I needed a PHP calendar application for a client so did a search today: “open source php calendar”. Now for all the ignorant out there, the open source designator is not because we’re cheap. Today I found a perfect example of why nobody should waste time with a closed source application.
One of my results for my search was the “Easy PHP Calendar“. Please note that the word “Easy” is in the title.
