help page layout / theme

2 years 10 months ago #45396 by pete
I have Jomres installed in Wordpress, installed using quickstart. I am getting om ok with configuring the Jomres side of things. Having a bit of difficulty with the template side of things.

e.g. the default Homepage is called Slideshow and has the following Shortcode:
[camera slideshow='accommodation-slideshow']
I can find where to configure the slider, but not the sections that appear underneath the Slideshow, e.g. top destinations, most popular sections, featured listings, random listings
I'm just trying to understand where the code is that calls these items.

Also, if I create a brand new page in wordpress and for instance add the slider shortcode
[camera slideshow='accommodation-slideshow']
This works, but the template is different, e.g. “Recent Comments” on the right hand side.

Can someone give me a quick guide to where I should be looking at or point me to a manual that might help?

Hi Pete,

All the elements on that page, apart from the particular slideshow defined in the shortcode, come from the page template used for that specific page. The page template is called "Homepage".

You can apply any page template to any page, you'll find the drop-down selector in the Page Attributes box on the right-hand side of the Edit Page for that page. Go ahead and experiment by creating a completely new page, apply the Homepage page template and preview the page, you'll see everything except for the slider.

So, the slider is the only thing you can edit directly via the Edit Page, by removing or changing that shortcode to display a different slider.

From memory, the only way to edit the other modules on the homepage is to edit a file you'll find in the Leohtian theme's includes folder.

Perfect, thanks donnaha. I hadn't noticed the tempaltes part on a wordpress page. I've had a play around and I'm able to change the template of a page now :)

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.
