Great component. But I would like to ask what to I need to do to read greek. Since the last update it seems that it doesn't support greek. Thank you
Owner's reply

Yes, it supports greek! But I didn't get any greek language files yet.

If you are willing to translate, then please contact me on the project website.

I'm very happy with this. One complaint. A little spam is slipping through. Not a lot, but about 2 a week. I grab it and take it down so client doesn't have to, but I'd rather not have to worry about it.
Owner's reply

Thank you!

Please update to version 2.0.7, then your client shouldn't get any spam entries!

After it has been dropt by the original coders and it showed critical security flaws, we had to migrate to another guestbook on a heavy site.

At the german I found a thread about the "reloaded" version an didn´t thought, it would really be improved, as it said, but missing the functionality of the EB, we gave it a try!

Some monts ago, we started using the relaoded version and, despite some small flaws which had been corrected right away, it works seemlessly!

Bottomline: We migrated back to Easybook reloaded, the best Guestbook for Joomla!

Big THANK YOU for this excellent work!

Thanks for this component.

You could ask in the forum or write me an e-mail in english...

I get a lot of requests in english! It's not a problem.

Arabic should also work fine. See my test entry:

Nevertheless thank you for the review!

I loved the old Guestbook and Im glad to see a revamped version back. Lots of control this time, easilly installed and it looks great.

Downloading the antispam plugin for it was easy, fast and just as simple to install as this. Definately both worth the 5 stars.

It was very quick to install (just install and link to menu). Default configuration works just fine. There are lots of config option if you want more control. Thanks for this useful component.

Well, the old Easybook was never developed fully, only beta, and a component must be secure to use. These version is new, functionality, works right, no problema with captcha -some components of guestbooks have problems with captcha, almost in my site-, but these works fine and do my needs: have a guestbook for my users. ¡Works in my J! 1.5.20!

This guestbook is very easy to install. You do not have to tweak anything. No programming no changes to html, php code or whatever.

No 'powered by'

I really like this component!! For someone who is not into code this component is brilliant in simplicity...


I really would like to change the background color of the messages so it would be in style with the site I am building.

How can I do this ( I tried asking this question on Viktors website but I constantly got the message that there was spam in my text???)
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review!

You can change everything in the included css-file.
