This is a "work page," not a typical information or resource page. It is intended to guide planners, managers, and operators of establish structure for this wiki and for other elements of the Initiative. That being said, thoughts about this page from general users are most welcomed.

Our goal is to have calendar links on the home page. There and three option areas: MediaWiki, Google-like, and custom coded.

MediaWiki Extensions[edit]

The following extensions allow you to display a calendar within a wiki page. (From MediaWiki on May 11, 2018.)

  • Cargo - displays a JavaScript-based calendar, showing events that match any particular query. Events can be color-coded by type. Pages defining events must use a Cargo-tagged infobox template, a process made easier with the use of the Page Forms extension.
    • Does the display allow for calendar format or just a list of Evert pages?
  • MsCalendar - displays a calendar of events, as well as a popup form to let users enter events. All event information is stored in the database, not in wiki pages.
    • As database is used, is a post event record available?


  • SimpleCalendar - displays a monthly calendar, with each day being a link to a wiki page. (No events displayed.)
  • Yet Another Simple Event Calendar - displays a JavaScript-based calendar. All events must be defined with pages in the "Event:" namespace, with the date of the event in their name.
