Version 3.3.5 released

It took quite a bit of time to release version 3.3.5, but finally it’s here ready to download. Unlike in other minor releases there are two new cool features in 3.3.5 worth mentioning.

WPJobBoard Health Check

WPJB requires some directories (including session save directory) to be writable. Previously my build script set correct CHMOD on all directories and i expected the write permissions will be always correct. Unfortunately that’s sometimes not the case, so i came up with idea for WPJobBoard Health Check.

Health Check is a simple script that checks if all directories are writable, if not it displays to admin flash message explaining the problems so admin can quickly fix it.

Coupon usage limits

Second new feature is a limit of maximum numbers of coupon usage and coupon expiration date. Recently i did a small experiment and found out that coupon codes are more likely to be used if there is some element of scarcity in play, like maximum number of usues or explicit expiration date, so i decided to include such feature in WPJB.

    Hi, i am planning one more theme, but not earlier then within 3 or 4 months. The new functionality will be added within month or two (but i am not sure exactly), there will be a ton of new functionality the WPJobBoard zip file already grew about 10% in size :).

    You can of course use WPJB on your test/development server, as for updates i am planning 1 or 2 major updates each year, plus smaller updates for bug fixes – the updates are free.

    Any news on this matter? 🙂

  4. I hope to get version 3.4 released by the end of the month, but do not hold me on to that.
