WPJobBoard 4.2 (Frontend Templates Redesigned)
New WPJobBoard version was just released. The main change you will notice in the new update are completely refreshed frontend templates (the source code for old ones was almost 4 years old now). How does the WPJB look with new templates you can check on the demo site. Aside of the templates update the new release has also only multiple bug fixes (reported and/or found by QA team).
This is a first step in frontend improvments and you can expect soon more changes that will make WPJB more user friendly and intuitive.
Important Note. Before updating make sure that you are not using WPJobBoard child templates (that is you do not have any files in wp-content/themes/your-theme/wpjobboard directory). If you do then the child templates might not be fully compatible with new update, there are two ways you can solve this issue:
- Inspect the new template files and update your child templates accordingly, this is recommended method although might require some PHP/HTML knowledge.
- Download and install on your site wpjobboard-old-theme plugin, it will downgrade your template files to version 4.1.4, so basically your templates will not change, but you will be running latest WPJB version. This is easier to do, but the old theme will not be developed further, so you will need to upgrade template files (use the first method) in future anyway.
How do i know if i am using child templates? As a rule of a thumb, if you do not know what are child templates and we did NOT made a customization for you, then there is 99% chance that your site is not using child templates and you can upgrade with ease.
