[Delete this Thread]

Hello,

I have recently embedded a calendar into my message board:
http://www.websitetoolbox.com/tool/post/mastiffmessageboard/vpost?id=2018137
for my members to use.

Members are able to add an event, but there is no option for them to delete or edit the event (in case they make a mistake or spelling error). At this time they have to contact me and I have to sign into my Localandar account to remove their event. Is there any way around this so they can delete/edit their own events?

Thank you.

Currently there is not - but we're open to suggestions smile

Adding an event to your calendar (if you choose to enable this feature) does not require visitors to create an account with localendar.com. Internally, we refer to this as "anonymous event adding". So there is no way to tell which visitor added what. In light of this, we can't let visitors delete/edit events because someone could accidentally (or intentionally) delete everything on your calendar or create mayhem by changing event details.

That is why there is a setting on this feature that keeps events hidden until the calendar owner reviews them for approval.

We've toyed about given people a special code so they can go back and edit an event later, but this has some problems too. First off, would anyone save it? Second, it the calendar owner has approved an event - do we let them change it? Realistically, you can't, so the calendar owner has to approve it again, even for a small change (and during this time, the event is hidden again).

If you have regular contributors to a calendar, consider setting up a merged calendar(s). This way, your contributors can maintain their own calendars events as often as they'd like (on their personal calendars), and they'll be automatically displayed on your main calendar. You already have this feature as part of your Premium Webmaster subscription.
