Hello,

First of all, have you install the JEvents Language packs? These control the output time format.

Also, then when you switch in the front end of Joomla! JEvents will be changed also as our language packs are used by Joomla!.

If your menu disappears when you go to the events page then you need to set your menu to appear on all pages not just those selected.

Regards
tony

Language packs? Could you please point me to them? I only see translationpacks for the older versions but no translationpack or languagepack for version 3.0 on your downloadpage, as far as I can see.

Regarding the menu : Big oops. (but in my own defence, I did mention I hadn't looked into it yet and indeed, I created a new "Events" page, to replace the current "Diary" page and didn't link it to the correct language menu yet)

Language packs are Translation Packs.

You can use Joomla! 2.5 versions for 3.0

Cheers, this did work, and as a result I also realised that I should set the component date to the languagefile, and then I could leave entering the date to Ymd. How I enter the date doesn't matter that much to me.

Now perhaps a Joomla 101 question:
Is there a way to have multi lingual texts? As the event information I supply is only about the location, I luckily do not need to double most info. However, sometimes a show is sold out. Then I want to have "[ UITVERKOCHT! ]" in the Dutch (main) language to show, but to have "[ SOLD OUT! ]" in the English (alternative) language. Is there a way to do so?

Hello Marque,

Glad to hear.

Yes there is by using Joomfish, it's another component by another developer. Just google it :).

... of which there is no Joomla 3.0 version.

I was thinking of using some CSS hack to change text or even an image, but I see no way of adding a CSS div to the "extra info" box.

Have you tried putting a div in the box it's self?

I solved it by hacking the source a bit. I added a function in Downloadedfromtemplate.php to automatically translate the most used frases ("Sold out", "Doors open", "Tel.", etc). For all other texts, I added the {text-en}..{/text-en} and {text-nl}..{/text-nl} pairs. This function is called on nearly each "Replace" assignment. Only thing that I still have to trace is the assignment of the HTML->HEAD page-title, which now shows "35{text-nl}e{/text-nl}{text-en}th{/text-en} Country Festival" in stead of the converted text. With these hacks it looks like I found a good tool in jEvents.

Even though they are simple php-hacks, let me know if you would like to receive my hacks.

In JEvents 3.0 you can create different layouts for each language - so you could have language specific labels etc without the need to hack the code
JEvents Club members can get priority forum support at the Support Forum. As well as access to a variety of custom JEvents addons and benefits. Join the JEvents club today!

I found I needed a bit more than that.

Some of the things I came accross included "Sold Out: Therefor an extra matinee performace will be held on the 24th". I don't see this happening with just generic labels.

And I'm just setting up their site, and will not be maintaining it, certainly not regarding content, thus it must be something I can teach them to do easily. {text-??} seemed the best solution.

Everyting else on the site is just content and they just have to enter either an English article to the English catagories or a Dutch article to any of the Dutch categories. For now, this is the only thing they enter once for both languages.
