Yesterday I got asked if it was possible to extend a pmwiki site
so that the users could book times and record the time they have
been doing stuff (and do a automatic summary). Sure I said ...
This wiki is used by a small association, it's mostly used to
record data (text) about the work being done and general
information (some photos). They now what to extend it to do the following
+ Reserve time. There should be time slots available where
different members could reserve time, once one member has
reserved a time only that member should be allowed to edit/delete
+ Record time worked. Each member should be allowed to add info
about when they have been doing stuff, this info should be
presented together with a sum of all the time worked. Each member
should only be allowed to edit their own data.
This info should be presented on a page (or two, one for each)
so that it becomes easy to see who has reserved what time, and
to see how much different members have been working. Each member
already have an individual user.
Now we come to my "problem": I haven't done any "developing"
with regard to pmwiki and my knowledge of PHP is, ehhh, close to
non-existent. So this is the chance for me to get to know pmwiki
a bit better. As I see it there are two ways of doing this:
+ write some custom code to handle all the stuff
+ use some existing recipe that can handle something like this
I would prefer the second solution (it would probably be faster
to develop and have less errors) but I'm willing to do the first.
So I would like to ask for some advice if there is some existing
add-on that would handle this and for some general advise of how
I should attack this.
jem (and yes, I do have a lot of
from software development,
just not PHP)
