JEvents Popular ComponentModulePlugin

This well known and loved Events Calendar for Joomla. JEvents consists of a Joomla component and a number of modules and plugins to manage and display your events on your website. JEvents is translated into 37 languages (with more tranlsations added regularily) so its probably available in your language.

* One-off Events and complex repeating patterns of events can be created and viewed in an attractive calendar and a variety of list formats
* Multiple design layouts possible
* Fully compatible with Joomla MVC framework
* Ical imports/exports
* Repeat exception handling
* Events can be placed in multiple categories and calendar views can be customised to show all or some of these categories
* Layout editing tool to perfect the presentation on your site - you can even customise the event editing page.
* Layouts can be event category specific so your sports events can be laid out differently to your music events etc.
* Optional checking for overlapping events globally or on a category specific basis

* Mini-calendar module (jevents_cal) which gives a quick overview of events which can be placed on any page
* Latest events module (jevents_latest) which gives a highly configurable summary of upcoming, recently created or popular events
* Events legend (jevents_legend) - displayed alongside the component gives you a summary of event categories and an easy way to limit the events shown to specific categories
* Filter module allows you to filter/search the events being displayed using a variety of criteria

* A search plugin that enables the global Joomla search to return results from the events calendar

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.

I used it in 1.5., 1.6. and 1.7. and had no problems at all. Solid work.
To fit it to your needs you do not have a stylish graphical backend interface and you have to use code expressions - but every code used and every step is explained in tooltips beside. Design needs a fresh breeze.

I have worked with both the Commercial and Non-Commercial version of this component and have had to hack every single aspect of it to do what I need it to do.

This Component will be extremely frustrating to use unless you are a programmer with a thorough knowledge of the inner workings of Joomla components.

Terrible forums and useless support. Replies to your questions will be cryptic, highly technical and in programmer jargon. Not user friendly at all.

This is one of the best or i think the only best stop by for people who want event component for joomla. It requires no or very small technical knowledge and even the one first time with joomla can very easily set it up.

Beautifully organized and designed. I used this for my personal site.

Level of difficulty is nothing... you can set it up without even reading any manual.

I am advanced level user and manager or joomla.

I have used Jevents on my Joomla sites for event management, registration and reminders. The extension is very powerful and I would strongly recommend becoming a Gold Member to access the RSVP Pro plug in that enables members to register to attend and be reminded of your events.

The support from Geraint and gwesystems is second to none. I have received assistance and even custom functionality to meet my needs. This is a fantastic Joomla! extension and I highly recommend it for your calendar and event needs

This extension together with additional modules and plugins almost can do anything you would expect from a calendar / events extension.

It is very easy to set up and use, but I think you need to have at least some tech background (css, html, js, php) to use it to its fullest potential.

If you decide to buy one of the support packages, you definitely get the best service around! Geraint is on top of every questions in the forums and just solved my last problem this Sunday, within 24 hours.

1. Is it true that Jevents 1.5.5g does not work with J1.6.6+? Based on personal experience, I kept getting errors with installation on J1.6.6 until I tried version 2 which worked.

Work with my website. If you have any problem, you are gonna receive an answer very quickly.


Anyways, first review for this extension.

What can be said about this component. Nothing is perfect but every time a programmer finds a flaw, Geraint is there to correct it. In addition, if you need help to change a few source code, Geraint will be there to assist you.

For the price of this component, I wonder how he manages to eat:)

Christians have Jesus, programmers have Geraint!

Just had to take a minute out of a busy day to remark on the amazing support offered by Geraint. I'm working on my first JEvents install and it's for a large client with very specific wants & needs. I've been firing off the support tickets, and each time without fail I have received a response within less than one day. It has definitely exceeded my expectations. I'm also thrilled with the component itself, which offers more options and flexibility than other Joomla event management tools I've used.

I have looked everywhere on the site, but there is no place to contact/interact before buying membership packages. This is the last resort.

I am planning to use Jevents and the addons offered in Gold membership package for an upcoming project. The site is based on Joomla 1.7, and therefore, I need to use Jevents v.2. To that end, I have the following questions:

1. Is it true that Jevents 1.5.5g does not work with J1.6.6+? Based on personal experience, I kept getting errors with installation on J1.6.6 until I tried version 2 which worked.
2. when do you expect the stable version of 2 to be released?
3. Specifically which of the addons currently work with Version 2?

The support is just perfect. I had th pleasure to meet the JEvents teams personally and I can't be more happy about JEvents.

JEvents itself gives you a powerful Events component right out the box. The best thing about JEvents is that you can customize every single thing.

Another great thing is that JEvents team listen to your requests.

Last but not least, they have documentation :D

Very proud about JEvents and the result.

A perfect system to manage events with all the functions you may need.
It allows you to manage different kinds of events with lots of functions and option that can be used.
Full support for iCal and possibility to repeat events based on times or number of repeat times.
With some other plugins you can have on your site, a minicalendar, an upcoming events module and possibility to personalize the colore/layouts of single events.

A must have for anyone wants to have events and anniversary showed on the site.
I use it for upcoming events and for some type of anniversary on mysite, and was very simple to organize single categories, colors, layouts and othe format to obtain all I need.
Another important thing. The support is really smart, fast and will help you until you have solved your issue.

I have used this program on a website for some time and really like it. I have downloaded 2 for the new website we are building in Joomla 1.7. It looks great and works well except the latest events, it only shows the end time and event title. I cant get it to change. A great program can highly recommend it

This product fits the build in creating an event management system. It is extremely flexible almost to a fault as there are so many ways you can configure the product.

Geriant the developer provides over the top support of this product. He personally visited my website to determine some issues.

The only downside is being so configurable and having so many options, not many of them are documented.

I've been looking for a rock-solid calendar/event component and module package for a pair of client web sites for a month. After reviewing scores of them on the JED -- JEvents fit the bill. Install was a snap and when I was looking to customize one of the modules to fit the needs of a client the development team was responsive, fast and helped deliver results quickly to keep my client happy!

I have used Jevent (free and paid versions) and RSVP Pro on a number of sites.

Setting it all up the first time is pretty straight forward, customising the layouts needs a bit of effort from you to understand exactly how to bring it all together, but still simple.

I ran into some problems with my latest site (partially my fault, as well as coding issues), and this is the first time I needed more direction than I could find in the documentation/forums.

The response from Geraint (Developer) was right on, very quick to respond, and incredibly helpful. The service and product is first class.

If you want a simple event calendar, and/or the potential to grow into a full blown sales/reservation system then Jevents is the way to go.

I don't use to throw flowers to whom doesn't need but I'd like to thank to developers for his help with a problem that arose about a THIRD PARTY plugin, we couldn't solve it finally, but it's assuring to see that level of compromise with their product. Please notice I used free support.

The component itself is fine, powerful and with plenty features, I'd say its ease of use is 4 of 5 stars but support is definitively out of scale, 10 of 5!!!

While the app itself seems to be okay, I had a little trouble getting it up and running due to a CSS conflict. Once that was settled, it was simple to use, however I discovered that in order to get documentation on the product (like their document on creating and editing events) you have to be a subscriber. I look very poorly on a company that gives their product away for free, but then turns around and charges for documentation.

I have been using this extension for quite some time now and i have always been very happy with it. I recently upgraded from the free version to the gold membership to take advantage of some of the impressive premium addons that are available. Not only are the addons well worth it, but the developer is actively supporting his product and even added custom functionality to a particular addon solely at my request and in just a few days. Fantastic! I wish all extension developers were this attentive

I have used JEVENTS and am particularly happy with the ability of front-end users to add and update calendar events.

Geraint Edwards has provided invaluable support with regard to customization and resolving some php peculiarities. All in all, I recommend JEVENTS.

This is a good product. I would recommend it. But it does not stop robots as it should. Even if you set the configuration settings to stop the robots, they still crawl it.

If you go to their site for help, they'll make you purchase a membership before they tell you a fix or work around. This sounds like a scam. Either fix the issue or state the product as commercial.
