Zetan -- is that the basic calendar function you're running on your site? Very
cool site, btw! Nicely done!
Yes, dry3210. That's the problem I'm foreseeing. This specific site is a high school alumni/reunion site (http://jmhs-classmates.net
). For the next reunion that's what I figure the problem will be & I sure
don't want to have to do it like you're saying. UGH. TEDIOUS!
Plus, the folks who are the reunion coordinators are NOT really computer literate so anything I can do to help them is a good thing!
For this same site, I've got a joomla site set up (http://jmhs-classmates.org
) but when I installed the bridge (by joomlashack), it "broke" the site. Needless to say, I got rid of the bridge when I uploaded my last backup. Thank goodness I'd backed up right before trying to get the bridge in place!
Seems like the bridge causes a lot of probs. I'm liking the SMF-TP solution much
better thus far for the forum. Just need more mods re event planning or group management sort of things. And/OR maybe I just don't really understand the membergroups enough yet so.. Guess it'll all come with time! LOL And maybe it'll handle more event-planning type things than I realize yet! Like I said... I'm so new to this software that I can't make much of a valid assessment I suppose! LOL
Even on the other site I've got TP installed, (http://myfibrofriends.org
), I can see a use for the calendar & planning. The people there are ... brain-challenged, lots of memory issues. So it ends up with a lot of questions are, where's __so & so__? Course if you search the posts you can find out & inevitably someone remembers. It's a bit of a pain.
But it'd be handy wouldn't it to just be able to refer to a calendar or some sort of package/mod that would help you with planning. I'm thinking calendar only because of the way I use my pda to keep track of things! Wouldn't HAVE to be a calendar I suppose though. Anyway...
Just thinking out loud I guess.
Guess I'm trying to figure out how to integrate these needs into what's existing since there doesn't seem to be anything really specific to these sort of needs. I guess linking posts to the calendar would do the trick for just keeping track of things like who's gone where, etc. wouldn't it!?!
Anyway, I'm just thinking it wouldn't really work so well for things like event-planning because of probs like dry3210 mentions.
