Based on version 1.5 by Rob Sutton, the Event Calendar (Figure 8-8) found in http://phpnuke.holbrookau.net is much updated and features many improvements and add- ons. For example, the adminstration area features configuration via a graphical interface, posting of
events can be mode rated and users even have the option of adding comments to any event.

For the installation, it is assumed that the user has some knowledge of MySQL and is comfortable with running simple queries before starting. It is highly recommended that you have phpMyAdmin (see
Section 3.4) installed on your server - it will simplify installation and help with error tracking.
