JEvents 1.5 (No longer actively supported)

Making a new template

JEvents 2.0 was launched over 2 years ago and the latest stable version is version 2.2 which will run on Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 2.5. JEvents 1.5 is therefore no longer actively supported - you should upgrade to JEvents 2.2+ as soon as possible.
Forum rules
Please include as much detail in any test or bug reports for JEvents 1.5 as possible.

First of all, check if you are running the latest available version of Joomla! and JEvents. Posts for issues, where both systems are not updated, will be ignored.

We need the following at least:

* PHP version (e.g. 5.2.5). Note: Support for PHP4 is discontinued.
* Joomla! version
* JEvents version
* Web Server software (Apache or IIS with version number if possible)
* Server Operating system (e.g. Linux, Windows, Solaris, Darwin ...)
* Database version
* memory_limit from your phpinfo
* Web browser and version

Please enable error reporting and include any error messages in your posting. You do this via the Joomla Configuration - set "error reporting" to "maximum" on the Server tab.

Finally, please describe the steps required to recreate the problem and also please enable error reporting and give us any error messages generated.

Hi all,

Im having great difficulty trying to make a new template in the \components\com_jevents\views\ folder.

I thought it would be as simple as to copy the default or the geraint template and then just adjusting some of the css and images in those folders but the names default and geraint get used a lot in the php-files.

So i tried to adjust the php files, but there's just too many adjustements to be made before an entire template works again.

I must be doing something wrong?

Ive searched the internet and youre pages but all I could find was http://www.jevents.net/en/jevents-15-topmenu-17/43-customising-layouts-in-jevents-15 which just tells me how to adjust layouts. Which is not the problem.

Al I want is to see a template with the specific name of my company in the jevents settings in Joomla.

Any help is appreciated.

Then start from the layout you want (apart from default) e.g. geraint.

Copy the whole geraint folder to newname folder then do a search and replace for "geraint" and replace with "newname" - make sure you match the case.

Remember that you can't remove any copyright or license statements from the files you copy.

Hi Geraint!

I´ve done that with your template using the current the version 2.2.0 of JEvents; but now "latest" module asks me to "reinstall" template; so does that mean that your proposed and simple way is no longer possible?

Hi bernd - the modules expect to use the same layout. So repeat the same exercise copying and renaming folders/files in the latest events and minicalendar module fodler.
