Ok here is the problem. I run an events website and currently i use the default geeklog calendar for the events... which is fine. The only thing i hate about it is how the events show up on the main page in list form. I would rather have a small calendar like the one that the plugin MyCal provides. So you would say, "well then just use MyCal instead". Well i would, but the way the plugin works kinda sucks. I dont want to have the calendar produce anything but events, and mycal just uses a search string to bring up anyting posted on the day you click. Idealy i would like to have a mini calendar connected to the geeklog calendar that would only have a link in days where there was a posted event. So the question is would i be better off trying to modify the geeklog calendar or the mycal plugin? Has anyone done something similar?

Do you mean something like the Site Calendar Block ?
Dutch Geeklog sites about camping/hiking:
www.kampeerzaken.nl | www.campersite.nl | www.caravans.nl | www.caravans.net

no because Mycal IS the Site Calendar Block. Download it and you see what I mean.

Matt Palermo over at Sweetphp.com makes a great calendar called TotalCalendar which I helped him do a Geeklog integration with.
Check out my demo here.

It includes rss for a block type list or subscriptions via Mozilla calendar, sunbird, or ical, and I've made a minical block also if you are interested.

Matt is about to release v2.4 which will includes full support for geeklog(although I think he added it to the current v2.3)

Hope this helps Smile

Yeah that is the general idea of what i need, but im not sure i want to pay $35 for it and then not have it work right with my layout or geeklog installation. I checked out your demo and it is nice, but i didnt see a mini cal anywhere, except the previous and next month calendars if that is what you are talking about. I see that you HAVE fully integrated it on your site, but I would still have to script a mini cal to put in a block for the front page. Also i checked out that Jinzora thing you have pretty cool, would there be a way to do the same thing but for mp3's that were on your server?

I already have that. I'm on a windows server, and for some unknown reason I get a cannot redeclare class pear error intermittently, so I disabled it. This is not an issue on linux though. I submitted the code to Matt for inclusion in v.2.4
As for the $35, I think it is worth it to support small developers. Look to Blaine's premium plugins for example. All worth the money.
My favorite feature is the subscription feature. If I update my calendar, my friends all get updated too. Sounds perfect for your events site.

Also i checked out that Jinzora thing you have pretty cool, would there be a way to do the same thing but for mp3's that were on your server?

That is how it works Smile
