patGuestbook come with a comprehensive administration module to manage the application, accessible at the URL http://localhost/patGuestbook/admin/guestbook.php (remember to alter this as per the installation path on your system). Here's what it looks like:
Again, a very simple interface. Use the "New Guestbook" command near the top of the page to create a new guestbook and define some basic parameters for it.
First, you need to specify a name for the guestbook - say, "Voice Of The People". Next, you need to specify an email address to which entries should be delivered (if required), the number of entries to be shown to the user on each page, and the name of the template to be used for entry display. You also have some administrative parameters to deal with - email notification of new entries, moderation of guestbook entries and whether the guestbook should be active or inactive.
Use the "Save Changes" button to save your changes, and you're done...or are you?
