Front end content creation with JCE

While developing the front end developing functionality for the Registration Manager King component today, I came across a little problem that had me stumped for a little while.
In all my work, I use ONLY the JCE editor as I think it's the best and the developer of it gives support very quickly.
So, back to the problem. While I was documenting the front end content creation for events, I noticed that the description fields were only showing textareas. Weird, I confirmed that in the xml files for the fields, they were set as type Editor. So, a bit of googling only found a few little problems, but the problems were for all editors not showing in the front end.
In the end, what I found was that I needed to go to the JCE component in the admin area. Open the Profiles section, go to the Default Profile, Setup tab.   Here you can set the Groups. You need to set the creator group so that your creator can see the JCE editor and enter the description with formatting. 
I'm pretty sure I'll need to do the same thing with the Instructor and Organizer profiles too.

New Event Registration Manager King Component

Today we are preparing to release or new component.
We have based our new component on the Event Registration component from Joomla Showroom.
We decided to write this component as we have had many requests from clients in the past for this type of component.  We decided on this component to base ours as we knew it best.  in the past, we developed the JCal integration into the Event Registration component on behalf of one of our clients, Ron Greenspan, and we were approached by JoomlShowroom to integrade the payment plugins system into it too. We also then later added the group registration functionality into the component too. Each time, we handed the code over to the original developer so that they could introduce it into their codebase and so that our clients would get free ongoing support when they upgraded to later versions of this component.
Today, after 8 months of development, we are happy to announce that out Registration Manager King component is almost ready.
During our development, we came across many shortcomings of the original component and we have extended it.
The component will have Frontend content creation ability too.
The component will not be restricted to registering for events, but you can also use it as an eStore. All you need to do is to change the language file text from events to products and you're right to go.
As far as deliverable products, All we need to do is to add one more option, to the "product" details page named "shippable" and then update the registration form to ask for shipping address details.
And there you have it, an event registration component AND an eStore, all in one.
We are hoping for an end of October 2018 release date.  As we are going through the documentation and checking it, we are discovering some areas where the component lacks and adding them, like a customer dashboard, where they can link to their profile, orders, registration history etc.  We will initially be giving the component away for free whilst it is in beta testing stages.

Online Education Shows More Promise Among Students

Like every other walk of life, online education is also both matchlessly beneficial, yet a little challenging at the same time.

When the courses run with the matchless user-friendliness of learning management system, how hard learning to work with the technology could be? It’ll be a double advantage you should make the most of!  

Staying present – the responsibility of making the best of the course falls on you

The one beneficial restriction of the conventional classroom learning is that it made it necessary for you to be present. While it could be a little inconvenient at times, it always works matchless wonders when it comes to making sure that you’re getting what is served.
When it comes to online courses, the flexibility in the schedules is helpful in most cases, but it can sometime lead to a gap and lenience in the regularity and punctuality. Stick to your schedules, don’t let this happen, and you’ll be just fine. 

Time management – the talent that can amplify your e-learning benefits to multifold.

 When you get the provision of accessing the study material and take the classes at any time, it can lead us to a little mismanagement at times. E-learning allows you to take a schedule as per your convenience, but then it falls upon you to devise a convenient schedule and never fail to stick to it. All you need to do is manage the time of learning and practicing and our problem is solved!

Motivation – the ‘self’ gets some work to do here as well

With the online courses driven by the fabulous functionality of learning management system like Joomla and powered with the engaging interactions with discussions, Q and As, quizzes, and an amazing interface like the internet, staying interested and motivated isn’t that hard if you even try a little.

There’s no good that comes to us easy, but the challenges of the journey of learning are what make the results all the more enjoyable. So, now that we have become well aware of what challenges can come our way in our e-learning, there’s nothing that can keep you from taking the best advantage of your e-courses.
