  1. HI there,

    I am running a website for a Boy Scout Council. I am in the process of setting up hosting for units on our server. I would like to have each unit have its own calendar, but to do this I would have to use the flat file because each calendar would want to use the same table in the database.
    :computer:
    What would be nice is in the program's administration we could define a prefix to your standard table name of about 5 characters. Thus each unit would have its own table in the database.

    What ya think?

    This is easily modifiable by the user, but I do not know if your usage of the calendar falls within the allowable uses (I'm not familliar enough with the licencing agreement). Hence, I will wait for Brian's answer.

    The ability to change the mySQL table name was in Version 5, but removed in Version 6 because of numerous support issues with this.

    However, it can be manually changed in Version 6 by editing the config.inc.php file and modifying the table name variable.
  4. Thanks for the reply. I shall look into it.
