JEvents 3.1 is now available for general download - this is a Joomla 2.5-3.0 native component that takes JEvents to the next level. The old version of JEvents (2.2.9) for Joomla 1.5 is still available to download too.
Note that version 3.1.24 onwards removes the blue information icon linking to the JEvents website.
Lots of customization options, including its own CSS! That's impressive. A disappointing selection of attribute values though... odd non-neutral colors and a calendar that doesn't stretch to width.
Category management is sort of confusing, since it uses its own categories a user can get confused with jooma categories.
This would be a great component if it allowed frontend content manipulation.
Overall this calendar extension is better than all the others I've seen.
The look out of the box is terrible. The color scheme needs improvement.
The calendar is also missing many useful features. one feature it is missing is the ability to repeat events based on "x' number of days. ie. Repeat an event evey 3 days, 10, days or what ever variable you select. This would give the repeat events more flexibility.
Also some features like ical would be nice. Great work.
I got the colors looking better by editing the css file but had trouble positioning the main month calendar and getting it to expand 100% across the page.
If it looked at least decent I would have given it 5 stars.
If you're good at messing with css and other files that affect positioning, you should try it out.
I held a website of a dog club and frequently organize functions for our club members. JEvents allows members to see all our events and Attend Event make it possible for members to join our activities by submitting all customised information I need. This combination is much better than Akoreservation. Highly recommended.
With a little work, you can customize the color schemes of the modules and components to match your website, and you'll have a great calendar!
I will always watch this canlendar work.
1. When add an event which happenes weekly or monthly, I can not define the end time. What is available is the end date.
2. Is it possible to add a new feature that the registered user can join the event which has upper limit number of attendees?
- Option to turn off WYSIWYG and have a plain text version.
- Ability to save venues for future selection.
- A specific entry for venue websites under extra.
- Option to turn off images.
- Ability to end an event at Midnight, without carrying the event over to the next day. An override that plugs in the word 'Midnight' perhaps?
- An available list view of the events from the current day forward. With the option of hiding events that repeat.
- Ability to copy an existing event, and then edit it as a completely separate event. A real time saver.
- An option to flag an event as featured, so that featured events get preferential listing under latest events.
good calendars are hard to find - this one is great
Great work with the search bot - makes it easier 4 sure.
1 gripe - doesn't work well with standard SEF enabled - Nor with open-SEF - redirects crash. Unable to run both Events and SEF + be able to edit from the front end successfully.
I will be looking out for your updates - Keep up the grand work!
There are no known problems with the Joomla builtin SEF - try out the demo site.
If you are having other problems please report them using the tracker (link above) and we'll see if we can help..
Also my client was annoyed that the events in the admin area were not sorted by date, so I fixed that as well.
But generally this is a high quality product. Nice displays. Esay to use.
But still. I haven't found any better component, so I live with the limts.
One other thing I'd like to see is the ability to make the frontpage calendar module have it's own ministylesheet. I'm using the NightMoves template by PixelBunniP and the background for the modules is by default transparent, resulting in an unreadable calendar module. Looking at the Events Style, I see no option to edit this, and doing a flat "all modules have this background" looks odd.
All in all, I highly suggest this module to anyone looking for a simple and easy to use calendar for their group.
I love the easy style sheet editing too.
This is my new calendar of choice!!
But, two bugs keep me from choosing it right now for production:
1. Repeated events don't display on calendar, only the first instance.
2. In the backend, when editing an event, all events revert to "daily" repeating, with no other option selectable, so you have to use front end to edit events.
Fix these bugs and I'm on this calendar!!
I also notice that when opening an event in the backend, the dates get switched to "daily" and the option to select anything but "daily" is greyed out.
