We have received a lot of requests for heads-upon the future updates of the themes. And we thought it’s a good idea to share to you what we’re cooking for our themes for their near future versions. Gladly, our plan for this March is ready and we’re excited to let you know.

Note: Although the above plan is for March and we always do our best to meet our target release date, some unexpected circumstances may sometimes push things to not end up as we wanted. Therefore, you should not schedule your projects based on our target plan.

We’re also collecting ideas for our next project plans. We’re curious to see which themes you would like us to create in the future. Share your ideas with us in our Forums.

    Dear Anh,

    This is one of best step ET has taken in order for the job portal and other website owners to plan ahead, considering slack with what you have shown.

    In addition, I am happy to see that you really have something better in your plan in terms of new features.

    Please keep up same and consider following features in your future plan;

    1. Expiry message for any JOB which has expired, and showing some recommendations, so that, Visitors doesn’t jumps out of the portal or get expired content. This is very important feature considering SEO ranking

    2. Ability to upload resume in word/pdf. This has been long awaited feature and has been asked by many users, but still awaited. I hope you have something for this feature.

    3. More Jobs Matching Profile or search criteria. Though I have implemented this feature using a third party plugin, but wish to have same features in the base of the theme.

    4. Suggested earlier as well, Ability to push jobs to Indeed and Simplyhired.

    5. Suggested earlier as well, and very important for Job Portals, is Auto Post to major Social Plateforms and Professionals plateforms. Though I have implemented this feature through third party but wish to have this feature in-built in the theme or even as plugin would be appreciated.

    Many more I have in mind, but as requested earlier for dedicated dashboards which still not implemented by ET, why to give you more burden.

    I hope theses features could get some space in your near future plans.

      personally I don’t think this is the best use of their time, there are already plugins for WP that do this, check out http://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=nextend+connect

    Hi Anh,

    This is really a great step that you have took to keep us informed about upcoming great features.

    I love to see Rego and job post on mobile version, these are great features.

    I strongly agree with Mallick’s points 1 and 2, specially point ONE is vital for SEO ranking. I have a suggestion for point one if you consider;

    “It will be ideal if JE can remove “APPLY FOR THIS JOB” button from an expired job and replace it with just a message like [This Job has Expired] and don’t archive an expired job”

    This will save from a lot of 404 ‘page not found’ errors when Google try to find an expired job.

    I also have a new feature request which I have put forward previously but was ignored saying ‘it will lower UX’

    Requested feature was to introduce a CAPTCHA for all JE forms.

    Please consider to implement it in future updates as it will save us from spammers.

    Bravo Team

    Hi there, will you be fixing the JE Indeed plugin error this month? When importing jobs from the United Arab Emirates, (Dubai, Abu Dhabi..etc), it imports jobs from Turkey instead… Please confirm? Nhu said you will, but I do not see it mentioned above?

      Hi Hamza, don’t worry. JE Indeed v4.0 is in our release plan this March. And we will also check for the issue you mention above.

      Hi @disqus_omBIKyF2p9:disqus, JobEngine is a job board software which does allow you to build an online job portal. Do you mean something different by “a full loaded online job portal”?

    What happened to Hotelpress? We paid for this theme and now it´s all changed and I can´t even get on the forum anymore with my original logon details? I would appreciate if someone could tell me how we can update our site to the new version of Hotelpress (now Hotelengine apparently). Thanks.
