GuestBox template

Posted on 2004-11-28

I am trying to create a simple Guest book, which is fairly easy using the template supplied with the software.

However, my problem lies in adapting the template.  I have been trying to locate all the available options and syntax for webbot, but to no avail.

I was hoping that I would be able to find out how to prevent the s-builtin-fields from displaying the value on a separate line to the label.  eg if using the builtin fields of Date and Time, then on the subsequent displayed page, the label Date is centred on the page, with the actual date appearing slightly offset from the centre on the next line.....same for Time, and indeed, the same occurs for all the other fields.

How do I format the resultant page to display in a different manner?

    Hi Ianternet,

    As far as I know you cannot auto-format the confirmation page for frontpage guestbook.  You would need to use a guestbook application written in ASP, PHP, CGI, etc

    You cannot edit the auto formatted page as Corey has stated but you can create your own confirmation page and then just insert the fields you desire to display by selecting
    Insert, web Component, Advanced Controls, COnfirmation Field.

    Thanks for your answers, however, I have found the solution to my problems.

    I have been messing about with confirmation fields as mentioned by Corey, and as part of the instructions came across the form properties dialogs.

    Selecting the options button, I messed about with the file format property and changed it from HTML definition list to just HTML, and I resolved all my problems!
