Job Manager 0.3.0 Released

*sniffles* It’s growing up so quickly!

This new release sees a few new features:

  • Framework for supporting additional functionality through plugins
  • Support for Sitemaps, through Google XML Sitemaps
  • POT file added, for translations

On top of that, a pile of bug fixes. The Changelog has all the details.

As always, the Job Manager home page remains the same. If you want to dive right into the action, download it here!

With the addition of the plugin functionality, I’d certainly be interested to hear from other plugin authors who would like to work together.

If you’re bilingual with an urgent need to translate, I’d definitely love to hear from you, too! 🙂

    1. @khokon

      Thankyou for the comprehensive feedback!

      I’m planning on implementing quite a few of the features you’ve suggested, please see the current roadmap.

      I shall certainly take your ideas into account while creating these features!

  4. hi Gary,

    your plugin does look quite interesting. However I miss a documentation to have it working.
    Up to now, I only succeeded to have a 500 error.
    I have no idea on how to solve it by the way !
    any idea is warmly welcomed


    “Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. “

  5. Hi Gary,

    your Job Manager is a very nice and special job that I saw and want to implement into the web presence of a fellow.

    There are 2 remarks, I want to give you

    1.) How can I show Job categories?
    Right now, I am only able to show all jobs “?jobs=all”, but i case I want to show some general category i.e. “?jobs=general”, I jus receive a message, that there are no jobs at all, even though I have jobs in this category.

    2.) Is there any possibility in future to put the job manager into the left or right sidebar, oder to widgetize it, to be able to do so?
    ‘Cause right now I have to customize the navigation in the theme header to see the job manager on top as topic.

    Maybe I did something wrong, maybe these features are missing in the moment.

    And at third and last, if you need german translation for the plug-in, don’t mind to ask me 🙂 As native german I could do this 🙂

  6. @Steffen

    Good to know you like it!

    1) Are you trying to view Job Manager categories or WordPress categories? This is a bit of a confusing point – I’m removing Job Manager categories in 0.4.0, it will only use WordPress categories.

    2) a) Yes, a widget is planned for 0.6.0. Please give feedback there on any other options you’d like.

    b) 0.4.0 will fix the problem of Job Manager not appearing in the page list in your navigation.

    3) Could you specify the error you’re seeing? If it’s an error concerning page.php, Job Manager currently assumes that your page template will be called page.php. 0.4.0 will allow you to change this. In the mean time, you can work around this be either:
    – Editing jobman-display.php line #93 to use the correct template.
    – Copying your page template file to page.php.

    I’d certainly love help with the German translation! The jobman.pot file in the translations directory of your installation is the current version. Let me know if you need anything else.

    Thanks for the feedback!

  7. Job Manager 0.4.0 is currently due out late December. The functionality will be fairly similar to 0.3.x, I’m using this release to re-write the backend storage, to fit in with the WordPress data storage scheme, and to fix some of the problems users are having with the plugin working outside of the WP data storage scheme.

  8. Thanks Gary, for Job Manager.

    Some people seem to forget this is a free plugin, so I am sure there are things you can do to make it better, I hope people keep this in mind regarding this product.

    *Disclaimer* I do not know Gary, just felt compelled to say something after reading the feedback from the previous users.

  9. @Robert

    Good to know you enjoy the plugin!

    I know it’s a free plugin, and it has the potential for other people to make quite a bit of money off it – I’m cool with that.

    I’m always happy to get feedback and suggestions from users, though! I do accept patches, and I’m happy to discuss sponsored features, if the development schedule isn’t to someone’s liking! 😉

  10. i need some php scripts for registration page includes like username,password,gender,photo upload,qualifiaction,technologies,countries,state.
