VitaBook is a guestbook component for Joomla! 2.5+. VitaBook supports all current Joomla! features like the update and ACL systems. The aim for VitaBook is to be as simple and user friendly as possible. It's main features are listed below.

  • Get this

For users:
* WYSIWYG HTML editor for composing messages
* Replying to messages (level of sub messages is configurable, e.g. replies to replies etc.)

* Embedding of images
* Uploading of images
* Embedding of youtube and vimeo videos
* Smileys (automatic replacement* by typing the widely known codes)
* Automatic url detection
* In the frontend all actions and forms use AJAX requests for the best user experience possible

For admins:
* Full administration of messages from the front-end
* Admin e-mail notifications, with links for easy (un)publish/delete actions
* Import messages from Phoca Guestbook and Easybook Reloaded
* Limit the length of messages by the number of characters
* Full support of the Joomla ACL system

Anti spam:
* CAPTCHA for non-registered users
* Guest activation email. Have guests activate their messages via an email sent to their email address
* IP addresses can be blocked

All these features can be configured from within the Joomla! back-end.

Currently supported languages are English, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, Spanish and Swedish.

With version VitaBook 1.2.0 we've added the VitaBook Latest Messages module, which does exactly what it's name suggests; It displays the last few messages with links to your guestbook.

Vitabook Spam gate


Posted on 06 March 2015
Functionality

I use this plugin over a year on 2 different sites, 2 different hostings with different passwords.
At both sites come the same spam messages from the same authors at the same day, in my case, mostly from Poland - it mean that the spammers probably are not people but robots - maybe I'm paranoid, but it seems to me that Vitabook is made - due to the amount of spam, nonfunctional Captcha and previously mentioned facts - purposely unprotected to allow access for spammers ...... Moreover there isn´t possibility to use other spam protection than reCaptcha.
I think it is spam plugin!

Ease of use

great job

Functionality

the point of strength is the image upload functionality. I can assure that on joomla is the only free extension that provides it.

Ease of use

very easy to use and to configure

I used this to: Personal use on my wedding website.My only advice is to make it responsive

Nice and easy extension to use. But have to take off the possibilty to write directly in the vitabook, as spams go through the re-capcha


Does not work for me

The Guestbook and the interface look very nice.

Unfortunately I could not use it:

the captcha is not showing, so no one can actually post a message



I was only looking for a simple guestbook which works ootb so I will get another one.

If the guestbook is important for your site, give it a try (I would do)!.

Owner's reply: Unfortunate that your captcha doesn't work. Did you ask for help in our support forum? Problems with the Recaptcha plugin can often be solved easily.

This is an awesome component. It imported all phoca items and displayed them correctly. Phocas was not able to do that even after one week of trying.



This is a perfect guestbook. well doen guys. I will donate.


The extension Vitabook is an excellent extension, just because its very simpel. Even to use for non-experts.


This guest book is easy to instal and configure. The appearance can also be adjusted. Does the job perfectly.


Excellent job !
