Ohanah is a powerful combination of both calendar and event+registration management for Joomla in one awesome extension.
Top 5 reasons I love Ohanah:
1) Easily create events, customize event registration forms plus customizable registration details can be automatically sent by email.
2)Events look great displayed on a calendar or as a sortable list of events (or both). Both adjust to your template (no separate template to buy).
3)Event details page uses 'module injection' ..modules are inserted into the desired position of your template with the corresponding data related to that event (ie, map, venue location, event pictures, etc).
4) Sortable. The filter module is awesome! We have a ton of events. Our users can sort through our calendar+list of events by seven different variables. Without it, our list of events/calendar would be totally cluttered like a Google calendar.
5) Flexible ...tons of options to select from in the admin area. Repeating events. PayPal, MailChimp integration. Works out of the box. Really clean admin area. After JCE and Widgetkit, Ohanah is the best coded Joomla extension I've seen.
Ohanah is the perfect example why Joomla rocks: better extensibility. We've pretty much replaced Eventbrite and 30boxes with Ohanah ...lets see you do that Wordpress or Drupal.
I was impressed how good it looked without doing any sort of modifications at all!
I had a question concerning a possible future add on and the support was quick and helpful. That is huge.
I highly suggest you give it a try for yourself. Great features and solid support.
And I thought it looked quite good out of the box on the font-end as well.
Romano, the support person that responded to me, was very quick in responding to the issues that I did have and he was able to help me figure out how to get around a couple obstacles that came up for me.
It also a good sign that the support team is continuing to develop the app and they seem to be listening to their users about what the next step is.
I definitely recommend this and if you do consider it, take the time to try out the demos on the backend and front end so that you can be sure it's what you want.
I bought this component for a event website. The component itself is easy to use and the first look is great. BUT, if you try to change something like resize the picture of the events in the list view (which is standard 100px x 100px) you will find no easy way! Yes, friendly support is available, but this really basic feature is not part of their code at the moment (Version 2.1.8). Also there is no possibility to have different kind of tickets, like tickets for adults, kids. I was looking at their page more then 10 times and spend a lot of time before I bought it, but it wasn`t enough. Their refund policy is strange: if they have a bug and cannot fix it you will get your money back, but not in my case, because changing of a picture in the list view is not part of the code.
Sorry guys but this is FOR ME kind of "buy a alpha version" and hope that the developer will bring the basic features at "one day".
For other users: ask, ask and ask them for every feature you need before you buy Ohanah.
All the best for you!
our refund policy is very clear:
we are sorry if you misread that.
We are also very sorry if you haven't checked or misread again something on the product page, where you had a full features list, detailed features tour, faq section, contact form and three FULL demos to try out and know everything in advance.
your installation was bugs free, unfortunately you were asking (and blackmailing) us without patience with extra features requests and custom development works that we don't do, as clearly stated on our faqs too.
think you haven't also checked carefully some important jed rules http://cl.ly/image/3R2q2S13043S
or you wouldn't have come here manifesting your disappointment by this way.
you could have contacted us on the support platform in a better way, what i still encourage you to do, we will be more then happy to find a solution with you.
The way Ohanah handles module placement takes some getting used to but solves some of the problems caused by having the extra level of dynamic function.
We did have a slight problem with users having problems logging in if their name contained an unusual text element, However the support team solved this straight away.
The only aspect I'd still like are the ability for fronted adding of a recurring event,hopefully this will appear in the future.
The only software i know that supports frontend recurring events out of the box is superevents.
Also no solution after hugh talks with the support team by more than a handfull of ohana customers.
So in the end i wasted time for waiting for the feature, talking to the staff and money for the supscription during waiting.
recurring events are there but not via the frontend (and there is nowhere on our public site that says other ways).
Thank you for your feedback.
Support is fairly quick and responsive, too.
The tool itself is mostly bug-free and has solid user event creation functionality, calendar displays, and overall theming. Everything looks nice and flows readily; it's very 'clean' in its design.
jEvents was preferable for 1.5, but for 2.5 and modern joomla sites, I see no reason not to use Ohanah.
Definitely a valued tool for managing events.
Also, some doubts appear and the support was very effective and quick.
I have Ohanah in many sites for some clients and they are really happy with the simplicity and powerfull of this tool.
A detail that do them really happy is the ability of locate in a map the site of the event and, off course, the integration with some payment systems.
Thanks Ohanah ;)
Speaking of support i must say this is excellent, very quick replies and always with a good solution or answer.
I absolutely recommend this product.
