I will add, if your needs aren't complicated or you can easily tweak and hack this yourself, I'd recommend it!
I'll be back in time to see if things have progressed. For now, I'm looking elsewhere.
I'm really hopeful that they'll nail this thing down, it's got great potential.
The script works flawlessly with my Rockettheme template and the module injector feature is an absolute DREAM!
The implementation is not as intuitive as I would have liked, but once you get the gist of how things work it all makes sense and is very simple and user friendly.
This is a very well developed app!
The support received from Bojan was also excellent, very responsive and honest.
If I had one recommendation for going forward it would be the ability to add custom fields to the events.
Communications with the developer were spot on! contacted them via facebook and email and got a reply the same day! (which has never happened with any other developer!)
Hopefully I will get a client that requires this extension and I will be able to purchase again!
For a low cost (few beers ^^) u've got many possibility.
This was the first commercial extension that I have bought and i will never regret it.
The customer support is excellent.
U can find anything u need for an event management and if u need help, support is there for u to help or guide u into hacking fo u're purpose.
I'm very happy with Ohanah...
Ohanah has an awesome calendar that displays events.
It has a great filter module to sort both your events calendar and your events list.
Integrates w/PayPal, MailChimp, Google maps.
No extra templates to buy. Ohanah matches your Joomla template.
We no longer use EventBrite, or Google calendar ..Ohanah's a clean replacement for both. Well worth the cost! ..would love to see Ohanah post to FB automatically.
We are sorry for your disappointment.
Ohanah is not under development, it is stable and 100% working since years. We release every week a new version, with some small bug fixes but also new extra features.
Ohanah automagically adapt to almost every template. Of course it is almost impossible for us to test it with every template available out there. Therefore we do provide support for the most known and respected providers on the market, what was probably not your case.
In any case, our engineers team is here to help you sorting out all kind of technical problems.
All you have to do is to open a ticket on the dedicated support platform and ask.
And in the rare case that we can not help you out.., don't worry, we have then a very friendly refund policy.
So please contact us to find a solution instead of wrongly choosing the JED as the place to manifest such kind of disappointment.
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.
