JobRoller Version 1.5.3

On January 10th, 2012, JobRoller 1.5.3 was released. This is a maintenance and feature release. It addresses a handful of bugs and adds some new features. Upgrading is recommended for all 1.5 customers. Fixed 12 tickets total. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

The most notable change is the introduction of manual recurring payments to subscribe to resumes. This solves the problem with site owners that do not have PayPal business or premier account not being able to offer resumes subscriptions. 

The new feature works by allowing users to make manual timed payments to browse resumes during fixed time periods. Subscriptions can now be managed by site administrator on a dedicated dashboard page.

There’s also a new option that replaces Job Seeker’s contact details with a contact form on individual resumes page. This should help to reduce spamming on your website.

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.
