This Component will be extremely frustrating to use unless you are a programmer with a thorough knowledge of the inner workings of Joomla components.
Terrible forums and useless support. Replies to your questions will be cryptic, highly technical and in programmer jargon. Not user friendly at all.
I'm sorry your experience with JEvents was disappointing. We pride ourselves on responsive support in the forums.
If you can follow up in the forum to describe the problems you have encountered we will do our best to help, and if our answers are too technical just let us know and we'll provide more detail as required.
