ClassiPress v3.0.5.3 is Now Available

The latest version of ClassiPress was made available yesterday which is a maintenance release for v3.0.5. v3.0.5 was released last month and included a bunch of new features – many of which were scheduled to be in v3.1. In all, there were 158 tickets closed out.

We made the decision to break apart v3.1 into two different releases mainly so we could first take advantage of a important WordPress 3.0 feature.

  • Custom Post Types and Taxonomies

This was the biggest change and required us to move the entire theme over to custom post types and taxonomies. It was a huge undertaking from a development standpoint and took the majority of our time to complete.

It made more sense for us and our customers to release this huge change in a pre 3.1 release instead of lumping everything into one gigantic release. This will essentially ease everyone into the new UI and feature-set.

JobRoller v1.2.1 is Now Available

We just released the latest version of JobRoller yesterday which includes a bunch of great new features. Some of the highlights include:

Advanced Search

New advanced search filtering available in v1.2

You can now further refine your search results with a whole new set of filters. First and foremost, we enhanced the existing search bar to include “location” and “radius”.

This allows your job seekers to narrow down their criteria within a mile/kilometer. It’s super accurate since it’s integrated with the Google Maps API.

We’ve also added a new sidebar widget where you can filter results based on job type, job salary (new field), job category, and date posted.

Ideas Exchange Launched

Gathering customer feedback about our products has always been a priority for us. It not only gives us valuable information about how they use our products, it also provides us direction for future product updates.

Previously all feature suggestions and ideas were posted in our “Feature Request” forums which worked great….in the beginning. Our support team combs through those forums on a weekly basis and gathers all ideas for us to review. The only problem now is the high volume makes it hard to determine what feature ideas are the most popular and great ideas could potentially get buried and we wouldn’t even know about them.
