I started to register and pay, but then had real issues and it is such a shame that the developer could not be bothered to add a proper payment registration process. As I have now cancelled my order because of it.
It clearly states that you get 30 days for free but it forces you to pay the seven euros before you can actually have the 30 days for free and even then you are not told how.
Then when you get the registration email you are then told to enter your country and it just gives two options... Switzerland and "extra Switzerland" No other countries... Just stupid.
There is also a section that you have to fill in for VAT code. Well a lot of businesses don't know the code so why force people to add it. Without it you cannot finish the payment process. Like many others they have given up and cancelled their order, like me!
I just think the developer did not care about this part of the order process and just threw anything in there.
Such a shame as I was ready to buy this for my website and send you recommendations.
I'm very surprised that no-one else has made a note about the extension or a positive mention here as the module is brilliant and should have a lot more followers that just me.
You don't even have to register to use it which is even better and as a bonus the developer gives you choice whether to mention his work or not too.
Many developers put back links in, but I can not see any, so thank you.
Make sure you do get XMAP installed as Google then crawls your website faster than it would without it. As this helps the SEO for your site and helps the pages get indexed so much quicker.
I can see why the developer is not addressing the issues as it is a non-commercial version.
Saying that.. I would pay for a pro version if it worked on all platforms. It works flawlessly on 3.0 and 2.5 but 1.7 it crashes every time on every template. This is a real shame as 50% of my 200 client sites do not have XMAP and if it worked multi platform I would happily send a BEER keg. :-)
Thanks for this version, but please move forward with it as it could easily become one of the finest core joomla components built.
Super plugin and component.
Yes most people use facebook, twitter, youtube, linked in and myspace, but others use many different social media groups and I think you will lose votes and positive comments due to this.
Overall it is a solid module and I wish you well with it as it is great, but could be better.
Thank you for your kinda review Santino. You do make a good providing options for more social networks and we will definitely be releasing this in the next update.
Thanks for making it cost effective for me to buy, test and use it.
I may buy the PRO version later on, which is also cheap at £34 but for now the non-commercial one is fantastic.
The component needs some minor upgrades that require coding but the overall project is VERY CLEVER and INTUITIVE.
Functionality: Easy to install for 2.5 with swift precision and styling for the Control Panel. Everything has been well thought out for the layout, buttons and Agendas.
The Newsletter is to me an added bonus. I was going to use another newsletter component and bolt it onto the website for customers, but this does that as well - Just awesome.
I especially like that you do not have to provide a full registration on your website for the non commercial one and downloading it is very simple.
You have added a video in the Joomla admin section on how to use it. This is a fantastic addition. It is a shame that other developers are not as future proof as yourself.
Great job. Simply the best component for Event Management.
Thanks for your Review!
Just an info about Pro Version : in GBP, it is currently £8.87 (plus tax/VAT) for one year (not £34 !).
So... cheaper! ;-)
This Pro Version has exactly the same features of the free version, but in Pro, you have a support by email, and the possibility of removal of the signature.
Hope you the best experience with iCagenda, and sure you will appreciate the new features to come!
I was about to go to bed with a heavy head. As I have been searching for a cheap banner rotation management system for awhile now and this pops up.
This is a wonderful, easy and intuitive system to use. For the cost of it. It's ACE.
You should give yourself a pat on the back for the development and creation of this. As you have done us proud.
If you are looking for simplicity and an ultra friendly installation. Then this is the one.
I especially like the ability to change the rotation from flash to basic rotations. So that it works on iphones ETC.
Nice job guys. Keep up the good work.
If you were able to remove the the text you have added in the Weather Condition: KWEATHER_LIGHT_SNOW
You would get more comments and more people downloading it and giving donations. I would if it was removed on the next upgrade.
Good job though, it looks and works perfectly other than this small blip.
Functionality: Perfect, wouldn't change a thing, loaded on 2.5 first time and has already picked up some missing meta data which is great.
Price: Overpriced in my opinion. If it was $39.99 I would consider it, but £49.99 for the PRO version is steep.
Styling: Perfect! Great layout and forward thinking development.
Keep up the good work.
Price: As a Commercial extension, I believe it is a GOOD value.
Functionality: Really fast install on the component no issues at all and a nice and a straight forward approach. The layout looks simple and clean and is easy to use for any level of website user.
Commercial Value: It needs major development to make it so much better, which is why it only has has a few feedback comments on Joomla from March 2012.
1. Colour Styling
The admin section does not allow you to colour code the new testimonials, this is poor.
There is no editor available to allow you to bold the text, or do italics to make the text stand out. You cannot even space out the comments that people leave. For example, if they leave a large testimonial and want to space out a few paragraphs. They cannot, it is just all bunched together, this is just stupid.
3. Image Attachments
Unable to add a client logo or photo of them. So each testimonial just looks plain, boring and uninteresting.
Also, after reading the comments from one of the submitted views. It had said that the developer was sent a message asking for text add ons and colour changes. Which was done on his component, so why was this not rolled out as a development upgrade when it clearly needs it.
This component is good don't get me wrong, but it needs major work to be wonderful.
I purchased a slideshow a year ago and the support was very slow. This has now completely changed and this is a very positive step in the company's evolution.
The Component purchased was very simple to install, and it was a joy to be able to get a response from their technical team within minutes and not days, like other developers.
If you are looking for a component gallery that is totally inspired and simple to use, which allows you to look totally professional and offers "you" the customer, a first class service. Stop thinking about buying it, and start doing it.
