Jomres and Joomla 4

I have an update for all of you users keenly waiting for the Jomres update that will be compatible with Joomla 4.

The update is almost all done, and I have to say it certainly looks great in Bootstrap 5.

As a part of the update process approximately 85 plugins have been updated with a Bootstrap 5 template set to complement the upcoming Jomres release. The purpose of these updates is so that you can install the new version of Jomres on Joomla 4, with plugins, without the system throwing errors because the template sets don't exist. The template sets for each plugin have not yet been modified to work with Bootstrap 5, they're essentially copies of the Bootstrap 3 templates that already exist. Some will need only minor changes, some will need much more significant changes and I'll be rolling out those changes over the next few weeks once the new version of Jomres has been formally released. As you probably know, updating plugins is very easy using the Jomres Plugin Manager which is why it makes sense to do things in this order, rather than rolling out individual plugins after the new Jomres version has been released, and having the ticket system getting clogged up with people saying "X plugin is causing patTemplate errors!" because it hasn't been updated yet.

Just is case there's any doubt, from here on out Bootstrap 4 is absolutely not supported in any way within Jomres.

If you want to have a fiddle with the new version of Jomres in J4, you can do so by installing the Nightly branch. You can install direct into J4 in just the same way as you would on J3, it all works exactly the same.

Right, as you were everybody. All-Ahead standard, helm.




Jomres releases, Bootstrap

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.
