Jomres Online Booking System

Description

Complete Online Booking and Property Management Solution

Jomres is a commission-free, responsive, Open Source online booking system used by thousands of businesses worldwide to manage their properties and reservations. Fully-integrated into WordPress, you can create an unlimited number of booking websites, accessible to customers on any device, in any language.

A complete booking engine for 79€, it’s an absolute bargain!

What makes us different?

Unlike other booking engines, Jomres is self-hosted, meaning that the software is installed on your web server, not ours, giving you complete control.

Why pay monthly and per-booking fees that can rise at any time, to keep your business trapped on someone else’s server? You´re relying on a service you cannot customize and features that might change or disappear without warning. If you don’t control your business, you don’t really have a business.

The Jomres plugin and theme eco-system provides a vast array of functionality without having to touch the code. We provide over 150 plugins at no extra cost and the theme you see in our demos, while third-party developers also provide plugins and themes.

What’s new?

Jomres is the only self-hosted booking engine with a REST API and Webhooks, giving you unparalleled power to interact with the entire universe of Web services. If you plan to build the next Airbnb, Expedia or Booking.com, you have come to the right place.

Since 2005, Jomres has been one of the leading Open Source booking systems. Just like WordPress, Jomres is yours for free, yours for life, yours to tweak and customize as you wish, and with both an active community and a full-time, professional company behind it.

Jomres transforms WordPress into a portal through which you and other users can offer hotels, villas, apartments, B&Bs, tours, restaurants, cars, bikes, equipment rental and even boats. Whether you are offering one hotel or thousands of apartments, your website will look professional and maximize your bookings. Best of all, unlike the hosted services, there is NO COMMISSION on your bookings because YOU OWN JOMRES.

See the Single Hotel Demo here

See the Portal Demo here – a variety of bookable items, multiple owners

Over a decade of experience and user feedback has resulted in a dashboard that makes it easy for you to manage your bookings on a secure, feature-rich platform. Other plugins focus on style but have not bothered to examine how property managers actually work. Don’t waste weeks developing a site before your client discovers that it is useless to them without a certain feature.

Right from the start, for free, Jomres Core gives you a real booking system. Additional features and payment gateways can be added via the 130 plugins that license holders can use for an unlimited number of properties, on an unlimited number of domains.

To understand the sheer scope of Jomres, explore the Feature Grid; no other booking application offers even half this level of capability.

Again, the free Jomres Core gives you a complete booking system that can make you money without any need to buy a license, but we are so sure of the value that the additional features deliver that we give all users a 14-Day Free Trial (Ioncube required) during which all the plugins can be used without any restriction. After two weeks, you can decide whether you wish to buy a license or simply revert to the free Jomres Core.

License holders also have access to the theme used in the two demos above and two special “QuickStart” zip files that enable you to deploy a full installation of WordPress with everything already set up to exactly match either the Single Hotel Demo or the Portal Demo. You can be up-and-running, with a fully-featured booking website that looks terrific, within minutes.

Jomres is an advanced system, designed to cater to a wide variety of client needs. Made in Britain, and improved by over a decade of user questions and suggestions, the well-written Installation Guide, Jomres Manual, Documentation and Tutorial Videos are free to everyone and make it easy to find the settings you need to build the booking website you want.

The Jomres Forum is also completely free to everyone, we hope you will join our active and friendly community.

If you want the reassurance of fast support directly from the developers of Jomres, license holders have access to the Support Ticket system.

Translations

  • Jomres includes 31 language files in varying states of translation as we rely on members to feed back their versions of the language files. It includes a variety of methods for translation allowing you to have different labels for different property types, and even individual properties.

Note: If you would like to contribute a language file back to the project please email us at sales@jomres.net, typically an update to a language file will earn you between 1-6 months added to your license, depending on the amount of translation that was required to bring the language file up-to-date.

Additional Info

Upgrades are best performed through the Jomres Updates menu option in the administrator area.

Post Installation recommendations

The Jomres developers are big fans of Bootstrap 3. It’s a responsive CSS and Javascript framework that’s easy to learn yet offers a great deal of flexibility, flexibility that you will appreciate as you customise the site for your clients or yourselves.

We recommend that the first thing you do is find a Bootstrap 2 or 3 WordPress template that you like and install that on your site. Next, go to Jomres’ Site Configuration area and set “Use Jomres Bootstrap templates in the frontend?” to Yes and set “Bootstrap version” to Bootstrap 2 or 3.

This will ensure that your WP template and the Jomres templates play nicely together.

Installation videos

Jomres Core is free but its real power comes from its plugins. To see for yourself, order a 14-Day Free Trial.

Is Jomres free?

Yes. Jomres follows the Open Core business model for Open Source projects. The Jomres Core itself is free to download and install. To help pay the bills some features of the system are delivered as plugins in the Jomres Plugin Manager, to download those you will need a license key saved in your Jomres installation’s Site Configuration page.

What do I get for free?

Tried and tested Jomres is a true bookings portal and has thousands of users who’ve helped us to fine-tune the system to make it the best in it’s class.
Large and enthusiastic community forum Before choosing a competitor, check out their forums, if they have one. In our experience a plugin’s real value can be determined from a forum’s activity, it is the heart and soul of the project. If the forum’s dead, so is the project. Don’t believe fake reviews, look for yourself.
Totally multilingual 45 language files are included by default. Unique label editing feature allows each property to have their own labels, and our Language Context feature allows different property types to have completely different language files.
Supports both Bootstrap 2 and Bootstrap 3, another first Completely responsive. We have adhered to the BS2 and BS3 coding standards religiously, so Jomres will work in any theme that uses Bootstrap. As always, where we lead other Booking systems will follow.
Works for just single property sites, or multiple properties Equally suited to booking hotels, B&Bs and individual properties like apartments and villas, cars, boats and tools.
Intelligent, Ajax driven reservation system Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for guests to make bookings. Two different room list styles, autodetect guest country, even disable the depature date input altogether. Each property can have different Required fields in the form. Property managers can enable/disable booking functionality on each property at the flick of a switch. For hotels, single person supplements can be applied in the event of under-occupancy. Each property chooses it’s own currency and pricing output format. Create new WordPress users when unregistered users book for the first time. Room locking means that if one person selects a room during booking, another person using the form at the same time can’t book the same room.
Optimised for performance our clients have successfully used it on websites with more than 30,000 properties listed. Guests, invoices and booking listings are all Ajax driven meaning that it deals with large data volumes very easily.
Bookings per night or per day Deposits can be a percentage or flat rate, or the first day’s booking cost. Variable depsosits based on the number days from today determine if the deposit paid should be a smaller fee, or the whole booking cost.
We listen to our users The property manager’s User Interface has been designed after consulting with real property managers to provide the most logical User eXperience possible.
Clear separation of Site and Property manager responsibilities All property management is done via the front end of the site, no need to allow managers to access the administrator area.
Todo lists They guide your property managers through setting up individual properties, from pricing through to property description and images.
Simple or extended property configuration Site managers choose whether property managers should have few, or many settings to choose from.
Crisp, clean dashboard Drag and click the calendar to create or modify a booking’s room and dates, or drag away to easily cancel a booking.
Slick Media Centre Images are exceptionally easy to upload, and you can upload images for the main asset image, property list slideshow, main property page slideshow and more. Small, medium and large images are created automatically and the slideshow for displaying images is fully responsive.
Calendars Several different calendars for displaying occupancies and arrivals and departures. Whether it’s a villa or hotel, you’ll know at a glance how busy you are.
Amend bookings After a booking has been created, add extras to bookings while the guest is on-site, or completely change the booking’s dates and prices.
Email templates Property managers can customise the email templates to suit their individual properties.
Detailed invoicing Shows all line items, including tax. Additional items added to invoices can have their own tax rates.
Taxes Accommodation and other services can each use their own tax codes.
Guests have their own accounts Their details are remembered from visit to visit.
Guest dashboard This allows them to easily see their bookings, invoices and favourite properties.
Contact form If the guest’s not ready to book right away, they can contact the hotel directly through a simple form instead.
Elegant Property List Shows multiple views including List and Photo views, plus various sorting features and when a guest sets a budget then properties outside that budget are de-emphasised. Offers both infinite scrolling or paging to show search results.
Property comparison page Guests can compare up to 3 properties at a time.
Property feature icons Create by property managers, they can be defined for all property types, or just one property type.
Review functionality Reviews can either be automatically approved or not, guests can input comments and other reviewers can score a review’s helpfulness.
Fully automatic exchange rate conversion No configuration required at all, just request a free API key from OpenExchangeRates and Jomres will download the current rates daily and use them as needed.
Plugins plugins plugins Using our plugin philosophy, all areas of Jomres functionality can be modified. This has helped to breed a healthy and diverse plugin community.
Modular It’s designed to be third party plug-in friendly. See the extension specific plugins page here on the JED, or visit our Partners page.
Google maps well supported Drag and drop pointers or type your address for the pointer to move. Choose to show POI’s or not, and choose a map colour scheme that suits your site’s theme. 30+ map styles so that the maps match your site’s theme.
QR codes in both front and back end facing pages Receptionists can scan a customer’s booking printout and immediately book them in on arrival. Guests can scan QR codes to be taken to directions to the property.
Logging Detailed logging for the data-nerds out there. Extensive log files that are cycled regularly, and logging can be sent to a remote syslog server.
Recaptcha Uses the most modern No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA in contact forms to reduce spam.

If I purchase a license key what happens when the license expires?

Nothing at all. You continue using the software, although you will not be able to download updates to the plugins.

Is there a manual?

Yup, the manual is available to all users. It’s very well documented, and there are video tutorials if you prefer to learn that way.

Is there a demo?

Yes, see here This demo is built in WordPress and uses our extremely popular Leohtian template. You can download a copy of this site as we offer all of our demos as Quickstart packages, which make it very simple and quick to deploy a new Jomres and WordPress installation for your clients.

Where can I get support?

If you’ve got a download and support license you can raise a ticket, and you can also join the Community Forum and ask your questions there.

Reviews

not user-friendly, not clear what has Joomla to do with it

Not clear if this plugin is really for wordpress or rather for Joomla !?!?
Everywhere in the admin area is sais “Joomla” – best joomla plugin, greatest joomla installation etc.

Also, none of those plugins are installed or at least installable, so what is that for !??!
How can I get the ‘ajax_search_composite’ plugin istalled ?!? No clue …

Looks pretty complicated but also sort of messy and not very user-friendly 🙁

Great booking system and team

We started with Jomres when it first started, over 11 years ago .
The program is super. We’ve recently switched from the stand-alone version to the wordpress plugin.
Really all we needs is in the program and we run for years our rental business of apartments very successful thanks to Jomres.

Important is that by a problem they helped . Jomres is as a partner for us! Fast response, and if necessary remote login and help. Absolutely great.

Easy to install, easy to configure, all you need and more

Having used Jomres with Joomla for the last 3 years and therefore becoming intimate with the software, I was keen to make a transition to WordPress for the benefits that WordPress offers in terms of accessibility and breadth of useful functionality whilst also being easy for the end user to maintain after development.

Jomres is a hefty piece of kit and has so much in it. Some of it is superfluous to some applications. You do not require all the bells & whistles for every site. Like any development project we commence, we need to think outside the box and not expect something to come off the shelf to suit our particular site. That’s the difference between a developer and a hobby user.

Get to know the software and understand what needs configuring to provide the functionality required and the system does all you need in a very sweet way.

WordPress to some people is difficult. Perhaps that’s due to inexperience but again, once you get to know the wordpress, you can create excellent sites in your sleep that can knock spots off Joomla in terms of ease of access and maintenance for end users.

Today I installed and configured a new wordpress site and installed & configured 3 hotel properties and made test bookings and tested payments via paypal sandbox within 4 hours of starting.

Jomres on WordPress is a breeze.

Thanks Vince & team, your work is greatly appreciated.

  • Change : Added a tweak to logging to ensure that browser console notification messages aren’t attempted if the call is an API call.
  • Change : Removed a duplicate definition

  • Change : Improved patTemplate dump to show the override path when a cms template override is used

  • Fix : Fixed a bug where registered users can’t create a new property because their access level was set to the wrong value.

Jomres 9.8.19 28/11/2016

  • Feature : Added Markdown handling functionality to Jomres.
    This allows non-super property managers to format text in a simple way without being able to add html to the page. Allowing property managers to enter html in property decriptions is fraught with danger ( Cross site scripting being the main worry), which is why we’ve always defaulted to the most stringent settings on a default installation. This isn’t very friendly for new users, however, or property managers that want to apply some formatting but the site has left the Input Filtering setting to Paranoid. Markdown handling allows non-super managers to add basic formatting to text inputs ( for example Property Details, Checkin times ) without sacrificing security. Two new libraries have been added, one to display a Markdown editor in the Edit Property page ( relevant inputs ) called SimpleMDE and a second ( Parsedown )to parse text before it’s output to the page.
  • Feature : Improved the Media Centre.
    Made media centre drop down buttons larger and gave the primary and secondary dropdowns their own classes to make them stand out more.
    Rooms list added “room” text next to number.
    Removed old image link from the images list, instead resource types are able to offer a “Preview” link, which, if available will show an example of the resource in property page inside a modal.
    Added additional instructions to give clarity for the usage of the buttons.
  • Feature : Added functionality to allow us to show the main menu in selected locations.
    This allows us to show the Jomres main menu in other places ( See Shortcodes info page ). It doesn’t disable the menu from displaying in the Jomres content area, however.

  • Change : Jomres Core files updated to use PSR2 coding standards.

  • Change : Show plugins, Upgrade button renamed to Update.
  • Change : Modified input filtering to preserve line breaks in text that’s saved to the database. Related to Markdown.
  • Change : API updated to log an error instead of output it.
  • Change : Added cms specific function to get username by id.
  • Change : Modified the license message position in plugin manager.
  • Change : Minor language file tweak for th-TH.
  • Change : Added new property features classes.
  • Change : Completely rebuilt Jomres user roles. Receptionist access level changed from 1 -> 50, manager 2->70, super property manager was having access level 2 and pu set to 1, now it`s 90. Provides scope for future improvements.

  • Fix : Fixed a typo that prevented us from adding new users in Joomla when making a booking.

  • Fix : Resolved an issue with users being unable to add new property types.
  • Fix : Modified call to Mobile_Detect class, to check that the class doesn’t already exist ( other extensions use the same class, so this could cause conflicts ).
  • Fix : Modified contact owner so that the template has it’s own version of placeholders that don’t have javascript that will cause confusion if the editing mode is enabled.
  • Fix : Fixed a query that was failing in some cases, thanks Rod ( Invoices class ).
  • Fix : Solved resource/room cloning problem.
  • Fix : Fixed a notice for users that deleted all tax rates.

Jomres 9.8.18 11/11/2016

  • Change : Resolved an issue where cron jobs were throwing notices on installation/upgrade.
  • Change : Modified the registry class to remove javascript caches whenever the registry is rebuilt.
  • Change : Added performance improvements to list reviews script in admin area.
  • Change : Added functionality that detects the type of device, if device is not a desktop then drag and dropping of bookings isn’t allowed. Fat fingered souls rejoice!
  • Change : Tourist tax plugin code added to the core of the system.
  • Change : Added tweaks to WP url handling to avoid some wp redirectsion from non-sef to sef urls
  • Change : Added minor tweaks to cron class for layout and checking if a variable is empty.
  • Change : Fixed a couple of notices that can show in the dashboard if a booking is moved into a room where there are no tariffs for said room’s type.
  • Change : Modified property header to use the property description in the meta data if meta data isn’t set.
  • Change : Added a couple of tweaks to new marker related functionality that allows for how handling of deleted markers is handled.
  • Change : Updated control panel welcome language strings.
  • Change : Show Profiles page renamed to Property Managers ( Administrator area page ).
  • Change : Minor layout tweak to control panel message output.
  • Change : Updated the key check to correctly return false if a key’s state can’t always be determined.
  • Change : Added a license status message to the plugin manager.
  • Change : Removed plugin check from sys info script.
  • Change : Added an option to have a blank commission rate to the commission rate dropdown.

Jomres 9.8.17 04/11/2016

  • Feature : Added functionality to allow different map markers. Allows us to assign different map markers for different property types and for them to show ( naturally ) on the extended maps map.
  • Feature : Added a longtext class and appropriate javascript so that tab contents can be limited to N characters.
  • Feature : Updated the ajax notification loader. Previously it was configured to change the cursor on ajax activity, however mobile devices don’t have cursors, so swapped it out for a nice font awesome spinner instead. Now users can see the the ajax search is doing something. Likewise, property managers can see the activity notification.

  • Change : Added full Jomres version to relevant files.

  • Change : Reverted a recent change to an API script vis directory scanning as API doesn’t always have access to Jomres framework so the custom scandir function will not be available.
  • Change : Removed some trailing ?> from files.
  • Change : Polish changed to be without BOM
  • Change : Modified a setting description in site config to be more CMS agnostic.
  • Change : Fixed a typo linking to deligence.

  • Change : Added a tweak to decode apostrophes to their proper form in email subjects.
  • Change : Tweaked tabletools handling so that when clicking on xls link the page name is used when naming the file.
  • Change : Booking confirmation page updated, amend booking element changed from a submit button to a link. It doesn’t need to be a submit form, and it’s recently stopped redirecting back to the booking form.
  • Change : Tweaked a search query that sorts properties in descending order. Removed that ordering.
  • Change : Added trimming to property names in photo view only to preserve photo view page layout.

  • Fix : Removed caching from property uids, solves a language switcher problem in admin cpanel
  • Fix : Testing a tweak to jomresURL function. Joomla 3.6.3 routing has changed how urls are returned, causing issues with various forms being built incorrectly.

Jomres 9.8.15 18/10/2016

  • Feature : Added filesystem integrity check feature.

  • Change : Improved caching of geolocation caching, seems our performance problems were caused by throttling by the remote service.

  • Change : Added a new input filter results cache for testing.
  • Change : Added further speed improvements to registry. Also made the registry readable. We just include_once, no more unserialize on each page load.
  • Change : Added small change to get property names multi so that even without caching the query won`t be executed more times on the same page for the same property uids
  • Change : Modified how property names are found. Performance improvement.
  • Change : Modified functionality so that on redirect we explicitly close database connections. All the documentation says we shouldn’t need to, but this is a test to see if we can reduce the number of connections left open.
  • Change : Replaced scandir with more efficient home-rolled function.
  • Change : Improved an estimate generation method in the booking engine, major speed improvement for properties with many tariffs.

  • Change : Added colours to invoice labels status.
  • Change : Improved English language API key directions to provide urls to servers.

  • Change : Modified exchange rate handling functionality so that if we can’t d/l data, we still build a partial file. This prevents various parts of the system re-trying to rebuild this data, we’ll just have to accept that for today, we can’t convert prices. When the system tries again the next day, more complete data should be available.
  • Change : Added code to die if the call is a heartbeat call from the booking engine then just die, further processing is pointless.

  • Fix : Changed booking engine so that if deposit required is first night then tax is properly included in the price.

  • Fix : Resolved a problem with editing properties in WP
  • Fix : Added a change to how property features are saved in the db as it was affecting property cloning.

  • WordPress : Added calls to jomres/classes/jomres_database.class.php so that we can monitor WP DB usage.
  • WordPress : Check if we are in admin area…so that in wp it wont happen that the framework.php is loaded (because of wp plugins which use actions like 'init' which are available also in admin area - this doesnt happen on joomla) and does the queries/stuff instead of admin.php.

Jomres 9.8.14 05/10/2016

  • Change : Added a number of changes to get around the Mysql 5.7 Strict NO_ZERO_DATES limitation.
  • Change : Removed Joomla3.x specific versions of library files, which were created back in 2012 in anticipation of more significant version changes given Joomla’s past history of significant backward compatability changes. As J3.x is now much more B/C friendly these are no longer required. The downside is that anybody running a very old version of J3.x might have problems running Jomres, but in this day and age it’s trivially easy to upgrade Joomla.
  • Change : Added changes relating to how we cleanup sessions.
  • Change : Improved and simplified the media centre class.

  • Change : Added some friendly notes to property creation.
  • Change : Modified how gateway plugins are validated to allow another plugin to work differently while still maintaining security.

  • Change : Removed some redundant data from a call to process payments.
  • Change : Improved installer to test for dirs before attempting to create them.
