IRMCMS - Single Source of Content

Descriptive unit content entered into the RDP data base using IRMCMS can be displayed on a customer's' marketing site, on the IRM, in RDPWin and used by the HomeAway Interface. This allows a single source of descriptions and photos for all these unit content consumers.

From the RDPWin IRM.Net/Configuration 'Photos' tab, select the photo display method from the 'Photo View Type' radio buttons. See an example of the 'Display overly window with thumbnails and full-sized photo on hover' method by clicking the Photos link of any room on this IRM demo.

RDPWin Room Detail

Configure and click on 'URL' to view unit descriptive content (IRM.Net must be configured to use IRMCMS content).
Set the room detail URL field to 'http://<domain>/irmnet/res/details.aspx?roomkey=<room number>'. Replace <domain> with the actual irm server domain, for example irm.resortdata.com, and <room number> with the unit's room number. A sample resulting url would be: http:irm.resortdata.com/irment/res/resdetails.aspx?roomkey=121. (Query parameters resort= and path= can be added as needed.)
