Hi,

I need to create a calendar that can be edited by admins of the site, but not viewers.

Pretty doesn't matter, just a way of showing upcoming events in a calendar, shown to everyone, editable only by admins.

I'm not really interested in how it looks for now...

tnx

I use http://arshaw.com/fullcalendar/ and to generate the json https://code.google.com/p/aspjson/.

Full calendar is a little complex at first, but you will appreciate it later.  I have tried other options and I like this the best.  The hard part for some asp dev's is the fact you are not manually creating the calendar. Instead, you are just generating the json via your asp on another page.  

From there, you will use jquery for click events to make a pop up and edit or add to the calendar.  

Otherwise, an easy route is to simply list out events by date for a given range.  Sort by date,time with new headings for new dates.  Then use jquery ui datepicker up calendar to add/edit dates. http://jqueryui.com/datepicker/

I understand why to choose pure asp/vb.  While fullcalendar does have a learning curve (and I struggled with it at first myself) in the end, I am glad I stuck with it and have used it many times.  Because it is in jquery, it does not matter what server side language you use.

Good luck!
