Default settings (Parameters - component in menu item)

There are some settings in Phoca Guestbook you can change. You can find them here:

Components » Phoca Guestbook » Items » [Parameters] button. But if you have created 'Menu link' for Phoca Guestbook, you must change the parameters in:

Menu » Main Menu (e.g.) » Phoca Guestbook » Parameters - Component. Parameters component settings override the default component settings, so you must make changes here, if you want these changes to be displayed.

 

Warning! (Joomla! 1.5 only):

Security parameters should be set in Parameters of the component (see Parameters button in Control Panel of Phoca Guestbook administration). Extensions can be accessed with different Itemids in frontend of Joomla! site, so allways use Parameters of the component (Global Configuration for the component) to set security settings, not Parameters in menu link to guestbook.
