Summary module preview

We’d like to share a preview of the Summary module, one of the new features that will be included in Solidres for Joomla 2.11.0. This module is developed to increase the Solidres’s usability and user-friendly, especially in mobile devices. Please check the video below to get an overview of this new module:

This video was recorded in Joomla 4 Beta 3, we’ve put a lot of effort to improve Bootstrap 4 support for Solidres, and the result can be seen in the video.

Solidres for Joomla 2.11.0 will require PHP 7.2 as minimum requirement therefore please consider upgrading your PHP version as soon as you can to get the best performance and features. If your hosting does not offer PHP 7.2+, please run away from them as soon as you can as this is a big sign of a bad hosting provider. We also noticed some of our users can not upgrade PHP because one of their installed Joomla extensions is not compatible with the latest PHP versions: please uninstall it right away as it is a sign of a bad extension, please only install actively developed and well maintained extensions.

How to create a touchless online menu with RMS

The benefits of an online restaurant menu are undeniable, including:

  • Reducing the printing cost
  • Environment friendly
  • Updating the menu without re-printing
  • Safer for both customers and staff: the online menu can limit cross-contamination from sharing the physical menu. It is especially important with the current COVID-19 pandemic

In this blog post, we will show you how to create a touchless online menu with our RMS component through some simple steps:

Step 1: Create online menu item

In your Joomla backend, create a menu item with the type “Restaurant Management System (RMS) > E-menus” and publish it. Then copy the menu URL for the next step.

Step 2: Generate QR code

Use an online QR code generator tool (there are many good choices, choose the one that you feel comfortable to work with), then generate your desired QR code from the URL copied from step 1. We’d like to suggest this one:

https://www.qr-code-generator.com/

Step 3: Print the QR code

Print your QR code and put them in your restaurant’s places like tables, doors.

Tips: if you want to show an online menu layout only without your website template, then you can use this URL:

https://YOUR_WEBSITE/index.php?option=com_rms&view=menus&layout=emenus&property_id=X&tmpl=component

In the above URL, replace X with your property ID in “property_id=X”, for example, if your RMS property ID is 10, then the final link will look like this:

https://YOUR_WEBSITE/index.php?option=com_rms&view=menus&layout=emenus&property_id=10&tmpl=component

We hope this blog post could be useful for you, stay safe and healthy!
