JobRoller Version 1.6.2

On July 18th, 2012, JobRoller 1.6.2 was released. This is a maintenance and security release. It addresses a handful of bugs and adds some new features. Upgrading is highly recommended for all 1.6 customers. Fixed 25 tickets total. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

Changes include, new option do display Indeed listing before or after database jobs, featured jobs now displaying contextually on taxonomy pages (by category, by type, etc…), and location search speed optimization.

Important Note

We are preparing to replace get_template_part() with require() on data validation pages (submit-job-process.php, confirm-job-process.php, etc). Please do not use these files on child themes as they will become obsolete on future releases. New hooks will be provided to allow changes.

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.
