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.
After all, my Web site is running smooth with jEvents configured for 20 cities and 20 event categories and around 50+ events per day (and adding!).
I can only recommend jEvents to anyone in need for a good configurable calender.
The extension is extremely stable, very powerful and has many great features that make it function with any event you may need it for. Great Job and thanks for all your help the past year!
Support is available for non-club members but answers appear to be mostly plugs to subscribe to the club. After years of developing free add-ons/extensions for several open-source forum products, I guess I personally just hate to see someone trying to make a buck off the labor of those who created the core open-source product. A bit like carpet-baggers moving in after gold has been discovered.
Using the latest version for Joomla 2.5 & up... I noticed many irregularities and missing items in the admin interface that I would expect to be functioning in a commercial product. Minor things, but still annoying.
They may call this a free product... but be aware that it is "cripple ware" that likely will not meet your needs... which you will not discover until investing hours on trying to figure it out.
JEvents is a free and open source addon for Joomla that offers:
* complex repeat patterns and exception handling,
* many menu types for displaying your events,
* mini-calendar module,
* latest events module (with a large number of documented config options),
* 4 built themes,
* full Joomla MVC which makes it possible to customise the output
I'm not sure many people would describe these features as basic and it meets the needs of the vast majority of sites without any addons and maybe only some basic CSS tweaks to deal with site template specific issues.
We provide fast support in the free access forums.
Its a pity you didn't ask your support question in our support forum as we could have resolved this issue for you.
JEvents enables you to create complex repeat patterns and exceptions to these repeats, you can delete single repeats or all repeats following a specified repeat. You can also change the date, time, description etc. of any single repeat.
I have also needed some customizations that were above my level of expertise and have hired them to make the changes and have always been happy with the results.
This is a must have component that is worthy of a membership. When time to renew you do not create a new membership, just go into your account and hit renew for a discount.
Sorry to hear of your problems - we have several free to access support forums which are clearly marked with the words 'free access' in their titles.
I find its capabilities and flexbility to be great.
In particular for a Joomla user with no programming skills I was very pleased with the level of support the vendor provided and highly recommend becoming a gold/silver member.
The extension was easy to install and navigate, the only thing you need to consider is that if you are locking your htaccess down or running a lot of plugins that you should get JEvent running first and then add other plugins one at a time and retest...
I would highly recommend this extension.
And best of all, the support ist great, if you're a subscriber or not - you get an answer quickly and everybody always tries to help you in a friendly way!
