JobRoller Version 1.5.2

On December 8th, 2011, JobRoller 1.5.2 was released. This is a maintenance release and addresses a handful of bugs. Upgrading is recommended for all 1.5 customers. Fixed 14 tickets total. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

The most notable change is with language (.mo) files. If you use JobRoller in any language besides English, this affects you. The .mo file must be renamed and relocated to a new folder. So instead of placing the .mo file in /wp-content/themes/jobroller/ it should go in /wp-content/languages/themes/.

Read the Using Theme Language Files tutorial on how to do this.

Upgrade Information

Now you can automatically upgrade directly from your WordPress admin. Under “Appearance” => “Themes”, you’ll see an upgrade link next to JobRoller. If you don’t, check back later. The AppThemes upgrade check API runs twice a day. It’s important to note that using this auto updater will overwrite any custom coding done to the theme. Customers who have made theme code changes will need to manually upgrade instead.

If you prefer the old fashion way or have made core theme modifications (which is not recommended), visit AppThemes to download the full version.
