Adding a Guestbook to your website allows visitors to leave comments on your site. Unlike a contact form, with a guestbook visitors will be able to see other visitors' comments. Using the Premium Web Builder, a Guestbook can be easily added to your website.
First, log into the Premium Builder and select the Step 3 - Pages section:
In the Pages section, click on "Guestbook" under "Special pages". Then click the > button to place the Guestbook page on your site structure. Once this is done, click Next. This is what the guestbook by default will look on your website:
The first thing you will want to do is remove the default comments. To do this, in the Premium Web Builder navigate to the 4. Edit section. Then click on "Guestbook" in the site map. The following page will appear:
Check the boxes next to the two comments as shown below and select Remove Selected:
The default comments will now be gone. Once you have a real post on your guestbook, it will look like this:
You can also adjust some settings on your Guestbook by clicking on the "Settings" tab:
- Message Lifetime: This will set how many days a post can stay on your guestbook
- Number of messages per page: Here you can set how many guestbook entries will appear per page.
- Show author's email: You can choose if the person who posted in your guestbook will have their email shown.
- Text shown before the Guestbook: If you wanted your own message on the top of the guestbook, you can enter it here.
If you need to edit or remove a comment, that can be done in the Edit section. We went over earlier how to delete a message. To edit a message, click the "pencil" icon next to whichever message you want to modify:
Once that is clicked, the message will appear. You can edit the message, author, and other information about the guestbook entry:
After you have made your modifications, click "OK". Once you are done creating your guestbook, click on 5 - Publish to update your website. Now your visitors will see the guestbook when they visit your website!
