Events Calendar for JomSocial

May 8th, 2013

Display events created in the JomSocial community component in an events calendar module.

This module works with all versions of JomSocial and installs natively in Joomla 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.0 in one install package.

The look and feel of the calendar can also be changed via CSS or by creating a theme using the jQuery UI Themeroller: http://jqueryui.com/themeroller/

Use your own custom Themeroller theme or select one of the 25 included themes.

Features of this module include:
Option to limit the calendar to display only public events
Option to limit the calendar to display only certain event categories
Assign different colors to different event categories
Change the look of the calendar via CSS or a jQuery Themeroller UI theme
Choose which calendar views and buttons are available

Other available configuration options include changing the displayed time format, changing the words (language) displayed, and more.

The module includes documentation on configuration options and instructions on how to set up a Themeroller theme and CSS tweaks.

The calendar uses the jQuery library. Joomla templates that load the library at the bottom of a page might cause the calendar to not appear. While I’ve done my best to avoid this issue, it might require one of the free Joomla plugins that helps you manage the loading of the jQuery library.
