We’re looking to add an enthusiastic WordPress developer to join the WPtouch team to help work on WPtouch, this website, and various other bits of pieces of code within the WPtouch world.
In addition to PHP, JS, and CSS skills, we’re looking for someone who regularly participates in the WordPress community, can work effectively remotely, loves squishing bugs in their spare time, and someone who is already familiar with (and hopefully loves!) WPtouch.
If you’re interested in joining the team, please review the full job posting and send us your resume along with an email cover letter telling us why you’re the best person for the position. Please also include some PHP theme and/or plugin code samples so we can get a sense for how you code.

Last week we released updates for our core WPtouch Pro plugin, as well as our Bauhaus theme. This was a compatiblity release, and along with a minor bug fix, we added much better support for plugins that interact with the WordPress comment form! These changes were also bundled up and released in WPtouch free.
You may notice a small cosmetic change to the layout of the comment form, but the significant change was under the hood. With this change, other plugins that want to interact with the form now can.
You can, for example, now use JetPack’s Comments module to simplify the form, and allow users to identify themselves using a social media account.
We hope that this update will allow you to take better advantage of the many WordPress plugins out there, and spark more discussion on your blog!
A changelog for this release is below.
* We resolved a bug that could output a PHP warning message for some users. The warning appeared in the mobile theme’s menu, and the bug that triggered it is now fixed.
* We made a couple of small changes to support Bauhaus’ new comment form.
* We replaced our old comment form with the newer, better supported WordPress form.

Today we released new updates for both the free and pro versions of WPtouch, and a few of our themes and extensions! These are minor updates, but they incorporate feedback that we’ve received from customers and users to make WPtouch better and more stable. For a list of changes included in this update, read on.
* We resolved a small conflict for users between Yoast SEO and WPtouch. The issue affected the page titles for the homepages of customers who were using a mobile homepage that was different than their desktop site’s homepage.
Bauhaus (including free)
* We resolved an issue where for some customers the featured slider would display, even if no posts had a featured image set.
* We resolved a bug that hid blog posts for some users who had a specific configuration.
* We re-added the Back button for websites running in Web-App Mode.
* We updated our prompt bubble so that it will no longer appear for Android users who are viewing the site from within the web-app.
