I'm looking for a web based calendar application that allows users to log in and create events.  Here are some of the requirements:
-Open source (free) or inexpensive
-Allows for user and group management
-Allows for event categories and subcategories
-Allows for easy standards based skinning
-Allows for events to be printed or exported to PDF
-Uses PHP and/or mysql

Suggestions?

I don't know if this will help much but Google has a sharable calandar scheme.  I am not sure if it will meet all the needs and I don't know about php.

No I need something I can customize, hence the need for it to be skinnable.

These may help. the latter one is not free, but with the requirements above I'm not too sure if there are any free ones.

Hope this helps though.

Neither one of those solutions offers the kind of user level access I'm looking for.  I need users to be able to easily register and post events.  easyphpcalendar allows up to 21 user accounts, but I have to create and manage them and that won't be enough accounts, anyway.

what your after isnt going to come without a price on top.  any freeware application on the web wont suit your needs as it wount have A, B or C feature that you require.

I suggest developing one yourself or pay somebody to develop one.

i would develop one but we are not allowed to take on real paid job offers on EE - its against the rules.

I ended up bidding it out on elance.com because, as you said, none of the free software met all of our needs.  A few came close though, including:
Webcalendar - http://www.k5n.us/webcalendar.php?topic=About
Vcalendar - http://www.ultraapps.com/app_overview.php?app_id=19

Thanks for the advice.

Please PAQ this question.
