I have been searching for an Event Lister for a while now. I just wanted something simple and free. All I could find were gig organisers for bands or commercial scripts. That was up until I came across a Basic PHP Events Lister from Mevin.com.
As part of a learning curve I decided to change a few things with the script to customise it further for my friends website.
- First and foremost I changed the layout a little to include an end date and an end time.
- I then changed the format of the dates to enter into a text-field rather than use the drop down boxes.
- This had its problems as I had to change the database to input to a date and time field as it was previously input as separate variables joined together.
- I then somehow had to convert the dates and times to input and display in the correct English format.
- When this was working I changed all of the pages to XHTML and styled them using CSS.
