Calendars

What's the current concensus on good organization calendar tools?
Looking for something to embed into a non-profit's website, that
multiple folks can have edit rights on, and all can read. Would want
to be able to include links, of course.

(Can Google's calendar do this? A quick test makes it appear to
require signing in when browsing the site.)

Thanks!

This calendar has plenty of useful features, but not complicated with
features you probably won't need.

This calendar is great for personal use, business, organzations, schools,
etc...

There are 2 different modes the calendar can run in. Privacy Mode: and
Public mode!

WebCalendar, free, easy, ..some hosts already have it for free and will
install the db for you for free. Can be public for read only, and you can
password with different levels of access.

....and I would install it in a subweb if you're using FP, then just create a
link to it from the main web.

that page 404.

That just screams "trouble!" at me, when I go look at it. PHP?
Database? What's the possible advantage over using something like
Google? (Really not trying to be argumentative. I just don't get it.)

Thanks...

Yah PHP.
I ran it on a linux site for 3 years with no problems...in a subweb.
I had also used Google calendar, but ended up staying with WebCalendar.

The main reason stayed with WC was I had complete control and it was easily
integrated into the design of the existing site.

I'm hoping to hand off maintenance to folks who are scared of HTML.
Would that change the recommend?

no...it's perfect...admin is a web interface that you can also give public
access (I wouldn't, but you could).
once you have it set up and styled for them it's a piece o'cake.
