Creating calendars with HTMLCAL Professional edition

If you would like to include various U.S. holidays in your calendars, download the events data file from our Support page.

The dat file(s) should be transfered to your Web server. By default, the file or files should go in the same directory as your calendar files. These are plain text files, so they should be transferred in ASCII mode.

A dat file may already exist for a particular year if you've added any events for that year. To save the entries you have already made, copy and paste the events and holidays from this events file you just into your current one. The dates do not have to be in chronological order.

Creating new calendars for next year (single-calendar version)

From a Web browser, type the URL where the htmlc-nt.exe is stored (htmlcal.cgi for Unix users) plus these extra characters.

If the URL is http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/, then type

http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/htmlc-nt.exe?/y2017+/m1-12+/w  [ENTER]
To create calendars for other years, replace the 2017 with another year.

Unix users, use htmlcal.cgi instead of htmlc-nt.exe.

The Web browser should show the results of the software attempting to make the calendars.

Notes

  • The dat file must have read and write permission.
  • The directory where the calendars are to be created must have both read and write permission. The calendar files themselves must have read and write permission.
  • If you are using the multiple calendar version, please see the documentation that came with your software to create calendars.
