I had some compatibility problems with my template and contacted the developers who, although I hadn't paid anything, helped resolve all my problems.
I then bought the Pro version and am delighted with the extra features - especially the ability to totally customise the module(s) to my client's brand colours.
I highly recommend this product to anyone seeking a light-weight yet full function event calendar. The admin is so simple to use that even non-tech clients are able to keep their events up to date.
And finally - a big thank-you Web-Dorado for their fast response and high level of support.
The product is well developed. Very quick displaying all events of a day by mouseover and customisable as necessary (color, size, categories).
We used another (very good, but very complex) calendar before. This has not been used by our members. I think with the quick display via bubbles all users get a fast view on all upcomming events. No more need to wait until the calendar has loaded. Quick and fast.
And if you need more information you can click on that selected event an receive a very detailed description.
Very well done! (7 stars of 5 possible!)
When I suggested that the events displayed didn't have an AM/PM time selection, I was surprised to see in implemented in the next upgrade, eventhough the developer indicated that I could have it done for a fee.
Multiple calendars are supported out of the box. You can have one calendar for example teachers and one for students, another for janitors. etc.
There's one minor thing that it doesn't have which is standard with most modules. When saving events it has Save and Save & Close, but it doesn't have a Save & New. That causes an extra step when inputting multiple events to a calendar.
All in all, this is a great calendar.
