I'm not sure if you have addressed this issue , but i have two groups comming to my website. one is the casual visitor the i want to view my calender but not be able to add events. the other is of orginizations to be able to post events. I tried to make two calenders indivually with the settings i prefer on each but both calenders update to whatever the current settings are. Is there somthing i can do to make this work? i am willing to give a log in to approved orginizations manually if needed.
thanks a million

Let me thing about this.... One problem is, you would need some way to identify who was in which group. This would mean everyone would have to log in - which seems kind of cumbersome (and we dont offer permissioning specifically for the "add event" feature at this level)

Here's a solution:
You have 2 calendars merged together. Say Calendar A merges in events from Calendar B.

On your website, you publish Calendar A (which include's B's events - optionally color-coded if you want).

In the footer of calendar A, you can have a link to Calendar B (or just share it with trusted people). Something like

<a href="http://www.localendar.com/public/calendarb">Add Events (approved people only)</a>

Now here's the cool part. For Calendar B, you have previously restricted it to certain members who will have to sign in when they click that link. And on Calendar B you have set it so that visitors can add events (under Options->General)

So your regular visitors get the ease-of-use of hitting the calendar page and seeing all the content without having to sign in. And if they try and add events themselves, they wont be authorized. Meanwhile, the "lucky" people will be able to click the link, sign in, and add events.

Under this plan, Calendar A would need a Premium Basic subscription (for the merging) and Calendar B would need a Premium Webmaster subscription to let visitors add events and to be password-protected.

You can learn more about calendar merging on our wiki: http://www.localendar.com/docs/display/lc/Merging+Calendars
and password-protection: http://www.localendar.com/docs/display/lc/Password-protecting+your+localendar

Hope that helps!

thanks for the help . got the log on to work , got the merge to work . but... on my restricted calender when you search and then cancel it returns to a full screen calender not my iframe calender. any ideas? I am able to do some java tricks to hide the merged calender button so that passers by do not add bogus events to the calender. like a fixed floating panel, but the cancel button needs to return to my iframe page.

again thank you so much your worderful, your fablous, and a tremendous help. is the enough flattery? .... tks,

I'm afraid the trickery we can manage is nearly at an end.. coffee The Search functionality wasnt exactly designed with this kind of flow in mind. The best solution would be to turn the search button off on that calendar under Options->General.
