DT Register FAQs
Frequent asked questions about DT Joomla Register extension
DT Register works with all current versions of Joomla from 1.5 all the way through the current 3.x and everything in between! While we do still have a version available for Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 versions, we no longer support them.
Yes! PayPal Standard and some other gateways come with the component, then other gateways are available via add-on plugins. You have the option of using Authorize.net, PayPal (Standard), PayPal Pro (Website Payments Pro), Stripe, Sage (N. America), USA ePay, TransFirst, eWay, Saferpay, iDeal, Quickbooks Merchant Services (QBMS), PayFast (S. Africa), Korta (Europe), Sofort, Moneris (Canada), NetDeposit, Pay Later, Offline Manual Credit Card or all of the above. Our "Pay Later" option is for offlines payments of various types, but the offline credit card payment allows you to collect credit card info, encrypt it for security, but then process it manually offline. With Authorize.net and USA ePay, you can also use ECheck if your auth.net account has this feature enabled. Your payment options are setup globally, but you can also specify different payment options per event if desired. This means you could use PayPal account A for one event, and then use PayPal account B for another event... for example.
See the DT Register page on our site for full details and the latest payment gateway offerings.
YES! You can select if you want to use the integration or not. If you do, then registration forms will auto-populate with user's Community Builder or JomSocial profile info when they are logged in. Any DT Register field can be syned with any CB or JS field. DT Register works with all current versions of CB and JS.
YES! You can setup a variety of repeating events. All repeats are stand-alone events that can be registered for directly, as opposed to one registration that covers all of the repeat occurrences. NOTE: If you choose to sync with JEvents, you can NOT sync with repeating events from JEvents.
Yes, you can create categories and then assign your events to a category. On the frontend, the events can be listed according to category and there is also a filter to show only the events of a selected category. In the backend, you can re-order how your categories display. Events can be assigned to multiple categories if desired, and you can have multiple category tiers.
YES! DT Register integrates with Falang, which is a 2.5/3.x fork of Joom!Fish. Content elements files needed for both extensions are included in the DT Register package.
YES! There is a frontend panel where users can view their history, then edit/cancel records based on settings by the admin. They can also make additional payments if there is any amount due. Refunds can optionally be calculated as well. Use of this frontend User Panel does require that your registrants login so we recommend setting events as "private" so users have to login first OR using our "Auto User Creation" feature so users can create a login account at the same time as registering for your event!
Yes! You can designate an event as either public or private. All users will see the events in the list, but if the event is private, only logged in users will be able to access the registration form. A customizable message is shown to public users to notify them of the private status of the event. As an alternative, you can redirect public users to a specified URL. This link and message can be customized per event also.
In addition, you can set access levels for each category of events. This would affect who can SEE the event. An access level could be set on a category that would hide all events of that category from all users unless they are logged in and assigned to the appropriate user group.
Yes! For each event, you will have the option of establishing a capacity for the event. The frontend events list can show the capacity and current number registered for each event. If an event is full, the user will be taken to a page that gives them the option of adding themselves to a Waiting List in case space opens up in the event. You can also disable the waiting list and just send a user to a simple message telling them the event is full.
Yes! You can add "fee fields" which allow the user to alter the registration cost based upon the selections they make in your custom fields. Fee adjustments can be made to dropdowns, checkboxes and radio buttons. You can set a field option to change the registration cost positive, negative or none... and it can be a $ or % amount. This is part of what makes DT Register the most customizable event registration solution for Joomla! These fields can also be conditional. In addition, all events have a base fee (which can be 0) with options of early bird discounts, late fees, member discounts, group discounts, etc.
NONE! You have the OPTION of syncing with the JEvents calendar, but it is not required. DT Register has its own calendar, so a sync with JEvents is not recommended unless you desire to use it for some additional feature.
Yes! In the setup of each registration event, you can provide a date and time for a late fee to be added after that date. You can also specify a discount based on a date and time to be applied for an early bird registration promotion.
Yes! You can customize and enable your attendees list and choose which events you want to show this data. All fields have a parameter to designate if they will be included in a frontend attendee's list. The list can also be set to private and also link to user profiles!
Yes! You can have an individual rate and then a group rate that is calculated one of two ways: either a flat rate for a set number of registrants or a discounted individual rate after a set number of people join a group. When someone goes to register for your event (if both individual and group options are enabled), the first thing they will be asked is if they're registering as an individual or as part of a group. You can also set a limit on how many people can register in a group.
YES you can! Simply enter $0 as the registration fee and all payment options are bypassed in the registration process. You can also customize the form fields differently for free events as compared to the paid events.
Yes! You can have one default email or specify unique emails for each event. These emails can pull in data from the registration such as name, contact info, amount paid, payment method, etc. as well as data from any field that you create. There are also customizable emails that are sent when the user modifies / cancels their registrations, or when the admin modifies the status of a record.
Yes! All registration records are viewable in either the frontend or backend records management. You can also export them into a CSV file where you select which event(s) then which fields and info to include in your customized export file.
Yes and No. DT Register will work fine with the core Joomla SEF, but some users have experienced issues with other 3rd party SEF extensions like sh404SEF. If you have a problem, you would need to "Skip" DT Register in the settings of your SEF component and configure it to use core Joomla SEF for DT Register URLs or leave them as non-SEF. Note that you can create custom URLs to your list of events, calendar, etc without any issue. The URLs throughout the registration process are what will not be 100% SEF.
Yes! DT Register has a powerful and detailed permissions matrix that allows you to set which user groups have access to a list of functionalities within the component. You can also limit groups to only have access to elements (events, pay options, etc) that they are a designated moderator/owner of... so a group could have access to ALL records, or they could only have access to records for events that they are moderators for. Also, you can add individual users to the permissions matrix if someone needs permissions varied from their assigned user group.
