Hi, i'm new to web design, well doing it with dreamweaver anyway.
I'm currently redoing one of my sites in Dreamweaver CS3

I want to insert a guest book or something where my customers can leave comments on a testimonials page.

Ive got one on my current site http://www.pcplastering.biz/#/testimonials/4532165182 but that was built with online sitemaker software and was easy to insert.

Ive found a couple of various ones online but for some reason or another don't like them. (I do not want smileys!)

What is the easiest way for me to achieve this? Just to let you know I haven't got a clue when it comes to java etc (i'm trying to learn)

Any help greatly appreciated.

Paul

Hi Thanks, I think I need a total idiots guide to JS as i'm even stuggling where to start with that!

I'm ok at building basic sites (text images etc in dreamweaver) but anything else like php & JS I think I need the total idiot beginners start up edition!

With the one I showed you all you have to do is post some code into a div. I have used it in a few places and it works really well. Saves time mucking about with JS too much.

yeah I have been pasting the code, but when previewing all I get is a blank div box

Have you been viewing it on the web? Because it is remotely hosted it won't show up when previewing locally. If you've got it on the web then give us a URL and I'll see if I can help.

Then you won't see it until it is live. Things to watch out for when you are building are that you give the comments div room to 'grow' and don't specify a height on it. You'll see it in action when it is on the web. I have used it here...
