WordPress 4.9 and WPJobBoard
The WPJB version 5.0.4 was just released, this version of our job board has few minor fixes and one major one to fix the compatibility with the latest version of WordPress.
Here is what we changed in the latest release:
File Upload – After upgrading to WP 4.9 you might be having a problem with uploading job or company logos and avatars, if so then upgrade will fix this problem.
Employer Panel Job Posting – Fixed users ability to post a job from Employer Panel without being logged in as an Employer. Additionally, when posting a job from Employer Panel we changed the steps (“Create Ad | Preview | Publish”) to use the Employer Panel breadcrumbs instead.
Job Alerts – There was a bug in job alerts which looped sending one email alert over and over again, this happened only if the alert had a lot of matching jobs.
Disable Registration – If you trash and unset registration pages from wp-admin / Settings (WPJB) / Default Pages and URLs panel then “Not a member? Register” links will not be shown in WPJB login forms, this basically allows quickly disabling registration on your site.
Email Notifications Fallbacks – the notify_applicant_status_change and notify_employer_new_job email templates have now fallback emails. What i mean by this is that if the email is not provided in Job or Applications Form then if the job or application is posted by logged in user then the email from user profile will be used instead.
Along with WPJB 5.0.4 we are also releasing a new version (1.5.3) of Jobeleon job board theme.
