Important Set-up Task #1: Timezones

JCal Pro will function quite well with no changes to the configuration. However, you will need to choose the timezone for your location:

  • In the Joomla admin area, select System > Global Configuration from the main menu.
  • On the Server tab, locate the "Locations Settings" section.
  • Using the "Server Time Zone", adjust the timezone offset to match your location.
  • Save your changes.

Important Set-up Task #2: Menu Link

In order to function correctly, JCal Pro must be published on the frontend of your web site. You must create a menu item for JCal Pro.

  • In the Joomla admin area, go to a Menu. For example, Menus > Main Menu:
  • Click New.
  • Click on the blue "Select" button.
  • Choose JCal Pro from the list of available menu types.
  • Choose your desired view. The "Monthly View" is a good option for this step.
  • Give your menu item a title, such as "Event Calendar".
  • Save your menu item as "Published".
  • JCal Pro is now enabled on your site's frontend:
