This version of Jomres includes the ability to run Jomres in WordPress without needing the theme to support Bootstrap.

Ever since Jomres was modified to work with WordPress 7 years ago one limitation has always been that the CMS's theme needed to support Bootstrap. With recent changes in WordPress, this is no longer a problem.

In Site Configuration, you can set the Bootstrap version to "No Bootstrap in theme". If you do that Jomres will automatically include CDN versions of Bootstrap 3 which shouldn't affect other areas of the theme's markup.

Here you can see a screenshot of it in WordPress's Twenty Twenty-One theme.

If you choose to use this option, in Site Configuration it's recommended that you set the "Include Font Awesome icon set?" option to Yes.

To allow the BS3 Jomres template files to play nice it has been necessary to include a new template file called wordpress_non_bootstrap_tweaks.html which can be found here. This ensures that we can include some modifications necessary for WP installations without messing up existing Leohtian installations on WordPress or Joomla. Don't forget that you can use our template override functionality so if you decide to change this file, for example to work with a different theme, you can.

I have absolutely no idea how well this will work on other themes, so let us know by dropping into the new Jomres forums. I'm curious to know how you get on with it.



Jomres releases

  • Created on .


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 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.
