WPJobBoard 3.4.0 released
As i promised on Friday, WPJobBoard 3.4.0 was released today, and it’s a recommended version to use if you are starting a new job board. If you are looking to upgrade your current WPJobBoard 3.X to version 3.4 feel free to do so if and only if you didn’t make any modifications in WPJobBoard source code or templates files. On the other hand if you made some modifications/changes it’s very important that you read migration guide (more details in changelog).
What’s new in version 3.4.0?
First of all, long awaited resumes in the frontend. Both job seekers and employers can register/login and manage their “things” in the frontend. As always with WPJobBoard the experience for users is seamless since WPJB is using your Theme CSS on user pages.
Next, huge feature is ability to manage job applications by administrator or employer who posted a job. Employer/admin can accept/reject job application, view attachements, read applicant message etc. The idea is that employer can manage application from the web instead of going through hundreds of emails. Also, the application won’t get lost in case email won’t be delivered for some reason.
Small improvement is ability to assign a color to job type. This is pretty popular feature among job boards, so i decided to add it since it did not require a lot of work.
If you are looking to setup job board for a client then here is a good news for you. All WPJobBoard templates were rewritten, to make them as transparent as possible. Many HTML tags got CSS clasess so it will be easier for non-programmers to apply CSS to WPJB without modifying any files. Finally each template file starts with short documentation and list of variables that can be used in the template.
As every new release, this one contains few bug fixes.
