Period events (start and end date) and/or single dates, time, contact information (email, phone, address, place...), registration to events with options, newsletter for registered users...
You can also insert a Google Map, a poster and an attached file.
The description of the event is using your favorite editor (possibilities to add video, media...).
Component manages the sharing on facebook, twitter and all the social networks, using AddThis.
Display of events takes the form of a list, for which you can apply filters (upcoming dates and/or past, category, ordering by dates...) and customize graphic elements (choice of theme, size of the Google map, number events displayed per page, date format in your culture (for languages available in iCagenda), etc ...)
The Theme Manager allows you to create your own theme pack for iCagenda and install it easily via the component.
Two Themes are included in iCagenda : default and ic_rounded.
Other themes are currently in process!
Available in 20 languages :
English, French, Italian, English/USA, Portuguese/brasil, Dutch, German, Spanish, Russian, Norwegian, Czech, Slovak, Latvian, Greek, Polish, Finnish, Chinese (trad.), Portuguese, Croatian, Swedish.
Video Tutorials about iCagenda v2 by Giusebos :
PS: I find it astonishing that after more than one year with J!2.5 there's still no fully working and easy-to-use free events-component. I've never had any problems to find one for former Joomla-versions. What has happened?
Just award you that some features you say that are missing, are already in iCagenda !!! (duplicate event, dates format, multiple-day-events, possibilities of customising...)
Maybe you didn't have a look at the joomlic forum, with topics about the new features coming in version 1.3 (coming very very soon, in RC released first)
If you have trouble using iCagenda, please, post a new topic on joomlic help forum! Thanks!
iCagenda is young (3 months), FREE!, and in the weeks, and months to come, a lot of new features!
Thanks for your review. As you have mentioned, tutorial videos by Gisuebos are really well done!
The support is even greater !
I had a problem with the translation of the months in the listview of the oomponent but the support solved this problem right away.
Thanks for that !!!
Thanks for your review, and be an active member of the forum! ;-)
Thank you for your review!
Sorry, I'm late to answer you, and since your review, many features have been added, and others are in the roadmap!
Thank you very much for your review !
Yes, you're right, not so much reviews, but a great feedback on my forum! I'm a happy developper!
Support is also great, developers looks nice and kind, they answer soon and enjoy their job. Good luck to you guys
Thank you for your review, and as you mentionned, i'm enjoy to do all this work ! ;-)
Thank you so much for the review, it is really appreciated.
Seamless integration... The only missing part would be the front-end creation of event, but apparently this is for next release... I can't wait!
Yes, submit an event in front-end is planned for release 1.3 (with registration, newsletter, and other features : http://www.joomlic.com/en/forum/icagenda-announcements/127-next-major-release-in-developpement-1-3
Thanks for your patience ! :-)
think this product is not yet stable enough for the mass. there could be potential but a lot of work has to be done... but for the moment i would rather go on other products.
You site is really down ?
I'm not sure about that... maybe an other problem. Why you don't have contact me before posting a review ?
(link contact in the bottom of the joomic website)
Event registration would be fine but it's already under construction.
I would also love to have the component translated to german. For this task I contacted the team to support them in this task.
Thanks for your help!
The German package is on process, translation allready done.
New language pachages in a few days : Portugues-Brasil, Spanish, German, Dutch
First, it's solid. Good code and no flaws. Second, it's highly customizable. With only a few lines of CSS the look-and-feel can be altered to your liking. And third, it's maintainable.
The only remarkable thing (in my opinion) is the storage of serialized vars in the database event table. I don't see why the developer has that built in, because it holds a date, which also is present in a date field of the same record.
Other than that, it's a splendid calendar solution, that will stick with me for many years to come!
Thank you very much for your review, and for your contribution to this project ! ;-)
This component is very promising, capable of competing with many extensions paying, still young in its development, but quite functional.
The support is very responsive.
Thanks to the developers.
Thanks for your review!
And a new release coming soon, with bugs fixed, and new features ;-)
Thank you too for joining the translation team!
4 new languages packages on progress ;-)
