Free Stuff: Guestbooks

Written by Richard Lowe

Continued from page 1

Here is a selection of remotely hosted guestbooks.

Bravenet Web Services Bravenet's guestbook service is extremely popular for good reason. It's well designed and implemented, quick and efficient. Some customization, although not as much as I would desire. Highly recommended.

Dreambook Unlike most guestbook servers (free and otherwise), you can completely customize Dreambook to match your site. In normal editing mode, you can pick from a variety of templates (some of which were submitted by users just like you), and if you switch into advanced mode, you can editrepparttar html directly to make your own custom forms. You decide what fields appear in your guestbook, and how they are arranged. You can even ask your visitors questions and create complex questionnaires.

Global Guest Simple, easy guestbook service. Not as customizable as some guestbooks, but simple to set up.

HTML Gear Extremely nice guestbook service with lots of options. This service was good inrepparttar 113284 past, so good, in fact, that it was recently purchased by Lycos. Only time will tell if Lycos improvesrepparttar 113285 service or ruins it.

LemNet.Com Good guestbook service. Fast, reliable and very customizable. You can define up to 10 custom questions, and there is a wide range default questions, such as name, email address with link, website with link, ICQ number with status indicator and comments. These can be enabled by checking a box.

Additional Information Maintain Your Guestbook - Many webmasters include a guestbook on their site. Guestbooks are important and must be well kept to be useful. Netiquette - Guestbook Entries - Guestbooks are a great way to leave public messages to a webmaster. Just be nice, complementary and helpful. Graphics in guestbooks are cool - If you want, you can leave a small graphic in a guestbook to add some class. Using Photoloft for your images If you are leaving presents in guestbooks, it's important not to steal bandwidth. Photoloft is an inexpensive way to leave presents without being unethical. Bandwidth stealing - Bandwidth stealing isrepparttar 113286 linking to images or scripts from another site without permission, thus using that sites bandwidth without compensation. Sins ofrepparttar 113287 internet- Bandwidth Stealing - This sin costs hosts millions of dollars a year - and often you don't even know that you did it!
