Keeping you up-to-date (Jim Beam not included)

Away From Keyboard for a few days

This is a quick note to let you know that I'll be away from my desk for a few days.

A few people will probably think that this post is unprofessional, but frankly I don't really care what they think.

Jomres is a passion project. Sometimes it drives me nuts, sometimes it brings me joy. There are days when I celebrate the project and there are other days when the last thing I want to do is be at my desk (don't worry, winter's coming so being locked in by snow will be a blessing for you all).

Those that have been following the project will know that my other passion is my dogs. For many years I had 4. Two have since passed on and tomorrow I have to let Jason, my wonderful German Shepherd, go too.

This wonderful big boy has been with me for 8 1/2 years, he's been at my side through thick and thin. He has protected me from cats, strangers and the dangers of having too many sausages in the fridge.

So, I sincerely hope that you'll forgive me for my absense while we take some time to celebrate His Magnificent Awesomeness and send him on his way with a belly full of treats, many tummy rubs and praises of his Good Boyness ringing in his ears.

See you all on Monday the 8th of November.

Vince Wooll

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.
