Back to Job applications management plugin Support

Hi there,

I have just purchased and installed your Job plugin and have found a couple of bugs.

  1. When you save or update a vacancy you see a page error; url /backend/AmjadKhan/jobs/vacancies/update/1, referrer /secure-dashboard/AmjadKhan/jobs/vacancies
  2. The job application form on the front end has a bunch of field labels missing so you can't see what details is required to be entered.
  3. When you enter your current salary in the application form, unless you enter as an integer you get an SQL error PDOException: SQLSTATE[01000]: Warning: 1265 Data truncated for column 'current_salary' at row 1 in /home/vagrant/development/hetheringtonhouse/vendor/doctrine/dbal/lib/Doctrine/DBAL/Driver/PDOStatement.php:105

At this stage the plugin isn't really usable. Are you able to get these issues sorted or is there something I have missed in the setup.

Cheers,

Cy

Hi Cy, Thanks for purchasing the plugin, do you follow the installation instructions, i have tested the plugin thoroughly again, there is no error

1- Vacancies are saving and updating correctly

2- There is no missing field in the job application form on the front-end

3 - if you enter non integer value in current salary on front-end application form, it doesn't show any error on front-end.

Please test it again , here on my system it is running correctly, send me screenshots of your error on my email addresses, so that i can correct the configuration mistakes if any. Thanks

Hi,

I have sent images to your email address, hopefully you have received them.

I have restarted my server and tested again and still face the same issues. Plugin version is 1.0.19.

I have followed the install instructions;

  1. Install plugin
  2. Include scripts in layout file
  3. Add component to CMS page
  • The DB structure shows the ‘current_salary’ column as type INT, and the column does not allow null. But the current salary field is not required in the application form. This causes an sql error if the field is not filled.
  • The application form is missing field placeholders so those fields give no indication as to what information is required for that field. The field labels are not showing due to a CSS rule. Because the 'required' indicator * is in the field label, you can't see which fields are required.
  • The update and index pages for vacancies in the backend are linking to /backend/AmjadKhan/jobs/vacancies/update/* and /backend/AmjadKhan/jobs/vacancies/index. For applications using a custom backend uri, this link breaks.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Hi, I have released the next version, fixes two bugs i.e placeholders insertion and 'current salary' to varchar because the third option is customized uri, so you can change it according to your customized urls, because on octobercms default urls its working perfectly. I have one important enhancement, plugin filters and sorts received applications according to the job title.

Cheers

Great news, thank you for your work on this.

Regarding the custom backend url - other plugins don't seem to have this issue as this is a standard October configuration. 'backendUri' => env('CMS_BACKEND', '/custom-uri')

Hi there,

It's looking great! Just a couple more suggestions for the front end application form.

  • Make email to NOT be unique, to allow for applicants to apply for more than one role, using the same email address.
  • If possible make the 'Starting date' a date picker. This offers a much nicer user experience.
  • 'Expected salary' is marked as required but there is no validation on this field.

Thanks a lot for your work on this great plugin.
