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

New Vanilla Quickstarts available

There are some new Quickstarts available to download, the Jomres Vanilla Quickstarts.

 Download information can be found here.

The purpose of providing these Quickstarts is to give you the opportunity to start building your Online Booking website as quickly as possible. There are a couple of shortcodes configured, and the theme/templates are children of Cassiopeia and TwentyTwentyThree, but for the most part they're vanilla Jomres Core.

No license is required to download and use these Quickstarts.

Edit 21 April 2023

I've updated the Joomla Vanilla Quickstart, added Stripe test keys so that you can see the payment gateway in action and in the homepage added a search elements form that you can use. I'll add the search form to the Quickstart at a later date.

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.
