Post your question to a community of 470,833 developers. It's quick & easy.

Can anyone suggest a script?

Need a script to allow users to post their social events, and having a
devil of a time finding one. Some criteria:

• Users can post their own event, without requiring any kind of
registration. Would be nice if they could be assigned a code that
would allow them to access their post and make changes or delete it
entirely.

• Posts must be okayed by an administrator prior to appearing in the
database.

• Data fields must be changeable, to include such things as Event
Title, Start Date, End Date, Time, Contact Person, Contact Telephone,
Category, etcetera.

• For convenience in using the submitted data in other medium, a
flat-file backend is the option of choice. Otherwise, export to CSV
is a preferred.

• Events must be searchable by keyword, category, date, etcetera.

• I do not need a calendar displayed with this--just for the events to
be displayed as a series of search results.

• The search interface and results MUST be able to be included in a
PHP page without disturbing the layout or requiring awkward use of
templates.

The closest thing I've found is something called @1 Event Publisher,
which is a CGI script that my host won't approve (they're fine with
anything PHP). Plus, it's too inflexible for the things I need to do.
But that a look at the demos on
http://www.upoint.info/cgi/demo/eventpub/index.shtml and you'll get an
excellent idea of what kind of search/results I'm looking for. I like
what it does, but I need to be able to change the fields to better
reflect the data being submitted.

I'm not up to speed on PHP enough yet to program a script myself,
sadly. If anyone can offer any ideas for a PHP database script that
accomplishes the same thing and can be customized, I'd certainly be
willing to look into it.

Any suggestions are most appreciated.

sounds like you need a web programmer, not a script. If you're interested
in ASP.NET, I recommend DotNetNuke, or if you want to stick with PHP, you
might look at WordPress

Sounds like you need to edit a guestbook script

Hi Joannie,

Would this do for an administrator page?

(code: http://www.phppeanuts.org/download/exampleA2.zip, requires
phpPeanuts, copy to its main directory after install, execute the sql
file on mySQL, for example using phpMyAdmin. Instruction on installing
