You will need to download your preferred addon modules and plugins you wish to use and install those separately. This will allow you to only install what you need without adding extra stuff to your site that you do not need.

 EVENT HANDLING TAB

There are 7 parameters in this section.

  • Handle expired events By: Select how you want to handle your expired events. Events that have passed will be unpublished and archived to the Archive Manager and stored there. You can choose the archive to be triggered via the Start date or the End date.
  • Handle expired events: This setting will determine how your events are archived. Events can automatically be archived (recommended), or they can automatically be deleted. You can also choose to do nothing if you would like to have all of your events never be archived. This is good if you are only using the calendar to display your events but if using the listing of events then it can get a bit over crowded.
  • Number of days: This setting is for determining the amount of days after the start or end date that you would like to have the events archived. NOTE: If the event has repeating child events, in this case events will only be unpublished until the final child event has taken place and then the entire series of events will be archived in one batch.
  • Disable event reminder notifications: If you wish to disable all event reminder emails from being sent you can set this to "No"
  • Enable Event moderation: Setting this to "Yes" will enable front end event creation moderation. Whenever a new event is submitted from the front end the moderator email address will be sent a custom moderator email notification that there is an event submission they need to look at and publish.
  • Moderator email address: When event moderation is enabled, any emails entered here will get a notification regarding submitted events. In the email templates section there is a moderator email template that can be customized for this function. Multiple email addresses entered into this field must be separated by a comma with no spaces between them.
    Example: [email protected],[email protected],[email protected]
  • Enable PDF receipt with email: Every time someone registers to an event they will receive a confirmation email with a PDF receipt attached. If you do not want to include that attachment you can disable it with this setting.

When you click on the link to select the users list keep in mind that this list will only show users that are not blocked from accessing the website.

NOTICE!!!!!!!

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 absolute bare bone first steps you need to take.

BEFORE YOU CREATE AN EVENT!

1.     Create a category 

2.     Create a location 

3.     Create a registration form

4.     Publish a payment plugin 

Now you can go and create an event. Every event will require all of the above things be done in order to 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 Categories

Registration Manager King can handle multiple categories. Every event needs to be assigned to a respective category.

You can publish or unpublish the event categories. If a category does not contain any events it will not show up in the front end Accordion Category View and be automatically hidden. An empty category will not be hidden from the Category Grid View if it is empty.

category manager


Adding Colors to Categories

You can choose a custom color for the category by using the color picker. If you select a dark color for your category color then we have another color selector that you can use to selct the color of the text that is displayed over the background color.

Whatever color you choose for your category 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 (Event Venue)

  • Before you can create an event, you must first create a location. Each event must have a location.
  • It is not mandatory that the location have an address.
  • The location description will show up on the front end of the event details page. You can add images to your location description if you wish.
  • You may use the same location for as many events as you wish.
  • The location URL will link to the location's website in a new window.
  • The address will be used for the Google Map in the event details screen on the front end.

Registration Manager King allows custom registration forms.

You can choose which fields you would like the registrant to fill out when registering for events.

A single registration form can be used for multiple events or you can create one unique registration form to only be used for a single event.

 

editform

Creating A Registration Form

  1. Before you can create an event, you must first create a 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. Once you save it you will see it in the list of available forms in an unpublished state.
  3. Click on the name of the form and your newly created form will open in Edit mode.
  4. You will see 3 form fields that are automatically created (First Name, Last Name, Email). These 3 fields CANNOT be deleted or unpublished. These 3 fields are an integral part of how the system works and are mandatory fields.
  5. These 3 fields can only be edited as as far as the name of the Title that shows up in the front end but nothing else.
  6. You will see a thank you text area where you can add a thank you message for your registrants once registration is complete.
  7. You can have as many unique forms as you want,  and all of them can have different thank you pages.
  8. All the registrants will see this message after they complete the registration to an event that uses a particular registration form.

 

Thank You Pages

The thank you pages can be customized to show data from your events and registrants.

Below the thank you page text editor you will see custom tags that can be used to customize your thank you pages.

This is especially useful since each registration form thank you page can be used for multiple events.

The thank you page is what your registrants will see after they have successfully registered to your event.

  1. Enable registration: Enable Registrations lets you allow registrations. If this setting is disabled then your events will be displayed only and people will not be shown any registration options.
  2. Notify emails: The Notify Emails field will allow you to enter multiple email addresses that you wish to be notified when someone registers for this particular event. So if you need someone special to be notified when someone registers for this event only then you would enter their email addresses here. Email addresses should be separated by a comma.
  3. Notify Registered users before: Remind your registered users of your event on a certain number of days prior to your event start date. This will automatically send out an email reminding your registrants about your event.
  4. Select registration form: Select the custom registration form that you had created earlier that this event will use to collect data from your registrants.
  5. Event Registration starts/end dates and start/end times: Choose the dates and times that your registrations will start and end on. Keep in mind this is based off your physical server location time zone and adjusted by your global configuration time zone settings offset.
  6. Create Joomla user Account: If this setting is set to "yes" then a Joomla user account will be created at the same time a person registers for an event. If an email account already exists and matches the email entered into the event registration form then no new account will be created since a Joomla user account already exists.

 

Tickets

Creating Event Tickets

Here you will set up how much you will charge for your event. If event is a free event, then there is not any need to even create any tickets.

To set up a cost, fill in the name of your event ticket and then type in the amount you will charge, and then a description.

If your organization needs to charge tax for a certain ticket item you can enter the tax percentage here.

The QTY field will allow only a certain amount of these tickets to be sold. So in this example there will only be 20 tickets available for this ticket choice. So if someone chose to register 10 people using this ticket choice, then when someone else goes to select this ticket, it will show a remaining 10 tickets available to the next person. Once all the available qty have been purchased for this ticket, it will be removed from the available ticket choices in the front end.

After completing the fields, Click the “add” link just below the description box

You can go back and remove a ticket entirely or simply edit each ticket if needed to change a description or price. You can also sort the order of each ticket if your event has multiple ticket choices.

You can have multiple payment amounts to choose for one event. For instance, you can have an all day conference and list different payment options as in the example below:

(Crude example but I think you get the point)

Conference Registration (Members Only): $100.00

Conference Registration (Non-Members): $120.00

Your registrants can choose which options and the quantity of people that they want to register for the event.

All event ticket choices will create a registration form for each number of choices your registrant selects.
