JobRoller Version 1.6.5

On January 14th, 2012, JobRoller 1.6.5 was released. This is a maintenance and WordPress 3.5 compatibility release. Upgrading is highly recommended for all 1.6 customers. Fixed 23 tickets total. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.


Due to changes in WordPress 3.5, related with the load_theme_textdomain() behavior, the text domain for all the strings has changed from ‘appthemes‘ to ‘jobroller‘ (represented by the APP_TD constant). This change impacts child themes as they also need to reflect this change on all the text strings. Simply replace all occurrences of ‘appthemes‘ with APP_TD (no quotes or double quotes) to migrate the strings to the new text domain.

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.
