Great extension


Posted on 02 February 2012
Very easy to use. Covers the whole range of functionality needed for event registration.



Very good that one could define own registration-forms for every event.



Only the template isn't full consistent (the same table of details is in one view realized as a HTML-definitionlist in the other view as a table, so I couldn't use the same CSS).



The support is excellent and very fast, both in the forum and with support tickets.

So it's a joy to work with this extension.
This extension is perfect.... Nothing else to add, it works smoothly out of the box.



I had a few problems with lightboxes, and their support team guided me to the solution through Skype... Can you have better than that ??



Stop looking for your solution, this is worth a lot more than the asked price...
Component is well made and functional, with many useful features. I'm experienced as a web developer and found it pretty straightforward to use. It is missing a few features that would make it perfect, but the developer is working on them (such as private events). By default it isn't the prettiest component, but with a little CSS you can skin any component. Good value, and recommended
It is exactly the component I needed for my site, and the support is just awesome.
Great extension. Did exactly what I needed. Awesome support from the developer. You will not regret buying this module, or any other from this company for that matter.
The product works extremely well and the few times I had an issue, their support resolved my problem quickly! They also added a feature I requested pretty quickly as well.



-Jacob
Was slow to get back to me, but was around the holidays. Once I finally got with them and their scheduled allowed them to focus more on my issues they were great! They also fix additional issues not related to the Extension for a small fee.



Could learn to be more patient and no so rude at times.



Had problem with the custom fields, they did help but mainly had to do the dirty work of allot of reading before additional support, even when I followed the info & images excellently still had issues, they would fix after but didn't like the fact I couldn't do it on my own.



When all said and done, ALLOT of patience, and calm when rude they did a great job. :)
I spent weeks looking for the extension that I needed. I tried and evaluated many reservations and booking extensions. This is BY FAR the best. It does exactly what it says it does and it does it extremely well. I was able to install and configure it in minutes. The support is first class and quite honestly, I would have been happy to pay much more. I had a deadline and was only able to meet it because the excellent quality of the extension and the super fast response from the developers. If I could give it ten stars, I would. Great job guys.
I am new to joomla. I have been developing a site for 5 months. I was creating an event site where hundreds of events in a dozen categories will be posted. I decided to use Event Booking (EB)initially because of the following features:

1. Price (you get what you pay for)

2. Automated Reminder emails

3. Automated confirmation emails

4. Overall layout and design

5. integration with paypal

and many others!



From the surface it seemed to offer everything the we needed. And for the most part it kind of does. Their feature list is very impressive, but when it came to actually making it work - that's another issue (lots of patches were necessary). I found that the program is not well thought out; many small things added up to huge problems. Many of the most important features really don't work, at least for our needs; if you have a very basic event site this should work for you. In the end i went with Registration Pro (RP) by Joomla Showroom. I wish I had done that from the beginning - it would have saved me about 3 months work.



So what are the pros and cons? here's the comparison:



Support:

EB - if you have anything slightly complicated you can expect to wait days for a response or not at all. just look through their sight and you will see what i'm talking about.

RP - generally within 12 hours, occasionally 24 hours (but lacks a user forum)



Reminder Email:

EB- Although you can create a custom reminder email, it lacks the ability to dynamically add many fields (like the location!!). So it doesn't really work. In other words if i need to send a reminder that tells the user where their event is I can't. Also how does reminder emails work?? you have to install a patch to your server - which doesn't work! Something called a chron job. So reminder emails? for me and others, doesn't work!

RP- Reminder email is highly configurable because it has many many dynamic fields you can add to the email. For instance we do not use the short description field on the site but in the back ground we have added a special equipments list for each event which reads "for this event you will need a shovel". In the email we just add the tag "{short desc}" where ever we want to add this message and voila! You can also specify when you want a reminder to be sent for EACH event. NO PATCHES. IT JUST WORKS out of the box.



Email Confirmation:

EB - although you can create a "custom" email confirmation where you can pull information from various fields in dynamically, there are not enough field tags available to make this particularly useful. The program will present an html email to the user with all the events an registration information; the specific event details are presented as a link from the event title in the email. This is problematic because if the user is using a text only email system they will only get code. You can not send text only emails. If you are trying to add information that is specific to the event but is not public on the site you can but can't do it. 1. Not enough fields are available to make it useful. if the user registers for more than one event the confirmation will only display information for the first event, if you are adding custom information. Among the many many missing tags? a location tag! I know this is a bit hard to explain but, when you get into the system it will easier to see the failure point.

RP - can send fully html OR text only emails; you can use html code or not. Most fields in the events page (if not all) can be added dynamically to the confirmation email. This didn't seem important in the beginning but has proven to be a huge time saver in the end.



Calendar Sold out Events:

EB - In order to show events as "sold out" you have to install a patch but it seems to be breaking people's sites.

RP- Out of the box. You can tell the calendar to mark events as available or sold out on the calendar.



Coupon Code:

EB - can specify only one event or all events that is all.

RP- can specify multiple events for any one coupon.



Calendar links:

EB - calendar has no way to point to a category of events only specific events. (but code was easily modified)

RP - same problem. (code was not easily modified and had to pay for customization)



Cart -

EB - has a cart module

RP - does not, but you can easily add this to a menu item.



Paypal Pro

EB - I did not get far enough to test whether or not this really worked.

RP - will need to pay for a third party plug-in ($25)



Design & CSS

EB - easily changed; overall fit my aesthetics better than RP.

RP - also easily changed but some were much more difficult to find (but they were very good about telling me where to look)



Tiered Price structure:

EB - a little bit more easily dealt than in RP. i can just put in a price for if they buy 1, 2, 3, tickets etc.

RP - can't seem to put in prices but can put in a percentage. This is not ideal.



Adding Attachments to Emails

EB- you can add an attachment to you confirmation email but not the reminder (but then again reminder didn't really work). and if user is purchasing multiple events only the first attachment will go.

RP - not available at all.



Registering for multiple events:

EB - Users can register for multiple events with just one form.

RP - users has to fill out a form for each event and check out all at once. Had to pay for customization so that the user only had to fill out just one form for all events.

Note: Although the EB system is better for the user, I believe this is why their confirmation emails have so many problems - so in the end it's a problem for the site owner.



Registration information:

EB- from what I remember and it has been more than 3 weeks since I was in the program, you can not get a list of attendees for JUST one event. THere is a list of all attendees for all events that are organizable by event - how often do you need that?

RP - NO problem with the above. You can get information per event.



User Support Forum:

EB - has one (but many slightly complex questions go unanswered)

RP - does not.



HTML descriptions

EB - you have to add a patch if you want to use html for an event or category description

RP - for events works out of the box. No category description out of the box.



The longer I used EB the more problems i found and the more people i found with other problems! I think if you have a few events, taking place in one location without any specific information you will need them to have later AND don't think that your customers will be signing up for multiple events. Then this program will work. Otherwise SERIOUSLY fork over the extra $50 and get Registration Pro. Fewer headaches. Although the features list is similar, RP's actually work the way you would expect them to work.



Honestly? I don't just want my money back, I want my time back! I kept on holding out hope that this thing would work and it never really did. I got suckered into very quick responses to questions in the first week. And then more and more time lagged in between questions. So my impression is if you can't get up and running the way you want quickly you're going to be out of luck for support. :(



Judging from when questions got answered and the developer's time zone (Vietnam) he clearly has a day job and does this on his off time.



I can not recommend it.
THIS EXTENSION IS AN ABSOLUTE WINNER!!



The OSSolution team have thought of everything you could possibly want and more. There are oodles of advanced functionality, loads of Modules and smooth integrations. The translation functionality is excellent which lets you change all titles etc without touching a line of code. But if you do want to the PHP and style sheets are easy to modify to make it just perfect.



I spec'ed out a pretty large site for a customer that needed some very specific event booking requirements (training courses) and this extension had 95% of the functionality I required! The rest was a breeze to add with the help of the OSSolution team. Saved me months of development. They are not only super responsive but very very talented developers indeed. I'm starting to think there is nothing they can't do.



I completely recommend this extension and these guys. 5 Stars!!
