Installation

Download the package from here: https://github.com/Taracque/RaidPlanner/zipball/master
Install it with Joomla installer. During the installation 2 modules will be installed also (RaidPlanner Today and RaidPlanner Events), this can be enabled in the Module Manager page of the Joomla Admin interface.
The installer and the component works under 2.5 and 3.x versions.

Configuration
RaidPlanner Groups must be setup before anything else. Those groups defines access privilegs for RP.
Every unasigned user will be assigned automatically to the Default group.

Once you have finished the group configuration, the Characters should be loaded into the system somehow, there are 2 ways do doing this. Either you can enter characters manually – in that case all characters should be entered manually – or, it can be made automatically via WoW Armory synchronization. The synchronization setup (guild name, region, realm etc.), use the Options button on the upper right corner of RaidPlanner menu (don’t select submenus, just the main one).

RaidPlanner automatically installs a plugin which handles extra user fields, but this plugin needs to be enabled and configured manually in Extension Manager.

Documentation
The documentation can be read here, but it’s uncomplete atm.,
