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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
Viewing the empty calendar worked fine.
But when it came time to add an event i got jeventsfilter not defined error... and the product is useless....
I tried to get support by registering on the website, but website registration doesnt work either. Plus they are SO worried about spam that you cant contact them via simple web form.
You will see during registration that you have to answer 3 different captchas.
Sorry to hear of your difficulties with registering for the support forum. If you try again and double check your spam folder for your forum confirmation email, I'm sure we would resolve your problem very quickly.
Only thing is that the module for front page seems to create a database error and crashes the page.
As we established in the support forum - your problem arose because your webserver is running a very old version of MySQL (4.0.27 which is >4.5 years old).
I have purchased the Silver subscription to gain the extra features I want, but the core is free and I was able to see if it fitted my requirements before shelling out money. Highly recommended
