All the instructions are refer to JLTicketCenter component in Joomla Administrator.
Once you install the component you should set up the basic component parameters. Log in to Joomla administrator. Switch to JLTicketCenter Component (Menu: Components->JLTicketCenter -> Setup) and go to setup menu. Here we would explain each parameter and what its doing:
Each eTicket has its own unique number. The ticket number format is made of 3 blocks of following numbers: XXXX-YYYY-ZZZZ The 1st block - XXXX - is present the event id. The 2nd block - YYYY - is present the order id. The 3th block - ZZZZ - is present the ticket id. Ticket id is a sequence unique number for all the system, so each ticket got its own number.
JLTicketCenter has a Smart Tickets Availability Management (STAM) that checking the current tickets availability and doesn't let user to buy more tickets then available. The STAM system include cart tickets reservation ability base on timer.
Cart has timer so you can set the cart to reserve tickets on cart for certain time and during this time tickets are reduce from total available tickets. In case user hasn't complete the order during this time, the cart is cleared and then tickets become available again.
For example: if Available tickets = 10, already sold=5, and some user put 2 in cart. then other user would see only 3 tickets available (this behavior also override "Max ticket quantity" parameter). If the first user wouldn't make on order until cart expired then the tickets wouldn't reserved any more and available tickets would be back to 5.
STAM system is always override "Max ticket quantity" parameter so in case administrator set the "Max ticket quantity" to 10 and only 5 tickets are available, the system would display only 5 on quantity selection.
In component set up switch to "Cart and Currency" tab, look at "Advance" field set. There is a field called "Smart Cart Manage" set it to "Yes".Setup a corn job to clean expired cart on server - when Smart Cart manager is set to yes, the system reduce the amount of tickets in cart from selling. To make this feature working currently you should create a cron tab that run every few minutes (recomanded every minute) that check if there is expired cart records and if so, it would clean them, so the reserve amount would be available again Cron task should run on http://yoursite.com/index.php?option=com_jlticketcenter&view=cart&task=cron&format=raw&pass=myPassword Please mind that you should setup the "Cron Password" field to be match to paramater pass as "pass=myPassword" in cron URL.
JLTicketCenterPro has ability to cancel expired order after declared amount of days. To tun this ability on you should set a cron tab job to run once a day, and set the amount of days in component set up. How to?
To set up a cron tab, check you hosting support for help.
JLTicketCetnerPro allow administrator to integrate events to Facebook Profile or Page. When Facebook integration is set up and an event is added or edit the JLTicketCenterPro is automatic update event data in Facebook profile or Page.
Setup Facebook integration - in component admin go to setup - "FaceBook Intergration" tab and set the "Facebook App Id", "Facebook App Secret" and "Facebook Page Id". Switch to "Events" management and Log in to face book user the blue Log in button.Then when you edit or add event, it would automatic update in your Facebook profile or page.
