Solidres v0.9.0 development updates

March has been an exciting month for us, so far we have released Solidres for Joomla v0.8.1 and the initial public Solidres for WordPress v0.1.0 Beta 1. At this moment we are focusing on the upcoming Solidres for Joomla v0.9.0, this release will highlight 2 long awaited features:

  • Backend reservation creation for hotel staff
  • Feedback plugin

Along side with them, there will be improvements and bug fixes as well as other new features. This version is targeted for April release, but the plan could be changed if it need more time to be fine-tuned. Please stay tuned for more news.

Solidres for WordPress v0.1.0 BETA 1 is released


Since our announcement in Sep 2014, we have worked very hard to develop Solidres for WordPress and now it is time for the first public release. You can download it in our Downloads section or see the demo.

The features set of Solidres for WordPress v0.1.0 BETA 1 is almost the same with Solidres for Joomla v0.7.2. We are still working to keep it up to date with Solidres for Joomla v0.8.1. This release is considered as BETA, therefore it should be used for testing purpose only. We are also working to bring commercial features to WordPress as well, please stay tuned.

Below is a quick installation procedure:

  • Download Solidres_Wordpress_Full_Package_0.1.0_BETA_1.zip
  • Install it like a normal WordPress plugin
  • Go to menu Systems – Install sample data to get some data ready for testing
  • Create 02 WordPress pages:
    • The first page should have the same slug with your asset’s alias.
    • The second page will be served as a “Reservation completed” page.
  • Go to menu Systems – Settings – Pages and select the first page for field “Single asset”, then select the second page for field “Reservation completed”.
  • Go to menu Settings – Permalinks and choose a setting which is different than the default one.
  • Go to Appearance – Menus and insert the first page into your WordPress menu.

Until the stable release, we still have a lot of works to do. If you found any issues, let us know by posting in our forum.
