And that's about all we have time for. 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.

In case you'd like to learn more about the topics discussed in this tutorial, take a look at the following links:

The official patGuestbook Web site, at http://www.php-tools.de/

Template-Based Web Development With patTemplate, the arcticle http://www.devshed.com/c/a/PHP/TemplateBased-Web-Development-With-patTemplate-part-1/

User Authentication With Apache And PHP, the article User Authentication with patUser

Until next time...stay healthy!

Note: All examples have been tested on Linux/i586 with Apache 1.3.28, PHP 4.2 and patGuestbook 1.0. Examples are illustrative only, and are not meant for a production environment. Melonfire provides no warranties or support for the source code described in this article. YMMV!
