Ok, I've been working on a travel site for ages in multiple languages, but as the site has grown, I've had to refresh content more often.

So I've outgrown the original inflexible layout of the content calendar, which was created in Excel. It allowed for monthly updates (for non-UK versions of the site) and weekly updates (UK), but now I can be putting stuff up at all different times.

I was thinking about migrating to a database but wouldn't have the foggiest idea where to start with this. Ideally I want a dashboard that will show the live content across all 13 sites, and then give me the facility to see archive content easily.

At this point I wanted to throw open the debate to SitePointsters - how do you set up and maintain a content calendar for your site?
