Ok I am working on an early idea for an events listings site. I could manually add them (I use a variety of mostly WYSIWYG progs - I am not a coder) but wonder if there is a simple appropriate ready made user friendly solution.
Basically I want to able to easily and quickly add entries as and well - at the moment I require to show sonething like this:
Current events: Event title - Date from/to - with hyperlink to more info at an external site. Also to add whenever event is Free.
Events starting Jan 08
Event starting Feb 08
and so on.. --
I would like to be able to customise the look of the page/entries a little but the overall look I want to keeep fairly clean.
Additonal Visitor options eg sorting to show all Free events etc might be useful . I also may want to add a small image for some if not all entries.
Any suggestions. folks ?- There may be a CMS that can do it t but I have no practical experience of any of them as yet.
Thanks I had a glance sometime before , pity their "live" demo has been unavailble for months now.
Frankly, to me, Open source though often free to use , has rarely been user friendly - I've some limited experience but for someone who has never installed or used my SQL etc the layout and install options look quite intimidating.
I do have a small reseller account now with unlimited mysql to experiment with, if I attempt to install I need some time to get my head around this.
Ok following the 184 page (1) pdf manual - I have uploaded the install files to a subdomain www folder and get the expected pre install check screen - Ok apart from: I see under files permissions : "Unwriteable" you need to change the permissions on the file or directory to allow Joomla! to write to it."
