I need to know a couple of things with regard to my calendar:

1. Host is running php5 - will this be a problem?

2. I need the calendar to fit within a prescribed area in a web design - essentially it needs to conform to the design - can MyCalendar do this?

Also, does it list events / allow my web design client to login to a backend, etc.?

Thank you,
Dawn

It will run fine on PHP5 with a couple of tweaks (a now-protected variable needs to be renamed).

Everyone's idea of easy integration is different, but MyCalendar was designed to tie in easier than many, if not most, programs out there. There is a flag to turn site-wide includes on or off, and all such templating is pulled into a single file (top and bottom) which in turn routes all sub-page requests. So, any additional customization you want to do in terms of look and feel can all be accomplished in one place.

There is an admin area that allows you to list events without the usual confirmation step of user-submitted events. Is that what you meant?

Cheers,
Dan

Thanks Dan for the response.

I essentially needed to know if events could be added by the client.

Any changes in variables, etc. can those be done by me or do I need to involve the host?

Thanks,

Dawn

Yes, the client can add events if you don't want to be involved in that process.

The changing of the variables is a simple find and replace prior to uploading the files to the server. Won't take you more than a couple seconds.

Cheers,

No, they are not deleted automatically. They can be purged manually, however.

Cheers,

It could be done with some customization. You would need a script to query the database by whatever criteria you are using for expired events, and then a cronjob to automate the script to run daily or as frequently as desired.
