VikEvents Updater

The latest version 1.10 of VikEvents was released on May 17th 2018. All those with an active Support License on the release day will be able to upgrade for free. Therefore, under your account there must be a purchase for either Vik Events or a previous Update for Vik Events, made after the end of October 2017 (6 months before the release day).

If you purchased VikEvents before that date, and so your Support License is expired, then you will have to purchase the paid version of the update (not a copy of VikEvents) from the Extensions Updates page.

Please notice that your old version of the component may still be stable, so upgrading is not mandatory.
We suggest visiting the Demo Website to see some of the new features.

Nothing bad will happen to your site if you haven't edited the source code of VikEvents. If you did, then some of your modifications might go lost. Of course no overrides will be touched by the update, and no custom template files for the tickets or other messages will be modified.
This update will overwrite the two CSS files of VikEvents, the one for the front site and also the one for the administrator section, including all the default images. A lot of Views of the front and back -ends have been modified so they will be replaced with the update in order to support the new features. The ticket template files will NOT be overwritten by the update, they will just be created if missing.
If you are upgrading from the version 1.9 then the front-end will not show many differences, it will just use scalable font-icons and a more responsive layout. Instead, if you are upgrading from an older version, then the look of the extension will be drastically changed as many views were re-designed.
All the custom language translations will NOT be touched, only the English translation files will be overwritten, so in case you have translated VikEvents into other languages, open those .ini language files and compare them with the new English .ini files to find the new definitions at the bottom. You will see that at the end of the file some definitions are missing, just add them into your translated files and translate the new definitions to update the other languages.

If you appreciate the new features of this update, please consider writing a review for the new VikEvents in the Joomla Extensions Directory, it would help the component grow even better and it will pay our efforts back.
