JobRoller Version 1.8

On Friday May 15th, 2015, JobRoller 1.8 was released. This is a major release with significant changes, performance improvements, security patch for a potential XSS vulnerability, and bug fixes.

If you’re using a child theme purchased from our Marketplace, we strongly recommend you contact the seller to make sure it’s been updated to work with this version BEFORE upgrading your website.  

It you’re using your own customized child theme you’ll need to update your template files to mirror the new changes in 1.8. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

More Modern

This major release bring a much needed design overhaul throughout the whole theme. On the backend we’ve replaced the old settings page with our new settings API, with richer descriptions and new tooltips and replaced all icon sprites with font icons. We’ve also made all the table listings responsive, so that most of columns are hidden on small screens, mirroring the default WP behavior.

We’ve moved all JobRoller’s appearance settings to the WordPress Customizer and added many new options to allow easy tweaking of the theme, with live preview. It’s now easier to have a unique theme customized by yourself.

On the front end we’ve made JobRoller look more modern by switching to a more flat design, without the old style shadows and we’ve added a fancy new multi column footer. All images were also replaced with font icons. These changed don’t only make JobRoller look better, it should also help your site load a little faster.

This version also changes the way how the front page displays. The old option Front Page Displays: Your latest posts was replaced with Front Page Displays: A Static Page Site, and site owners now have separate options for the number of jobs displayed on front page and jobs displayed on other listing pages.

Besides the visual changes, new features include custom fields for Resumes and new Importer feature, to import jobs from .csv files, with or without attachments. Please see the new ‘examples’ folder bundled with JobRoller to see how the .csv file must be structured.

There are much more new features so we suggest you go through the changelog to check them all. Please, remember, before upgrading, make sure your child theme is ready for 1.8!

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.
