Introduction

CIFullCalendar is a server-side dynamic web application that is responsive to any layout of a viewing screen. The “Super Saiyan Fusion” power of CIFullCalendar allows users to organize, plan and share events to everyone. Simply, install it to your server and become a member then use the wonderful features by easily manipulating your events by dragging, dropping, resizing, clicking, touching, categorizing, grouping, filtering, linking and importing/exporting.

How can I use this script on my site?

If you already or considering having a site or a web app built on CodeIgniter framework, styled by bootstrap or other responsive theme and storing the data on MySQL, Sqlsrv, Oracle database etc. supported by CI this calendar script can be very useful. For example, if you wish to create an event site, booking site, appointment site, personal scheduling site, or any other site using CI framework the script can be easily plug-in into it. The idea is to display shared events on a calendar on your frontend (visitors page) of your site and control it at the backend (admin page) similarily like any other cms site that can easily edit contents and have it displayed to the public. Otherwise, if time allows, I am available to give support. Contact here
