Over a year ago we offered a simple guestbook, that was available to your sites by a simple link in the format of http://...../cgi-bin/guestbook.cgi?USERNAME - where username was unique to yourself.

As you may have noticed this has not been linked from our support site for over a year now in an effort to phase this out as it has some serious issues with comment spamming.

If you have "ever" used this service and are no longer using it, could i ask you to email us with details so that we can fully remove your old guestbooks from the servers as a step forward to totally phasing them out.

There is a new guestbook that has captcha signing and many more features available via our auto script installers at http://script.34sp.com

If anyone has any questions regarding this please do let us know.

We will mail all users that we believe used this guestbook in the near future but would rather try to get rid of some slowly first.

At present we believe there are around 800 people who have at one time or another used this service.

Just to bump this post , we will shortly start mailing people that we can identify as being users of this system as it will be phased out over the upcoming weeks as there are a lot better solutions available to people now.

Mails are going out to the email addresses that we are able to obtain from the signup forms on this today relating to this change.

On October 19th the ability to post to the guestbooks will be removed, and two weeks later the guestbooks will be removed completely from the system.

If neccesarry it is possible to create a CSV file of the data in the guestbooks - but it takes a little bit of work:

What you need to do is login to the admin

http://support.34sp.com/cgi-bin/guestbook.cgi?admin
<enter the username and password>

Now the Custom HTML Display take the contents of this and back them up
somewhere safe (text file on your computer or similar)

Then simply change the contents of the text box to

<!--"GB COMMENTS"-->
$name,$mail,$uri,$comments<br>
<!--"GB COMMENTS"-->


Click apply changes and then visit your guestbook and you should have a
comma seperated list of the data.

Then simply change it back again using the stored details that you took from the Custom HTML Display box earlier and it will again display.
