I run a small online newsletter for a local Performing Arts community. I need a simple script to handle event listings which will be submitted by my visitors. The new submissions should be sent to an admin page where I can approve them, or edit, change, delete, modify any of the listings already in the database and edit add and delete categories for the listings as well as descriptions for the advertising optins in the form.
The submission form should include:
2)Title (which upon output is CAPITALISED)
6)Start Date (from dropdown)
7)End Date (from dropdown)
8)Start Time (from dropdown)
11)Category (from dropdown)
12)Advertising options (with radio buttons to select different options)
The outputed event listing should look like this:
Start Date - End Date at Start Time
Within each category, I need the events sorted into two subcategories. These should be a Current category, which lists events by date (oldest to newest)that have a start date equal to "todays" date or older. And an Upcoming category, which lists events with a future start date (oldest to newest)and, in addition, events that have ended should be auto deleted from the system.
I want to be able to offer different advertising services which can be selected from the submission form via radio buttons. The admin page should allow me to alter the form descriptions for these options. Then I can email interested parties myself.
My site is using WordPress right now. This could be made as a wordpress plugin or a stand-alone script. I am interested in the cheapest option that can get the job done. Email me if you have questions.
