PloneGuestbook is a simple guestbook for Plone

A simple Guestbook for Plonesites. The current release, 0.6, allows to use the great PloneCaptcha tool to prevent the ugly spamming guys to fill up your guestbook with useless entries.

You need PloneCaptcha 1.0, which will not run on Plone 2.0.5. PloneGuestbook 0.6 is backward compatible and will also run if PloneCaptcha is not installed. Just disable the 'captcha' option in the ZMI: portal_properties/ploneguestbook_properties.


  • unzip it into the product folder of your instance and install it with the portal_quickinstaller.
  • in the ZMI create a Plone Folder with the ID 'guestbook'. Inside this Folder create a DTML-Method with the ID 'index_html' which only contains:
  • <dtml-call "RESPONSE.redirect('guestbook_view')">
  • Specify a mailhost for using the email notification.
  • in 'portal_properties --> ploneguestbook_properties' specify a 'dest_email' where the notifications will be send
  • in 'portal_properties --> ploneguestbook_properties' specify a 'mSubj' the subject of the notifications.

If PloneCaptcha is installed:

  • in 'portal_properties --> ploneguestbook_properties' activate the 'captcha' checkmark if wanted
    If an abuse warning text in the guestbook view is wanted:
  • in 'portal_properties --> ploneguestbook_properties' activate the 'abuse_warning' checkmark if wanted
