Porta – Unique template for Accommodation and Restaurant booking portal site

Porta Joomla Template

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.

Core Team and community members have put a lot of effort into it, especially the new Privacy Suite which is the highlight of this release. We’ve completed the integration with Joomla! 3.9 new Privacy Suite, when Joomla! 3.9 Stable released, we will release a new Solidres version which has full support for it. We strongly recommend all users to use the new Privacy Suite instead of other 3rd extensions.
