Easy configuration, CSS based customization and performance gains through AJAX and advanced caching mechanism are the main targets of this extensions.
The whole suite contains different extensions which are listed here:
* The component is the heart of the GCalendar suite and shows different kinds of calendars in the main part.
* The Upcoming Events module shows the next events of your calendar as a list.
* The GCalendar module shows the google calendar at a module position.
* The Next module shows a countdown timer till the next events starts.
* The search plugin adds the functionality to search for events.
* The next plugin embeds upcoming events into articles.
So feel free to give it a try. Don't hesitate to post in the forum if you have a question or open a new issue if you need a feature!!
How google himself sees his calendar service:
Organize your schedule and share events with friends. With Google's free online calendar, it's easy to keep track of life's important events all in one place.
* Very customisable.
* Displayed events from multiple Google calendars.
* Paid help from the developer was prompt, effective and at a good price.
* You really needed to be above average in technical skills (CSS helped).
* It seemed notoriously difficult to actually get the thing to display your Google calendar.
It was a good extension, though quite complicated. I tried pretty well all the Joomla calendars available, and this one was the best I found.
These days I just embed the calendar widget from Google, and that's all I need.
The ease now to display numerous calendars of events for our association is superb, and GCalendar faithfully displays changes within seconds.
One extremely happy customer here.
Since it requires your gmail login to create/import calendars, you might have problem with authentication on Google's end, but just read the documentation on how to allow this component to connect, and it will work like a charm! :)
Thanks for a great and easy calendar.
I contacted the support to get some help on tweaking a view to suit our website and received a comprehensive answer within 24 hours. In my opinion, this level of support is as valuable as the product itself and much appreciated!
