Chapter 1: Using a third-party service

Searching on google you will find a lot of Guestbook services.

Choose a service you like and embed the Guestbook into WordPress using an iFrame.

Simply paste this snippet of HTML code into your post:

<iframe src="guestbook url"
style="width:615px; height:800px;
border-color:#990033;
border-style:solid;
border-width:0px"
scrolling="yes" >
</iframe>

And change the parameters in red.
- Guestbook url: will be provided by the guestbook service you choose
- Changing the other two parameters you change width and height of the iframe displaying your guestbook.

A good and free Guestbook service provider is: UltraGuest

Once you signed up to UltraGuest go to Account=>Link Code and you will find a code like this:

<!-- UltraGuest HTML Code Start -->
<center>
[ <a href="http://www.ultraguest.com/view/....................">View Guestbook</a> ]
[ <a href="http://www.ultraguest.com/sign/...................">Sign Guestbook</a> ]
<br><a href="http://www.ultraguest.com"><font size="1">Free Guestbook by UltraGuest.com</font></a>
</center>
<!-- UltraGuest HTML Code End -->

(In the code you will find numbers instead of the dots)

The URL you need to put into the iFrame is the View Guestbook one, hence:

http://www.ultraguest.com/view/....................

Chapter 2: Using only WordPress

You could add a new page to your WordPress site and allow comments on it. That's your guestbook.
