Integrating Guest Book into WP (5 posts)

    I run a community-based website using WP 1.5.2 and I am trying to integrate Advanced Guestbook 2.3.3 (by http://www.proxy2.de) into the site. I started by making a Page and adding <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/gbook1/index.php'); ?> into the Loop. It seems to work as it shows up the first page of the Guest Book in the content as expected in the theme. But when I click on the links (eg "next page" or "admin" links) it gives me an error 404. Does anyone know what I might be missing? My site is at http://www.airdrie.net/weblog2 (the URL for the Guestbook is http://www.airdrie.net/weblog2/guestbook2) Thanks.

    Not to distract you entirely, but have you considered using WP to actually handle the guestbook ?

    Thanks Podz. It seems a much better idea. The only question I have though is - can I port the existing entries from my guest book to this and is this easy to achieve?

    I don't know - how many entries do you have ? I recently moved a guestbook from a crashed db into a wp version and had to do it by hand ..
    What formats can you export the existing data in ?

    The Guestbook is stored as tables in mySql (use cPanel) and can be exported via a number of formats (csv, xml, sql). I am not too familiar with mySql so what do you think is the easiest way to export and integrate these entries into the wp guestbook?
