I am in need of some plugins for Jojo, and as it is I really don't have the time to embark on building them due to too many projects, plus I am still relatively new to Jojo so would take a bit more learning on my part. I need them sooner than later as well.

I will pay a reasonable price for having these built to my specs, but don't want them to be 'mine' but open for the Jojo community.

1. Sermons Manager plugin.
I have an existing Sermon Manager written for my own CMS(which I am phasing out and switching to Jojo). You can see it below to get an idea of what I need.

2. Calendar plugin.
A way of creating and editing events to be displayed on a front end 'calendar style' or 'list style' calendar.

I can give more details to anyone interested. Feel free to email me: caleb@lynchpindesign.com

Thanks

for the sermon manager:
i'm guessing something like a modified version of articles?
probably only needs an extra field or two thrown in for a video link and mp3 link and an adjusted template to display them.

you could do that with your site theme files (which overwrite or extend anything in plugins) on top of the standard articles plugin

not sure about the podcast link tho

there's a basic event listing plugin already - but it doesn't do calendar display

I guess you're right on the articles. I just looked through my existing Sermons Manager editor and all the needed fields are in the Article manager. I use a seperate media server so I will just need to add a couple fields for audio and video links, then include them in the template.

Where is the event listing plugin? I can't seem to find any plugin that it could be. That would probably work fine for what I need.

ah yes - sorry! the event list plugin was so basic it wasn't committed - i've thrown together the install files and so on for it and loaded it up at
http://pluginsvn.jojocms.org/jojo_event/trunk/
it needs some love.
could do with an image field, proper prefixing, search, tags, next previous....
but it should work

Thanks...I will give it a shot and see if I can make some improvements on it. It's a good starting point anyway
