JONGman Screen Shot



JONGman is a native Joomla! 1.5 extensions based on popular GPL reservation system called PHPScheduleIt. The component brings 80% of PHPScheduleIt features to Joomla! users. The design concept of Jongman schedule is that we can group similar resources to one group of resources e.g. time span, start time and end time of reservation in each day, number of day to show. Then this schedule is mapped to one menu items. Thus with JONGman you can create many menu items one for each schedule.

JONGman 2.0, the native Joomla! 1.7/2.5 native component is still in alpha stage of development. The code was re-write to be 100% Joomla! compatible and utilize most classes and API provided by Joomla! CMS.
