Advice for an Online Calendar

P: n/a
Can someone point me to a resource for information about incorporating a
calendar on a web page so that it's read only. However, offer update
capability to a couple of people (maybe password protected). I know
that this is not the right place to ask but you folks have been so
helpful I thought that I would ask and maybe someone would point me in
the right direction.

My agility instructor (that is Dog Competition Agility) has a calendar
on her website that is supposed to be updateable by her and her
scheduler. However, they are both having trouble (I don't know what the
problem is) and would like to see if there are any other options for
having a single calendar updateable by two people (in two different
states) and readable by many. Thanks.

Regards,
SueB

If one is going to update a calendar, I'm guessing one is inserting,
updating or deleting rows in a datasource. This capability usually
depends on a password. The method for entry of the password is likely
to be an html form, but the use of the password will depend on the
datasource connection technology used.
For instance a DAP provides a sign in procedure. In an inconsequential
family application I have html pages that allow everyone to look, while
a separate DAP (which is also an htm file) allows those with passwords
and MS Office to modify data. This is easy and quick and the main
viewing is not compromised by the short comings of the DAP, not vice
versa. Creating a DAP is usually a task of a few minutes.
Also in this app, I have a special provision that allows anyone using
my computer, (my IP address, actually) to modify data. I am trusting my
Windows security to prevent problems here. In this case I am using the
oldie but goldie ASP/ADO combination.

Thanks for the information. DAP? Data Access Page? Probably. Is that
the file type? Would this work for a MAC user? My instructor (the one
with the website) used a Mac (probably an iBook) and her scheduler uses
a PC. They used to send a word document back and forth. Not practical.
Thus, the placement of the calendar on the website. Are there any books
to describe what you did with your home setup?

If by the home setup you mean allowing chnges from my personal computer
I suppose many books treat this in a general way.
The ASP/JScript code is not very complex. I just don't show the inputs
if it's not my computer:

<%
if(Request.ServerVariables('REMOTE_ADDR')=='255.25 5.255.255'){
%>
<tr>
<td style="text-align:right;width:32px">
new
</td>
<td>
<input name="date0" title="YYYY-MM-DD" type="text" />
</td>
<td>
<input name="amount0" type="text" />
</td>
</tr>
<%
}
%>

This is very simple and not designed to foil Houdini the Hacker.
Someone, if they could ascertain the names of the input boxes could
mock up his/her own html window location (just as many of us do to
open our webmail interfaces) and make an entry; but there is nothing to
be gained in doing so (except the human need to destroy) for this
simple app.
