In this two-part article, I introduced you to patGuestbook, a PHP application that makes setting up a guestbook on your site as easy as clicking your way through a series of menus. I showed you how to create a new guestbook, configure required and optional fields, and explore rating possibilities in your guestbook. I also showed you how to moderate entries as they are added, customize the user interface via the patTemplate engine, and protect unauthorized access to your guestbook with simple HTTP authentication.
