Hi yaya,

If I'm not mistaken, the add event functionality you're looking for is simply a node type called "event" that gives anonymous users permission to post the content type. That is to say it is the default calendar functionality. You should be able to find instructions here:

http://drupal.org/node/262062

to create a calendar event type. Then just give permission to anonymous users (if you want the public to post events) to post node type "event."

if you need more help after working through the above documentation, let me know,

Thank you Ross,

I changed permission setting as you recommended.. I manually created "add an event" under calendar menu. now the public can post events.. but I was wondering if is there any sophisticate way for publishing an event (to avoid spam).. Can Administrator make the final decision by getting update information(& review the contents) through email?

below link is yaya's current setting. http://yayanetwork.org/node/add/event

Hi yaya,

Yes, you have a couple of options here. One would be to install the workflow module http://drupal.org/project/workflow . This would allow you to set up content review in whatever way you want. This is likely the most robust mechanism. If you combine it with the notifications module http://drupal.org/project/notifications , you can set notifications to be sent to you when certain things on the site occur.

Another, simpler way to accomplish this would be to set the default publishing option for the event to "unpublished," (you'd do this at http://yayanetwork.org/admin/structure/types/manage/THE-EVENT-CONTENT-TYPE ) that way no anonymous user could ever publish content that wasn't approved. You could still combine this with notifications and have what you want.

see if one of these options work,
