50th birthday fundraiser for Dog's Trust

Guys and girls.

As you know, it's my 50th Birthday soon and I've started a fundraiser for the Dog's Trust charity on Facebook.

I appreciate all of the good wishes you've sent so far, if you're inclined it would be great if you could support the amazing work that Dog's Trust do to look after dogs in the UK.

Jomres 9.10.0 released

Jomres 9.10.0 has been released.

This version is a significant version bump because the installation process has been completely rewritten to modernise it and to integrate it more tightly with the host CMS.

We have tested this as thoroughly as we can, however because this is quite a large change we cannot stress how important it is that you remember to perform a site backup before you upgrade. It's something that we always say when we release a new version, but it needs to be repeated.

Jomres 9.12 news

First things first, a couple of people may be aware of a reported CSRF bug in Jomres. I tested the PoC as described as soon as I became aware of the report and I'm delighted to say that the report is false.  Nevertheless I made the JED and VEL aware of the report and my findings.

Moving on.

Jomres 9.11.0 (GDPR) Released

Jomres 9.11.0 has been released. This version includes tools that help you to ensure that your sites are GDPR compliant.

There are significant changes to how guest and manager details are stored, all details are now securely encrypted when "at rest" in the database. I have tested Jomres as thoroughly as I can however as always I advise you to first make a backup of your site before you run any updates, and ideally test the update on a staging/development server before applying the same changes to your live server.

Sensitive data encryption in Jomres

I am aiming to make the next version of Jomres compatible with the GDPR. To that end I will be adding several new features that I would appreciate feedback from the community with.

Jomres 9.9.15 released

Jomres 9.9.15 has been released.

This is primarily a maintenance release as it includes a variety of tweaks and bug fixes. We had to rename the shortcode class as this classname is a reasonably common classname among third party wordpress plugins and we wanted to avoid potential conflicts.

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.
