What is required to use a different Joomla theme for Jomres?

9 months 3 weeks ago #47133 by Ciaran Meagher

I have a few questions regarding the use of different Joomla templates, and WP themes, with JomRes:

1. If I wanted to use another (Bootstrap based) Joomla template for JomeRes, is this possible? Ideally I would like to use a different template for all JomRes functionality, without resorting to using the Leothian template.

2. Are there any technical or configuration challenges that I need to be made aware of in advance? For example, placing an availability calendar into any module position - can this be achieved easily?

3. If the above is possible, should I install the quickstart first, and then install my other template?

4. Similarly, is it possible to use the WP version of JomRes with any other third party WP theme, other than Leothian?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Ciaran,

1. Yes, no problem.

2. No challenges, we adhere closely to the Bootstrap 3 markup to ensure that this is the case.

3. I would, it saves time.

4. This, TBH is more difficult. Also we can't provide SEF urls in WP like we can in Joomla therefore at this stage I'd recommend J over WP.

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.
