Functionality

All our calendar-needs on the website are covered. The extension itself is really good.

Ease of use

Easy to use. Does what it says. Nice extension.

Support

Had an issue and it was handled quick and problem solved.

Documentation

Documentation is sufficient and adequate.

I used this to: Overview of yearly activities, to be seen by month and next activities to come. Great value.

Functionality

The extension works well. I am using the dpcalendar free to sync from google calendar

Ease of use

The free version is harder to figure out since a lot of the documentation is for the pay version.

Support
Documentation
I used this to: Google Calendar integration. I have the dpcallendar free version.

Not happy


Posted on 22 February 2015
Functionality

Couldn't get it going!

Ease of use

Duh!

Support

Not very good in the slightest.

Documentation

From what I could find, it was out of date or did not correspond to my version of Joomla.

I used this to: Our schools website. Since the change from Gcalendar this has caused nothing but trouble and has been really hard to get any where with this add on. Gcalendar was so simple to set up but this is a complete pain. Changing to another add on. If it aint broken, don't try to fix it!!

Functionality

GCalendar is now DPCalendar. The only thing we used it for was Google Calendar syncing. That is gone now so it makes it essentially useless.

Ease of use

The new interface is pretty easy to use. There are a handful of minor issues with some items but they are relatively minor.

Support

Tried contacting the developer several times over the last month and a half (on site, and on Facebook). Have yet to receive a response. Sad.

Documentation

Documentation is very good. But seems most like an advertisement encouraging you to upgrade to the paid version.

I used this to: I wanted to use this extension for my site, having used GCalendar happily for several years. However, as I cannot get the free version to work on my website (RocketTheme template), and the developer is non-responsive to my messages, I must go with an alternative. Avoid this ext.
Owner's reply: It's true that we provide support only for active subscribers. But for old GCalendar users we are always here to find a solution to have a successful migration. I feel sad when you hear such negative words from users which have been used our extensions for free for years without any thank you. Especially when the cause is that your mails have been found in the spam folder. We answer every question from our contact form https://joomla.digital-peak.com/question within a day.
To bad we didn't find a solution together and it ended up this way.

Functionality

GCalendar is now DPCalendar. The only thing we used it for was Google Calendar syncing. That is gone now so it makes it essentially useless.

Ease of use

Easy enough to use but missing our core need after the update to DPCalendar from GCalendar rendering it useless to us.

Support

I've not needed to contact support. But it looks like many want Google Calendar syncing back in the free version and that has been ignored.

Documentation

Wasn't too hard to find the answers I was looking for. I quickly found that the new version will no longer fit our needs.

I used this to: GCalendar is now DPCalendar. The only thing we used it for was Google Calendar syncing. That is gone now so it makes it essentially useless for us. We've now had to remove it and are looking for alternatives. How sad.

I have been using the GCalendar Google sync and Upcoming Event calendars for years for a non-profit I volunteer for with no issues. When I tried updating with the free version of DPCalendar found that a)the Google calendar sync is only available with the paid version and b) that when I tried creating a new calendar from scratch with DPCalendar and adding an event, the event wouldn't save. I got a message from the app that it *did* save the event but it doesn't show up on the calendar or the Event manager. I tried posting to their Calendar View page about my problem but have been ignored. I can't recommend to the board of the non-profit to purchase an extension if I can't even get the free version to work. I will be using a different calendar program that offers the functionality we need and is eager to provide support.


I have been a user of GCalendar for years and never experienced any particular issue. I have recently discovered that Google will showdown the old APIs on nov 2014 so an update is needed and discovered the new one if the DPCalendar.

I downloaded and tried this new free version. It works great, so I want to thank the authors for their efforts and I understand their point of view about support and the need to get paid to develop good software.

My only observation is that this free version has lost the Google calendar synch, which can only be achieved purchasing the Professional version (together with other plugins).

This simply means there is no more a free version capable to show the Google calendars in a Joomla website.

So I'd ask the authors to include in the free version at least one of the plugins that allow the synch with Google.



About the GCalendar plugin, that's ok, but it relies on the old GCalendar code which is no more maintained as the security best practices strongly suggest to remove aa code like this (my site has been recently attacked with a pattern that leveraged a possibile gcalendar vulnerability).



And, about the commercial version annual fee, it's nut much for the small amount of money, but non-profit websites like the one I manage (for free...) cannot simply allow to pay "multiple small fees" for all the commercial components.

So, a special price for non-profit organisations would be an option to add to license schema.



Thanks and keep up the good work

Great Extension


Posted on 16 September 2014

Lite version worked flawlessly for me however I really wanted some of the extras so bought the premium version and have not been disappointed. I'm now pulling calendars from Google, Exchange, iCal and a few internal calendars all at once. I don't think I could be more pleased with how everything is working. Even had a plugin created to pull data from a scheduling app we utilize. I would give this a higher rating if possible. Best calendar extension yet.


I have been using GCalendar for years and on the rare occasion I had an issue, I have always received great support from the developer. I have been using DPCalendar Lite and it works as well as its predecessor. Will upgrade to the Pro version to get the Google Calendar Plugin!


A product /company is judged by iits support and documentation. Essentialy how easy and user friendly their product is. This is a nice extension, well designed and graphivcally nice too.



However my problem was there is no clear documentation. That too is okay as I understand developers get busy. By my biggest disappointment was, there is no place to contact them or open a support ticket. The support button is useless as it just shows a list of bugs/support number. The event module does not display events from google calendar and there is nothing anywhere for me to get help or ask for help. Calendar module is fine and does show google calendar event.



I hope that the support area will improve or at least have a forum where we can get help from others.

Owner's reply: Providing support only for subscribers is a common business model among the Joomla developers. That's why we closed the old forum. We are convinced that it is better to give top notch support to subscribers instead of bad one for all.
Please read this blog post (https://joomla.digital-peak.com/blog/172-high-demand-to-our-support) to get more information about our support process.

Thanks for understanding.

A simple but powerful attachment extension suite which integrates seamless file attachments for articles and more. Just drag and drop files or copy paste your clipboard content into the article area and the attachment will be generated automatically. If the file can be viewed in the browser a preview mode is available and tracking of downloads comes out of the box. If your component triggers the onContentAfterDisplay event, DPAttachments will detect it and automatically integrates itself into the display area. DPAttachments integrates automatically with the following extensions: - Content Articles - DPCases - DPCalendar Events - many more .... If you want to integrate DPAttachments into your own Joomla extension read the developer guide at joomla.digital-peak.com. It takes three lines of code. We created DPAttachments for our own use and on request from our customers we made the extension suite available for free to the public. Use it, integrate it, extend it for free.
