I started a yahoogroup to discuss developing a Wordpress application that would 
do all these things with plugins. It isn't very active (at all) but its there 
and has 15 members who use Wordpress. After an initial flurry of messages, it 
dies down. To subscribe send a blank message to:

coho-wordpress-subscribe [at]

We have a public and a private website set up on Wordpress. We use an 
application a member wrote using CGI scripts, etc., for guest room reservations 
and CalendarWiz for other CH reservations and Administrative reminders. 

We have a lot of  Yahoogroups and set up a new one for new working groups or 

What I would love to have is a calendar integrated with Wordpress so we could 
put all our calendars in one place on our members only website. I just haven't 
had the time to learn the ones out there-- and they are ugly as sin, probably 

I would also like to have an online meals calendar. Sean Davy has done a nice 
application but I would like on based on open source software for which there 
is online documentation and discussion forums.

I invite anyone to join the coho-wordpress group, introduce your issues, and 
restart the conversation.
