The Joomla events & calendar extension DJ-Events 1.2 update is here. We've added the new feature and fixed a few bugs.
Now, you will find a new button in the single event configuration: "Online event". You can enable this option and change the event's location to the virtual (online).
This feature works both for new and existing events.
Below, you can see the example of the event with the "Online event" button set as disabled (this means that is the regular event with a venue).
Marking an event as an "online event" means that location data will be not required to be filled.
It will work the same way on the front page - the location's information will disappear and only "Online Event" information will be displayed there.
This information will be also visible on the event's thumbnail on the Events listing view.
And in the Items module.
That is not all. When searching for events, instead of choosing one of the locations in the "where?" field, you can select an online event (marked as !Online event). Search results will display only virtual events.
Below you can see the list of fixed bugs for this update:
