After you've successfully signed your guestbook with this form and
checked it out, you can navigate back and
click here to view the html for your
custom guestbook. You will need to save it to your own server just like you would edit and
save any other page on your server. First you should sign it as is to get the feel for
how it will work.
This Guestbook form uses the following fields... name,email,homepage,hometitle,reference,age,location,private,comments These fields are standard fields... name,homepage,hometitle,age,location,comments These fields are special fields and can be used later for database queries, etc... email,reference,private Example: If you are interested in collecting information on a particular value, say "favorite color", you should use the "reference" field to hold that particular piece of data because "reference" is used specifically at Lpage for sorting and grouping (unlike other fields)
Remember from above that this guestbook form uses the following fields... name,email,homepage,hometitle,reference,age,location,private,comments we do not need to use private in the display since it is just for hiding an entry... We need to write the html and put each entry within tildes. Use upper case and put them where you wish. We can also include date,ipaddress,browser fields to be displayed even though we did not specify them in the guestbook form...
o Notice that date,browser,ipaddress were not used on the guestbook form but will still included in the output o The form field "reference" is a special field and is always specifically tracked in the database so you can check for it using the statistics utility. o Similarly, the form field "email" is also specifically tracked so you can send your guests an email. o The form field "private" is also special and is only used to hide the contents of a guestbook entry. It should never be used in a custom guestbook entry template. o If you wish never to have private guestbook entries, do not put the "private" form field on your sign-in form.
