Shortcode summary

Most Jomres users simply want to use the system "as is" (and that's ok) but if you're one of those people building a business from a booking engine, there are lots more ways you can build your site using the tools in Jomres that might not be immediately apparent from a quick viewing of the demos.

Jomres is exceptionally powerful and it includes a lot of tools that require digging into the manual to get the most out of it, so here I will mention a pivotal set of features that are collectively known as Shortcodes.

I'm back (did ya miss me?)

Some of my regular users may have noticed that I have been unable to provide ticket support for the last few weeks.

For this I have to apologise profusely. Two months ago my landlady told me that she wasn't going to renew my rental contract and instead sell her house. Having been a renter for 20 years and having been forced to move home several times because this has happened to me before, as you can imagine I was very angry at having to do it all over again.

Channel Management Framework update June 2020

This is a quick blog post to keep everybody appraised of the progress of the Channel Management Framework.

Before I get to the meat of the update, I'd like to offer a word of thanks to some people who are very important to me, and without whom this would not have been built. To Donnacha, Rodrigo, Aladar, Iuri, and Mark. It's your faith, vision and encouragement that has helped me to find the energy to push this thing forward. To all of you, thank you.

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 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. 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.
