Jomres is a fully featured hotel and villa booking system which is designed to be a plugin for the Joomla and Wordpress Content Management Systems. The Core system is free and open source and can be installed through both CMS's "Install From Web" features.
When you have a license you're gaining the ability to download Jomres own plugins, which considerably extend the system's functionality and to raise support tickets in the event that you have a question that you can't find an answer for in the manual.
It doesn't matter!
Jomres works on both CMSs due to it's unique CMS agnostic functionality. Almost all plugins are also CMS agnostic too (there are a handful of exceptions to this rule) which means if they work on one CMS, they'll work on the other. This is because they're plugins for Jomres, not the CMS itself.
Over the years my competitors have tried to build different systems for each CMS and this approach has let their customers down because two different codebases for highly complex systems are a nightmare to maintain. As a result their customers suffer because they're unable to maintain both sets of code to the same standard.
Compare that approach to the Jomres way of doing things. Any improvements brought to WordPress are also available to Joomla because Jomres itself is almost a standalone system that loosely hooks into either CMS.
You will no longer be able to download plugins through the Plugin Manager, or get support, and you must remove all Jomres Plugins.
Jomres Core will remain active but you will no longer be able to use plugins, including any shortcodes in articles/pages.
Yes, it is 100% Open Source, you can customise it completely to suit your own requirements.
Jomres and it's plugins are all hosted on your own server giving you complete control and autonomy over your business. There are integrations available if you want to hook into other systems but they're not mandatory to use it.
No, payment is done via Stripe. I only store the last 4 numbers of the card to help you to identify the card.
You don't need to download lots of plugins and go through a laborious upload process of multiple zip files, they can all be downloaded through the Jomres plugin manager at a single click of a button.
The Plugin Manager has been an integral part of Jomres since 2009 and it has proven to be the most efficient and reliable way of ensuring that Jomres plugins are easily kept up-to-date.
As soon as a new or updated plugin is uploaded to the plugin server you only need to visit the Plugin Manager to download it. The plugins themselves manage any installation processes they need to handle. I've had 12 years to make this process as seamless and easy as possible and I'm very happy with how well it works.
Just remember that if your license is not valid, you will not be able to download updates to plugins. If you should delete a plugin (e.g. through attempting to update it with an invalid license) then you will not be able to get it again.
Trial licenses are not available for Jomres. If you want to experiment with Jomres, install the Core system on your WordPress or Joomla installation through the CMS's Install From Web feature. It's free. Once you decide you want more features, then you can decide which license best suits your budget.
One-off, or single payment licenses are no longer available for Jomres.
Developed 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.
