Additionally, each email alert has an internal log assigned. The log shows when the alert was executed and which jobs were matched to it.

Jobs Cloning – in wp-admin / Job Board panel when editing a job, at the top (next to “Add New” button) you will notice a “Clone” button. Clicking it will redirect you to Add New job page. The form on this page will have all the job information including uploaded files filled.

Never Expiring Pricings – in wp-admin / Settings (WPJB) / Pricing panel you can enter “0” in the Visibility or Duration field. When user will purchase such job posting or membership his job or membership will be active forever (or at least until disabled by administrator).

Payments History – in the Employer Panel there is a new tab “Payments History” available. It shows the user payments history. In the future, we will be connecting it to some invoicing plugin to allow users to get invoices for their payments.

As usual, the small release includes a dozen of bug fixes and small improvements:

  • FEATURE: Validating Google Jobs mapping before saving.
  • FEATURE: Discard and Cancel fields in the Google Jobs mapping.
  • FEATURE: A notification when a user is viewing expired job page.
  • FIXED Google Jobs widget not counting correctly filled fields in job edition.
  • FIXED: ReCAPTCHA not showing in Candidate Registration.
  • FIXED: Looping JS alert() when entering an incorrect name in custom fields editor.
  • FIXED: Search and pagination in [wpjb_resumes_list] not working.
  • FIXED: The complete payment page showing a fatal error.
  • FIXED: Text domain loaded too late.
  • FIXED: Browse jobs by category page not showing correct listings.
  • FIXED: “Unread Applications” icon not showing in Employer Dashboard

Jobeleon Updates

The Jobeleon received a huge SEO update and downloading it is highly recommended as in some cases there is a chance it will noticeably improve your search engine positions.  We did that by removing the header (H{1-6}) tags from the sidebar widgets.

The other changes are mainly WPJB 5.0 compatibility improvements, so if you are using WPJB 5.0 this is an update you should definitely get.
