Guestbook FAQ'S

How do I link to my guestbook?
To link to your guestbook you need to link to:
http://www.milcobook.com/service/gb.php?id=X Where X is your number.

Why do my pictures disappear when I scroll?
We have found that when you reference pictures in your guestbook to a our server, you must use the 'height' and 'width' attributes in your img src tag.

Why is this service free?
MilcoBook started as a project for a client and then grew to be a whole application for anyone to use. So, we have just provided this guestbook service for free as we use it for our clients as well. If you would like to learn more about the providers of this guestbook service then please visit Milco Web Design.

When I try to sign my guestbook I get nothing. Why?
This might be because you changed the setting of the submit button. The script is designed for the submit button to read either "Submit" or "Sign Guestbook". So, if you change the value of the submit button to anything else the script will not work. One way around this is to use an image as the button. Then you would be able to specify what ever you want it to say for the user and still have the value equal to "Sign Guestbook".

Why do my image links break and show up as X's when I know they are referenced correctly to my server?
Since the actual images are on another server and only the code is on MilcoBook's server, you should double check to make sure that you are referencing the image file with the full URL and not just the file name (i.e. http://www.yourserver.com/image.gif)

Secondly, some web hosts do not let outside web pages call images or pages. This is sometimes referred to as bandwidth stealing. If this is the case then you will not be able to reference images in your MilcoBook guestbook code. There are plenty of other ways around this though. One could be to use framed pages and only have the guestbook data in one of the frames.
