JEM is based on the famous Eventlist component, originally developed by Schlu.
It's a full-featured package that includes the core component as well as some very helpful modules and plugins.
JEM is open source and is developed, maintained and supported by an active community of volunteers.
JEM 2.3.3 is a maintenance version with minor changes to make JEM install correctly on Joomla 3.10.1. JEM 2.3.3 is not yet ready for PHP8 / Joomla4.
JEM 2.3.1 is a maintenance version. Changes are made only in the component with some fixes for bugs and broken views. JEM 2.3.1 is not yet ready for PHP8.
We are proud to announce JEM 2.3.0, our first fully responsive version of JEM! We also cleaned up the Frontend Edit Event screen to make it more logical and fixed a number of other enhancements. Check the change log at our site to see them all.
Please note thif you are updating an existing install, JEM automatically switches to this new responsive layout. If you want to use the old layout, in the Backend of your Joomla site go to Components -> JEM -> Settings -> Basic Settings and under Style, change the Layout Style back to Legacy (Table Style)
We just released Version 2.2.3. Apart from many little fixes, we have added some nice new functions like Copy buttons for events and venues, straight from the details view and Calendar view, Ajax functionality now implemented in the standard Calendar Module (supports Ajax whenever possible), and registrations are now cleaned up on event deletion.
Version 2.2.2 is out, now using the Joomla! Update System, so you will never miss a new version again! We also improved the code, thus making our rock stable extension even faster than before. We introduce custom fields in modules and there is a brand new plugin to list your events in any article.
Version 2.2.0 is out, featuring enhanced Event Registration possibilities. Event creators can Invite, users can set they will Attend / Wil Not Attend. The mailer plugin now supports these changes too.
Apart for this we modified many views and fixes some other minor issues.
For version 2.1.6 we are happy to announce that JEM is now fully PHP7 compatible! We also introduce a sidebar in the backend views when installed on Joomla 3, thus giving JEM a more native J!3 user experience.
Event registration has been enhanced, to allow attendees to send an additional comment with their registration.
And apart from this, many, many smaller enhancements and bug fixes.
A new version of JEM was released. Along with a lot of smaller improvements (see the changelog for them) we are taking a huge step forward, bringing JEM in line with the standard Joomla ACL rules.
Before you upgrade a current installation please consider:
If you use template overrides please note that all views have been changed and there is a good chance that your overrides won't work as expected. So please check the changes and adapt your files.
The JEM Team have released a security release and we encourage all JEM users to update your current installations.
Additionally, you will find a new module in the package: the Jubilee Module. This module shows (past) events on a specific (e.g. current) day and month ignoring the year. Useful e.g. for a birthday list.
It's our birthday gift to the Joomla! Community that now celebrates it's 10th Birthday!
