      Now create an *addEntryAction* DTML Method in the *GuestBook* folder to
      handle the form. This form will create a new entry document and return
      a confirmation message::

        <dtml-var standard_html_header>

        <dtml-call expr="addEntry(guest_name, comments)">

        <h1>Thanks for signing our guest book!</h1>

        <p><a href="<dtml-var URL1>">Return</a>
        to the guest book.</p>

        <dtml-var standard_html_footer>

         I've tried to send some comments to the guestbook, files of comments have been created but those comments
         didn't list out like the above pic.

         is it possible to send the form data straight to the form and then return to the guestbook page with the
         validated entry?

         To the second anonymous user who couldn't get the files to list out: I had this problem too. The
         documentation doesn't specify, but index_html should be a DTML METHOD - not a DTML DOCUMENT! What a
         ridiculous pile of

         In all fairness he has been using 'method' as a synonym for 'DTMLmethod' for a while. It can be easy to miss

         Consistency: dont forget dtml tag syntax!
