Issue 136

We are building features for the Women Who Code community and we want to highlight that work with our stakeholders, you! THANK YOU to our contributors for dedicating their valuable time to help us build tech a place where women can excel.

You can follow all of our work on github. Below are a few snippets of our awesome features.



This week the WWCode Core Team resolved a minor issue with the job board, improved the way we interact with the Filestack API, and fixed a problem with event start and end times. 


Fix Salary Validation

  • When customers post a job to the Job Board, they are provided with a place where they can enter the potential offered salary. Recently we had a few bugs around this feature. To resolve them, we added back the validation for salary_max being greater or equal to salary_min. And now the salary is displayed properly on the job form in different scenarios.

Steps For Testing

    • Login as a user and make sure you have some job credits

    • Fill in the job form but don't fill in salary; after submitting you will see an error that the salary fields are required

    • Fill in the max salary > 0, and the minimum salary greater than the maximum; after submitting you will see an error message

    • Fill in a min and max salary that are different and save your job; if you go back to the edit page, the min and max will be prefilled with the salary min/max that you just filled in

    • Clone your job, and the salary min/max will be the same as the original job

    • Edit a job, and make the salary max smaller than the salary min; after submitting you will see an error message

    • You can save a job with these salary values:

      • min and max are the same value > 0

      • min and max are both 0

      • min is anything > 0 and max is 0

      • min is anything and max is greater than min


Add Filestack Client and Specs 

  • We need to be able to interact with the Filestack API to manage our files stored there without using the Filestack dashboard.

Hot Fix for Flickering Time Spec Test 

  • This fixes an issue we had with some event start times being earlier than end times.
