We are in need of a new guest book for our website. We have been using the templates provided with MS FrontPage 2003 and we have need more functionality. We use our guestlog as a place for patients to post stories of their experiences, some of which can be quite long. We archive the stories every 2 months.
1) FP guestlog form only has two styles of text format parameters. BR does not allow for carriage returns, but does wrap text when posting to HTML. PRE does allow for text wrap, but does not allow for carriage returns. Both options leave us with messy posts that become unreadable on longer posts.
2) No spell check feature.
3) No preview post feature.
*The only dbase we are comfortable with is Access.
*We have minor knowledge of editing ASP and HTML
*We are a small non-profit charity, without a professional webmaster
*The guestlog needs to write to HTML and send a copy to our email address.
*We would be thrilled if there was some minor user text formatting available, such as ability to Bold or Italic. Emoticons are not necessary.
*Our web host is set up for CGI, Perl, SSI, PHP, .net and the site is hosted on IIS 6.0, Windows Server 2003. Our office admistration uses XP and FrontPage 2003.
