Hi HFHSoaps,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with spam in the Premium Website Builder Guestbook. Unfortunately, the captcha provided by the builder is pretty good at preventing spam from bots, but spam comments from human users can still be entered.

One option is to use a separate third party script for managing your guestbook and <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/premium-website-builder/306-using-third-party-software">integrating that script into the Premium Website Builder</a>. One such script that comes to mind is <a href="http://www.phpjunkyard.com/php-guestbook-script.php" target="new">Gbook</a>, but there are several others that can be found by doing a search in your preferred search engine for search terms like "guestbook prevent spam" (without the quotes).

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.

Regards,

Christi N.
