Hi,
first of all I wanna thank you for the great guestbook..certainly the nicest one I found on the net and I love it that it is embedded on my site rather than redirecting me.
It works great, the only thing I haven't figured out is how to set the link for 'close guestbook'. In IE it takes me to and error page and in Firefox I get an alert that the URL is not valid and cannot be loaded. Did I do something wrong or is there a place where I can set the link to go back to the homepage for instance.

Dear Paola,

In your admin panel there is a form field named "Close Book", there you should state the URL where you would like your visitors taken when they are done viewing and/or signing your guestbook.

Hope it helps...

Great book, I plan to have it open in it's own window and would like the "close guestbook" to close the window - I tried to insert the needed code, but noticed the field length is limited. Is there another option?

Thank you.

Dear Sandra M Cocchiara,

The javascript you should enter into the "close book" field for closing the popup window displaying your guestbook should be the following...

Code:
javascript:window.close();


I believe that the field length is long enough to include that javascript as the "close book" location.

Dear Sandra M Cocchiara,

Well, I must thank you sincerely...

I was thinking about the limit on the field, and thought "that can't be right...so little information? URL's can get pretty long...".

So, I logged in to check...

I couldn't find it anywhere...the part you were eciting is to change the label of the button...for those designs which have that feature.

So...you can find the field for inputting the "close book location" under your admin section "Guestbook Settings" and sub section "Other"...

Thank you again for bringing that to our attention.
