Application Methods 1.3.0
Last week we released an update to the Application Methods extension, by now you should already see an update notification in your wp-admin panel, if not then go to the wp-admin / Dashboard / Updates panel and click the “Check Again” button the update should show then.
The new release has a few important changes:
When the “Apply Online” button is disabled for a job, the application form is completely removed from the page HTML code, so now even bots scanning the website cannot submit it.
We added a backward compatibility option in the wp-admin / Settings (WPJB) / Application Methods panel, if enabled then the default job application method (as if the AM extension was not installed at all) will be used if no application methods are selected.
This can be handy if you have already dozens of jobs on-site and are installing the AM extension now, you can enable this option and do not have to update the application methods manually for each job.
The Application Methods interface also got a small facelift so it takes a little less space now
Importing from CSV and XML
It is also now possible to import the application methods when importing from CSV or XML file (it used to be possible earlier as well but the application methods needed to be in a computer-readable mode which made it difficult for the users).
You can read more about the changes in version 1.3.0 in the Application Methods documentation.
