Add Calendar Events as first-class data type
|Reported by:||mikeschinkel||Owned by:|
I am coming across the need to incorporate a calendar of events into sites more and more often. There are many different calendar plugins but they have different features and all of them store calendar events differently.
I'd like to propose a standard "calendar_event" type be added to wp_posts to include start date/time and end date/time in wp_postmeta or added to the wp_posts table itself, whichever is preferred. In addition, functionality to add a calendar event (as there currently is for posts and pages) and a rudimentary events calendar display both with lots of hooks for plugins to enhance.
If we do this then calendar plugins can provide cumulative functionality instead of only providing mutually exclusive functionality.
