JCal Pro® 3 is a comprehensive events calendar for Joomla with a gorgeous, CSS-based display featuring web 2.0 navigation. It is very flexible with many, many configuration and display options. As such, JCal Pro® can be configured as a single, simple calendar for personal use to a robust multi-calendar/multi-category configuration for enterprise/business/NGO use. Common examples of web sites using JCal Pro® include community calendars, performance calendars for bands/stadiums, personal shared calendars for online groups, etc..
In JCal Pro® 3, events can be organized into categories, can belong to multiple categories, and can be displayed in various views such as monthly, weekly, daily, etc... In addition, JCal Pro® 3 has an advanced recurring events system that supports even the most complex events (i.e. 3rd Thursday or every other month) and also allows the customization of individual instances of a recurring series of events.
Event administration is also powerful in JCal Pro®. Events can be managed from behind the Joomla administrative backend or events may be added from the public front-end. This allows for community contributions. These types of submissions are protected by the anti-spam system reCaptcha, and additional moderation of submitted events is available so that submitted events can be optionally held for administrative review and approval. JCal 3 also has an integrated registration process with unlimited configurable registration forms and custom fields. The functions available to users are controlled per category using Joomla 2.5's ACL.
JCal Pro® 3 has a built in location manager with Google maps integration, so that locations may be saved and reused. This not only adds the abilty to create events quickly, but using the modules users can find upcoming events near them based on their location.
