The customer service is awesome(courteous, prompt, honest)! I had several items that needed to be addressed as I configured the component. Every support ticket was responded to within 24 hours (or earlier), and all of my issues were resolved.
Easy to install the component and modules. Easy to configure.
Experience level: 5+ years building Joomla sites
My own challenge was in adjusting the CSS templates so that it matches my underlying site template. I made three support requests and all were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Our site went live earlier this week and the users all admire the new Event and Calendar capabilities. I think the component has pleanty of headroom and more advanced features that we can also start using in the future. No regrets :)
As a 'newbie' it is always daunting when I make a purchase with no experience or knowledge of website building. I need not have worried, from the minute I contacted Andrei with my concerns about configuration he spent the next few days, via the admin panel, going on my site and configuring my component, module and all relevant plug ins to the exact way I wanted it without any complaints and the patience of a saint!
I found the team swift, diligent and professional. Without their outstanding support a 'newbie' like me, could never have achieved the final, beyond brilliant outcome, in a matter of hours.
As a 'newbie' it is important to have this unexpected but incredible level of support, well worth the money and highly recommended.
A big 'Thank You' to Andrei and the team, I wish you all the success your excellent products & customer services deserve.
As others have stated, the template designs are really poor. That being said, they are better then most - because the others are horrendous. That is probably why the RSJoomla team hasn't improved them, which is sad.
No ability to create tags to sort events, they allow multiple categories, but won't let you sort of them once you do. They calendar won't display the color codes correctly if you use multiple categories.
No ability to use smarty code to fix the horrible php coding they use.
No integration with sh404SEF or any other SEF. End up with terrible URL's
The potential here is tantalizing, but at the end of the day, I wouldn't recommend it.
The review talks about RSEvents!, not about RSEvents!Pro, but unfortunately we cannot remove it due to JED regulations.
I submitted a minor bug report at 10pm and received a polite note that the component was fixed and updated in the morning.
The only reason I'm not giving a 5 star review, is that the component is a bit confusing to learn. Its not quite as polished as RSForms, their marquee product.
Part of the reason it is hard to learn is simply that there are too many options... fine grain control over an app, always comes at the expense of simplicity.
Nonetheless, I would strongly recommend this product. The support alone is worth the asking price.
Added to that, an easy to customise template that can carry a lot of info when required.
Haven't tried the event management features, but nice to know they are their when required.
Brilliant support as well. Very prompt and knowledgeable.
All up, very professional and well worth it. Needless to say, recommended!!
When I found the latest version of RSEvents, I decided to give it a try and it turns out it is one of the best decisions I could have made. There are far more features than I have need for at present, but it gives me more options and choices to add in the future. It is also very adaptable and flexible.
Best of all has been the great support I have been getting from RSJoomla. By far, the best support with prompt and helpful responses. A couple of times they went above the call in helping me make a couple of customizations I wanted. this alone has been worth the cost.
Overall, I am very happy it RSEvents!
You should ask the support before writing a review.
All you have to do is to click on Export to calendar and you'll get a .ics file that IS compatible with google calendar..
Where I found it disappointing was in the front end layout. It uses layout-breaking tables for front end submission, with a huge number of poorly organised fields that to a non-technical end user looks very daunting.
Thankfully, it supports template overrides, so I was able to customise both the front end display and front end submission forms to use CSS based layouts and generally look a lot more user-friendly, without core hacks, in no time at all. It makes me wonder why this wasn't included in the first place?
For me this wasn't a huge issue, however without any technical knowledge I would have found the component useless because of these simple layout issues.
On a free component, this would be fine. On one that costs ~£40, I don't think it quite cuts it when there are other components in this price bracket that offer a much better experience on the whole.
Overall, still a good component, but let down by the simple stuff.
I would recommend their products to anyone. They exceeded my expectations in both products and service.
Very simple to set up, customize and user friendly!
Keep them coming!
Well worth the money.
