Topic: CMS Calendar Suggestions
Can anyone recommend a good web-based, community calendar?
* php/mysql (open source is preferable)
* secure, supported with security updates as needed
* coded well according to current standards
* template system for plugging in any site design
* login that can integrate with wordpress/punbb login
* xhtml/css, standards compliant
* streamlined and fast, not bloated
* multiple users, permissions, categories, display options, email notification, rss, etc
* complements other CMSs I like: punBB, Wordpress, Singapore, phpList
I've found these so far:
It's CGI instead of PHP, and the database is flat files instead of MySQL. Seems to have all the basic calendar features. View events in a grid or list format, and by the month, week, 2-week, 3-week, 4-week, or daily level. Customizable Templates, Flexible Event Definition, User Authentication, Assign Permissions.
View events in grid or flat format, monthly, weekly, daily. Categories, Search, Themes, Recurrent Events, Users and Groups management, Template Configuration. It sounds good, but it doesn't seem to be supported: last release was 2004-12-24.
SuperCali <<== Looks Good
PHP Event Calendar
It looks nice and has several basic configuration options. But it uses text files instead of MySQL for the database.
Most of the usual features, plus Event reminder email subscriptions. But it doesn't appear to be supported: last release was 2005/7/19, and there's very little activity on the forum.
Lots of features and looks nice. Cost is $80. Free basic version and trial advanced version.
