EZ Clubs is one of our new components released in 2012, and it has now been upgraded to run on Joomla 3.0x. It's an easy-to-use system to list clubs, venues and other establishments on your Joomla! powered site, so rather than use something larger such as EZ Realty - EZ Clubs may be just what you need.
We've also designed EZ Clubs to be a flexible system - so you should find it'll be suitable if you're wanting to run a wedding portal. Such sites contain a range of listings categories - eg. photographers, wedding videos, cake decorators, marriage celebrants, car hire, churches and other non-religious venues for wedding ceremonies, venues for the after-wedding celebrations and more! EZ Clubs has the flexibility.
If you need something to showcase your models or adult agency staff - EZ Clubs will also be of interest to you, as it has the great image systems used by EZ Realty and EZ Autos - Google mapping support and the ability to include videos hosted by places such as Youtube.
EZ Clubs V2 Features
Installing EZ Clubs and its modules is so simple - just a matter of point and click with your mouse - and they're all installed in one go.
EZ Clubs V2 for Joomla 3.0x has a responsive design based on the Twitter Bootstrap system, to enable your listings to look great on all browsers and mobile devices.
