Improved Files Security – WPJobBoard 5.10.0

WPJobBoard 5.10.0 was just released and you should see an update notification in your wp-admin panel within 24 hours max.

If you don’t notice it then go to the wp-admin / Dashboard / Updates panel and click the “Check Again” button it should show then.

Improved Files Security

The main new feature in version 5.10 is new file security settings, you can find them in the wp-admin / Settings (WPJB) / Files Security.

It allows for hashing the file paths and moving the files to a location that is unavailable from the browser. These settings are especially used for websites that are using a server different than Apache (Apache server has a mod-rewrite module that secures the files automatically and we have been doing this automatically for the past 10 years or so).

That said even if you are on the Apache server you can enable the Files Security and customize the files security settings to your needs.

You can learn more about this new feature and how to use it in the knowledge base.
