hi, i'm looking for a way for site visitors to be able to submit details of events and have them show up on an events page. is there any sort of php application or something that i could use or is it not going to be that simple? thanks for any help.

what are describing basically is a Content Management System. there are many CMS's out there if you simply google (http://www.google.com/search?q=%22content+management+system%22) it.

it would not be too hard to roll your own. you will need a database to store the events, many of which are free. i suggest you look at the following sites

http://www.php.net/mysql
http://www.mysql.com

they both have detailed examples of how to insert, update and extract info from a database.
