Here you can download the PHP script of the popular guestbook "myPHP Guestbook" in a completely reworked, brand-new version for your homepage for free.
This package, provided for download, converts the SQL database connection to MySQLi and updates the guestbook script to the latest PHP versions. The package is provided without advertising.
At the same time, a whole range of new functions have been added or extensively revised, such as:
- A completely renewed and highly effective spam filter without captcha or annoying security checks has been implemented, which automatically and reliably scans entries for numerous different indicators of spam and reliably prevents critical bot entries.
- Optional functions for photo upload, quick and easy quoting of selected guestbook entries with one click and a star rating function as well as a search function have been added to the program.
- Multilanguage options: Language selection for the guestbook is easily modified in the Admin Control Panel and, by request, may also be individually selected by visitors to the site:
- Responsive design: Automatic size adjustment of the guestbook to the display device for optimal presentation on desktop PCs, tablets and smartphones.
- All input fields, with the exception of the name and the guest's contribution, can be shown or hidden individually with one click each. The same applies to the BBCode buttons, emojis, the search function and the "star rating". If you want, you can also display your own banner and a custom greeting and/or introduction text with just a few clicks.
- The guestbook can also be used as a blog, travel diary or similar, in which only the admin can publish articles without public access.
- ... and much more.
The download includes all necessary files for a complete new or first-time installation including installer, as well as for an update of already existing installations of the "myPHP Guestbook" versions 3.x.
In addition, a supplementary package has been made available for download:
Under the link "myPHP Guestbook 'include'-additions" some adapted files including two demo pages were compiled, with which it should also be possible for less experienced PHP users to integrate the guestbook via PHP include on request (not suitable for CM systems; basic knowledge of PHP, HTML and CSS is necessary).
