Jomres is Joomla's longest running Hotel Booking System/Booking portal. GPL licensed and going strong for 9 years, and after many requests, we've finally integrated it into Wordpress. The core system is free and is a working booking system which can be enhanced with plugins that can be downloaded through the Jomres Plugin Manager once you have purchased a Download and Support license.
Jomres has been built with the mindset that the data you create is yours, and nobody elses. Jomres is not a SAAS/cloud based system where you pay a monthly fee and the availability is subject to the profitability (or otherwise) of a hosting service. Once it's downloaded and installed it's yours to use for the lifetime of your project.
It has historically been written for use in the Joomla Content Management System. We chose to integrate with a CMS because this significantly improves the flexability availabile to our users with respect to how they can customise their sites. Version 8.1 introduces the ability for users to install not only on Joomla, but also into Wordpress. This means that we are able to provide Wordpress users with a tried and tested booking system without them needing to learn a new CMS.
Jomres is 10mb in size, and most servers cannot upload it via file upload (it's too big) so installation is performed through a web installer script. You can download the Wordpress installation plugin from here. You can use the Wordpress Plugin installer to start the installation process, in time we will also add it to the Wordpress plugin directory.
To see a quick overview of it's features, see the page at www.jomres.net. A fuller (but still not exhaustive) list of features can be seen on the features page.
For the Jomres Wordpress installation guide, please see this page. If you would like to get involved with the community forum, please visit here.
n.b. Jomres 8.1 has been tested in Wordpress 3.8. It may work on earlier versions of WP, however we haven't tested it on those and we cannot vouch for it's functionality.
