The module is very intuitive, automatically adjusting itself based on your events and event ranges; simply set the number of events and the time range, and RokMiniEvents will do the rest.
- Sources: Choose between Google Calendar, JomSocial, RSEvents, JEvents, EventList
- Time Range: Select events from a variety of periods
- Time Format: Control the type of date displayed
- Event Controls: Manage the number of events
- Layouts: Various layout parameters
- Animation: Transitions, durations, offsets
- NEW! Responsive Layout
First of all, it is free (does not even insert a backlink)
Second, it has a great design
Third, it synchronizes with google calendar, and this is a function only some paid extensions offer.
Fourth, it is rare. Not many extensions offer this mini calendar layout, with this style. Most extension offer the old and boring monthly/weekly calendar layout.
So, i ignored the bad reviews and installed it in my latest J3.3 without any problem, and it worked just fine.
It's true it needs a bit more work to be done, but this is not a reason to give bad ratings to an extensions that can be developed to a nice and useful tool.
Especially when they offer it for free.
With GCalendar like provider its worst, not refresh, I setup option to No cached and the same.
Works better with JEvents

On the plus side it looks very nice, and like the options you have, if only they worked.
In release notes for the latest version (1.10) a bug is listed that "rokminievents showing wrong time sometimes" so developer is aware of the issue. However, this bug is not fixed yet.
Support is non-existent. I asked for help (with paid subscription) in the forums more than once and received no help.
The relevant developer just tried the link functionality, both internally and externally, and it worked with the RokMiniEvents module. Therefore, we request that you post in the RokMiniEvents Forum to get your problem addressed, as it appears to be a specific, rather than general problem.
However, thats about where it ends. This module is riddled with bugs that relate to the way that it handles event times to the point where it is unusable and useless.
Despite being a Club Member, posts to the author requesting some help have gone unanswered and the lack of involvement from the company in addressing these serious issues would indicate to me that this is a dead and unsupported product, Joomla users are advised not to waste their time in looking at it.
We track all reported bugs, whether from customers or our testing team, via a ticketing system. The issue in question was reported and resolved in August 2011.
However, the issue appeared again in October, and we have been endeavouring to correct the issue. We take issues in our products very seriously, and please subscribe to our Extensions Update feed to be notified when a new version is released, fixing the issues in question: http://www.rockettheme.com/extensions-updates
After typing the Google address, the field gets lost. If you have to change anything, you have to open a new module, hopefully you remember all the settings.
Its an unusual horizontal display; you cannot use it in a different way without changing the code.
At least I wanted to use it for j-events; here the single event does not link to the correct event.
Update last days (this is the original posting "updated to version 1.6 for Joomla! 1.5 and 1.5 for Joomla! 1.7." :)
