Jomres 9.9.18 released

It's a new year and it's time for a new version of Jomres.

There are some new features in this version of the system, and as usual a bundle of changes and tweaks.

For a more complete breakdown see the changelog, but in summary....

  • Added a new setting to Tariffs and Currencies tab which allows property managers to save a basic price that would be shown if no prices can otherwise be determined. When properties are shown in a list, the system will attempt to find a valid price from configured tariffs based on either today's date, or if dates were used in a search, then based on those dates. If it cannot, then it will show POA (Price on application), meaning that the guest should contact you to get a price. If you want, you can configure a price in Tariffs and Currencies that will be shown instead of the POA text. This figure would be a "fallback" price to display if no other price can be determined. Bookings do not use this price, this is purely a cosmetic feature.
  • Updated a feature that allows you to include a script's output in a template without modifing the calling script's corresponding minicomponent.
  • Updated template override functionality to 1. Allow templates to reside in /plugin_name/templates/bootstrapN/ directories as well as the plugin's root and 2. Allow template overrides to have property type overrides underneath /plugin_name/templates/bootstrapN/, such as /plugin_name/templates/bootstrapN/P where P is the property type id.
  • Added a feature whereby property features can be configured to not show in search lists.
  • Moved all jomres core js, css, images, templates and map_styles to /assets dir and updated all paths accordingly. This begins the process of preparing for Joomla 4 and Bootstrap 4.
  • Most javascript files are now managed via npm ( npm is the package manager for JavaScript ). Results in a larger footprint, but libraries are updated regularly.
  • Added a new "nag" to encourage guests who have completed a booking to review the property.

ABOUT US

Vince portrait smallaladar

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.
