Beware: While the non-commercial SubiPro component seems to be very powerful, there is absolutely NO support from the developers unless you purchase a subscription. No, not even a FAQ for basic help. There is a public forum where the user community will give some support.

That said, the component seems to be very powerful and seems to have many extensions available. Unfortunately, there is an extremely steep learning curve. It also looks like you have to learn a new language (XSL) to customize much of the component.

Adding a basic manual or FAQ would go a long way toward improving this product.

JCal Pro
I've installed JCal Pro on our church's Joomla website twice and both times it's created serious problems. The entire site locks up when the church's secretary is adding events to the calendar. Don't know why or how.

The last time this happened, about a week ago, logs showed that one of the processes used by JCal Pro ([/index.php?optioncom_jcalpro&Itemid3&extmodeday&date200])) was using well over 50% of the server's CPU resources and 7% of the available memory (almost 1 GB). This shut the entire server down almost continuously over a period of several hours until JCal Pro was removed from the system. We've had no problems since then.

On the positive side, JCal Pro is a snap to set up and really looks great. I just wish I could trust it to work properly and not lock the system.

You are using an obsolete version. I recommend an upgrade to the latest stable version.
