Ladies and gentlemen, our new component, MijoEvents
, is available for public! MijoEvents is and advanced event management and booking component for Joomla 2.5 and 3.x
MijoEvents offers you an All-in-One platform to create Events (free or paid), Custom Fields (for events or registration), Locations (with map) and allows your visitors to Register (individual or group) with an easy to use interface.
MijoEvents is native Joomla component written from scratch by Mustafa
in 5 months for Joomla 2.5
. Mehmet helped him in implementing Ajax technology and Gilbert prepared the migration tools (from the other event components).
Why reinventing the wheel?
I agree, that is how it sounds initially as there are tens of event management, calendar and booking components already available for Joomla. However, none of them really offer a complete solution. Keep reading if you really want to learn the why.
This is the biggest bomb of MijoEvents, the seamless integration with MijoShop. All of the event registration/booking part of MijoEvents is powered by the leading Joomla Shopping Cart, MijoShop
, which is the e-Commerce power of OpenCart inside Joomla! with 600+ payment gateways available. Not only payment gateways but all taxing, invoicing, discount, currency etc. features of MijoShop are fully integrated with MijoEvents.
Also, the Integration Tab feature of MijoShop is fully applicable with MijoEvents too so you can assign a user to a specific Joomla Group or AcyMailing list after he/she gets registered to a specific event. These articles tell
more about this feature.
The custom fields feature is the second deadly weapon of MijoEvents. You can create unlimited custom fields for Events and Registration. MijoEvents offers you 12 field types and you can add/remove any field which means there is NO static field in the registration form, all of them are dynamic and managed from the backend as shown in the second screenshot up here. In short, you have a CCK based registration system.
We've added tons of options in order to make the registration system as flexible as possible. You can have free or paid registration, set the user group that the attender must have before getting registered, offer individual, group or both registration types, set discounts for group registration
based on the number of attenders etc. We've also implemented a waiting list system so that the registration continues even if the event gets full. If anyone cancel the registration then the system will automatically push the first user from the waiting list to the registered list.
Another robust feature of MijoEvents is the easy to use locations page. You start typing the address and MijoEvents shows you the closest suggestions using the Google API. Another way is to just drag and drop the pin on the map and the address+coordinates will be automatically grabbed.
Customize the emails
Email system is one of the most important parts for a site that allows event registration and MijoEvents provides an extremely powerful and flexible system where you can customize your emails using tags and Joomla editor. Some emails can also be customized per event.
For multilingual websites, MijoEvents allows you to create events, categories, locations and custom fields in different languages on the fly.
MijoEvents ships with a modern infrastucture with features such as MVC design (no spaghetti code), PHP 5.4 support, clean URLs with SEF/SEO support, extendible trigger system etc.
Migration from other components
Are you already using an events component and want to try MijoEvents without extra labour? Nothing to worry about, we have written migration scripts for the most popular components, here
you can find the full list.
As you can see from the feature list
, there are a lot of features such as recurring events, comments integration, CSS based calendar etc. that I can mention here but...
So, returing to the first question, why reinventing the wheel? Really? We did not reinvent the wheel but put all the wheels together to the car! There are some great event management components out there but they don't offer booking and/or there are other event booking components that offer just 4-5 payment gateways. The others don't offer custom fields etc.
In short, none of them offer an All-in-One platform as MijoEvents does.
