JobRoller Version 1.6

On May 19th, 2012, JobRoller 1.6 (our WordPress job board theme) was released. This is a major release. It addresses a handful of bugs and adds many new features. Upgrading is recommended for all 1.5 customers. Fixed 4 tickets total. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

This version brings one of the more requested features on the Ideas Exchange, Job Alerts. Job seekers can now set alerts based on specific criteria and receive email notifications.

One of the main reasons this feature was not yet implemented was due to the limitations some web hosts impose on mass email. We decided that the best way to enable this feature would be to give site owners as many options as possible so each user could tweak the email depending on their host limitations. That’s exactly what we did.

Site owners can change settings like the number of emails to send at a given time, the number of jobs to send on each email and how often to send the job alerts. The email is also fully customizable, and can be sent in plain text, basic HTML or using an ordinary HTML template file. Because there’s always the possibility for site owners to not be able to send mass emails for some reason we’ve also added job alerts RSS feeds notifications.

Enabling this option will give each user it’s own unique RSS feed representing his unique job alerts criteria. Job seekers can use this feed to subscribe to a 3d party “feed to email” service like Feed My Inbox or FeedBurner or subscribe it as a normal RSS feed.

Other features include a complete job packs redesign and the addition of new options to allow a more seamless integration with all the site functionality. Packs can now be purchased from the dashboard and configured to be displayed on specific job categories, allow access to browse/view Resumes, offer free jobs, or enable job listers to feature jobs for free.

There’s also an option to limit the times a free pack can be used by each user so site owners can give their users the complete site experience for a limited time.

Lastly, this version adds several new hooks that will enable the use of additional job feeds plugins like Simply Hired, as well as theme customizations. More details on these soon.

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 zip file.
