    Hi, saw your plugin and it works great on the sample sites. However, I tried installing on WP 2.9.2 and I get the following error. Do you think I’m doing anything wrong? I tried to follow the instructions step by step and use 777 for the file attributes.

    Warning: require_once(/home/caerberu/public_html/workfromhomephilippines/wp-content/plugins/wpcareers/include/jp_captcha.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/caerberu/public_html/workfromhomephilippines/wp-content/plugins/wpcareers/jp_control.php on line 56

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/caerberu/public_html/workfromhomephilippines/wp-content/plugins/wpcareers/include/jp_captcha.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/caerberu/public_html/workfromhomephilippines/wp-content/plugins/wpcareers/jp_control.php on line 56

    Hi there,

    I’m trying to configure the plugin, but i’m getting a error when submitting a new resume. I mean, everything goes well, i receive the confirmation email, but when I go to the backend of the site to approve the new resume, there is nothing to aprove….

    Another thing, when i check “Resume Categories”, in the number of links, it only apears (), without any link inside. In the “Jobs Categories”, even the categories without any post inside, it apears as (0). May this have something to dowith the problem?

    Do you have any clue of what to do? Thank you very much for your help!

    Hi again!

    I just found this bug: When you try to make a search after a job name (already in database) you will obtain this:
    Warning: date() expects parameter 2 to be long, string given in …wp-content/plugins/wpcareers/jp_search.php on line 51

    This bug also appear on your demo websites.
