Finally, patGuestbook includes a template to display an error message to the user when a particular guestbook has been specifically disabled.

<p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <form action="{DISPATCHER}" method="post" name="adder"> <input type="hidden" name="action" value="addEntry"> <input type="hidden" name="save" value="yes"> <img src="skins/melonfire/img/px.gif" width="1" height="30" alt="" border="0"><br> <div align="center"> <table width="550" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"> <tr> <td width="1" ><img src="skins/melonfire/img/px.gif" width="1" height="1" alt="" border="0"></td> <td width="8"><img src="skins/melonfire/img/px.gif" width="8" height="1" alt="" border="0"></td> <td width="532" class="text"> <img src="skins/melonfire/img/px.gif" width="532" height="20" alt="" border="0"><br> Houston, we have a problem...<br>But, the <span class="head">{GB_NAME}</span> will be back soon... <img src="skins/melonfire/img/px.gif" width="1" height="20" alt="" border="0"><br> </td> <td width="8"><img src="skins/melonfire/img/px.gif" width="8" height="1" alt="" border="0"></td> <td width="1" ><img src="skins/melonfire/img/px.gif" width="1" height="1" alt="" border="0"></td> </tr> </table> </div> </form>
Pretty simple, this - plain ol' HTML, no fancy-shmancy gimmicks or convoluted variables. In order to see what it looks like, turn off a guestbook from the administration module and try accessing it - you should see something like this:



That's about it for the user interface templates that can be customized. If you thought that was easy and you're hankering for another challenge, you can always try customizing the administration module as well (alternatively, you could get up from your computer and go get yourself a life).
