Update: I’d highly recommend this $30 plugin called Events Calendar Pro for your wordpress events calendar needs.
The past few days I’ve been working on a new WordPress plugin. I’m pretty sure it won’t be quite as popular as my WordPress photo gallery plugin (wiki). However, I think it can be helpful and I hope it’s useful. To solidify its usefulness, I need some suggestions from you.
So, I’ve already built the shell to it, I just need some help deciding what it should do or how it should work.
The basics: An event plugin
The basic request, from a friend of a friend, was something which you could just press a button and input the data for the event into a form (kind of like the add-a-link screen, seen below).
The contents are then sent to the editor formatted using the microformats spec for an hCalendar event.
So, the real question is (minus all the technical mumbo jumbo), what would you like it to come out formatted like?
Examples of possibilities:
- inline: “I went to the Chargers Game last night and ….”
- fully formatted:
“What: Chargers Game
Where: Qualcomm Stadium
When: 9/12/2006 8:00pm
Description: Chargers vs Seahawks.”
- some hybrid: I don’t know what this would look like
Suggestions? Comments? Questions? Please, let me know what you think.
