TRC 9.1: New Calendar

I’ve started on my next project: Overhauling the TRC Calendar.

The old Calendar is a homegrown PHP / MySQL script that I wrote well over a decade ago, and she’s starting to show her age.  It doesn’t have great functionality, the forms to submit & edit are clunky, and the back-end would give you a migraine.  Since moving TRC to WordPress, I’ve wanted to convert it over to use a proper WordPress Plugin.

So far, so good!  The new plugin I’m using is working out GREAT! Here are some pics to compare the old vs. the new with my current progress.

There is still quite a lot of work to do, including purging and vetting events, and figuring out how to do user submission.
