Website guestbooks?


I just need a bit of advice. I've been working on my new website and wanted to add a guestbook that was embedded on a page on my site. I've added a Bravenet guestbook but the only problem is the large ads that appear between each comment.

I could pay for an add free version but I don't really want to have to do that. I have found other services but am always a bit wary of adding or downloading things from 'free' sites.

Can you help? Do you use or know of a free guestbook utility that is sound and offers a guestbook that I can embed on a page on my site?

If you have a spare minute can you visit the Bravenet guestbook on my website here and post a comment to let me know what you think about the guestbook that I have already added - do the ads put you off? I guess if I put only one entry per page I would cut down the ads - do you think that would be better?

Another option is of course to add a guestbook blog that links to my site - do you think that would work? This would be accessible from both the blog and website using links - the blog version is linked on the sidebar.

Sorry so many questions but advice would be appreciated - hope you can help.

By the way who noticed that the heading on this blog and the weather blog had changed recently? - Bet you didn't!

By the way I boo-booed with the poll on the sidebar - it asked for favourite month when it should have said favourite season - so I've started it again - if you voted please vote again!

  2. Depends on how your websie is set up. If you are using a CMS such as Joomla! then there are a few available at:
