RSEvents!Pro Version 1.8.0 Released!

in RSEvents!Pro on 31 Mar 2015 having 2 comments

RSEvents!Pro Ver. 1.8.0 is up and running! If a more mobile-friendly frontend layout, the backup / restore feature or the possibility to search for events nearby your location won't get your attention, then nothing will.

Increased Accessibility From Portable Devices

Some parts of the extension's frontend area have been adjusted to make use of the Bootstrap framework, making your website far more accessible from mobile devices. This has been implemented for frontend search filters:

and the Calendar menu item.

Keep Your Data Safe Or Migrate It

We've introduced a brand new feature that you'll probably thank us for: Backup / Restore. With it you can generate backup ZIP files containing all of the RSEvents!Pro information (minus event images and files) that will provide a great deal of help when either saving your information or migrating it:

All of these backups will get saved on the server and can be loaded directly from the Backup tab, but you can also save them on a local drive for safe keeping and to save up some server space.

Search For Events Near You

The Events map menu item got quite a handy improvement: website visitors will get prompted, by their browser, to allow being geolocated, in which case the Google map will display all of the events that take place within a provided radius around their location:

More Configuration Options

"Less is more", says popular wisdom. While this does apply in so many situations in life, it doesn't really work when it comes to the number of options for customizing your beloved events-oriented online business. In this case, the phrase "The more, the merrier" should definitely be closer to the truth.

In this respect, the Calendar menu item now allows setting a start year and month, and you can remove the seconds from the Javascript calendars if doing so better suits your needs.

RSEvento! users will need to also update the template, as multiple changes have been made for RSEvents!Pro's frontend layout.

Great Stuff, How Do I Get It?

Well, if you have an active RSEvents!Pro license, all you need to do is update the component.

If you have a license, but it's expired, you need to first renew it with a 30% discount.

Alas, if you're new to RSEvents!Pro, you'll need to purchase a brand-new license. You can do so by clicking on the BUY NOW! button found at the bottom of this post.

...So you decided to ignore general best practices and updated your live installation before actually testing this on a dev installation.

I can assure you that the extension was properly tested. Unlike other developers, our customers are not beta testers.

The fact that you are facing such issues can be generated by a bunch of reasons, not necessarily faulty source code.

What you need to do next:

  • roll back your installation to a previous version (given that you have a backup)

  • create a test installation and apply the update

  • submit a support ticket where our staff members can analyze this and provide assistance.

RS Evento PRO 1.8 Does not work properly in my site

Dear sirs,

i updated (unfortunately) RS EVENTS PRO to the new version and then i update manually all modules.
I face the following serious problems:
First of all:
The thumbnails of events posters do not appear in the listing at all. of course i dont like this way.
secondly,the slider images does not also appear in the module.
thirdly, the calendar does not appear AT ALL. please, reply promptly because my web site is getting destroyed and i have problem with my clients. if you can not solve this immediately please send the previous version and the old modules.

Take into seriously consideration that you should check any update before you dispose it to your clients!!!!!!!
