I am currently developing this release due to many requests in the forum.

UPDATE1: wont be release today (tonight for me, it is already 23:30PM GMT+1), still testing, you can apply as a beta tester by contacting me HERE
Small change request can always be integrated, please use my forum and create a new thread in the right section

What’s new?

NEW: protection against Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attack, thanks to Joomla! framework, see here
: use recaptcha to protect guest book against spammer.

NEW: you may prefer security images instead of recaptcha, the guest book now support securityimages5.x.x! 


BUG: Akobook Fix for Number of Guest Entries and Pages  thanks to user mygeek911

BUG: on some host blank page during install or in some menu has been resolved, it was old code having php code embedded starting with <? … ?> (PHP4 support both) instead of <?php … ?> (PHP5 only support this)

BUG: layout bug in all front end page solved, not all view were using 100% of the view



: the installer do not remove or recreate the tables in database if already present. The installer will detect it and propose you to remove or install new table.

NEW: Admin Comments all lowercase…   now you can change this behavior in admin panel

NEW: a new menu entry that can check if you are running the latest version of this software
akobookPlus5CheckForLatest  akobookPlus5CheckForLatesthtml

NEW: refactoring but can be considered daily part of the work -> this code is not MVC at all, and has to be turn into a real #Joomla! 1.5 extension. I consider anti spamming and security  more important in the TODO list at the moment than making the code MVC.


Hurry up any post in this forum may enter into that release as well 🙂
