About Calendar Modules
Event Module Overview
The Event module can be used to manage and display events in many different ways. The Default view also has links to bring up other standard 'calendar' type views with links on those views to bring up the other views. You'll also notice the calendar changes months without reloading the entire page.
Through the use of module aggregation, you can have a single calendar and view it in other formats on different pages, such as a headline view on the home page or sidebar.
Additionally, the 'iCalendar' feature/link allows you to 'publish' the calendar events to another calendar program. You may also display color-coded external calendars published on other sites such as Google calendar or any iCal feed.
You may also configure the calendar to be used to send email reminders of upcoming events by also creating a 'cron' task on your server.
This is a sample event calendar. It uses the new 'lightbox' feature to display events.
