4.4.1 Responsive wp-admin and File Uploads

WPJobBoard 4.4.1 has been just released, and you should be able to get either using automatic updates or from client panel.

Responsive wp-admin panel.

Until now job board wp-admin did not behave well, when viewing it using mobile device, this was fixed and now all the WPJB pages in wp-admin panel are responsive and you can manage your job board using mobile device just as good as when viewing it using desktop.

Drag and drop file uploads.

Uploading files especially when sending job applications is a crucial part of job board, yet usually no one likes to do it, you click on the button, search for a file on your system and then upload it. With new drag and drop file uploads users can just drag a file from their computer into browser window and have it uploaded, it’s easy, takes a lot less time to do and will definitely encourage users to fill job application forms.

Linking files from Media Library.

On the image above you can also see “media library …” button, this will allow users to use a file already uploaded into Media Lbrary, if you are using the same logos for most of the jobs this will allow you to save a lot of disk space and make selecting files even faster ( Download Woocommerce Plugins ).

Note that the “media library …” button will show only to users with upload_files capability (basically Administator and Editor), if you want to make it visible to other users as well, you need to grant upload_files capability to this roles.

Uploading files from Dropbox

If this is not easy enough, we also prepared a free add-on which will allow your users upload files directly from their Dropbox account. This is a must have add-on if your users are often applying from mobile devices, they usually do not have files there, but have the file on their Dropbox account.
