View Full Version : Calendar design ideas?

Aug 4, 2009, 08:45 PM
I searched first before posting, and didn't see an answer to my situation.
I don't want to use Google Cal. Only I need to be able to edit it...


I have basic knowledge of Dreamweaver and designed a simple website.
I don't know code or use style sheets.

I'd like to somehow put a standard looking Calendar on a web page for my bookings/gigs.

Right now I'm using a table that just sucks...it's hard to read at a glance.
It's located on a private page for my band to access...it has personal days off on it, etc...

Anyone have a Calendar design that i can plug into a table on DW and easily edit text on? I'd love something like iCal.

I am the only person who will edit it, no other users...I just want it to look like a Calendar and be on my webspace, as opposed to Google Cal.

I have the same question.

My requirements:
The ability to create and maintain monthly calendars in the standard Sunday-to-Saturday format.
A standalone application, a Dreameaver plug-in, or a web-based calendar editor.
The results should be HTML for my own web page or web-based content I can display within my web page.
The ability to set each event's text color.
The ability to set each day's background color.
The ability to make the event text an anchor (link to any URL).
Anybody have a recommendation for me or jdzialak?

Google has a calendar service. You can sync to iCal I think.

You can publish iCal calendar on a private server (I think you need OSX server?)

Blogging software would have plugins for that, for example:
Event Calendar

Neither Google calendars nor iCal seems to support the attributes (colors and links) I'm looking for. You can set text color in iCal using multiple calendar layers, but I want a color attribute instead.

I know that beggars can't be choosers but I haven't found anything close to my requirements so far.

The more choices, the better. The post above led me to these, which I have not studied in depth:
jMonthCalendar (http://www.bytecyclist.com/projects/jmonthcalendar/)

FullCalendar (http://arshaw.com/fullcalendar/)

Another super Events calendar is Web2Cal


It is customizable. It fits more than regular calendaring needs. We used it in hospital application. It is little more pricier, but if your organization can shell some money, you should go for it.

It is easier to use and lesser javascript to write
