Joomla 3 support

Here I'd like to let you know about my plans for Joomla 3 support. will stop supporting Joomla 3.10 on the 17th August, 2023.

Because Jomres is CMS agnostic, it will be able to continue working on Joomla 3 into the future, so if you absolutely must use Joomla 3 and can't move over to Joomla 4, you will still be able to use Jomres (including future versions).

This comes with some caveats. I'm no longer testing changes in Bootstrap 2 or Bootstrap 3 based Jomres template files. Likewise, most new plugins aren't supplied with templates tested on Bootstrap 3. Some plugins are introduced that specifically use Bootstrap 5 features, and will be of no use to you on Bootstrap 3 sites, however some are not.

An example of this is the new Search Form Elements plugin. This plugin is delivered with Bootstrap 2 and 3 template sets, however they're simply copies of the Bootstrap 5 templates and I have not and will not update them to work in lower versions of Bootstrap. If you're absolutely married to a Joomla 3 based site (which almost certainly uses Bootstrap 3 for layout) you can use the Site Designer and Developer Guide on how to create overrides for plugin template files, and then backport the markup in them to work in Bootstrap 3.

This stance will continue for the forseeable future. There may come a time when it's impossible for Jomres to work within Joomla 3, but because of how it's structured, that's likely a long way into the future.

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.
