Jomres 9.21.0 released

This version brings a couple of new features that users will love.

To start with, there's the new No Show handling which is designed to make it easier for property managers/hosts to judge the risk that a guest might not turn up. More info here.

Next, I have significantly updated Jomres' microdata. I'm proud to say that without a doubt Jomres has the most complete microdata available for any Joomla booking engine. All microdata is served through it's own template file and hotels and villas (MRPs and SRPs) have their own unique templates. Have a look at the demo.* There's absolutely oodles of lovely food for the googlebot to get it's teeth into on your sites. At the same time the old microdata has been removed from the property header and reviews templates and the Joomla/Wordpress Template/Theme have been updated to reflect that change. If you have your own versions of those template files I recommend that you update them accordingly.

You can now easily add searching by property features to Joomla menus. Go to New Menu Item, choose Jomres and then choose property features as the required option. Job done.

On top of these changes are a bunch of new adjustments that improve how logging works, and how often session data is cleaned up as well as other tweaks and changes.

 

* Note, the warnings on that page can be ignored, the data simply doesn't exist and it's not required in this scenario).

ABOUT US

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.
