            Needs User-Defined Categories
            WOW! A 3-year-old application that still works perfectly? that's unheard of. This is a solid application which provides my family exactly what we needed....

            ... except ... we are moving from a free web-based calendar which allowed users to define new categories (name, fore/back color) and this was a BIG help, having 3 kids. We could color code everything, then be able to see whose bills were due (based on shade of red), which kid had a play (based on three more color combinations), etc.

            Would it be hard to add user-definable categories?

            Nice work
            I have researched and test drove many calendars and found that this webcal has close to everything I was looking for.

            My concern is with the performance of the app as the data file grows with events. Has anyone noticed any performance issues with a calendar that is heavily populated?

            Thanks for the great work.

            more flexible than anything else out there -- but a HORRIBLE name
            My client needed different group-based levels of access to shared resource calendars, as well as a general-purpose calendaring system.

            I spent many weeks trying different group calendaring systems -- phprojekt, opengroupware, phpgroupware, tutos, mrbs, the *other* webcal -- and could not hammer any of them into exactly meeting my requirements. With webCal, it still wasn't completely easy, but it was doable without re-writing anything. That made me happy.

            One bad thing about it: the name. "WebCal" is the absolutely most generic, easily-confused name one could imagine for this product. Please, please rename it to something more distinct!
