    Having trouble with the Guestbook from Matt's script achive

    Hi!

    I need real help here:

    I downloaded the "guestbook" script from Matt's script archive: http://www.scriptarchive.com/downloa...tbook%2Epl

    When I fill out both name & comments (both are "manditory") the script works perfectly: see link below to view page in question


    However- when I fail to enter either "name" or "comments", and I go to the "error" page which asks me to enter this information, and I do this - when I then click "send" it cannot find the file !?!
    (example: Not Found

    The requested URL /home/httpd/cgi-bin/guestbook.pl was not found on this server.)

    Why can it find it when you fill out both, but not when I send from the error page??

    Anyone have any ideas ??

    I am no ".pl" guru but it seems to me that the script is used for both senarios so why can it not find itself from the "error" section ?

    Please, please help! I'm going nuts!!

    Hi!

    I fixed the problem myself- it was a path problem.

    I did have some clown (who could only have been one of the 6 persons to view my post) come in and clutter up my page with junk urls.
    (I took the link back off the page above too)

    To the clown-> grow up.

    I will send your IP number to Sitepoint-> I'll leave it up to them if they'll let you stay a forum member or not :-)

    don't even use any Matt Wright scripts, use the ones re-written by a group of experienced perl prorammers that replace Matts insecure and poorly written scripts:

    Wow!

    That was the best tip I've had in a long time!

    They even seem willing to answer questions- which Matt does not.

    Thanks Kevin!!
