    I still hack bits now and then though, and there are areas of our's unfinished, but the main thing is it has alot of potential. Even then, the vanilla version still does the basic job (and will still be far improved than the paper system you have now).

    Screenshots below are actually of MRBS, just with ALOT of modification! I added a completely new module so that you get an account section when you login, and an area where you can see all your bookings (overview).
    Very nice - we use MRBS, customized ours too - but I'm not too good with styles so ours is still a basic style with simple modifications. I like your style and script mods. :-)

    Out of curiosity, what's Student Network Status?

    Good work anyhow!

    I'm not brilliant on styling with html myself (it just serves a purpose really, no fancy css or anything)! The script itself as I uploaded is actually very basic, as was definately welcomed by staff as an easy way just to "check" if they have booked a room and forgot (to save trawling through all the rooms or the horrible report feature)!
    I must confess that the theme is downloadable from oswd.org here, so I take no credit for that, only for integrating it (with some difficulty) with MRBS!

    Student network status on the screen is nothing to do with MRBS - it's just a link there as I am using the user database from MRBS (we don't have AD authentication), given that we only wanted staff to see it - was easier using MRBS authentication!

    It is going off the original query of the OP though to find a suitable system. Whilst MRBS is good (because it's free!), it isn't necessarily 100% suitable in it's vanilla state for everyone. webman's system, although never tried by myself, does seem to be orientated towards the school environment (especially the 2-week timetabling, which I desperately would like in mrbs)!

    We currently use Room Booking Software Cyberforth Room Booking System Home

    Personally i find it very fiddly when setting up timetabled rooms but this is down to the fact that we run a two week timetable at school and holidays influence which week we start back on (it doesnt carry on from what we ended on!!!) Because of this we have to (re)create the timetable structure every term

    Obviously any room booking system would suffer because of this, but I have used the Devizes one at a previous and it is a darn sight easier to manage/administer IMHO

    Sounds way overpriced to me considering there are so many OS options (MRBS, Classroombookings, bob, and something i'm developing).

    Also your website is broken under IE8.
