How do I add "USD" to the prices shown on front end? They are shown just as a number and can lead to confusion...

I am guessing this is easy, just can't seem to find where to do that.

We are finally publishing properties on the front end! Yeah.

Thanks a lot,

Mogens

Can you show a screenshot?

The demo shows the currency codes ( snippets.jomres.net/2018-01-19_wsrm4.png ) so it must be a change you've made somewhere that's causing you problems.

Thanks for the reply Vince, I am adding a screenshot. The $ sign is also used in different countries as the money sign, so it doesn't make it clear for many that it is US Dollars, we'd like it to be US$ XXX.XX or something similar. I am wondering how that could be done, if at all.
Greetings,
Mogens

Hi Vince.

OK, that looks easy enough, but now the question is what's the easiest way to edit that file? I could download it via FTP, open it in Dreamweaver or Notepad and then re-upload it. Maybe there is an easier way to access that file on Jomres directly, is there?

Thanks again.

Before you modify any files, please see this page www.jomres.net/manual/developers-guide/52-customising-jomres

To modify files, the easiest way is an ftp app like WinSCP which allows you to edit the file as it is on the server. You should not use Notepad, instead use Notepad++

I strongly recommend that you read all of the pages in that particular section if you're going to modify stuff. There are a lot of ways to skin a cat, for example Rod's new Valentina plugin ( demos.jomres-plugins.com/ ) is a template pack as described here :

www.jomres.net/manual/site-managers-guid...te-override-packages

Jomres' override functionality is a little different to most components. That's because the system is capable of working on both Joomla and Wordpress through some thin bridges. It's way waaay more efficient than having two codebases for the two CMSs. Our competitors also try to compete with us in the Wordpress world but because they have to maintain two codebases, their Wordpress version gets forgotten. I can do monthly releases of the system with this approach, which others can't do.

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.
