    Hi, could someone help me please? Idk if it’s just me, but when I embeded this guestbook into my website, the Guestbook flashes white, and you can only see the actual guest book for about half a second. I might of done the actionscript wrong, but could someone comment, or message me troubleshooting please? I’ll send my actionscript if needed.

    Is this possible?
    I have a question about making this guestbook!
    Is it possible to make two flash programs; and no php, apache or mysql???
    one would be the guestbook
    and the other would be a flash php server that all runs on the website?

    for an example would it be possible to make a IO writer and listener in flash that sends data to the guestbook???????

    I want to make my guestbook run only from flash AS3 or 4 no other programs!
    if so could you make a tut ***Please***
    Thankyou! 🙂

    and i found another little tricky syntaxerror in it.
    The “userMSG” variable in Flash is different to the “userMsg” variable you type in the php-script, so it want work for me at first startup to send messages to the database.

    Solution: rename user.MSG in flash to user.Msg and it will work.

    But it is a great tutorial, lot of thanks

    @karenwood89 Heeyy, I had the same problem. You must check the mysql_query in the php file. Make sure everything is spelled correctly. My problem was that I spelled questbook with a q instead of guestbook with a g 😛

    Thanks for the tutorial! Very clear and informative. I just have a question. Will it be a lot more difficult if say I want to make it so that each entry appears on its own “card.” They get to choose the out of 5 card designs. What I really want is for when people are viewing the guestbook, they’ll click on one of the designs, the card enlarges and spin to the back where the message is written. Is that really difficult to do?

    hi Adam – love the vids! I’m recently started using CS5 and for some reason it doesn’t like the html property on the text area gbOutput_txt?? also Flash is automatically importing everything and for some reason is ignoring stop(); on the timeline??

    Error: Error #2101: The String passed to URLVariables.decode() must be a URL-encoded query string containing name/value pairs.
