We’ve got news and heads-up for your JobEngine and one really important notice on this update. Just two minutes and you’re through reading this post. Well, roughly two minutes. It could be less or more – depends largely on your reading pace.
In previous versions, JobEngine allotted two spots for the widgets, the Main Sidebar in the Home page and the Blog Sidebar. But there aren’t only 10 widgets available in WordPress, not to mention the ones we created. With just two locations for them, we realized this congests the two important pages when job boarders choose to include a number of widgets. Moreover, it gives job boarders not much leeway to strategically position the widgets and leave nothing significant unnoticed.
So JobEngine added three more strategic spots for your most needed widgets on the site.
In the Widgets panel in the backend, you’ll now see these five sidebars –
1. Main Sidebar
Drop widgets here to position them in the Home Page
2. Blog Sidebar
Drop widgets here to position them in the Blog page
3. Companies Sidebar
Drop widgets here to position them inCompanies page
4. Job Detail Sidebar
Drop widgets here to position them in the Job Post page
5. Company Sidebar
Drop widgets here to position them in the Company Profile page
Play around the widgets and decide which ones should greet your customers in Home and Blog pages and which ones should tell the particulars of your site in the new sidebars.
What else are new and polished on the site? Take a look at this list:
Feature: Allow company to insert their website address without “http://”
Feature #205: More sidebars
Change #195: Revise confirmation text for “successful password changed”
Design #203: Add a tooltipon“enable/disable a schedule” icon in JE Indeed
Bug #193: Drag and Drop buttons overlap Job Categories and Contract Types
Bug #194: Edit tool on IE isn’t responding
Bug #198: “This field is required” notice on Job Description appears intermittently
Bug #200: All tabs in “Renew this Job” page are not responding. (IE)
Bug #202: + icon overlaps Save Schedule text
Bug #204: Design error in IE9: Gigantic icons
Bug #210: Incorrect display of company count in Companies page
New Extenstions Heads-up
As of this writing, we’re cooking two new extensions that will largely benefit job seekers and developers.
1. Job Alert extension: This will allow job seekers to subscribe to receive email notifications when new jobs matching their criteria are posted on the job board.
2. API extension: This will help developers integrate JobEngine with other services or develop their own plugins to expand JobEngine’s abilities.
Hopefully, we’ll have them ready in a couple weeks after the holiday vacation.
Holiday vacation? Yes, you read it right. It’s the important notice we’re talking about earlier on this post.
Lunar New Year Holiday
This sounds sweet for EngineThemes team but may rush in heavy sighs from you. Still, we have to let you know.
In light of the celebration of the Lunar New Year, our team is taking a holiday vacation from February 8 (that’s tomorrow) until February 17. Quite long, huh! (Now, we hear heavy sighs and see shoulders dropping.)
Don’t fret. We won’t leave you staring in nowhere trying to figure out what to do with your JobEngine when something undecipherable pops up.Our support staff will be opened to answer your queries.
But since not all our support staff will be at their desks during this period, it may take us a little longer than usual to get back at you. We’re asking for your utmost understanding on this matter.
We hope this post didn’t take so much of your time. 🙂
