    Hey guys,
    I'm looking to set up a website for my self and a few guys and i'm looking for a web designer who would be able to make it. Please just PM me on these forums if you're interested

    Basically what I'm looking for is:
    An online calendar where the view is set on monthly formats (exactly like the view of ical when it's set to view by month). I want an easy way for myself to enter in information in there.
    The information i enter, will be hyperlinked to another page where i'd provide further details
    Also all the information that has been entered, once in the past, should enable a star rating (0-5 stars) as well as enable me to blog about it (if you click the link on it, it will go onto my own blogging system)
    Once i blog about a past event, i want users to be able to rate the event and comment about it

    More details will be provided upon request i think this all makes sense. I have drafts i've drawn up..
    How much do u think something like this will cost?
    I just need it to be easy for me to update the information, enter information in the calendar, write the blogs and add pictures to each of my blogs etc
    and i want the other guys that come on to be able to easily enter into my calendar.

    You need a web developer not a web designer for this. Sounds to me like you want someone to write a fairly full-on web app and that sort of thing doesn't come cheap. Or perhaps I've misunderstood and you've already written the app but just want someone to do the UI for it?

    Check out http://dogwood.andrewclink.com. Look at Dogwood Calendar, and click "more" to see the events.

    I just wrote the Event system that basically handles all that. The events are dynamic (stored in a MySQL database) and user updateable... Sounds kinda like what you're looking for. The code's already written, so PM me if you're interested in discussing some possible options with me. I'll set up a username and password for you to preview the admin section

    Yeah i think i need a web developer...

    Hey mate
    it sort of is what i'm looking for but at the same time it's not.
    the format i want the calendar in is like i have it in the following attachment which is exactly like the format of ical.
    For a future event i want there to be a hyperlink where it provides more information.
    for a past event, i want there to be a 5 start rating system like this one:
    which everyone can vote for and once voted will show the average.
    It will also be linked to a blog where i blogged about the event. I'll have my own star rating on the blog seperate from the users one.
    i hope this makes sense

    if you use a open sorce content mangement system you could proably do this by yourself.

    I would do it normally, but I;m not taking on any new clients at this point in time, if it was not needed immeditly however I might have some time in a few months, but I believe that you want somthing sooner.

    Look at CMSMS, Drupal and Joomla build on the mambo platform, and use Media Temple [mt] as a host, it works well with CMS's.

    again I cant to work right now, but if you try to do this yourself or need any advise I would be more than happy to advise free of charge

    Make sure you through in lots of AJAX for good measure.

    It sucks when you have to reload the page just to go to the next month on the calendar.

    I ended up taking janitors advice... I'm using Joomla and it's good for everything i need. And if i need anything extra i can download modules and stuff. Brilliant!

    Much appreciated guys.
