    Hello! I have been working since last 2-3 hrs on the issue that I posted above. I have the following abservations, these can help someone to resolve the prolem:

    1.  The version of plugin that was installed on old site was version 1.1-a. It was working fine in terms of above problem.

    2. Current version of plugin is 1.1.1-c. Problem is in this version. I can say this since after I upgraded the plugin on the old installed, on this site also it is behaving in the same way i.e. problem of cache.

    3. The problem of ‘cache’ Vs Job listing page is only in firefox and not in internet explorer.

    4. This problem can be seen only if the user in logged in. ONce you log out, everything appears as normal on the job listing page.

    5. My conclusion is:

    “That in the version 1.1.1-c of wpcareers plugin, once the user is logged in on the site, he can not see job listing page properly in firefox, however page looks normal in internet explorer. In order to see the job listing page, the user has to  clear the cache in firefox. This also aloow the page to be seen only once, if the page is refreshed, the listings disappear again. It sems that there is some incompatability in version 1.1.1-c and firefox in terms of cache management.

    This is the start of an excellent plugin but it does have some serious problems / bugs.  The major one is that the wp_wpj_resume database is not created at install. 

    Line: 492 in jp_admin_setup.php update and replace r_status int(3) NOT NULL default 0,

    There is some error.  I had to create the database from scratch.  Took me a while to figure that one out.

    You can see what I have done with your theme and plugin at: http://www.dcspotlight.com/jobhunters/welcome/

    Wow i like it ;)

    This is part of an online newspaper which you can see here:  http://www.dcspotlight.com/

    This plugin is exactly what my client was looking for, but the bugs caused me many headaches.

    I see some serious money making potential with this if you added a PayPal function and cleaned up the english.  I would like to discuss this more with you.  Please contact me if you are interested in taking this to the next level.

    I have installed this plugin but it is not working properly. I would like to make sure it is operational.

  10. Lennie, 24. June 2010, 5:17

    OK, the resume table did not created with the rest of them, but wp_wpj_created_resumes did.  Is that just a typo in the installation?
