Calendars on the web

P: n/a
I am looking for a calendar program or script to set up calendars for my low
income business based site. I want to put regular events and such. I want
to make it available to most web audiences (so would have to be simple
programming wise). Trying to find a free source that will be easier then
hard coding a table to do the job.

Any ideas?

thanks,

Suggestion: Post is a more suitable newsgroup.
This is javascript, typically a client (=browser) language.

WHat you need is a serverbased language, so all your dates and suchs will be
stored permanent somewhere (database/flat file) for all visitors to see.

Try posting this question at a serversidelanguage newsgroup.
You might get lucky with comp.lang.php

If you have access to a Mac, Apple's iCal is a terrific way to publish
calendars on the web. My own is located here:

You didn't mention which scripting language.

Try hotscripts.com or aspin.com (asp only).

A) For a mere list of events, HTML of course suffices; but I take a
calendar as showing a page of dates at a time, defined by a list of
events and event-rules.

B) It appears that you want to publish a calendar of events, for which
javascript is reasonable.

C) If you want to allow user-updating, then the users must be able to
transfer data upwind; this could be done, I think, with a Web form
submitting updates to a server process which would return a modified
page; in this case, only date data that will be shown should be
downloaded.

<URL:http://www.merlyn.demon.co.uk/js-date6.htm> has demonstration B-
type code. It handles annual events (such as a birthday) and once-off
events (such as a date-of-birth); and shows EU Summer Time change dates.

It does not yet handle rules such as the Spring Holiday (first Monday of
May) or Quadragesima (Easter-42), for which there is code on other pages
nearby; nor Monthly/Weekly. The latter would need cancellation
conditions; an event normally held on the last Saturday of the month is
likely to need to be altered for December 2004.

However, if you are looking ahead for only a limited period, it is easy
enough to insert events covering that period.

No, the Mac simply has tools that make calendar creation and publication
simple. The iCalendar format is an open standard, and there is at least
a PHP module that will display them.

Ah ! oui ! pas mal !
Et où se procure t'on le pacage iCal ??
(ça fonctionne sur sa machine, à la maison, sur système 8.6 ?)

bien que 80 ko à re-charger au moindre clic soit un peu cher !

Fine !
Where to find iCal ? is it a freeWare ? working on system 8.6 ?
Bemol : quite expensive to download 80ko on each click !
