JCal Pro
I am a complete CS/Joomla! noob. But a long time IT professional who is just now getting to know the flexibility and power of Open Source. Can you say front huh what? I needed a simple to install and configure calendar that provided an easy way to be edited via the front end. I litteraly installed and tested 6 different calendars. I was at wits end and ready to give up. I decided to try one more and that was JCal Pro. All I can say is WOW! It looks great. Configuration was a snap. Anyone out there thinking of writing your own extensions needs to take a look at this for how to do it the right way. I had this calendar installed and working in about 30 minutes. The mini calendar and Latest Events menu items are awesome. I simply can not say enough good things about this calender! I am not a CS kinda guy so anything that I can easily be set up and configured via Joomla! admin is a neccessity. But that doesn't mean it shouldn't look good. The bugs in JCal Pro are more of an annoyance than anything. You can work around them. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to edit events from the backend. It currently only allows editing the categories. But hey if thats the only problem I have....
