I am using Event Calendar module on DNN 5.6 but I am upgrading my site to DNN 6 and wanted to confirm if I can still use this module on DNN 6 without any trouble?
A: Hi Nidhi,
ECR v5.0.5 will work on DNN6.x. You need to upgrade in order to work on the DNN 6.x platform.
Q: is this module DNN 6.x compatible?
Please refer to our new version v5.0 instead.
Q: Is this compatible with DNN 5.6.0?
A: Yes, the latest 4.0.6 was specially made for DNN 5.6. It is a free upgrade for all 4.x users.
Q: Is the module SEO friendly? I am using the DNN events but it is not SEO friendly.
A: Yes, it is.
im interested to buy this product, but i have a conceren. I live in Saudi Arabia. and there is no online payment gateway to support Saudi arabian banks. so i have to go for local bank payment gateway integration. how can you help in this regard.
Yes, all the available payment gateway integration we have customized for our users (at a small cost), and we can do the same for you. :). Thank you.
Q: I bought the Event Calaendar module recently and just realized I bought the wrong one. I needed the registration piece as well. What's the best way to add that? Thanks.
A: Sure, you can upgrade from Snowcovered.com. thanks.
Q: I got some warnings when installing the demo version of Event Calendar and Registration 4.0. I am running on DotNetNuke 05.06.00 (459).
The module installed correctly and seems to be working
Will this be a problem when purchasing the enterprise version?
A: It should not be any problem. the latest v4.0.6 is designed for DNN 5.1 and above.
Q: Can I define different Categories and Locations at the Module level rather than the Portal level? I need to have very different Categories and Locations for each different Events module on the same portal.
A: Yes, you can choose not to share the categories with other modules on the same portal.
Q: We have a site with a very extensive default calendar of events. When switching to this calendar, can the current events be brought into this calendar automatically or through some routine?
A: Yes, you can import from default DNN Events module.
Q: A few Questions...
1. does your module support wait lists when event is at maximum capacity?
2. Is there a history of events and registrants that can be exported?
3. Do you have min and max capacity settings?
thanks in advance
A: Hi, 1, No wait list for now.
2, yes, under Registration Manager.
3, There is a max capacity, but no min capacity.
Q: Is it possible to set different permission to each category.
A category was permitted some user(or user role).
other categories are permitted all user.
Q: Hi the satellite module is having a strange behavior:
1. When the site gets updated (i.e. content gets added to the page) the “Items” Template of the satellite gets “Deleted” and no events are shown
Do you have any idea why is this happening? Any suggestions? I have had to add the template at leat 5 times already. You can view the site at bexarmet.org satellite is on home page it should be displaying events now I just added the template.
Which version are you running?
Are there any error log from Admin >> Event Viewer?
The module is not supposed to delete the template by itself. Also, please use online forum to follow up on technical support. :)
I'm tester of Event Calendar and Registration 4.0.
(this is my test url: http://www.gcsaram.com/portal/%ED%96%89%EC%82%AC%EC%95%88%EB%82%B4.aspx)
I need functionality.
I have added 6 categories.
it it possible when sub menu selected related specific category, category's event view(monthly view) display?
like this: http://screencast.com/t/GFvFcbEN1
A: It will do that automatically.
However, you have a way to walkaround. The Calendar can accept page parameter: "cat", for example: http://www.abc.com/default.aspx?cat=3, so in your menu, you can have the redirection to the page with specific category id.
Q: I bought one standard license for one of my site on Event Cal and Reg 4.0... do I qualify for any discount on buying a second standard license? I want to use it on another portal too.
Thanks, Rob H.
A: Yes, you can refer to the upgrade policy at www.invenmanager.com. :)
Q: Is the 4.0 version of Event Calendar compatible with DNN. 5.5?
A: Yes. The latest is v4.0.6, (Free upgrade to all v4.0 users)
Q: Hi I would like to setup your satelite calendar with a kayak booking site. All I need is 5 individual satelite calendars and when I select the date it takes me directly to payment system and information. Can I show each sub calendar on a separate page and do this, eg Day trips, Sunset tours, river paddles. I am after something similar to http://www.godo.com.au/activity/KANO100?ondate=2010-11-13&toprice=0&bembed=false&todate=®ion_id=1033&categoryid=0&fromprice=0&fromdate=2010-11-01&state_id=5&subcategoryid=0
A: Hi, I am afraid it does not do that out of the box...
Q: Can this module be used for booking homes or rooms like a hotel? I need to build a house rental website and allow people to book a property for a day or multiple days with pricing that can be changed for multiple booking days.
A: I am afraid it is not suitable for room bookings.
Q: Would I be able to shrunk the calendar to fit in smaller pane? Most calendar look good on content pane, but I want some on the smaller pane (ex: right pane or left pane). Also, be able to click on or mouse over to show the event in blow up screen or event page. Thanks!
The calendar display size can be changed with CSS, it is fully depending on CSS you used.
Q: Hi, I am testing the trial before purchasing. The emails aren't being sent out -- is this only for licensed versions? Also, when I click "offline payment" the users aren't being shown in the "Registration Manager". Does this also only work in the registered version? Is there a way to make the Event Title non clickable? Is there a helper mod that can be displayed on the page that I can choose an image and take them right to the registration page? Thanks.
Trial version comes with full functionality. Please check your Admin >> Event Viewer, any error on email sending? Also go to Manage Email Notifications, see if you have email templates configured.
No, the registration manager event title is always clickable. Any reason you don't want it to be clicable.? Please follow up at invenmanager.com forum. Thank you.
Q: I currently have v03.00.03, can I upgrade to 4.0 without data loss and what is the upgrade price?
Sure, you can upgrade to v4.0, no data loss. You can upgrade to v3.1 first for free before you upgrade to v4.0. (with up to 50~80% discounts)
Q: Can you please tell me when the 5.5.1 version will be ready?
We are now revamping the module and should have the new version v5.0 ready by end of November. but it is not 5.5.1.
Q: We have a client with version 3.1 installed and they have been using it for several months. Is there a simple process to upgrade to version 4.0 on a production/live site without losing any existing data? Can you send me upgrade instructions?
You can upgrade to v4.0 from v3.1 without losing any data. Thanks.
Q: Quick question.
We're looking at modules/solutions to allow multiple users to add events to a calendar (they would only be able to edit events they had entered).
Would you module accomplish this? Can we disable the registration feature?
A: Yes. Can.
Q: Is this mod stable with DNN 5.5?
We have a new release of v4.0.4 works with v5.5. it should be ready in a fe days. Thanks.
Q: Is your calendar compatible with DNN version 5.5.0?
We have a free upgrade release of v4.0.4 should be available in a few days. it fully supports DNN 5.5.. for v4.0.3 it is not fully tested on 5.5 yet.
Q: I have a couple pre-sale questions. 1) Do the unlimited custom fields apply on an event by event basis. I have events that have completely different information that is required to be collected and I need the flexibility to customize those fields on an event by event basis. 2) Does the system allow the ability to send notification to multiple email addresses on a per event basis when someone registers for an event? Thanks in advance.
A: Hi, 1), The custom fields are not linked to per event basis. Rather, it is linked to per Module basis. All you need to do is to have different modules added to your portal, each module for one type of events (having same custom fields).
Q: Hi, I'm looking at purchasing this module again for a client. I'm confused by what the following means. - Event Calendar & Registration - Standard License (Not for multi IP address Environment)
Does this mean that only one computer IP address is allowed to make updates, or can multiple computers make updates to the modules as long as it is on one IP server install. If you could provide a little more insight to the difference between the $300+ license and the regular standard license so I can pass the news on to the client.
A: Hi, Standard Edition is for one single DNN install only, and it does not work in Load Balancing/Clustering/Multiple IP address on the web server environment. (Having different IP for different portals in same DNN install).
Whereas Enterprise edition allows multiple install. and support ALL environments. :)
Q: Hi there,
Please answer each question seperatly:
(1) is it possible to change the fields in the room registration form?
(2) Can you extend it to include the following search form fields: date from, date to?
(3) Can you just make it limited 1 booking? Cause we are not booking events, but a tour guide in a given state. So if there is only 1 tour guide for that state, once his time is booked for a week, that week should not be bookable again. Will it handle this?
(4) Can we switch to Facility Booking view mode to display what days are booked? If not, how do you present this to the user?
My purpose is to use this module to book not ROOMS but PEOPLE(tour guides) in different States, who each have scheduled availability during the week, and their time can be purchased based on a travel package the user selects. Can you accommodate this? If not, what will it cost to have it developed?
2), you can use the Events Calendar Search module, and it provides many searching criteria.
4), You can link it with Facility Booking. but the FB module does not show booking status of your events.
Q: I want to be able to display the names of people already registered on the event detail page. Is that possible?
A: Yes. you can use Tokens to do so. Please refer to the Tokens reference.
Q: I want to use this module to allow club members to book tennis courts. I will have an event set up for each time slot, and there will be 3 places available as we have 3 courts. The booking will be 'released' at a given time, and we anticipate a lot of people trying to book at the same time. We are charging for the bookings as well through PayPal, and I wanted to to understand at what point the booking shows up as 'complete'. Is it when they go off to PayPal, or when the PayPal transaction is completed? If it is the latter, I am concerned that people will think they have a court booked, but somebody else may complete the PayPal transaction before them.
Is it when they go off to PayPal.
I've two questions please:
- Do you have a trial version I can test?
- When you say not multi-IP for the standard version, does this mean I won't be able to access it at work and then at home? I'd be hosting it on my web server and accessing the portal from various locations.
1. Trial version is available at Invenmanager.com.
2. Multi-IP means server has multiple IP addresses. such as load balancing environment.
It does not mean client IP address, so you can access from anywhere on any computer if it is installed.
Q: I am looking for a calendar module that will support Sub-Calendars from other portals (same DNN install). Is that supported, and if not how much would you charge to add that feature?
Currently you can only share in the same DNN portal. it cannot share across different portals.
Q: Hello, i purchased your module about a month ago and love it! i have a quick question for you. Is there any way to display the category in the url and category ID. I create a bunch of groups and what to pass a category ID in the url so when they get to the calendar page it filters down to just those events. like /Events/tabid/108/vw/category/3/Default.aspx
A: Yes, the parameter is "cat". For example:
Q: I recently ran skipfish a security scanning utility, against an application that was using your events module, one of the findings of the scan was an integer overflow vector attack that was successful. Skipfish claims this is a high priority vulnerability, my understanding is a little different. The overflow is caught and handled an exception is returned, the biggest problem is that it's not a generic error returned, but rather explicit about the problem that has occurred. We typically like our returned exceptions to be generic so as not to tip off those trying to attack the system. A sample attack URL is as follows
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance, and any guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
As you mentioned, the error would be captured, logged, and returned to the normal page and displayed with the error message. Actually the process was done automatically by DotnetNuke error handling engine.
Yes, we need to prevent such attackers, but I believe whether display the error message or not do not make much difference in this concept. You have helped us a lot by highlighting such security threats, and we will consider seriously to enhance the application. For further discussion, please post it at Invenmanager.com forum. Thank you.
Q: Do you have a license or discount that would allow me to use your module on 10-12 websites?
Yes, you can get Enterprise Edition, it allows you to activate up to 20 DNN installs. Thanks.
Q: I have purchased a copy of 3.1 ECR
do any of the added payment gateways in 3.1 support british pounds (£). all i can see is sweden, US, canada, Euro.
Are there additional payment gateways available in the 4.0 version and if so do they support GBP (£)
A: Hi, PayPal can support GBP. thanks.
Q: I own a few domain names like www.SkylineDriveCorvettes.Org, www.FastVette.Net, www.CorvetteNation.org
I would like SkylineDrive Corvettes to be an individual calendar, FastVette.Net to be an individual calendar, and CorvetteNation.Org to be a 'master' calendar that will include all "public" items from the sub-calendars. The current problem is that Corvette clubs have events for members-only, as well as events that non-members may participate in. The sub-calendars need a checkbox to "publish on other websites" for the public events.
ALL three of these domains are Parent Portals in the same DNN SQL database.... and the 'master' needs to include all 'public' listings in date order.
A: Hi, currently the module v4.0 does not cater to cross portal sharing of calendars.
It supports sub-calendars within the same portal though.
For your case, you may want to have a IFrame to display calendars page from another website.
Q: i have a link on my homepage to certain hot items going on in my site. one such item is an event i have set up in the calandar.
how can i link to a detailed informative view of the event i set up in the calandar?
i would not liek to send users to the main calandar as they would see all events and not the one i want to highlight. i want them going directly to a detailed view of the exact event and see all its details.
You can use the Satellite Module to display such data, take a look at this site and see how Alden used such modules to link to the main calendar details:
Q: I messed up and purchased the Standard and meant to buy the enterprise. How do I accomplish this upgrade? Do I need to return the standard? Sorry!
4531 Newbury Drive
Vermilion OH 44089
You can upgrade to Enterprise Edition now. And currently you enjoy 15% special discount on top of the normal discount, so in the end, you pay so much lesser compared to you buy Enterprise Edition at full price.
Q: We are a sales training company. We offer public seminars and have been using other online scheduling tools. Is there a way for a manager of one of our client companies to register four people for an event and pay for all four people in a single transactions and then provide them a place to enter each person's name? This is a huge need we have.
In addition, if we are using this module on multiple sites we own on the same server which version do we need to purchase?
1. yes, it supports registration with multiple attendees and you can enter detail for each attendee.
2. The standard edition supports one DNN Install only. Please refer to www.invenmanager.com for more detail on licensing.
Q: We need to use Intuit merchant services as our gateway. That is not currently an option in your system. If we get the source code version of your module, will we be able to add that? We have the SDK. Or is that something you may be adding in the near future?
Yes, with source codes you can customize it with other payment gateway.
Or we can customize it for you at $350 only. Thanks.
Q: Trying to woo a non-profit away from Evite and towards using their DNN site for event registration. But they are used to Evites' one-click. Using DNN Core Event module + email notification, they had to click link in email, log in to DNN site, go to Event page, register. 95% didn't do it. 'Too many clicks' they said.
Using Invenmanager, whats the shortest path/least clicks to registering? [They will not log in. Evite assumes the sender verified them when the email list was created. Cant I do that in DNN?]
One click they can register.
Our module allows anonymous registration. but they have to fill in their details.
We will add the Invitation feature soon.
Q: How much it would cost to upgrade from the standard version ($69) to the ($139) version that supports registration of events at a later time?
The upgrade policy can be found here:
Q: I don't understand your licensing. We are purchasing this module for a client of ours. It will be in a dev environment and then moved to a production server, where the client will then start updating it. Can we purchase the $139 module "Event Calendar & Registration - Standard License (Not for multi IP address Environment)"? I'm not sure what this license means. Would we be better off with version 3?
The licensing is same for v4.0 and 3.x. As for Standard Edition, it only allows you to activate on production site. It allows unlimited dev environment on localhost which does not require activation of license.
If you need to activate on more than one environment, you need enterprise edition or multiple licenses. Thanks.
Q: What is your latest version? I am currently running 3.0 - what has been changed since then? What is your upgrade path and process?
A: 1. Latest is v4.0.
2. Many items have been changed since them. Please refer to invenmanager.com for more detail.
3. The upgrade policy can be found here:
Q: Looking for a module that will allow people to reserve spots on city tours. Users may wish to buy more than one spot at a time. Can you configure the number of reservations somebody is paying for?
A: Hi, I am sure you can configure the module so that users pay online for the event.
I am not sure about your last sentence: "configure the number of reservations somebody is paying for"?
Please follow up at Invenmanager User forum at invenmanager.com, so that someone will answer your question quickly.
Q: How do I get the discount? I purchased the 3.1 version, however when I add the version 4 to the cart it shows the full price.
The discount is automatically added as you can see the discounts are specified under the product page, and invenmanager.com as well.
You don't see the discount is probably because you login as a different user.?
Q: Does this module allow a user to be added to a role after purchase or registration for an event?
Q: I just purchased a copy of your Events 3.1 module a month or so ago for one of my clients and I'm in the process of getting it configured for them when I noticed you have a new version out. I presume you provide free upgrades to new clients for 12 months after purchase as is becoming the standard throughout the DNN module community. We haven't even launched their site yet and so I'm confident they're not going to be willing to spend more money on an update to a product they just purchased and haven't gotten online yet.
We never stated that we provide 12 month free upgrade. Please read carefully before you purchase, we do provide free upgrade for minor versions, and provide huge discounts for major version upgrades. But it maybe within 12 month, or outside 12 month.
Please provide your invoice number to support @ invenmanager.com. Thanks.
Q: Do you support the notion of configuring events to fall off the calendar after the event has passed?
A: Sorry, I am not sure if I understand you correctly on this. Please explain in more layman term.
Q: I assume that the registration info you require them to fill out is configurable, is that correct? For instance we'd need to add fields for College, GPA, graduation date, etc. Also can you add radio buttons and drop down lists?
A: Yes, you can use Custom Properties to do that...
