$DB_CLASS  = 'mysqli.class.php';

I used to have the Lazarus Guestbook on my  website, I do have the beta 1.25version,  but could not get it to work with WP 5.+ and PhP 7 +.

I already tried: $DB_CLASS  = 'mysqli.class.php'; // Change to mysqli.class.php to use mysqli_* functions instead of mysql_* functions.

So, installed the Gwolle Guestbook with the Add On ($ 8,-) and it works and looks great.

So even with the working version of Randal, because Lazarus Guestbook is not updated anymore, I prefer to stick with Gwolle.

Have been trying different coding for a successful install and finally found it. Only file edited was the $DB_CLASS = 'mysqli.class.php';

and it updated to 1.25 had to edit the guestbook.php file however to TNGv12 standards, the history template did not code correctly. Now it runs in php versions 5.6 thru 7.2 

Satisfied here however, it has been offline since 2014, could be for naught.

I have just updated to PHP 7 and thus lost the use of my Lazarus guestbook. And I'm not familiar with WordPress. I see that the Gwolle Guestbook can import from old guestbooks which I would want. Is the installation and import of old guestbooks relatively "idiot proof"??

Thank you for your time.

I am using Gwolle guestbook after like you losing the use of lazarus guestbook after updatng to PhP 7+. Unfortunately Gwolle does not import export file from Lazarus. I imported the most important messages form Lazarus by hand one by one into Gwolle.

PS: Gwolle is far better guestbook then Lazarus!

When you exported your data from the Lazarus database, did you export to CSV?

Thanks

Hi Brenda,

Unfortunately Gwolle only accepts imports from:

  • DMSGuestbook.
  • WordPress comments from a specific post, page or just all comments.
  • Gwolle Guestbook itself, with Export supported as well (CSV-file).

Gwolle does not import an exported Lazarus CSV file
