Threaded View
Not having anything else on - i think i'll write a php guestbook  
suitable for windows webhosting .

I say windows webhosting because i cant be arsed with all that linux  
permission crap .

Think about it , Man can go to the moon , But you still need to fart  
around with a simple setting on poxy linux webspace .

But putting that aside , Do you have any likes or dislikes when it comes  
to guestbooks ? .

Re: php guestbook

Try to see other Guestbook scripts.

Don't allow HTML. Allow ONLY BBCode.

one thing is for sure, you don't have to mess with any 'linux permission  
crap' to make a PHP guestbook on linux.

use a database.

Re: php guestbook

Only if you made a file based guestbook and even that wouldn't be too
hard. You only needed to set the permissions to 766 on each file you
wanted to read / write and it would work :)

Yer what? Windows ACLs are nicer to use?

If PHP is installed as a module in Apache the only requirement is that
it can be read - just like any other file served on a web server.

As an exercise they're great - really nice for getting used to things
like XSS exploits and database usage. In fact I must have re-used code
I wrote for a guestbook a few years back many times over.

However, as an element in a web-site they are dreadful. The thing you
learn firstly and foremost when web-developing is the concept of
minimilism. If something doesn't have a critical purpose it may as
well not be on the site; it makes it look amaturish and wastes
precious screen real-estate.

Mention guestbooks in and you'll have be sprawling
at the bottom of a few kill files ;]

You cant even define a background colour on your own website [1] .

So what chance anybody else regarding you as being anything else but a  
newbie who has yet to attain clue .

[1] if you assume everybody else uses the default windows white then  
what else do you assume .
