Blōwan updated with multilanguage support

Jomres 10.7.1 released, and a new version of the Blōwan Quickstart is available.

The Blōwan Quickstart has been updated. It is now configured to be a multilanguage site, out of the box, and it includes both English and Spanish. This will give new users an easy framework to build upon and make getting started even easier when you want to support multiple languages.

Jomres 10.7.1 has been released at the same time. It includes a variety of tweaks to support the new release of Blōwan and some general maintenance and improvements.

The Blōwan Getting Started guide has also been updated to highlight that you now need to save Stripe API keys when you first go to the Administrator area of Jomres (and what to do if you don't need subscriptions and intend to only administer property managers as a super property manager).

Have fun!


Jomres releases, Quickstarts

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.
