Using Calendars


The calendar is a feature-rich resource to help track site modifications as well as organize, and collaborate with individuals & groups around the world using the user-friendly architecture of Tiki. Tiki's Calendar feature makes use of practically all of the features you might find in other web calendars, while also fully integrating the other features of TikiWiki such as categories, wikis, blogs, galleries, and many others!

Depending on how the Tiki administrator has configured the Tiki site you're using, you may be able to do some or all of the following:

  • View a list of all available calendars on your Tiki site
  • View a calendar
  • Create a calendar
  • Add a new event to a calendar
  • Edit or delete a calendar event
  • Print a calendar

Which could be produced with something similar to:

{SPLIT()}{MODULE(module=calendar_new, viewmode=month, notitle=y) /} 
--- 
{MODULE(module=calendar_new, viewmode=month, month_delta=+1, notitle=y) /}
---
{MODULE(module=calendar_new, viewmode=month, month_delta=+2, notitle=y) /}
{SPLIT}
