JobRoller Version 1.8.5

On January 6th, 2016, JobRoller 1.8.5 was released. This is a maintenance release that addresses some issues found on the last release and some missed incompatibilities with WordPress 4.4 and PHP7. Updating is highly recommended. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

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.


  • Switched Recaptcha request method from POST to Curl (was incompatible with some servers)
  • User password changes without request from the user
  • Some incompatibilities with new PHP7


  • Changed http to https for social and AppThemes links
