The market is full of accommodation/restaurant booking portal Joomla template, but the majority of them are only for building ‘prototype’ websites with many ‘custom HTML’ modules, not a real dynamic and functional website because there is no real integration with a real accommodation/restaurant booking extension like Solidres and RMS. Porta is the first template that we made specifically for accommodation or restaurant booking portal site, all in a single installation package. It is designed to work with Hub plugin (for accommodation site) and RMS MULTI (for restaurant site), it is available as a separated purchase here: Solidres HUB, RMS MULTI.
For active HUB subscribers, we released a new Locations module which you can download from your Download section, it can show a list of locations (cities) in front end dynamically using Masonry layout and it is fully responsive. Although it was designed mainly for Porta, it can be used with any of our other Joomla templates.
For active RMS subscribers, there is a new RMS MULTI subscription level for users who want to build a restaurant booking portal site. There are 03 new modules for Portal template subscribers: Search, Locations, and Restaurants.
More information can be found on the Porta subscription page, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us.
Our RMS (Restaurant Management System) version 1.2.0 has been released with the following new features:
Shifts: define flexible opening and closing hours for each weekday. Multiple shifts per day are supported.
Turn times: configure the maximum period your guests can use a table before it is being made available for other reservations. Turn time can be defined differently per shift.
Special days: close a day or configure a special day which has different shifts than a normal day.
In addition to that, we also released a new RMS edition for building a restaurant booking portal site called RMS MULTI. This edition allows your guest can check multiple restaurants in a location (city) for table availability and make their own reservation with their favorite restaurant.
Changelog details can be found in your RMS download section, if you need more information please visit our RMS subscription page or don’t hesitate to contact us.
