t work. it just said something about it being entered wrong.
    I deleted the DB (i tried to just create another table, but i couldn’t remember the server connection details—i don’t host my website, the website 000WebHost does), and set up a new one, which will hopefully work.
    Lets see

    @JelvinJS7 Sorry to hear that, But I don’t think they are capable of breaking into your database like that. I think you have faulty code. But regarding a captcha, the overall best one I have ever seen is reCaptcha, which google acquired a while back
    Search “recaptcha” on google, it will be the first result.
    I wish you the best

    So i used this video, and set up a guestbook on my website, and it’s awesome.
    But somehow a bunch of companies are using it to advertise their products on it.
    I tried to set it so that you have to be a signed in user to make a comment. That didn’t work, so i assume the companies are breaking into the database to leave a comment.
    Do you have any suggestions on what do do?
    Like a CAPTCHA box that will not require heavy editing to the script or something?
