Summary

In this chapter, we have looked at building an event management site for the Aurora Book Club, making use of the Date field for CCK, the Calendar plug-in for Views, and the Flag module for handling attendance. The book club now has a handy calendar for display on the site, as well as being available in iCal format. They also have an easy-to-find list of all the attendees. The site is simple and easy to use, yet fits all of the club's needs quite nicely.
