Featured Jobs feature not working correctly
I’m a Newbie to Job Roller (JR) and I must say that I’m very impresses with it’s capability. But I have run up against a problem.
I recently copied all the job categories that were in the JR Resumes job category DDL, into the main job categories list as I wanted a Job Lister and anyone browsing the jobs to be able to do so by categories which were the same. It did seems strange to me that the list of Job Categories on the home page was not originally the same as the Resume Job Categories list.
I then removed the two categories that had been in the Jobs Category list previously, which were Featured (which was the only category in that list originally) and Specialist (which I had added a few days earlier), as these two categories don’t appear in the JR Resumes job category DDL.
Now I don’t seem to be able to select whether or not a job is to be “Featured” on the JR home page – instead they all show up in the home page Featured section and I just entered a new job and it immediately shows up in the “Featured” section of the jobs, even though there is no field or check box where I can mark it as Featured (or not) in the Admin Dashboard or in a Job Lister’s dashboard.
I think this problem developed after I removed the “Featured” category from the original list. I tried putting it back into the list, but nothing changes, so I’ve removed it again. I read about a similar “Features” problem in one of the JR blogs and tried removing the ID number (3) from the Featured Jobs Category ID, but all this does is take away the Featured Jobs section altogether,which is not what I want.
How is “Featured” applied to a new job, either (a) by the Administrator, or (b) by a Job Lister ? Is there some other function which happens when a Job Lister pays for a job or a jobs pack which turns the “Featured” feature on ?
Can you please advise me on how I can fix this problem.
