    Anyone know a good Calendar Module?

    So do ya?!



    I found one, which looked promising, you could add events to it. But when you changed months it refreshed the whole page...which i found a bit pants and annoying.

    Anyone know of any better ones?

    Gonna HiJack this thread a little. I've downloaded this Calendar and installed it with no errors. How the heck do I get the Mini-Calendar to display on the front page please.

    The JEvents Calendar is under the components menu, and I've looked through the JEvents Forums but nothing there seems to help. (About making a new menu and pointing it to something that I cant see).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Simon.

    You need to create a new module in the module manager. When you click on new it should give you a list of the different module you have installed. I can't remember of the top of my head what its called something like minicalandar then you publish it to a template position.

    Thats assuming you've installed the module

    Joomla is very modular

    Go to Extensions>Module Manager>New Module and select JEvents Calendar. Please note that you should have created your JEvents Category beforehand so that you can select it from Specified Category in the Parameters>Module Parameters section (right hand side column). You can set the visibility and position from the Details Parameters section on the left.

    We use GCalendar, which works very nicely with all our calendars off Google Apps. Also has a nice 'upcoming events' module.

    We have shared calendars through Google Apps Education Edition, which are then made available through Joomla via the GCalendar component / modules.
