Reminder : Github

Just a quick post to remind everybody that whilst we do offer the forum it doesn't get a lot of use.

The vast majority of our users actually use the issues page on Github for discussing feature requests and bug reports.

2018 licenses annual review and tweaks

 A year ago I introduced the new Jomres Developer Subscription package for users who wanted free trials of Jomres that then convert over to subscriptions. This has proven exceptionally popular with our users because it allows them to experiment with the system, decide if it suits their requirements, and then seamlessly transition to full time licenses.

At the same time I introduced the Single Property license, which provided a limited set of plugins and two (WP & J) Single Property Quickstarts which were designed for the occasional user who had badgered me for a cheaper license for single property installations of Jomres.

50th birthday fundraiser for Dog's Trust

Guys and girls.

As you know, it's my 50th Birthday soon and I've started a fundraiser for the Dog's Trust charity on Facebook.

I appreciate all of the good wishes you've sent so far, if you're inclined it would be great if you could support the amazing work that Dog's Trust do to look after dogs in the UK.

Jomres 9.12 news

First things first, a couple of people may be aware of a reported CSRF bug in Jomres. I tested the PoC as described as soon as I became aware of the report and I'm delighted to say that the report is false.  Nevertheless I made the JED and VEL aware of the report and my findings.

Moving on.

Jomres 9.11.0 (GDPR) Released

Jomres 9.11.0 has been released. This version includes tools that help you to ensure that your sites are GDPR compliant.

There are significant changes to how guest and manager details are stored, all details are now securely encrypted when "at rest" in the database. I have tested Jomres as thoroughly as I can however as always I advise you to first make a backup of your site before you run any updates, and ideally test the update on a staging/development server before applying the same changes to your live server.

Jomres license keys

I have been doing some maintenance on the license server. As a result, those of you with older license keys might be getting license incorrect messages in the admin area of your Jomres installations.

If you do see that, please log into your account on and use the key that you can find on your licenses page, it may have changed slightly and you'll need to use the new keys.

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
