Hey there Armat - I've used a couple of guestbooks in the past, but ended up shutting them down due to spam. These days, for spam control, you may wish to use a guest book that enables image verification to distinguish between spam bots & real humans (called a CAPTCHA). I don't know off-hand if any exist, but I'm certain you can find a service that will couple a CAPTHCA with your guestbook input form. See the wiki article and examples of CAPTCHA's here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captcha

Nice to see you're back biggrin.gif

I agree with you on Captcha and I may just skip guestbook all together. I spent 5 hrs last night trying to install Wordpress on my server and after all the frustration of changing code,new database PHP files etc.I end up deleting it because wordpress is a blog not a guestbook.
Anyway I hope you are doing fine. smile.gif

Here is what I found! Guestbook with Captcha free with decent looking not annoying adds but this could change later since I just signed up.
Here is the example gegam guestbook
