I originally bought this over a year ago then kept coming back to it. The functionality and ability to adapt to most templates is really cool. However, it's young and still buggy, like a BMW 1.0 kind of thing. Serious time has gone into this component but it seems a little rushed to market. It's not IE 7 or 8 friendly, it doesn't always play well with RocketTheme templates and CSS fixes are occasionally required. Support is about what one would expect, 24 hour turn-around but closed on weekends and holidays. I'll definitely check back but the delays in deploying this are just too much for me. I'll settle for a less attractive but more dependable alternative for now.

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 reviews on this extension were good and I was impressed with the demo, so I decided to give this a shot. I have been looking for a good event/calendar script for a long while now.

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!

Gorgeous components for events and activities. Large number of features, flexible configuration. Very convenient and user-friendly interface. The thing I like in this component is that it easily fits into virtually any website design!

I used this component on a sporting website so that events can be created and it works brilliantly.

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.

I really like Ohanah, this app is easy to use and to customise. I have only one complaint with it. Make calendar view bit more customizible. But other than that it is perfect.

This extension is fantastic. Unfortunately my client wanted something which the extension does not provide, but the developers were very understanding & agreed to grant me a refund.

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!

I've managed to setup an events system in just a couple of hours. Most of that time was spent copying data from the old system. I had a couple of queries and they got back to me very quickly with clear and detailed answers.

I am using this application in a new way and am extremely pleased with the support so far. I have had a number of questions answered promptly and without a doubt would recommend this as a great tool for anybody running events. I must say there are still features I pine for but that is the case for any app and based on my support experience, i am confident they will prevail in being the best event app in joomla.

Ohanah's the PERFECT calendar+events app. I got tired of the other Joomla events extensions. Most others were unpolished or too 'events-centric'. None of them come near what you can do 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.

I bought this product a little while back only to discover it wasn't ready. weekly and sometimes daily bug-fixes, it wouldn't work with my template/s - support was hit or miss and dint suceed in resolving my issues so several weeks in I abandoned it. However I found my self back at Ohanahs door after discovering I had actually signed a recurring payment within my paypal payment - my fault, however when I drew their attention to the multitude of problems without resolution of any kind and asked for a refund on the second payment I was shown the door. In short it was buggy and didn't work for me even with the limited support (I'm back with eventlist now) limited customisation available even with php and css alterations and pretty poor support. A great supplier website does not mean a great product.
Owner's reply

Dear Holgate.
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.

In one sentence:

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 tried quite a few event components before finding Ohanah. I loved how easy it was to setup and the interface is clean and well designed.

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.

f you're looking for a good event extension for Joomla, you should definitely consider Ohanah. The back end administration is very simple and intuitive and I almost did not have to read the documentation to set things up (although I have some experience in Joomla so that helped).

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.
