Update: Beta 3 is now available


We are pleased to announce the availability of the third beta release of version 3.0 of Zap Calendar.  This release provides support for three versions of Joomla: versions 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7.  It is available to all current Zap Calendar subscribers, which can be downloaded from the My ZApps page at the Zap Store on the Z Content website.

This is a beta release and has not been extensively tested.  You should test the product in your environment to see if the beta version is suitable in your production site.  Any issues found with this beta release should be posted to the Zap Calendar forum at the Z Content website.

Highlights of this beta release include:


  • All 20+ plugins and modules from version 2.2 are now available in 3.0
  • PHP 5.3 is supported
  • New Month Header plugin - The newest plugin for Zap Calendar Standard and Pro beta 3.0 will display a horizontal list of months at the top of the calendar. Click on the month's name to switch directly to that month.
  • Updated Photo Header plugin - You can now click on the photo to browse from month to month, similar to clicking on photos in Facebook to display the previous or next photo.
  • Many bug fixes.


This beta version also includes Spanish and Portuguese language packs.  Additional languages will be released as they are converted.

This beta release does not yet support Joomla's ACL feature introduced in Joomla 1.6, although it does contain the features necessary to configure it.  The ACL feature will be completed in a future release.
