New Plugin: Property Biggup

This is a fun plugin I've been working on which is a twist on Slideshows and Reviews.

This plugin shows image thumbnails in the slideshow area, and when an image is clicked a full-screen modal opens with large images on the left and "Pro"s comments from reviews on the right. Like almost all Jomres plugins, it's CMS agnostic, meaning if it works in Wordpress, it works in Joomla too.

 This is the first plugin that provides detailed information that can be used by the Plugin Infos plugin that I released today, which is designed to plug a gap which neither the Plugin manager's information section, or the Shortcodes pages, could fill.

This is likely the last new plugin I'll create for a little while (unless I have another bright idea and decide to create something before I forget it). To date I've been making a lot of tweaks and changes creating site plugins that give you the tools to create beautiful sites, as opposed to building new functionality for Jomres Core. From here onwards I expect to work on building new quickstarts, now that the building blocks are available.

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.
