    John, I’ve now updated the plugin on the demo site members area.

    Thanks for reporting.

    • lxjam

      Hi Bruno,

      I purchased this plugin when it was on Version 1.4.0 a few years ago, I think direct from your website but obviously it doesn’t appear in Appthemes Account, is there a way I can get the updated version please?

  • Mark Sund

    The App Themes people sent me here for a question about FXtender. We’re interested in the resume upload functionality and have two questions…

    Do job applicants have a choice of formats to upload (Word, Open Office, PDF, etc)?

    Can the website owner search the text of the uploaded files from the WordPress admin area?

    Thanks,

    Mark Sund, Agency Director, Sund + Co

    Hello Mark,

    “Do job applicants have a choice of formats to upload (Word, Open Office, PDF, etc)?”
    Yes.

    “Can the website owner search the text of the uploaded files from the WordPress admin area?”
    No. Text inside CV files is not searchable.

    Please let me know if you have more questions.

    I bought your plugin on your site before you move to the market place. When I login to your site I can only download ver. 1.4.5. not compatible with jobroller

    Here on the market place its up to 2.3.5.

    How can we fix this?

    @kiduno, not sure what version you are referring to. The current version on the marketplace is 1.4.5, not 2.3.5.

    If you have any issues with FXtender 1.4.5 and JobRoller please report them on the support forum: http://forums.appthemes.com/fxtender-pro/.

    Hi i just purchased the FXtender to use on my jobroller site. How can I create a Custom field where I can specify a 3rd party email address to which applications should be sent, without requiring them to have an account with my website first when posting jobs?

  • simone

    Pls how can i set my site to make people register before they can apply for jobs with the message ( Please register to apply for this job. ) as seen on this http://bruno-carreco.com/wpuno/fxtender_jr/jobs/user-interface-engineer/

  • rsavoia

    I purchased FXtender Pro a couple of years ago, but the last update I received was 1.4.0 and I cannot access any update to 1.4.5. I deactivated it last year because it seemed incompatible with the current version of JobRoller and WP 4.3. Since it never updated, I was under the impression FXtender Pro was no longer in development, but after checking these comments, it seems that is still active.

    Question #1 – Is FXtender Pro still in active development?
    Question #2 – is it compatible with WP 4.3 and the latest update, 4.5?
    Question #3 – Do I have to purchase this add-on all over again to receive the latest version, which according to the comments, is 1.4.5? (When I originally purchased it, there was no time limit for updates)
    Question #4 – If I purchase it again, how long will I be eligible for updates?

    Hello @rsavoia,

    “Question #1 – Is FXtender Pro still in active development?”
    Yes. FXtender Pro is still very much alive 🙂

    “Question #2 – is it compatible with WP 4.3 and the latest update, 4.5?”
    Yes.

    “Question #3 – Do I have to purchase this add-on all over again to receive the latest version, which according to the comments, is 1.4.5? (When I originally purchased it, there was no time limit for updates)”
    Have you purchased it here on the AppThemes marketplace? If so, you just need to look for it on your dashboard.

    “Question #4 – If I purchase it again, how long will I be eligible for updates?”
    All new purchases are eligible for 1 year of support and updates. If you need more information about renewals and items update eligibility please contact the AppThemes support team.

    • rsavoia

      It isn’t in my purchase history here. I originally purchased it directly from your web site on 5/28/2012 8:58 PM and downloaded it via ejunkie.com. I still have the original receipt.

      There was also an updater plug-in for it, which since apparently de-activated on its own. I was never able to update FXtender beyond 1.4.0, although my understanding was the purchase included perpetual updates, the same as my license with JobRoller before AppThemes changed their licensing to one year of updates. When FXtender stopped updating, I thought it was because development ended. This is why I was surprised to find it still in active development here on AppThemes.

    @drsanjay, the date you are referring to is the first time the plugin was released.

    Unfortunately, the plugin page does not display the last update date. Anyway, the plugin has seen several new updates and I actively support it.

    Thanks for your interest.

  • drsanjay

    How frequently you release updates? after purchase how long you will provide support and
    updates ?
    when you are planning to release newer version?

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @drsanjay, according to the marketplace rules, all item purchases include 1 year of updates and support.

    I don’t have a specific release schedule but I’ve already did several releases and added inumerous new features to FXtender Pro. It’s now pretty complete and extends any JobRoller site in a big way.

    • drsanjay

      Bruno,

      Thank you for the information.
      Further would like to know after one year of purchase, if any updates are released then for getting those updates i need to pay any charges or renewal fees, if yes then what will be the price/charges?

      what is the latest version of FXtender Pro is available now? and when it was released?

      Thanks

    Sanjay, FXtender Pro, was released on 2012 and the last update was on October 2015 (1.4.5).

    Bruno Carreço

    Hello Sanjay, first of all, thanks for your purchase.

    Yes, FXtender Pro is compatible with WP 4.5. You can see it working on the demo site which is using WP 4.5.1.

    Please use your browser inspector to check for javascript errors. Some versions of JobRoller are having issues with the ‘SmoothScroll’ javascript library on WP 4.5.x. It’s probably your case and you’ll probably need to manually disable that library in JobRoller.

    To disable it you can just comment out this line under ‘path/to/jobroller/includes/setup-theme.php’, around line #99:

    wp_enqueue_script( 'smoothscroll', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/js/smoothscroll.min.js', array( 'jquery' ), '' );

    To comment the line replace just add to forward slashes to the beginning of the line like this:

    //wp_enqueue_script( 'smoothscroll', get_template_directory_uri() . '/includes/js/smoothscroll.min.js', array( 'jquery' ), '' );

    After this fix, the thumbnails should work.

    Note that the JS issue has nothing to do with FXtender Pro. Even if you disable it, you’ll see that the JS errors will still be displayed due to the ‘SmoothScroll’ JS library incompatibility with WP 4.5.

    As for the ‘robots.txt’ file, you just need to copy the provided ‘robots.txt’ file under the ‘/extras’ folder to your site root folder.

    If you need further assistance please use the support forum as it’s easier to reply to, and will also help other users.

    Does this have an option to upload a .doc or pdf with in-depth job details on it for people to download and view..?

    Many big companies have multiple vacancies for the same job through out the year. Having this option saves a lot of time having to repeat the data entry for ads….

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @aj2703, ‘FXtender Pro’ provides support for CV uploads on the job seekers dashboard. These CV’s can then be attached to their online resumes and downloaded by job listers when viewing individual online resumes.

    New ‘Resumes’ tab on job seekers dashboard:

    Individual online resumes with attached CV:

    Please let me know if you have more questions.

    @aj2703, I can only see a login screen at the bottom 🙂

    Can you provide a screenshot?

    • aj2703

      http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab64/aj2703/Untitled_zpsqjvfm9vb.png

      On the right hand side image you can see the two available files for download the Lister has made available. On the left you can see the job description downloaded and opened by the job searcher.

      Makes the whole process much easier…

      You have CV’s that can be uploaded. Why not a job description / application form that can be downloaded…?

      • aj2703

        Hi.

        Is there any chance this can be implemented.

        As you can see on the screenshot there is an option for a Job Searcher to download the job details / description etc.

        If you say are a seasonal business or any other business you might very well advertise the same job on may websites and often.

        It would make life so much easier if you could have the option of just filling out a few details and then directing the job searcher to download the details or application form via a link to a doc that you have uploaded.
