The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

I use JEvents to display a list of future concerts for bands, and I don't need the calendar facilities. Since becoming a combined installer, it is easy to install and to manage the events. Also quite easy to adjust the appearance of the events lists.

- good choice of menu item types to display the events list
- good support for front-end events admin
- custom layout settings for individual event displays

Good support
- I found a minor bug, reported it on the forum, the JEvents team was supportive and helpful

This extension is alive with active development - well done to the JEvents team - I recommend this extension!

SP Thumbnail
Using Joomla 2.5.1.

I wanted a plug-in to open a lightbox (or similar) to display original image, on clicking image thumbnail in front-end article.

SP Thumbnail was very simple to install and use, and the facility to use CSS class(es) to control lightbox is exactly what I need. Well done! Modal window opens very fast.

However, it does not seem to generate a thumbnail for the small view - but uses the original image, scaled by attributes of img element - no saving in page display times etc for large original images.

So a miss for me I am afraid.
