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.
The customer service is also very good.
I highly recommend this extension and you will love it to.
-The system is very user friendly without causing loss of functionality.
-The layouts and functions have the latest techniques integrated. This saved me a lot of time by not having to redo the stylesheets to match my site as I have done with every other component.
-The dynamic modules make, what otherwise would be a tedious task, event posting quick by not having to place maps etc. (it's geocoded) in the description.
-The support team is excellent! I had one or two issues (my fault, of course) and they were resolved within hours.
After having this on three different sites, there is only one thing on my wishlist. I usually have events with varying ticket prices. Unfortunately you can only have one price for a ticket per event. From what I understand, this function is in the works with Ohanah though. In the meantime, I have just added a Paypal button (with dropdown) that suffices for an easy work around.
Really, it makes the work with extensions in general not simple ;)
I started with the Ohanah extension and I just liked the backend. Of course, you have to read a lot about module injections to understand it but after it works great. The backend view is really professional!
I had some trouble to understand how I can change the styles for the frontend like a list and others but finally it works. Thanks a lot to the support from Ohanah! They are very profession and patient ;)!
