The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™


byLucien_VRN, July 6, 2012
I am completely new to Joomla and set up a website using V2.5, to replace an old site I had purchased that had been set up with V1.5 and some now defunct property admin software. I particularly wanted something dynamic, attractive and with a comprehensive feature-set for search (number of bedrooms, facilities, region, price etc) and also a product that would showcase individual properties. The list view, photo view, modal pop-up and full property views in Jomres do all those things very well.

Although Jomres is specifically designed for hotel rooms its advertising blurb and example site showed villas as well, and having looked at a few other offerings Jomres appeared to be the best fit for my needs.

On a level of difficulty I'd say that you need to be 'reasonably experienced' to get the best out of it and the Help manual assumes a certain level of programming/coding knowledge. However, persist with it and you do get the results.

Support has been good, particularly when my first site went live earlier this week and 'real life' + human users threw up some issues and challenges, my support requests were answered virtually immediately, you can't ask for more than that.

So in summary...bit of a steep learning curve for a newbie but great end result, very pleased.
