New Vanilla Single Property Quickstart available
There's a new Vanilla Single Property Quickstart available to download.
Like the other Vanilla Quickstarts, it's a basic installation of Jomres configured a certain way. This one is setup so that you can spin up a single property website in just a few minutes. You can see the demo here.
This Quickstart is slightly different to the others. Jomres absolutely needs to have a link in a Joomla menu, so the menu link is in an unpublished menu called Hidden. I wanted to have it so that we could have a menu option going to the Jomres control panel that wasn't visible to Guests. The problem is that if you simply make the menu option limited to Registered or higher users, then the ajax in plugins (including the booking form) will not work.
Adding Jomres to the Hidden menu solved this problem. I was then able to add a System link to the Main Menu that simply points to /index.php?option=com_jomres for the Control Panel menu options that's visible to registered guests and property managers who want to log in and view their bookings or properties.
As usual the Quickstart includes Akeeba backup, and this Quickstart also uses Articles Anywhere to build the homepage. This is the free version, but I highly recommend you consider updating to the paid version because it comes with some cool features.
Because it's virtually all just Joomla (excepting those two extensions) the intention is that you will be able to install your favourite theme/template and/or page builder and start customising the site quickly and easily.
This Quickstart is built on Joomla 4.3, currently the latest version. I have to admit, I found building this Quickstart I've really come to adore Joomla 4. It's just so easy to build sites in it. It's fast, secure and logical. Well played, Joomla.org.
