One of my customers of my full-time job needed a specific module that would allow him to track the number of submissions for an important petition he started in Switzerland. His site is using the excellent ChronoForms tool, but a quick glance at Google didn't show up anything specific to the task, so I decided to help him out by writing a custom module that counts the records submitted so far, along with a target value they are trying to reach. I went a little bit further than that and enabled, along with the "simple" counter view, also a Progess Bar view that visualizes the progress made by his petition with respect to the goal they set.
PS: Work on SimpleCalendar 3.1 is going forward and I'm currently testing Joomla 3.5 compatibility in different PHP versions. Will take some more time, time that I hadn't anticipated, but I'm confident we're not far off.
SimpleCalendar 3.1.0 has been in the works for some time now, but - as most of you are aware - it is not an easy job to maintain a balance between work, family, hobbies and sport, so it got behind schedule fairly often. In the last months we tried to work on it more, but still not at an acceptable rate. It will be this way for the upcoming months as well, but we set our goal on working at least periodically in order to bring it up to the next level.
Today we release the Module and the Countdown module for 3.1.0. Both are fully compatible with your current version of SimpleCalendar (3.0.10 or 3.0.11).
SimpleCalendar 3.1.0 will be released in the upcoming weeks, while we work on full compatibility with the latest Joomla version as well as some rather heavy bugsfixing. Thanks for your loyalty and keep visiting this page or the support forum for the latest information about the release.
It's christmas time and here at SimpleCalendar HQ we are working hard towards a release of the next version. It won't be long, hopefully, until the new version sees the light, we are trying to squash out as much bugs as possible and provide you with a solution you can work with.
