I build a lot of "community" sites - that is, not web communities, but websites that support specific communities. So I'm hunting around for a good set of decent and free PHP/MySQL scripts to do the sorts of things these communities often demand. Now up? A
. AskMeFi has
, so hat in hand, I come back to the well hoping for more. [More Inside]
For the calendar, I've used phpCommunityCalendar
, which is barebones but functional. For classified ads, after actually paying
for another solution that turned out to really suck, I started using zClassifieds
(looks like the developer's site is gone). Both haven't been updated in over two years. Right now I'm testing ExtCal
, which looks promising but still isn't quite what I'm looking for.
For both, I'm looking for a built-in user login system, good moderation (i.e. ban) capabilities, image support, and, of course, free (or nearly free).
I think the classified ads script space is pretty crowded, so if anyone has any experience with a particular program, I'd love to hear about it. As for a calendar, the setup I like most is the one used by VegasEventsOnline.net
... but theirs cost five figures to license!
