Jomres 9.23.5 released

This version brings a couple of new features...

As well as a few tweaks and improvements, there's a little new functionality added.

  1. Admin Options levels. In the admin area the UI is made leaner and simpler due to a new setting (Site Config > Misc tab, first option) that removes the bulk of options. The three options available are Basic, Common and Everything.
  2. Initial setup configuration. On installation you're given the option to decide if you'll allow analytics to be collected anonymously (not added yet, but it's nice to get permission anyway) and if your site is a single property or multi-property site.
  3. New "New property" button in admin Cpanel so that you can quickly get to the New Property page in the frontend.

As well as those changes, the Syndicate property handling has been significantly updated to improve performance, both on the local server and on the server's being queries. Syndicate output has had it's layout improved too. Syndicate properties are only shown on sites that don't have an active license.

Photo view property name has been shortened to prevent layout issues, and a new warning has been added to the frontend if Development mode is enabled.

9.23.4 The plugin manager is now delivered unencoded, thereby removing an obstacle to adoption.



Jomres releases

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 released as a commercial project. Since then Jomres has become the world's oldest online booking plugin for any PHP CMS. It has been used in Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 2.5, 3 & 4 and WordPress 4, 5 & 6.

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.
