I just downloaded Advanced Guestbook. I have two questions:
1. Is there documentation that goes with it? If so, where? I assume that there is some customization possible and I want to learn how.
2. I was reading one of the threads about spam. I want to start out in the best way possible to avoid spam. I saw two recommendations. (a) Something about robot.txt file. (b) No index meta tag. I know about the no index meta tag. Can someone explain about the robot.txt file? Where is it located and what does it do?
I looked up robots.txt on the internet and found out what to put in the file and that it goes in the root directory for my website.
But I now realize that I don't know how to insert the "no index meta tag". I would assume that it goes in the head of the web page. But Advanced Guestbook was installed by my ISP and I don't know what file to put it in.
I found a forum entry that said to put the "no index meta tag" in the templates/header.php file. I did that and I assume it will help control spam.
My hosting service loaded advanced guestbook in a directory called myurl/advancedguestbook. When I go to myurl/advancedguestbook it starts advanced guestbook. I assume it runs index.php. But since I don't know php I can't figure out how I find the file that I want. I'm interested in being able to add a backgound image and change some text such as "Thank you for stopping by my site. Here you can leave your mark."
Can someone explain where I find this part of the code.

That bit of code would go in templates/header.php
