GentleSource Guestbook allows you to put a guestbook on your website. Your visitors can sign it and leave a message. The entries can be edited and deleted in the admin area.

Once you have the script installed on your server it shows the form fields "name", "E-mail", "Homepage", "Title", and "Comment". The field "Comment" is mandatory and the will not be posted until that field has been filled out.

In order to prevent the script from being abused by automatic spam bots, you can enable the Captcha feature. The script then asks your visitors to enter a text they see in the image below the comment form into an input box. The comment will only be submitted if the strings match. Visitors have to ensure that their browser support and accept cookies, otherwise the comment cannot be verified.
