I don't want a PDA and I don't want to use the features of my phone to store appointments or my schedule.
I practically live on the web, as I'm sure many of you do. I want a web-based calendar that I have full control of. I want to be able to add and delete my own events and easily know which dates I've set events for. I'm a big PHP fan, so I want to create my own.
I bet you've never really thought about just how important an events calendar is to you. If you don't have an events calendar and you're always trying to remember appointments and your busy business schedule then I'm here to save the day!
Yesterday I decided that instead of buying a Compaq iPAQ, I would sit down and create my own web based events calendar. In this article I'm going to run you step-by-step through the code that I used to create my calendar.
We will be using PHP and a flat file to store the events for the calendar. I know that I could've used a database to store the events, but I wanted to make the calendar as quick and easy to setup as possible. I also wanted as many people to be able to use it as possible.
[Note] In this article I will assume that you're using PHP version 4.1 on a Linux web server. If you're not then only minor modifications may be required, however everything should work perfectly 90% of the time. [End Note]
