Installation into Wordpress - Install from Web

To install into Wordpress ( if you're not using one of the Quickstarts ) we recommend that you use the Install from Web feature.

Before you install Jomres

Jomres has three sets of templates, which allow it's layout and components to use different versions of the Bootstrap framework to achieve the best layout and offer things like modal popups and responsive and consistent styling. During the setup process Jomres will ask you which version of Bootstrap your theme supports, giving you a choice between None, Bootstrap 2, Bootstrap 3 or Bootstrap 5.

If your theme does not provide access to the Bootstrap framework, then normally you would choose None, however this isn't the best idea. Jomres can work in non-Bootstrapped themes, however it doesn't look that great in them.

If you don't have a Bootstrap based theme, we would recommend you install the Jomres Leohtian theme for Wordpress, you can download it here. Install and activate that first, before installing Jomres. If you use Leohtian, when you install Jomres you should choose Bootstrap 3 when you are given the choice.


Install Jomres

Basic installation is relatively simple. Use the Wordpress Install from web feature, search for Jomres and use the on-screen instructions to do the initial installation.

Jomres is very large, so the initial installation just installs some basic files, the real installation of Jomres happens when you Activate Jomres. Because Jomres is about 10mb in size, this might take some time, depending on your web server's internet connection speed. Please be patient.

Jomres should be automatically added to the WordPress main menu automatically. Don't remeve it. Next, add the Jomres Plugin Manager because you'll need that to use shortcodes.

Install the Plugin Manager

Once Jomres has appeared in the sidebar then it has been installed. Next, go to the Jomres menu option. You'll see this :

You can view Jomres, and explore a little, but you're going to want to build your site with some of the plugins that Jomres has so first you should install the basics of the plugins.

Under the Dashboard menu item, click Plugin Manager. You will be invited to install the plugin manager. Click "Let's do this"

Once the plugin manager has been installed, next you can install the Alternative Init plugin, and the Jomres Shortcodes plugin.

The vast majority of plugins are CMS agnostic, meaning that they work on both Joomla and WordPress.

Alternative Init is relatively close to the top. The Jomres Shortcodes plugin is Wordpress specific so it's right at the bottom of the list.

Alternative Init plugin

Alternative Init is the plugin that includes the Jomres framework files when Jomres itself isn't called directly.

Once you have installed the Jomres Shortcodes plugin visit the WordPress plugin manager and make sure you Activate Jomres Shortcodes. Alternative Init is CMS agnostic, but Jomres Shortcodes is a WordPress plugin and it needs to be activated before it can do it's work. None of the other plugins need to be activated because they're Jomres plugins, not WordPress plugins.


Test Shortcodes


Go to the Pages page, and add a new one. Call it Shortcodes test, and in it choose the Shortcode block

Save the page. You should now be able to visit the frontend of your site and see a new menu item called Shortcodes test  When you click on it, you should see the following :

Congratulations, you have installed Jomres and it's ready for you to build your site.
