Many people if not, MOST, like to just jump in and start using things without reading the documentation. I know, I'm oe of them too. So, to forwarn you, here are some things you'll need to do in the component first before you can create any events.

These are the required first steps you need to take.

BEFORE YOU CREATE AN EVENT! The system will prompt you do perform these tasks.

1.     Create the event category 

2.     Create a venue location 

3.     Create your registration form

4.     Publish your payment plugin 

Once you have done these items, you can create an event. Any event will require the above items be done before you can create your first event.

For the rest of you that really like to follow more detailed instructions please continue on with reading this documentation.

Managing Event Registration Manager King Categories

Event Registration Manager King allows you to create unlimited categories. Each event must be assigned to a category.

Each category can be publish or unpublish as needed. If a category isn't assigned to any events it will not show up in the category list views in the front end of the site. If a category is not assigned, it will not be hidden in the Category Grid View.

category manager


When you add a category, it will be using our own internal category system instead of the standard Joomla category system because we like to add a few more options to make things prettier in the front end. From here, you can set the parent category to make a multi level category system, a category description, text color and background color.

Adding Colors to Categories

This is where you can set the background color and the text colors for this category by using the color pickers that are in each field. You should make sure that you dont select the same colors for both fields or you won't be able to read the text.

Whichever color you choose, the background of the category in the front end will have that color as its background label colors in the calendar and accordion category views.

category settings

To create an Organizer or Instructor profile for your event, you need to first go to the organizers List.
Click New to create a new profile and you will be taken to the form for creating the profile.
On the New or Edit profile page, you need to link the profile to a joomla user account. So the account will need to exist, if not, click the link to create a new user and it will open in a new tab in your browser.
Next you can enter or change the Name that will appear on the profile.
Finally you can enter the Phone Number, Website, Company and Description for the user.

Managing Locations (Where the event will take place)

  • You can't create an event without first creating a Location. All events must have a location.
  • It is not a requrement that the location have a physical address  that the location have an address.
  • The description for the locaiton will be shown in the front end of the event details page. You can also add images for your description too.
  • As many events as you want, can use the same location.
  • The location URL will link to the location's website in a new window.
  • If you want to show the Google Map in the details page, then enter the address in the address field.

location manager

Adding a new location

Finding the Latitude and Longitude for a locaiton can be quite daunting. However, here is how you can do it quickly.

Open Google maps. (https://maps.google.com) and type in the location you need the co-ordinates for.

Eg:Queanbeyan Showground, Glebe Avenue, Queanbeyan NSW, Australia

Google will open the map, with the location. Somtimes there will be a marker already present on the map and other times not.

Right-Click on the locaiton you need and you will see a custom context menu. Select the "Whats Here?" item.

You will now see a little window show near the bottom of the screen. In it will be the Lat and Long that you need to enter in the Locaiton form.

Registration Manager King allows you to make your own customized registration forms.

You can choose create your own fields that you would like the registrant to complete out when registering for events during the checkout process.

You can use a single registration form using the group registration option for purchasing multiple tickets, and you can create a seperate form for each event, so if you go through checkout and select two different events, the user will get to different registraiton forms.

Creating the Registration Form

  1. As mentioned in the documentation, before you can create an event, you need to create a registration form that users can use to enter their details when registering for the event. The minimum you need to do here is to enter a Name and and unique ID for the form and then click Save.
  2. When you save it, it will appear in the list of available forms, unpublished.
  3. Click on the title of the form and it will open in Edit mode.
  4. Wehn new forms are reopened, the system will automatically add the 3 required fields (First Name, Last Name, Email). You should NOT remove these 3 fields. you should not UNPUBLISH them either. They are mandatory and must be in each registration form.
  5. You can only edit the titles of these three fields. You should change nothing else.
  6. Further down the page, you can enter a thank you message that will be shown to the user after registration is completed. If you enter nothing, then they will see the default mesage.
  7. It is possible to create as many forms as you need. Each of them can contain different field types and thanks pages.
  8. All the registrants will see this message after they complete the registration to an event that uses a particular registration form.

 

Creating Thank You Pages

Each thank you page can be customized to show information from the event and attendees.

Near the thanks page input field you can see custom tags which can be used in the thanks area to customize your thank you page.

So that each event can have it's own thank you page, this can be very handy.

The thanks page will be shown tothe attendees after they have finished the checkout process and registered for your event.
