Jomres 9.9.1 released

Jomres 9.9.1 has been released and we've added some funky new functionality for your property managers.

The Property Manager's dashboard has been updated to add Widgets to the Property Manager's Control Panel, allowing them to add, remove and move widgets around to suit their own particular tastes.


See a video of it in action here.

Other changes

We taken the decision in this version to disallow property managers from changing a property's Type once they've created it. This is because changing a type can cause a cascade of problems because rooms and tariffs have the potential to be associated with the wrong property type. These aren't necessarily dangerous but they can be confusing for the user therefore we feel that if a user wants a property to be of a different type, they'll need to create a new property.

We're aware that not everybody will like this change, so we'll keep it under review for now.

Datatable changes

For years some default functionality in Datatables has caused Mod Security to throw a hissy fit and cause 503 errors when table views loaded data via ajax. We've identified the cause and hopefully future users shouldn't see this issue again, which is a relief as it was starting to get really annoying.


Apart from these changes, there are the usual host of tweaks/adjustments & fixes. Check out the changelog for a more complete list.

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.
