Trial licenses are back, but not as you knew them

I thought I'd put together this blog post to describe some new stuff in Jomres that will be of interest to those users who are asking us about trial licenses.


In the current version of Jomres ( 9.9.14 ) I introduced some new code that allows you to register a trial license through Jomres itself. This license is valid for 30 days, and after 30 days it'll switch over automatically to a 29€ per month subscription. When we were running the previous 14 day trial licenses we found that quite a few users would request a longer trial, so this should please those users who want to take their time when deciding on the right product for them.

Once you have a trial license, you will be able to log into your account and download one of the Quickstarts. This is perfect if you're just getting started with Jomres because the Quickstarts are a complete booking site in one file, there are plenty of vidoes on our site that show you how to install it if you're unfamiliar with Akeeba kickstart, but if you have problems you can always raise a ticket and we'll be happy to help you out.

It's easy enough to cancel the trial before the 30 days are up, you can do it either through Stripe itself, or you can log into your account on and cancel the trial in the view invoice page.

I hope that this trial system proves even more popular with our new users than the older system did. The "built into Jomres" license registration is great for users who already have a Jomres installation and they want to extend it through use of plugins, whilst the availability of the Quickstarts means that new users of Jomres can get up a site up and running in no time at all.

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, 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 formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

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. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team 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 new Valentina Template Package.
