Suggested templates

We built the templates to work well with Events Booking: http://joomdonation.com/joomla-templates/multipurpose-joomla-templates.html


I have settled down with this component for my clients websites, after trying (and paying) many others.

It simply works well and is clear to use.

Support is more than excellent, and there are a lot of payment options too.

Glad we got some real pro companies making great components.


Amazing Extension


Posted on 23 December 2011

Amazing extension and as usual very helpful people. very good support. This is my third extension from this company and never had any problem. Always reply to e mails immediately and provide excellent support.


If you're looking for the best event booking extension for Joomla you can stop looking.



Great product with many configuration possibilities.

Nothing to worry about, easy to configure and very fast.



The support is outstanding!



//A very happy customer


Good component


Posted on 14 December 2011

Very easy to use component for your events. It does all the necessary things I was looking for.

But if you like to make sure the component and modules fit into your design, you have to understand quite a lot of css and html codes. The Ossolution team is very helpful and a big THANK YOU for that. But still, a few extra´s in the configuration wouldn´t be a bad idea for a following update.

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking time to leave my extension your rating and review (a nice review :)). I just want to correct one thing in your review :

You said "But if you like to make sure the component and modules fit into your design, you have to understand quite a lot of css and html codes".

I believe the extension by default can work on any templates without any modification. For some special templates, you might have to modify css alitle and in this case, if you need help, our template/css developers are available to help you with these small modification .

Regards,

Ossolution Team

Good-to-excellent App


Posted on 14 December 2011

I find that this app, though a little convoluted to install given all the pieces that are loaded separately, worked surprisingly well with only modest effort. It seems that the flexibility to push the boundaries is there, but documentation only covers the basics, and questions to the forum go unanswered for days (or at least mine have). Still, there's a lot to like here - and the next best option costs more than twice as much. Docked one star for slow forum responses, will increase to 5 stars with timelier responses.

Owner's reply: I was alitle slow on response the questions on forum because It was my wedding and I could not work much at the time. The wedding is over and I am now back to normal work, so all the questions will be answered very fast (in less than 24 hours) from now on !

Amazing. I have purchased and used all the registration systems for Joomla! and this is far and away the best!! Simple to use, multiple child categories, category calendar views and the default design fits my site like a glove - unlike the other reg-components which look they were designed by an MS excel expert. Do not waste your time anywhere else!


Great booking module


Posted on 22 November 2011

I've searched high and low for modules like this and this one is the best of them all. Easy to install. Easy to manage. And when I had a problem they were able to show me where I went wrong. We plan on using this module for all of our events!


I had used DT register before. But I tried this for my new event site. tuffcatrun.com. The app installed with no issues and it was much easier to set up than dt register. I highly recommend this application.


Ok but room for improvements


Posted on 08 November 2011

Yes this IS a good component, but a lot of room for improvements.

I am missing functionality as

1) More flexible and different payment options (must be easy to configure)

2) All hours are in AM/PM in the backend. Must have 24H!

3) Better and "leaner" integration with CB (community builder) - it is not working as it should with own added fields etc.

4) Should be possible to display extra fields in the "view details" on events. Make them cofigurable.

5) Could be cool to have more templates on specially the calendar view. Rounded corners would be nice (like Google calendars ...)

6) Options to control the colors in backgrounds and textx etc via the backend for all the different layouts to avoid changing php and css files. Also here have a "template" approach ...

7) Make the language/translations options "shareable" and automatic when updates. Look how ACYMAIL have done it - that is top dollar ;)

8) Make it possible to use pictures in events



On the support side, it would be nice to see things moving a little faster - you reply to mails but not often on forum threads - and you seem to promise more than you can hold in your mails. Please be honest about deadlines - as much as you can. Let us know if you cant make a deadline - that is better than silence ...

The website is a little confusing. It is hard to see what version of the component is currently active and for what version of joomla it is for.

Would be nice to have a newsletter informing us users with news of "Event booking" and links to the new downloadable version (the current way to download updates is very confusing and misleading. It is always unclear if you get the right version… )



Please see the above as constructive criticism as I want this good project the very best - othervise I wouldn't take the time to write all this. See it as an opportunity to make things better. I am only writing this because I find the component good and would like to keep using it on many of my future websites.

Thank you for a good component and look forward to follow it in the future.


Have been using this extension for a few months now and found it easy to use and trouble free with a clean backend layout.



I would suggest it to anyone looking for a reliable event booking management system. The configuration options and flexability alone makes it well worth the small investment



Translation list with the ability to add additional translations is an excellent feature - great for when you need to make your own customised views



The CSS file is well thought out and just about everything on a given page can be customised quickly without fear of upsetting the layout of other extensions



Support is excellent with fast response and assistance even for the customisation and tweaks that i needed to make. The developer is also rather active in the support forums which is great.



Thanks for producing such a well designed and supported extension
