The import from iCagenda failed, again the support guys logged in and sorted with with the help of their SQL plugin. Again - support good, but issues like this don't fill me with confidence in the product as it's an advertised feature.
Displaying a calendar was good, until I tried to change to a weekly view. Again, a support ticket later and login from support sorted it out - but again, it shouldn't be happening in the first place.
The out of the box template has issues working within the out-the-box Joomla 3.1 template when having modules left and right leaving centre free for content.
The admin interface isn't particularly clear, a bit clutter, but it does look like it will ultimately do what I want when I finally work through the quirks/learn to use it.
It's a bit rough round the edges. I'd rather the software worked straight through the install/configuration process rather than having to contact support (and give them, an admin account! :( ). If I ever have to reinstall Joomla/move server etc I don't have much faith that I wouldn't have to contact support.
I am happy that support will help me through issues however so my review goes from 3 to 4 stars. If I hadn't had these issues and the interface was a little nicer it'd be a 5 star review.
We have only 1 user that had problems with iCagenda but he doesn't have the other issues mentioned here, strange...
The default layout is clean, while providing as much information as you could want to about the event.
I'm a web developer myself and feel this extension provides a example of good interface design.
This was the only calendar extension I found that said it could store attachments per event - which is the main reason I decided to try this one. Please don't remove that feature!
The registration thing is nice, but to be really useful to me I would need to be able to plugin a payment system and custom fields during registration (if dev wants to know more, drop me a line).
It will work well for the free events we put on though.
My Joomla experience: sites running in 1.5/2.5 but new to 3
Thank you very much for your detailled review!
Don't worry about attachment feature, i will keep it! (and in the future, i want to enhance it!)
A clean and ergonomic design is one of my goal! ;-)
About paiement, this is something i will developpe by the end of the year, but maybe one simple system in free version (check, wire transfert), and an advanced one in the Pro version (with integrated Paypal system and else...). All this is currently in study.
Keep in Touch! And keep an eye on the roadmap topic on joomlic forum ;-)
