I'm a long-time user of JCalPro who decided to try the chief competition. While I have nothing negative to say about the competitor, JCalPro works better for our users.



We believe JCalPro is templated better and is easier to use. For example, the "Add an Event" link was difficult to find in the competitor, but it's a beautifully-formatted, easy-to-find option on in the JCalPro layout. That seems true of most of its functions.



Historically, it has been much better integrated with Community Builder than the competition. It's not as good as it was, because they're a few months out from integrating CB profile calendar features in Joomla 3.2. But it's historically been a welcome link between a user's personal profile data and the site calendar.



Finally, I was moved to write this review because of recent excellent support. We had an odd problem with the search plugin, and they didn't forget us. They couldn't duplicate the problem but determined what might cause it, and fixed it with today's new release.



We recommend JCalPro highly.


I'm in a good position to review this extension as I've been using JCalPro since 2009. The extension is good enough for me to continue using, but the lack of resources that the developer puts into this extension is worrying. With one of their other plugins sh404sef they say "We do not sit on those laurels, and continually develop sh404SEF" but with JCalPro development is much slower and there hasn't been a release since August 2013.



I know of a couple of issues with the 'Latest Events module' when dealing with events that span multiple days. These simple issues should really have been sorted out a long time ago, they shouldn't have needed any attention being drawn to them on the forums. Who knows how long it will take to see a new release.



I do really like JCal Pro and really like how it looks, they did a good job with the new release, but the development of it is always a concern.



More attention is focused on Anything Digital's other extensions like sh404sef.



My hopes for the future would be that we see more maintenance and feature releases in the coming months and years for JCalPro. Continued releases are really needed by JCal customers.


Had to remove


Posted on 26 December 2013

I ended up removing this, couldn't see paying more for simple functionality. Really didn't do enough, Bought a 5 star Calendar and very happy... Support was great they tried... just needs an update to other products for todays market. Just didn't work with my commercial template.

Overall decent product. Sync with google calendar would be HUGE.

Support team was amazingly responsive.

Looking forward to future releases

Owner's reply: Glad it's working well for you! We're looking at sync options with google now.

After 4-5 years of using this calendar, we're moving to JEvent. Why? Two main reasons, there is no END time/date. You have to figure out the DURATION, whichis a PITA for weekend-long events.

Secondly, we've been getting hacked for a year from spammers, despite the JCal Pro reCaptcha. They looked at it and told us somehow people are logging on and posting them, which is NOT what is happening.

Also slow response to tech things.

Owner's reply: I'm sorry you've had a poor experience. Just a quick additional note to let you know that we've implemented this END TIME feature based on your feedback and users can use it in this mode or in DURATION mode. That way we have back-compatibility.

If you chose to try JCal Pro again, don't forget to check the new responsive calendar theme.

seems to nice one...

Fair enough extension, it could be improved though in the way it adapts to different templates

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. We have been working on something special for Joomla 3 and bootstrap that we'll be back-porting to Joomla 2.5. It should really help in this area.

Quite Awful


Posted on 09 November 2012

Sorry about the following rant. I guess this is 4 years of built-up frustration...



I've been screwing around with the JCal Pro extension since 2008 and it simply does not get better. Every so-called "upgrade" is a BIG step backwards. My clients are angry and I am exhausted trying to make JCal Pro work. I don't mind paying for it, but it should be free considering what a hassle it is to use.



What really gets me upset is the amount of time I spend troubleshooting, writing in the forums, testing, re-installing, backing up, wiping out database tables specific to the extension per customer support, and then being treated like I have installed the component incorrectly and don't know what I'm doing.



JCal Pro should not even exist. If they can't get it right they should just go away and leave us alone.

Owner's reply: I'm sorry for your experience. We'll happily offer a refund if JCal Pro does not suit your needs.

Excellent

It does all it says and support is awesome! I have no idea why others have issues, but I have been developing with Joomla since v1.0 and with this extension you get all you pay for and so much more. I am using this extension for a Knight's Of Columbus" website and they love it.



Great work guys!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. We'll be working on a great new bootstrapped version for Joomla 3.0 that is highly responsive.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the review. We'll get on those CB updates for the latest version.

Now supports Joomla 3! Switch Editors is a simple add-on that allows you to quickly and conveniently disable the WYSIWYG editor in the Joomla administrative backend or to switch between the available editors as required. For example, when you need to edit a module or article that contains code normally stripped out by most WYSIWYG editors, Editor Switcher allows you to avoid the rather tedious task of switching the editor in Joomla’s global configuration area (both before AND after editing the content) and thus saves time and frustration. Upon installation, a lightweight drop-down menu with the available editor options is displayed at the top-right of the administration area so that you never have to navigate away from your content to make changes with the appropriate editor (or no editor at all). Switch Editors has been written from the ground-up as a native extension for Joomla 2.5 and subsequent versions.

Advanced Site Search

Advanced Site Search is a radical re-imagining of the standard Joomla search application offering numerous advantages for end users. RELEVANT SEARCH RESULTS First and foremost, search results are ranked based on relevance, giving meaningful information for your site visitors and identifying the desired information more quickly. The relative ranking of each search result is optionally displayed (as shown in the screenshot below) allowing you to further evaluate similar results. MULTI-SITE SEARCH Advanced Site Search also makes it easy to securely search on multiple Joomla sites simultaneously. This is perfect for users with two or more sites within one organization, for example. Again, the context of the keywords on the site is used to determine the most relevant search results across all the sites specified. SMART FILTERING Once you’ve performed a search, Advanced Site Search also offers powerful and familiar filters to narrow the results further. Fast Filters quickly show results from only the past day, week month or year. Advanced Filters contain the powerful filtering tools with options for exact date ranges and content categories. EASY TO USE We’ve also spent a lot of time making the interface friendly and intuitive. For example, with search results ranking there is no need for users to choose between searching for any keyword vs. an exact phrase match. Advanced Site Search is smart enough to recognize these and other similar patterns and and rank search results accordingly. FLEXIBLE What’s more, site administrators can customize exactly how relevance is calculated! Even powerful search engines such as Google do not let third-parties know exactly how their rankings are calculated. If you are currently using Google Search or a similar service on your site you’ll want to give Advanced Site Search a try. The ability to customize how relevance is calculated is yet another novel feature of Advanced Site Search and allows site owners to taylor the search experience to the end users. UNPARALLELED BACKEND SEARCH With these features and many more such as PDF and image indexing, new content notifications and the most powerful backend search ever created for Joomla, we are confident that once you try Advanced Site Search you’ll will never settle for another search engine for your Joomla web site.
