Other Notes:

JomSocial must be installed in order for this plugin to work.  For more details on JomSocial, visit

Private JomSocial events are only shown on the calendar of the event owner.


Known Limitations:

The category controller add-on does not affect JomSocial events

Zap Calendar requires a specific time zone name for date/time calculations.  JomSocial's time zone setting uses an offset value, so a specific time zone setting is required.  This can be problematic for events in more than one time zone.
