I know there is currently a very good calendar mod out there, but it wasn't setup the way I wanted. So I made my own calendar mod. This mod adds a Date field to a selected forum. When users create a new post they will see a date field under the subject heading. They can then choose a date and select whether to add it to the calendar or not. This date option will ONLY APPEAR for new posts in that forum. The user can then go back and edit it if he/she chooses. The calendar portion of this prints out the subject heading for the event and creates a link back to the event post.
I have also created a front page mod for this(upcomingEvents.php), which looks at todays date and grabs whatever number of event days you want(ie. I currently have it printing out 5 event days).
Now, I post this mod with some reservation. I do not have the desire to support this mod. It does exactly what I want it to do, so I won't be "enhancing" it. I mostly post this for those who can use it and those who just need a starting point and will update it and modify the code as they please for their own site. I'll try and keep watch on this topic in case you have problems, but I don't expect you will AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Enjoy!
PS. Make sure when you cut and paste the code that it doesn't create any line breaks in the middle of the code. It shouldn't but be aware of that if you run into problems.
