Thanks to some feedbacks we’re able to catch those other bugs looming around JobEngine. No new feature for JobEngine v2.3.2, just finer refinements to fix issues on automatic expiration of jobs, email templates, jobseeker account, and other sections.

Anonymous profiles remain anonymous to Privileged companies.

As we define it, Privileged companies are those that receive job applications from jobseekers. So regardless if a privileged company has a premium account or not, it should be able to see all details in an applicant’s resume.

Expiry dates are not set correctly; jobs expire 1 day after expiry date.

One customer queried about delays on auto-archiving. Okay, let’s say the job’s expiration is 1 day.

The job stays active for full 24 hours and has to wait for the next scheduled run time to get archived. So if I posted a job at 3pm yesterday, it may not expire at 3pm today. If the next scheduled run time for auto-archiving is tomorrow at 7am, it’s when the job will be archived.

So as to avoid further confusion on how the auto-archive works, we added more scheduled run time. From one schedule, the auto-archive will now run six times a day.

In addition, we made some changes on how expiry dates are reset on renewed or republished archived, draft, rejected, and active jobs.

Jobseeker account can post a job.

“This is crazy! I can’t see any Post-a-Job button in my page,” a jobseeker may cry out.

Don’t freak out. This happens when a jobseeker clicks the Post-a-Job button before he logs in. Remember, the login prompt when you post a job is on Step 2. After logging in, the page displays the job information form. If the jobseeker still attempts to post a job and clicks Continue, an error message “You need an employer account to post a job” appears on screen.

Jobseekers cannot post jobs - WordPress job board theme, job board software JobEngine

Edits in email templates do not appear in emails.

When you edit an email template both in jobs and resume sections, the changes are saved but do not reflect on the email. Once you update your job board to this version, that should work right.

Change Log

Bug #1118: Error appears when “Quick Apply” field is used to apply to a job
Bug #1113: Translation error
Bug #1100: The color of job types in the desktop and mobile versions do not match
Bug #1092: Companies: When “All” is clicked, the 0-9 companies don’t appear
Bug #1090: Privileged company cannot view jobseeker’s full profile
Bug #1089: Jobseeker’s name is not displayed in “Logged in as” unless the page is refreshed

A heads-up! WordPress released its version 3.6.1 today so our next release will be more on fixing compatibility issues. If your job board is now using the new WP version, we’re just a chat or email away should you meet any issues in your site.

    I really would love to see some alternate themes that run engine themes. Check these out: <<< love the bigger top area….love the pic slider (would be great to have something like this that you can turn on and off)

    i know that i can have it done custom but would love it if you take a focus on aesthetic options as part of your updates

    you're the best in functionality — but could upgrade a bit in the look and feel of the website's template

      I agree with R Dub. Different themes are needed or at least the ability to customize the design.

      I contemplated buying JobEngine, but in the end decided to purchase Jobify last week. Although JobEngine has much more advanced features the ability to make my site’s design look more unique from all the other JE sites without the need of paying for expensive customizations was the deciding factor.

        yes thats exactly it — build the theme in a way with more aesthetic bells and whistles built in so someone can customize their own site without outside help. Thats the direction that everything is going in. You guys rule in functionality — but its really time to take a harder focus on the front-end and the flexibility for owners to customize their website’s

        and lets not forget: jobify has a very good responsive design, working out of the box. JE has a mobile version, which is buggy and not complete. plus, the mobile version on tablet sucks. that is exactly why responsive design works better. I hope JE switched over to responsive also, should not be so hard since they a have a simple design. also, some features are disabled on mobile, for example applying for a job. the JE team says this by design, but….they are the only doing it this way…..and others offer full functionality, on all screens. this is an area that the JE team really has to re-think their strategy and not be so ‘pretentious’. just my 2cts here. I have also chosen JE and done alot of custom work…so i have to stick for now.

      Please get a dedicated iPhone, iPad & iPad Mini user interface that makes sense and which isn’t buggy. Maybe a paid extension that you can charge us. Please look at & for inspiration. Most of us have already purchased jobify theme and won’t wait much longer if you don’t up your game.

      Thank you all for your valuable feedback! Please rest assured that we always note down our customers’ ideas and carefully consider them for improving our products further.

      At the moment, we’re working on increasing the flexibility when customizing JobEngine. You could be able to review our work in a couple more days. Anyways, improving this aspect of JobEngine requires quite some time and we’re trying our best to turn all our ideas into reality. Yes, all ideas about bigger top area, sliders, mobile version, and alternate child themes are valid points and will be considered in our coming product plan.

      Again, @disqus_dufgMPaU5f:disqus, @781b0d585736db5aa9cc075e2ce374dc:disqus, @0f20736b0b2fed3fb4c0049435679ec1:disqus, @ea73ba14d504c90e5428e7ce8ad52b75:disqus, we appreciate your comments for JobEngine.

        Thanks for being open @anhcv:disqus — -just partner with a couple of hot designers at ThemeFuse — or get one to design a really nice theme ‘around’ your functionality with its own administrative control center that you can re-sell. Then you can keep focusing on what you do best — functionality –and get a high end functional design at the same time

          Agree. Just like what Astoundify has done with the WP Job Manager theme and what JobRoller has done with their marketplace, find external designers to focus on providing several different (and professional) child theme designs while you continue to focus on building your platform. I’d be more than happy to pay extra to buy a child theme if the quality is good.
