The JEvents package includes the main component, several modules and plugins to provide a feature rich solution to cover all of your event / calendar needs. Here is a quick rundown of what is included:

Events Component

  • One-off Events and complex repeat patterns of events that can be created and viewed in an attractive calendar and a variety of list formats
  • Multiple design layouts possible and customisable as we follow the Joomla! template override standards.
  • Fully compatible with Joomla MVC framework
  • iCal imports and exports of events and calendars - import a calendar from Google and from your phone and present the merged list of events in a singular calendar or event list view
  • Repeat event exception handling - remove one event repeat or change the event repeat date, the repeat time or the event description etc.
    • Support all day events or events with no end times
  • Events can be placed in multiple categories and calendar views that can be customised to show events from all or some of these categories
  • Optional checking for overlapping events on a global or category specific basis - so you can block event creation when the new event overlaps with an existing event

Custom layouts editor

If you're not happy with the default output - we offer a unique Layout editing tool to perfect the presentation of your single event pages, event lists and calendar views of your events. With just some basic HTML and CSS you can really customise the whole page to create the perfect event calendar for your needs

  • Edit how to display your events in: Events Detail page, Event List views or in the Monthly Calendar cells.
  • You can even customise the event editing page to make it easier for your users to submit events or edit an existing event
  • Custom layouts can be category specific, so your sports events can be laid out differently to your music events etc.
  • Running a multilingual site? Your layouts can also be language specific!! You can create translations of your events too so your visitors will see the details of each event in their own language.

Modules

  • Event Calendar module provides you with a basic monthly calendar view. Coloured to highlight when events are occurring and links to day lists of events or directly to single events.
  • Latest events module (List of events) which gives a highly configurable summary of upcoming events, recently created events or popular events
  • Events legend (Category List) - displayed alongside the component gives you a summary of event categories and an easy way to limit the events shown to specific categories
  • Filter module allows you to filter/search the events being displayed using a variety of search filters which are selectable within the module.

Events Search Plugin

  • A search plugin that enables the global Joomla search to search from the events in your event calendar

Availability

JEvents has been powering event and calendar functionality on Joomla websites since 2006 and we have helped countless users to get their website running with a fully functional events / calendar system and will keep on providing JEvents for the foreseeable future. We are passionate about Joomla! and have been from the beginning so we are not going anywhere soon.

JEvents 3.4 is available for general download - this is a Joomla 3.x native component that takes JEvents to the next level using jQuery and Bootstrap.

Addons Available

Free and paid extensions are available to further extend the functionality of JEvents from our site and from 3rd party developers. You can therefore further and enhance your events management and presentation capabilities.

Functionality
Has most functions you need in the calendar. Note that this is not the prettiest out there.
Ease of use
Although not the prettiest, it is easy to use and easy to customise.
Support
I never use support, so I will give this is GOOD GOOD GOOD 4 stars.
Documentation
Documentation is good, but most importantly has an active forum participation and information.
I used this to: Events POE and POS. Calendars for our next and future websites. Thank you

This is a great extension



Posted on 14 February 2020
Functionality
This extension has been around for many years and offers a great range of options if you sign up for the Club add-ons.
Ease of use
I am a relative newcomer to Joomla but have found this very intuitive to use.
Support
I joined the Silver club so that I could access a CCK add-on that links JEvents to Zoo. I needed some tweaks and the support was fantastic!
Documentation
There is a comprehensive document available once you sign up as a club member, although to be honest I found that it was fairly easy to use.
I used this to: A community interest company site supporting health professionals and patient groups.

Best event extension



Posted on 21 January 2020
Functionality
Works perfectly well and have all the functionalities available that an event extension should have.
Ease of use
Easy to setup but a bit difficult to use but can learn over the time.
Support
Documentation
I used this to: Used this on one of my client's event company's website for calendar purpose.

The one I keep



Posted on 09 October 2019
Functionality
I tested many others, finally kept using Jevents: the most complete, the max features. Very advanced project covering anything you can hope
Ease of use
Basically easy to use & set, perhaps you'll need to extend your aknowledge if you plan to customize some views but always attainable goals
Support
I asked more than due & got an involved support to enhance the standard to fit my own; never heard about extra charge for customization
Documentation
Helpful to customize some views and assisted by Jevents Team when "out" of knowledge
I used this to: Our sport club for trainings and competitions with susceptible population (children, teenagers).
Coaches were happy to get a perfect multicategories event capability of the component avoiding to duplicate entries.
Functionality
The beautiful calendar demos you see in their website, only work that well from a menu link. When used them in a module they are corrupted.
Ease of use
JEvents has always been easy to use and use to be my GoTo extension. Unfortunately trying to get the calendar in modules falls short.
Support
Support is slow but decent. Tony tried to get the calendar theme Ruthin to work in a module but couldn't.
Documentation
Is extensive but lacking in certain details. For instance, no mention that JEvents in a module only works with their standard layouts.
I used this to: I no longer use JEvents as it's too problematic. If I can't make it work correctly in a module it's of little use to me.
Owner's reply: Hello Patrick,

We are very sorry to hear this. You have used us for many years in the past as you stated. JEvents is a standard Joomla! Component with some modules and many many plugins. Unfortunately in this case you wanted a specific monthly calendar component view to be used in a module position and that's not how any Joomla! component works I am afraid.

As always we take suggestions onboard and will be looking to add in a 'Component' rendering Module.
Functionality
Functions are great. Even RSS Feed and Google Calendar are available
Ease of use
Works great, right after download, install it, and it's working. Just like that!
Support
Support is great, I had some problems with frontend mdoule, support reacted within 24 hrs after request.
Documentation
Good. For free version good, but for more advanced you need to upgrade.
I used this to: My rowing club, for all of our events. I created a link to Google Calendar, and via Google Calender I can fetch the events to my digital signage screen!
Functionality
Many options, modules and types of menu items. You can create a calendar with event output. You can create separate event pages.
Ease of use
If you do not delve into a large number of settings, then you can configure the component in 30-50 minutes.
Documentation
Good documentation with easy navigation. Documentation is divided according to component revisions (subscriptions).
I used this to: display the calendar of events on a separate page. I also created several event pages and added a small calendar module.
Functionality
Used it across various websites, once it is set up it was exactly what our clients were after!
Ease of use
Fairly easy to use, once you familiarise yourself with the settings but the support when stuck really helps to clarify everything.
Support
As above, friendly and knowledgeable and able to fix any issues that arise.
Documentation
I used this to: Managing events and bookings on websites :) Have used to register sports teams and show calendar events.
