Video Tutorials about iCagenda v2 by Giusebos :
You can use this version 3 of iCagenda, both on joomla 2.5 and joomla 3.2/3.3.
It is a cross-platform version.
Note for users of Joomla 3 and 'Install from Web' : direct installation from your website is available!
The customization of template is very clearly and you can customize and create templates very quickly with basic knowledge HTML and CSS.
I am using PRO version and I can recommend to buy.
Thank you for your work!
Thank you for your Review, and your pro version purchase!
The Theme Packs Manager is to allow a designer to create a totally unique graphic theme, and be able to install it directly in the component.
The system is easy to use, you just install it and prepare it the way you want. There are many great features that I need in order to set up my calendar events.
The documentation is good and like i said the support is beyond everything I saw so far. :)
It is on my list for all my joomla sites
JUST GO FOR IT!!!!
Thank you for your review!
I'm really happy too, as the developper, to have all this feedback on the forum, and I'm lucky to have great tutorial videos made by Guisebos!
Thanks for your vote!
This listing on the JED is (as it is the rules) only about iCagenda component, and its free module iC calendar which is included in the extension.
The module iC Event List is an addon included only in Pro version, so i didn't write about it on the JED. (note: free and pro version of the component have the same features)
You can see this module in a front-end rendering on the demo website. I will add soon a description of its few options on download page of JoomliC website.
But, you're right, i can maybe add an access to test its back-end on demo website! I will see later for this possibility.
1. There is NO front end editing option. This kills the deal. Events can only be added through the back end. I have many people who need to add their own events and am not going to give them access to the entire back end of the website to do it, nor can I reasonably take the time to add (and remove - see #2 below) everyone's events for them.
2. When a sequence of events is over the listing remains visible until you go into the back end and manually remove it. This may occur with individual events as well, haven't tried that but still, events should be removed automatically when they are over. This makes a lot of extra work and organization that has to be kept track of for the administrator.
These are both fixable issues but have seen not even a whisper of them being forthcoming so will be moving on. Otherwise a reasonable component.
Thanks for your Review!
Before you drop for another extension, as you appreciate many features of iCagenda, I'll give you some answers (which can also be found on the forum) :
1: Submit event in Front-end is currently in developpement, i'm working on it this month! But, with ACL permissions, you can already grant access to iCagenda only, and not all the back-end! (some users of iCagenda are already doing so today, and it's working well. For people who want to know about the configuration, they can post on the forum, the community can help!)
2: You may have not view the option for that! You have it in the params of the menu item, to display only future and today events! ;-)
Note: There are some really good tutorial videos done by Giusebos, from Joomla Italy, and you can learn how to use, configure, and much more about iCagenda!
There's a wishlist/roadmap on the forum, and everything is added here : http://www.joomlic.com/forum/icagenda-announcements/330
I'm sure you will enjoy iCagenda, and don't hesitate to ask question, or request help on the forum! ;-)
Thank you very much for the review!
And .. to tell a little story, at first I develop a simple version of iCagenda for my clients, groups of music... ;-)
It would be good to place under the calendar widget: "Color - event."
Thanks for your work. Get rich - buy carefully.
Thank you for your useful review!
Yours suggestions are in the roadmap of iCagenda developpement ;-)
Thank you very much for your detailed review, I am trying my best to make the component as useful as possible.
About AcyMailing, when iCagenda v3 will be ready, i will work on the plugin.
So, if you have suggestions, wishes and ideas about integration of iCagenda in Acymailing, you're welcome! ;-)
Thank you very much for the review.
And thanks to all the translators, who are doing a great job ! And soon, some new languages! (as you can see on icagenda transifex)
If you are looking for the same don’t look any further and try iCagenda.
The video tutorial is great! You’re up and running within 5 min. without any complicated settings or preparations. It’s all straight forward and easy understandable. Sure I also face some problems (mainly in relation to my template) but the support was excellent for the free version and I was really surprised by the speed of the replies after I changed to the PRO version. Awesome!
I think it’s worth to spend some time to iCagenda if you’re looking for a nice event agenda.
Thanks for the nice job guys and don’t add too many bells and whistles. Keep it simple and easy accessible!
Great that this extension helped you out, it is always nice to get this kind of feedback. Thank you!
I'm sorry, but you've added a review to the wrong extension, but not about iCagenda.
I have no message nor topic in the support forum with no answer, and check this everyday with help of other volunteers moderators.
I see no posts with no answer on the forum of iCagenda : http://www.joomlic.com/en/forum/icagenda
Thank you kindly update your review!
Thank you for the review! I am glad to have helped you. ;-)
I may buy the PRO version later on, which is also cheap at £34 but for now the non-commercial one is fantastic.
The component needs some minor upgrades that require coding but the overall project is VERY CLEVER and INTUITIVE.
Functionality: Easy to install for 2.5 with swift precision and styling for the Control Panel. Everything has been well thought out for the layout, buttons and Agendas.
The Newsletter is to me an added bonus. I was going to use another newsletter component and bolt it onto the website for customers, but this does that as well - Just awesome.
I especially like that you do not have to provide a full registration on your website for the non commercial one and downloading it is very simple.
You have added a video in the Joomla admin section on how to use it. This is a fantastic addition. It is a shame that other developers are not as future proof as yourself.
Great job. Simply the best component for Event Management.
Thanks for your Review!
Just an info about Pro Version : in GBP, it is currently £8.87 (plus tax/VAT) for one year (not £34 !).
So... cheaper! ;-)
This Pro Version has exactly the same features of the free version, but in Pro, you have a support by email, and the possibility of removal of the signature.
Hope you the best experience with iCagenda, and sure you will appreciate the new features to come!
I add it on my roadmap!
Very soon, i will begin a documentation for users to create their personal Theme Pack.
This will allow you to edit the css and html of your own files, independantly of iCagenda updates!
The calendar was easy to set up for recurring events, easy to make small design modifications through the backend, and has never thrown a conflict. My site members appreciate the clean look and the quick loading.
I am looking forward to future enhancements, such as multiple instances of the module, a way to see different events for different groups on the same day without drilling down into the date (although it's nice to click on the date and have a list of events pop up very quickly), and more customizing abilities in the admin area.
I've donated to the author and am looking forward to future releases.
In 2013, i'm planning a lot of new features and options, and i will add them regularly.
And i always keep in a list, ideas from users ;-)
Thank you for your support in this project !
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!
