We’ve released a new version of WP Job Manager with some new features and bug fixes.

You can download the latest release here or head over to Dashboard → Updates to update your plugins from inside WordPress.

Please note: While we have thoroughly tested this release, it’s always possible that we missed something, so we strongly advise you to test the update yourself on a staging site before updating your live site.

Some key changes in this release include:

  • Added client side validation on the job submission form for the job category and job description fields.
  • Added a submit button to the [jobs] filter form for improved accessibility.
  • Added option to show the company logo on the Featured Jobs widget.
  • Updated how the [jobs] shortcode maintains the form and results when you navigate into a job listing result.
  • Added access to the standard job listing fields in the REST API.
  • Added a warning about upcoming minimum PHP version bump to 5.6.20 (matching WordPress 5.2).

You can see a full list of changes in the changelog for the release.

In addition to this release, we’ve also been busy releasing updates to our official extensions. The following extensions have been updated in the last few weeks:

  • Resume Manager 1.17.2 added the option for having password fields on the user registration form, removed the nonfunctional LinkedIn Import functionality, and flushed the resume listing cache when a resume is deleted.
  • WooCommerce Paid Listings 2.8.3 fixed a bug related to orders with deleted products and added compatibility with WP Job Manager 1.33.0.
  • Indeed Integration 2.2.1 included a bug fix that was causing fatal errors on the [jobs] page when geocoding errors were encountered.
  • Embeddable Job Widget 1.1.1 fixed an issue with styles and enhanced select fields when creating a widget.
  • Application Deadline 1.2.2 changed the applications closed notice so it only appeared after the applications were indeed closed.
  • Job Tags 1.4.1 fixed issues related to the CSS styles not getting loaded on the shortcodes and the job tags not showing up in WordPress’ new block editor.
  • Simple Paid Listings 1.3.2 fixed the issue with encoded characters showing up in Stripe’s order description and orders without email addresses failing.
