Events registration is a solid component. The author responded incredibly fast to to an issue I reported on chat. I'm very happy with the entire experience.

I replaced dtregister because it was unstable. The support was slow and frankly kind of annoying.I paid $75 for that component. My customer ( immediately complained of students not being able to buy classes and zero-dollars where they had been set to $295.

I had already reported several bugs to dtregister. Switching between individual and group registration had created a set of $0 priced records (ack!). The discount code is part of registration rather than billing. Support was slow to non-existant, at one point I waited weeks and only got a response when i threatened to ask my credit card company for a refund.

On the other hand, Event Booking was only $25. It worked the first time with no issues except one. That issue was the failure of joomla to default to the "default.php" view on credit card failure. I found the author on Yahoo chat. He found and fixed the problem within an hour.

The code itself has been solid and done what it says it will do.

I would like to see event_date included in all communications to admin and customers. I mostly made the changes to the code myself. So I got a chance to see the code. Unlike the competitor's code mentioned above, the Event Booking code is solid. It follows standard operating code rules. (For instance, the dtregister issue is obviously a problem with data integrity, it's just sloppy). Event Booking code that I read follows solid academic coding conventions.

I highly recommend Event Booking. It's a good value with well written code and exceptionally good support.

This component is well worth the very reasonable price for a lot of reasons. First you get a reliable, feature-rich product which meets your needs. You can hardly get a better one. Tuan works hard to constantly improve it adding more features. Second, the developer is a guy with whom it is a pleasure to do business with. He is always open to suggestions and really helpful when it comes to solving some issues, on which you otherwise would spend a lot of time. He is quick to respond. It is good to know that there is him or his team behind the product, and they will help you when necessary. Highly recommended!

I write to say what excellent support this product is query was answered 12 hours after posting, remarkable given the spread of time zones involved. The problem was a mis configuration I made and because I am under a deadline, the courteous and successful reply from Mr Tuan was most appreciated.

It's about the first time I've used a commercial Joomla! extension - for a customer:

Fazit: The supreme support I've experienced pays off a 100% for the really small price. I'm completely satisfied, beeing aware of the fact Event-Booking is growing according to Joomla's 1.6 development, and the team really tries to cover webmasters needs in a most convenient and flexible way.

Related to other products I've tested .. it's excellent. That's why I gave 5 stars, although I think the extension could be even better. There were some small issues to solve (I bet in future releases this won't be necessary ;-) - but nothing was dropped in Tuan's 24/7 forum support!

I'd just like them to get rid of some constructs here and there, and use CSS elements and properties instead.

This extension is great for what it say it do. Also support is great and quick. I needed a feature that extension doesn´t have by default. I asked about how to do it and support provides me with a new file with changes i needed included! Thanks!

I use EventBooking on a Cycling fund-raising event website in Australia. It is easy to set up and configuration is logically set out and uncomplicated. One small display issue with my site, probably my error, required support and Tuan logged on and fixed it within a couple of hours. Integration with separate third party 'AcyMailing' Newsletter component was a breeze. Thoroughly recommended.

As far as I can tell, Tuan never sleeps. Since purchasing Event Booking I have had two "supposed" issues but after checking the forums and submitting a service ticket I found the problem was only my ignorance. Both times Tuan quickly (and patiently) showed me that the feature I was looking for already existed. Then he showed me how to find and use it. I have been surprised by the speed of the help and the depth of the extension compared to other paid extensions I've since quit using. Event Booking is working just great for me. Go Tuan!

I'm using the version for 1.6 and it's now working very well for my need in accepting paid workshop bookings. I needed support from the developer and he has been very good in helping resolve any issues, particularly those that have been specific to my site.

I'm giving this 5 stars because I forecast that this extension will only get better and better!

Keep up the good work Tuan!

This is a great extension and it works great with our website. The support is pretty quick also. Just think of all the other extensions that don't support J1.6 yet. These guys are on it.

I have used "Event Booking" for free event with paid additional services. I have opened both - individual and group registrations. But group registration has not summarized Custom Fee Field values. Pretty quickly (in 3-4 days) I got solution from developer. This Event Booking solution has some disadvantages more (for example lacking "max number" option in Custom Fee field), but basically this now works as needed. I think, it's a good solution for Event Booking for Joomla 1.6 at the moment.

I used Seminar in conjunction with Simple Caddy, and eventually I hit their limits and spent the money to upgrade to DT Register. It met the need, but it was a pain to configure and support could have been better.

This week, I decided to try Event Booking, and I was amazed. This product is far superior to the other solutions. Yes, I did have some configuration questions, and I found one bug, but I got answers and a fix for the bug within 24 hours.

If you need a product like Event Booking, don't waste your time and money on the others. Get this product now. You will not regret it.

Amazing extension, this what you need for online events registrations. I am using it from last few months with perfect results. Once i got issue with functionality but got it fixed quickly with developer's support. They are too fast specially when you need quick support.

Skilled + Knowledgeable

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Just go for it. :)

The Extension itself is very neat, has some good custom fields and represents excellent value. Packs a punch and will deliver for most sites. However what sets this extension apart is the support offered by the developer who is quick and knowledgeable and certainly deserves credit for an excellent job. Neat Extension and highly recommended. :)

This extension was very well thought out. As stated by others it is very flexible and allowed us to do exactly what we wanted. Integration with Paypal was simple. Even small features such as "test mode" for Paypal existed allowing you to simulate a paid event registration.

The language translation feature is VERY detailed, allowing you to easily change various wording even if staying with English... without having to edit a text file, all within the backend.

The icing on the cake is the support. I did have a few issues which were quickly addressed and resolved.

Keep up the good work!

Firstly would have to say that the support Tuan provides is absolutely outstanding.
Theres a reason why this component is top in its class its does what it says it does plus a whole lot more. Easy to install and config. We had some issues getting the component looking right due to our custom template but Tuan was great in sorting this out for us and everything works and looks great now. This is well worth the price, Well done guys.
