Hi, I have a Joomla 2.5 based site that uses Jomsocial and I am looking for a calendar capable of integrating with it.
I've seen JEvents has a Jomsocial integration plugin, but I need to know more about the current integration mechanisms:
- are the event categories kept in synch automatically or do I have to synch them manually ?
- is the event management bidirectional ? I mean, is it possible to create an event within Jomsocial and have it appear in the calendar and, viceversa, create an event in the calendar and have it appear within Jomsocial ?

Moreover, is there an italian language file (frontend is enough) available ?

Thanks
Luciano

You can import JomSocial events into JEvents and keep these up to date by reimporting regularly automatically. this will auto create JEvents categories to match your JomSocial categories. The event details in Jevents can be configured to auto-redirect back to the JomSocial event detail view.

It is not possible to push events from JEvents into Jomsocial - most people will stick to creating events within JomSocial if this is the type of integration you need.

Ok, thanks, and what about the categories ?
Are they kept in synch ?
I would expect a similar behaviour i.e the categories created in Jomsocial are copied into JEvents, is that the way it works ?
I also expect other categories can be created in JEvents in addition to the Jomsocial based.
Thanks

JomSocial categories (with events) would be created in JEvents but NOT removed if they are removed from JomSocial.
