Top 5 in this Area:
1. When people sign my book they (or I) don't see their post! What's going on?
2. Some of my entries are no longer showing up! What's going on?
3. When I click on the link to go to my DreamBook I get a file missing error!
4. Why do some of the images in my DreamBook not work anymore?
5. Why did the formatting of comments suddenly change?

First, check to see if the url you are going to is correct. It should look like this:

http://books.dreambook.com/username/bookname.html

If it doesn't, you've just linked to the wrong place.

If it does, check to see that your DreamBook exists in our system. You can do this by logging into the management area (from Dreambook.com) and looking at the list of books that appear.

If your book isn't in there, you've deleted it or never created it! You should make it by clicking the "Make a Book" link on the left. This would only happen if you had gone in and purposely deleted the book.

If your book IS in there, click on it. Then click on "Options". Then click "Save" without making any changes. This will force a rebuild of your guestbook, and your book should reappear. This shouldn't ever happen, but it is possible if there is some sort of server malfunction while somebody signs your book.

Finally, your book may be set to be a "weblog", "diary", or "formmail" instead of a guestbook.. if it's not set to guestbook in the Options area, then either your public sign page won't exist (weblog), your public read page won't exist (formmail), or both won't exist (diary)!

That should do it!

It happened to me and I'm so glad what the options/save worked and all my entries are still there! Thanks!
