JobRoller v1.4 is Now Available

We’ve been real busy the last several weeks delivering some awesome updates to both Clipper and now JobRoller. With that being said, the highly anticipated update to JobRoller is now available. This is a new feature and bug fix release so all customers should upgrade. There was a total of 38 tickets completed which include several new features. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

The most notable features in this release include: a completely new “job seekers” portal where candidates can register, submit resumes/CVs, browse existing resume/CV database, bookmark jobs, manage their profile/resumes, and get recommended jobs with our new smart job matching engine. We’ve also improved the Indeed integration and added new hooks that work with the AppThemes API.

This release makes JobRoller the most advanced job board theme on the market. Existing customers can download it from their customer dashboard. If you haven’t purchased it yet, now’s the time to pull the trigger! Check out the live demo to see it in action.

Since v1.4, we have released v1.4.1 and v1.4.2 which are both bug fixes. If you have not yet upgraded from v1.3.1 then just install the v1.4.2 patch (or full version).

How Can I Get This Version?

Existing customers can login to their customer account and download the latest version.

How Do I Upgrade?

If you haven’t made any changes to the theme files then the easiest method is to just do a complete upgrade (download the full 1.4.2 version). Then follow the “How to Upgrade Versions” guide. If you’ve made modifications to the core theme files, then we recommend installing the patch version instead. Then follow the “Installing a Patch” guide.


Anything related to support should be posted in the support forum where our dedicated support team can assist you.

What Files Have Changed?

Many of our customers have done customizations to the core theme files and want to know exactly which files have been added, modified, and removed. In addition to providing the latest full version download, we also include a patch release. This will be a much smaller download and only include the files that have changed since the previous release.

So instead of having to read through the change log and figure out what files have been modified, you can just download the patch and sftp the files directly into your existing theme folder. You’ll still want to deactivate and then reactivate your theme so everything gets updated correctly but this will improve your upgrading experience.

Make sure to read the “Installing a Patch” guide if you decide to go this route.

    Brilliant! Well done to you David and the team. Love the review on Killer StartUps.

    One thing though, offline payment integration please.


    • author

      @Benja, thanks for the offline payment suggestion. We’ll see about getting that added in the next release.

  • Sam

    Well done guys… JobRoller is coming on leaps and bounds 😀

  • Katalog stron

    Good to hear that : ) Keep going! : )

  • Matthew Gray

    agreed – there are a lot of nice new features in this release but manual payment was a biggie that is not included…hopefully on the next release!

  • Kathir

    Resume listing is an impressive feature. For an employer, can the access to view resumes be made chargeable or is it available free now. Will the job seeker have to option to keep the resume view public or private….

  • Dwight

    So I take it this new feature does not include ‘Company Profiles’, ‘Multiple Job Importing’, and ‘Job Agent’?

  • vin

    Can the resume feature be disabled?

  • customer

    Hey guys,

    I agree with Kathir. I’m wondering if there’s an option to make the resume’s private or public. I’ve been following the forums since September and from what I gather (including my own preference), most of us want them to be held in a private database that only the job listers (employers, hr reps, etc… NOT OTHER JOB SEKERS) can view, for a fee, or with permission. Most job seekers do not want their resume’s made public, because of identity theft, and most importantly, victimization by their current(if applicable)employers. The job seeker should be able to update, remove, swap resumes as needed without fear of public ridicule.

    I realize that you guys can’t please everybody and you are doing an EXCELLENT JOB with all of the themes, and your customer service is light years ahead of the competition. Keep them coming for us. I know you guys are doing your best, and I just want to say KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

    • Mike

      There are visibility options (public vs private) and there’s an option for controlling who can browse them (which can be set tot employers only). There’s is currently no option to sell access to resumes, but this is being looked at for another release, probably as a subscription.

  • Portofel

    Guys how it is until it’s ready Vantage?

  • Sidhaarthaa

    Excellent Job David and the appthemes team. Following is required now that you have added Job Seekers.

    One click Profile registration using Linkedin & Facebook will save time and increase fast registrations. Lot of Job sites have added this feature and this will be a killer feature.

    See this example :

  • Kgoring

    I just had another walk through Jobroller and I’m really impressed with all that you’ve done so far. This is a really incredible site! Keep at it.

  • customer

    hi, i just bought and installed jobroller, which looks really promessing!
    unfortunately it doesn’t run with my theme (AirWp):( that normal that it doesn’t run on other themes? ..the error message is that something in header would be missing…, is that manually possible to fix?
    thank you, thank you, thank you!

    • Shannon

      @lumicon: All our themes, including JobRoller, are full-fledged application themes that are not meant to run on other themes or theme platforms. If you are wanting a JobRoller site with a different look and feel, I would suggest that you visit our forums ( There are a number of people within our community who have changed the graphics and layout of our themes and can help give you advice on how to do the same.
