Introduction

Events

FastBroadcast is specially optimized to publish Calendars for dance and spiritual events like partys, concerts, workshops, retreats, lessons etc.. The Events are stored at the fastbroadcast.de server where the component requests records for a specific datapool like dance and spirit and or a specific scene like salsa, tango, meditation, yoga, science.

  • Get this

You can setup the component to request specific information for a region with geocoordinates or the name of a city. So for example it is easy to build up a Calendar that shows the events of the spiritual-scene in Hamburg or just a part of it like yoga or meditation.

For creating and editing events there is a special application on fastbroadcast.de you can download and use for free. Organizer and teacher can use this tool to publish their events to a great community.

For the administrator there ist less to do. The organizers and teachers are the owners of the events and they can edit and publish it in realtime.

Some features:
- Events are shown on other sites, portales and social media platforms

IMPORTANT: This extension comes without a (Joomla-)backend to insert and edit events. To insert and edit events there is a desktop application you can download for free too.


Not yet ready


Posted on 14 November 2012

It would appear that I tried to use this too soon. I downloaded the component and modules as well and the program for the PC. Nothing yielded any results and NO documentation. In fact, the PC application would not even load and Norton issued warnings but I proceeded anyway. This extension should not be listed until ready.

Owner's reply: Hi Billy Bob, yes it's true, the approval time for the component on joomla.org came faster than we believed. We still work to publish any required information on our page.
The message during the installation process comes because we are not willing to buy an expensive zertificat from microsoft.
The first start of the desktop software will show a login dialog and an option to register. We urgently need valid user registrations, because any user has the ability to publish events to any requesting application.
Another problem might be that we are not native english speakers. The content on fastbroadcast is written in german. At this time the system is most usefull for Germany, Austria and Swisse but we will do our best to give anyone who is interested in this system support on the forum at fastbroadcast.de.
