Jomres 9.8.2 released

This version is mainly a bug-fix release, but adds one new feature.


This release comes hot on the heels of the previous version. Despite extensive testing some issues with languages came to light after releasing 9.8.0, so significant chunks of the language handling have been rewritten.

There's also a fix for the router not properly routing list properties urls, the problem was loosely linked to the above problem ( how the framework was all pulled together ).

We have also re-added some code that allows displaying of html in property details, which has previously been sanitised, so there's nice. It was removed from the previous versions in error.


We have included a new anonymous tracking feature that needs to be enabled by Admin. This is opt-in, not opt-out, we won't force it on anybody, but rest assured that we don't track anything that will identify the source server. This allows us to understand how much Jomres is used, how many free v licensed servers and the popularity of it's features. This will help us to make more informed decisions in the future about how we should develop functionality.

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.
