About Showlister

Showlister is…

A really simple content management system (CMS) framework for bands, public speakers, performers, entertainers, or anyone else who needs to maintain a performance calendar online.

Easy to Use

If you are interested in posting your important dates online, Showlister makes it simple. Light and fast, SL is a great way to keep your dates fresh without the hassle and confusion of directly modifying a static document.

Showlister allows you to log in to a password-protected page where you can enter, edit or delete dates on the fly. With this simple HTML form interface, edits are instantaneous. All that's required to display your schedule is a small snippet of PHP code, placed where you'd like it to appear.

Easy Implementation

Lots of web sites use Showlister. Why? Simplicity. Showlister is easy enough for the average user to implement, and developers with tight deadlines and little time to build a custom calendar system find SL's small footprint and modularity appealing. Some users simply don't want to overload their web presence with a large, complex CMS when they need to accomplish a simple task.

Framework

We like to consider Showlister a CMS framework. This distinction is important; we include sample output pages which are designed to be vanilla–easy to customize to your needs–but otherwise, the way you display your shows is completely up to you.

Advantages

  • Shows page listing is always fresh.
  • Adding, editing, and deleting shows requires no technical skill.
  • Multiple-band support.
  • It's free and open source, so you can hack it to fit your needs.
    In fact, we encourage you to do so!

Requirements

  • A web server with PHP and MySQL
  • Two database tables

Links

Bugs

  • .04b introduced bugs in two files in the admin directory: index.php and add_shows.php. These files are fixed in .05b. If you installed .04b, you can either upgrade to .05b or, at a minimum, replace these two admin files with the fixed ones in the .05b release
  • A missing call to the methods file in the sample pages for version .03b can cause an "undefined function" error. If you are using .03b, grab these samples and use them instead.
