Search widget updated

The Search Widget plugin has been updated and the new autocomplete feature backported for Bootstrap 3.

Reminder, this is the manual page for the search widget plugin.

The new autocomplete feature that was introduced in Jomres 10.2 has now been back-ported to Bootstrap 3.

Currently the only shortcode that includes the autocomplete field is "jomres search_widget &search_widget=horizontal_autocomplete_adults_children_button" however it's very easy to add the autocomplete input to another search widget search form.

Let's say that you wanted to use the horizontal_dates_features search form instead, all you need to do is edit index.html in /jomres/core-plugins/search_widgets/horizontal_dates_features/bootstrap3/ and add the following code to that template file.

<label class="control-label" for="autocomplete_field">{_JOMRES_SEARCH_FORM_WHERE_TO_GO}</label>

It really is that simple.

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.
