Digital Peak Support Team was great with hints and patches to solve these problems.
Great Joomla! Extension!!!
So, I now set up a Google Calendar for them, ingrate it into their website, give them access to the Google Calendar and away they go. Next think I know all their events are displaying on the website and they are very happy.
Then of course I am happy. Thanks guys.
I have also been very impressed with their support. They keep coming back to me until they are happy that I am satisfied.
I have used the calendar for a football club with several calendars for each team and many users. DPCalendar can also fetch the matches from the natinal competition system for each team and then display it up-to-date beautifully within DPCalendar.
Right now I don't see that any calendar in JED can compete with DPCalendar. They have set a new standard to the calendar category. That will make the competition harder, so now it's up to the competitors to reach the new standard and try to evolve.
The support I received has been awesome!
Initially when I installed the component there was a conflict with another component that wasn't loading jQuery correctly. The DPCalendar developers put in a considerable amount of time and effort to come up with a solution and created a fix so there would be no conflicts with other extensions in the future.
I have been a user of g4j and now dpcalendar for several years now. I must say this component has come a long way. I really appreciate the dedication of the team as well as the willingness to respond to bugs and suggestions. We are all looking forward to v4 of the plugin with google calendar sync. Good luck with your endeavors.
The linking of external calenders is a great asset plus the great look and feel of the calendars and lists. Very happy with my purchase
For my site we wanted to create a calendar showing the dj’s schedule for each day so the visitors to the site can see when their favourite dj is playing. The radio station can also add their own events to another calendar on the site which is dedicated to special broadcasts and charity events.
There were no issues with having 2 calendars on the same site and editing, adding and deleting events is really easy, especially recurring ones. The countdown module allows us to show the visitor who is on next and all this is supported with images. I must admit we have not utilised all the features of this component but for me its been great.
Finally, we have also recommended some additional features. Normally one would hope that these were going to be implemented but their support system actually shows your recommendation has been looked at and moved to a timline for future development so you can track its progress…well done and thanks for the extremely good support.
Don't need to use google calendar or other things... I recommend this calendar; for me, this calendar is the best!
I have been using it in simple form on a single website for 8 months or so, and started to need to use some of the more indepth features for sharing calendars between websites and with mobile devices. I have a small issue, and it was reseloved very quickly, and whilst it was the problem was being sorted out, I was given a workaround.
So to sum up, great software and support that is about as good as it can get.
