I am working on band sites so I want to find a good script that would list dates and locations of shows on the main page but if you clicked on the actual show page youd get a more detailed table of cost and times and other bands playing.

I want to do this as an actual code because the band wants to input the data themselves. However I don't know the best way to do thsi and calendar scripts that I have found arent what I want..

This could turn out into a fairly complex script involving server-side scripting and databases.

If you look into PHP/MySql it would be do-able.
There is no "instant" script for this type of question, sometimes you just have to do it the hard way:

PHP Reference:

or

MySql Reference/Downloads:
http://www.mysql.com/

Note that if a MySql database is configured on your web host, it is there regardless of what programs you use to view/edit it.
If you don't want to download the 50mb pack (recommended) you can use phpmyadmin, generally with this url, or given by your hosting service:
http://phpmyadmin.[your-host-name]/

Good luck.

Thanks! I see how to create the insert form but I was wondering if someone could tell me how to create a password on the form so that whoever is inserting data has to know the correct password in order to post.
