Plugin Information Plugin

I've mentioned this plugin elsewhere on this blog, however I feel that it deserves a complete blog post of it's own as it relates to the work I'm doing updating the Jomres documentation in 2022.

First things first : Do not install this plugin if your hosting service is running less than PHP8. I generally try to ensure that Jomres will run on older versions of PHP wherever possible, however this plugin uses a library that demands PHP8. That's why this plugin will remain a plugin, and not be made a part of Jomres Core.

Coming soon : the Jomres New Booking Engine

The Jomres project first started in March of 2005. At that time there were no models to *cough*borrow*cough* ideas from, every booking engine was doing it's own thing. Nowadays most booking engines tie a booking to a room type. In Jomres in 2005 I chose to create individual rooms, and tie bookings to each room because at the time I was modelling for a boutique hotel that offered guests the option to choose a specific room.

Quickstart Kickstarts complain about no DB support

It's come to my attention that the latest versions of kickstart.php that are packaged in the Quickstarts will sometimes report that there's no database support.

I believe that this might be a bug in the kickstart script, every time I've just hit Next to go to the next step and the installation has proceeded as expected.

So, when you're running the Quickstart, if you see that warning, just ignore it. In fact, I've always ignored any of the warnings on that panel and it's never been a problem.

vince picDeveloped and maintained by Vince Wooll, 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. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince 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 Valentina Template Override Package.
