I'll gladly adjust this review if the component developers fix these issues, but sadly I suspect they won't have any time to work on the component, because they are busy providing support.
As far as their support goes, expect 3-8 hours to get a one line, unhelpful response. They wasted quite a bit of my time stringing me along when they could have just written a complete answer to my issue in the first response. Not particularly polite, slow responses without a lot of depth. Waste of my time and money.
P.S. this is the first negative review I've ever written, and my library contains over 300 Joomla extensions.
I'll be streight to the topic:
- php.ini adjustments are not needed, there are no work around needed and in joomla 1.6.3 and 1.6.4 it works.
- we do have time to work on the component and that's the thing we love doing the mos, and facts prove it: http://app.ohanah.com/release-notes > 8 releases in 8 weeks ;-)
- We offer immediate refunding policy so if you think ohanah is not for you, don't need to waste your money/time, just ask for a refund and we will do it within a day.
As soon as I found the Ohanah Event Calendar I knew this was the one! I was particularly impressed that they took the time to configure their product to match up with several popular Joomla templates. They had a version that matched the template I am using which made it a breeze to merge it into my website.
I had a few problems configuring the event calendar to work exactly right but Nick on the support staff was responsive and very helpful with all of my issues.
There are a few things that this event calendar does not yet do however the personel on the support staff are open to suggestions and are working on adding more features and functionality to this extension.
In my opinion, the features it already has make it far superior to other event calendars for Joomla 1.6 that I have researched. Good Job!
I purchased the component and had a few problems with the install, but Flavio and Romano stepped me through those *minor* problems with ease and aplomb.
They are new, but growing. I've received 3 updates since my purchase a week ago.
Folks, ohanah is hot... the next big thing for Joomla, right up there with JomSocial, OSE & RocketTheme. I'd give it 6 stars if I could. :)
What really impressed me is the incredible fast support. I found a minor bug in the administration tool, which did not really matter, but these guys at beyounic replied within 30 minutes in the middle of the night (2 a.m.) and solved the issue within a working day. I never experienced a better support.
Occasionally I had few small questions but their support system and team was amazingly quick and helpful.
I got this when they just released it about a month ago, and is such a delight to see that every week they release regularly a new improved version that I just receive in my email inbox ready to be installed, awesome job guys. I wish all the extensions’ developers out there follow the way this guys work: agile, quick and fast release. If you keep rolling things out like that, you'll probably get Eventbrite knocking on your door soon ;)
There is no frontend submission yet nor ticketing -payment capability, but looking from their roadmap it won’t take much until this will be covered.
This extension is based on Nooku framework, and from looking around seems to me that this is one of the first extensions adopting this technology, so thanks Nooku and thank Beyounic to bring this new breed of people, mind, product, code and style to work into Joomla world!
In their homepage the first paragraph says "Easy to use" and there is an image which makes you think that there is a front-end module to add events but there is not!
Also the creation of subcategories OR the option to assign an event to a more than one category is very importat.
Otherwise the component is ok.
Hello kyriacoullis, frontend submission is in the work and should be rolled out in the upcoming releases, so stay tuned;-) Based on your nice feedback we just updated the description as it was not our intention to be tricky, thanks for that and hope it's more clear now.
For subcategory and the possibility to add events to more then a category we have marked that down. Thanks for the nice input as we are always looking at ways to improve the app.
Definatly gonna be an extension i always have on board and will always poot forward to friends.
Best thing about Ohanah though....IT WORKS!!!!!
And it's such a joy to use too! Not only is beautiful on the front-end but the back-end is clean, fast and well thought out. Totally worth the price of admission (& then some).
If Ohanah is representative of what Nooku can do, then all I can say is with quality apps like this, the outlook for Joomla is very bright indeed.
Looking for Event management in Joomla? Get on board and get a sneak peak at the future of Joomla apps.
They have fast, helpful support which made dealing with whatever difficulties I did run into a lot easier.
Overall, couldn't recommend a component or company better than these guys! I look forward to using Ohanah a lot in the future!
I am very much looking forward to future releases too; upcoming new featues look very promising. Keep it up Beyounic team!
Maps of the event venue? Check!
Event registration? Got it, and more!
Event list? Sure thing!
Multiple category? Yupp!
Easy to configure and skin? Yes!
Even got mailchimp integration!
Since it uses the Nooku framework, if your server is running suhosin, you may need to make adjustments to your php.ini. (I did, but it's really simple)
Your database driver will be changed to MySQLi. (which is actually the recommended driver to use for MySQL server 4.1.3 and newer, so not really sure if it's a minus)
It loads JQuery. (again, not really a minus)
A little problem I faced,
I got a fatal error when first trying to create an event. This is due to the extension requiring the TinyMCE plugin to be enabled (which I didn't).
I contacted support and the problem was fixed in less than an hour. Thankee!
Sum it all up,
Ohanah is a new and promising extension with a great future. I really recommend this rising star.
Even before buying the extension I received superb support and -since I was a beta tester- I was encouraged to first try the beta before buying.
So far I really don't see any cons. It was depends on how much experience you have at coding. But for those who do not need to perform high levels of customizations this extension fits perfectly out-of-the-box. It has several ways to present the information and it's ridiculous how easy it is to use!
This extension is developed with website builders and final users in mind.
I have quite a lot of experience using Joomla! and EventList for displaying events, which is also a good component, but this is superior. It's just so easy to customize!
Of course there will people who need some features that are not implemented quite yet, but you must keep in mind that (at the time I'm writing this) the extension is just in v.1.0 and it's already very good.
Looking forward to see what this extension will become in future versions! Developers listen their customers, that I could see during the beta period. That is and will be key for the success of this extension.
And btw, it is Joomla! 1.5 and 1.6 compatible out-of-the-box and in one installation package.
