So don't believe what they say!
This user (he is not my customers) sent me an email sometime ago ask me to add a feature into Event Booking : Display list of registrants on event detail page. At that time, I thought it is useful, so I promised him I will implement it in future releases !
However, after spending more time to think about it, I found that this feature is NOT NECESSARY because It is AVAILABLE in the extension already but it is implemented in a different way: Customers can click on View List link which is displayed next to number of registrants to view registrants of an event.
I said sorry to Wilbert and explained the reasons I don't implement he asked into the extension. Please aslo that I didn't ask him to pay me his money to get this feature into the extension. I suggested him :
- Try to find a different extension to see whether it meets he need.
- If he wants to use my extension and want to have the feature implemented in the way he wants, we are available to customize it for him with a small fee (40$).
Wilbert refused my suggestions. He gave me this bad rating and review just because I don't implement a feature which is ONLY NEEDED BY HIMSELF. He also threatened to ask other Joomla users he knows to move away from using our products. This is an un-acceptable behavior and I believe "unfair people" which he mentioned here is himself, not us !
To all other customers: You can always suggest the features you want in our Features wishlish forum. I always listen to your suggestions, implement the features which I think is useful can can be used by other customers. That's one of the reason make my extension better from time to time. However, when you want a specific feature which only needed by yourself, not useful for my other customers, I am available to customize it for you to meet your need perfectly. But you will need to pay for our work in this case (usually small fee). That's fair for both of us !
I found one bug. It was fixed overnight. I do not want to exaggerate, but our cycle club paid over 200 times more for an IT-consultant to provide us with an event booking function for a cycle race we were arranging. This extension will do what we wanted, AND do everything else we need when it comes to keeping track of events (booking winter spinning passes, training rounds, meetings).
It is a dream to use. Everything is very intuitive. If you know what you want to do, when you want to do it, where you want to do it ... then just fill in the blanks.
I cannot recommend this too highly.
This is my first Joomla site. I've integrated our web-site with phpBB3 via JFusion. I'm learning Joomla, I'm not expert, but I am one happy trooper as a user.
You can't lose. Get it!
This extension does everything that is requested, and even though I ran into a small problem, it was sorted out and even fixed directly on my site. I was hesitant because I have paid for extensions before that have not lived up to everything as advertised, but this has done more than live up to it's name. It's made me a willing convert to commercial applications in Joomla!
Thank you so much Than! You, are a star!
Advance features like, early bird discount, group registration and group discount, integration with 3rd party components like community builder are some of the awesome features this component provides. The component is very easy to use and have tips just in front of the feature which makes using the component very easy. You do not have to read 100s of pages of document to get started. All in all excellent component with good user interface.
The support is super quick and is an Excellent product. Well done to the developers!
Did more than what is mentioned by Author. A great and must have app for event management of any kind... And to make things out of this world it is backed by phenominal support..................... Awesome is the only word that you can for response time and fix... Awesome job and thanks from the core of my heart!!!!
YOU ROCK !!!! AWESOME AWESOME ALL THE WAY !!!
The developer (Tuan) has been a busy bee all this time adding new options and refining everything on this extension. I've witnessed this extension grow from a small new addition for events handling for your joomla installation to a full featured power horse controlling almost all of the things I need.
I use it for a seminar type of event handling and it does its job flawlessly.
A couple of customizations that I needed were met with immediate and friendly manner from the developer.
Job well done Tuan! 5 stars awarded! Highly recommended!
Installation is as easy as any Joomla component. You need to know what you want to use to complete the detailed configuration, because almost everything is adjustable, starting with the various messages to customers, admin etc..
Thanks to the "translation" fields it is easy to replace the standard text with one more suited to particular type of event.
The only aspect that could be improved is the documentation to eventually customise some tables.
I have tried a few Booking extension I find this one the most versatile and usable.
I highly recommend this extension to all of you!
I had a small issue and posted a support ticket to ask for advice. Tuan was prompt in responding and he even fixed the problem for me.
This is definitely worth a 5 start review. Well done JoomDonation!!!
