I'm giving 4 stars due to the confusing options of the component. This is just my experience although I can now pass this on to you. I*f you have problems with creating a guestbook, it's not the components fault. It's a flaw with all components due to Joomla 3.3.4 - 3.3.6 will fix this issue. I had some issues with finding information on how to change the permissions. While it seems stupid not to look in the permissions section of component for turning on public posting, with almost all, it's usually the general Joomla options, not the component itself. I had trouble with this initially as I tried looking at "Options Parameters" on the phoca website. After that turned out to be a dead end, I found a post called "Changing Permissions - Adding Posts By Public Users" which explains that it's no longer within the parameters but it is within the category permissions. This was also posted by the developer himself in answer to someone's question. Might I suggest that you edit this artile: http://www.phoca.cz/documents/3-phoca-guestbook-component/574-options-parameters by inserting the alternative on: http://www.phoca.cz/documents/3-phoca-guestbook-component/710-changing-permissions-adding-posts-by-public-users to try to minimize any bad reviews relating to this? Other than that, I have to say that this is highly recommended by me and I am one hell of a fickle woman when it comes to my site! As always, if you have an issue, at least try to find an answer to the question by using the FAQ's. Forums and the articles available to you. Contacting the creator is always a last resort. Try to have some initiative people. ;) Fantastic work on this component, Jan Pavelka. No offence intended by this post.
