Event Calendar Pro provides a feature rich solution for publishing event calendars. Once installed in your mojoPortal site, you can add instances of Event Calendar Pro to as many pages in your site as you like, so you can have multiple Calendars with different events. A nightclub or a band could use this feature to list their concerts and even sell tickets to concerts. You can use it for course or class registration by creating recurring events and specifying that the ticket includes the recurrences. For a guided tour of Event Calendar Pro, please see this demo/training video. You can also try it out yourself on our demo site Available licenses:  Single Installation License, Server License or Enterprise License.

You should get your site working before you buy the Event Calendar Pro Feature. For information on setting up a mojoPortal site, see mojoPortal Installation. If you need an older version of Event Calendar Pro, contact us.

After purchasing Event Calendar Pro, download the .zip file to your local machine and using an FTP Client like FileZilla, copy the contents of the wwwroot folder into the root folder of your mojoPortal web site. Then visit http://yoursiteroot/Setup/Default.aspx to complete the installation of Event Calendar Pro.

Ticket Sales Requires a PayPal account, or a Google Checkout account, or an Authorize.NET account as described in the documentation here:

In theory, this feature should also work with mojoPortal running on Linux with Mono, however, it has not yet been tested or verified.
