A simple guestbook that uses HTML templates for displaying messages and with lots of options. Moderation of messages, email notification to moderator, paging, basic Captcha and ‘star’ ratings are just some of the many available options. The module can also be used as a single Sign or View module, so you can have the messages on a different module or page when required.
When the moderation of guestbook entries is enabled (default), new entries have to be approved before they are visible to the public. This will prevent spamming, swearing or other inappropriate messages to be visible to everyone.
On the moderation page you can approve messages by clicking on the green check-image.
A messages can also be deleted here by clicking on the red X.
