    What is the syntax for using grid view instead of the default list view?

      Support says:

      Hi George,

      For displaying jobs in grid view, please go to Job Board> Settings> Appearance Tab and select “Display job listing in grid view” under “Job Listing Views” section.

      Thank you. Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Unfortunately following those instructions does not result in display switching between list and grid view. Page continues to show list view always irrespective of radio button setting.

    Turns out that the Job Listing Contents toggle also does not do what it is supposed to. Keep showing Logo and details inspite of changing to without.

    Know what the issues is?

      Dear Prakash,

      It seems that you have made so many customization in the plugin due to which its functions stopped working.

      Please revert those changes, things will start working again.

    Medhav says:

    Hi, i would like to ask
    (1) How to edit the php files? should we do it through FTP?
    (2) I used short code to view only 10 job posting per page. But when i click on page number “2” or click on next, it stays on the same page, even though it display “2” and “Next.”
    (3) Is it possible to display the job categories in different pages, e.g. one page only for Full time job, and another page links to part time job and another page display only internship.

      Hello Medhav,

      1) Yes, you can do it through FTP & also can via CPanel.
      2) It might be due to SJB plugin conflict with your website plugins or code. Please deactivate all plugins except Simple Job Board and then see this issue. If issue is not resolved then switch your theme to any WP twenty theme and see the issue again. Let us know if the problem still persists.
      3) Yes, you can use a shortcode on post page i.e. [jobpost category="category-slug"]

      Hello Oz,

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

      It seems like that you have done few modifications in SJB plugin or your website plugins are conflicting with it.

      Please deactivate your website all plugins except SJB, switch your theme to any WP Twenty theme and then see this issue. Let us know if the problem still persists.

    Emily says:

    Hello

    When I try to add default Application form fields in the Settings tab, they disappear when I hit Save. I once managed to save one, but it didn’t then activate when I created a new job..

    Please help! Thank you – great plugin!

      Hello Emily,

      Have you modified the Job Board core files? If yes then please undo these changes and then take a try to save the default form fields again.

      Also, deactivate all the plugins except Job Board with the default WP Twenty theme and then try to save the form fields. Maybe your installed plugins or theme conflict with our plugin.

      Let us know if you are still facing an issue.

      Thanks for using SJB!

        Emily says:

        Thank you. I’ve made no modifications so there must be a clash. Grrrr. Shame. I’m not able to disable any more plugins than I have and I don’t want to change the theme…

          Hello Emily,

          We suggested you just for testing purpose. We are not saying you for switching your theme permanently. Sometimes, the code or script used in the theme or third party plugin disturb the plugin functionality that’s why we recommended you to switch the theme for a while.

          If your site is configured on development server then take a try to switch the theme to default WP Twenty theme and deactivate the plugin one by one so you can find out which plugin or code is breaking the functionality of Job Board.

    Hi There. Please can you direct me in the right direction as a starting point. I need to create a custom thank you page when the application is submitted. So instead of the page refreshing with a Thank You Message like it currently does, there needs to open a new custom page.

    I know I need to work with the following 3 files, however I just need direction on which parts I need to configure on the following pages:

    simple-job-board-public.js
    class-simple-job-board-ajax.php
    class-simple-job-board-public.php

    Please could you direct me regarding this.

    Kind Regards

    Rudi

      Hello Rudi,

      For this customization, first you have to understand the code structure of the Job Board and then modify it as per your needs.

      Also, hooks are available to extend the functionally of Job Board. If you know the usage of WP hooks then please utilize them. If not then we strongly suggest you please take help from a programmer.

      Note: Don’t make any change in Job Board core files, after the plugin update your modifications will be lost.

      Thanks for reaching us out.

    Krishna says:

    Hi,

    The plugin is great and very ease to use.. I just need one help. instead of using pagination, can I simply define the number of jobs I want to show on front page?

    My idea is to add the job-post shortcode on an independent page called ALL JOBS and show only 3 or at the max 5 recent jobs on the front/landing page without pagination, kindly assist.

    Thank you

    Hello Krishna,

    There are two solutions for removing pagination:

    – You can only hide it with CSS display “none” property.

    – You can use SJB templating feature, override the pagination template into your activated theme and then remove the pagination code.

    Thank you for writing to us. Let us know if you need our further assistance.

    Hi, very good plugin !

    I have a question, how can I put a link/button in each job to come back to the “home jobs choice”

    tanks a lot for help

      Hello Daniel,

      You can use a breadcrumb plugin to display the proper trail of the Job Post. You can also add a custom button using Job Board templating feature.

        Hi, thanks to the help

        I have another questions.

        a) At the end of the form there is a field to send a file, but how to translate the “Browse” and “No file chosen” ? And also the “Submit” button ?

        b) I have now purchase the multi file attachement plugin “Simple Job Board Multiple Attachment Fields” but I want to choose the order of the attachement fields. Because there is always the field “CV attachement” at the end and I want it as firs attachement field.

        Thanks guys

        Best regards

        (sorry may be for my bad english)

          Hello Daniel,

          Here are the following answers to your questions.

          – You can translate your Simple Job Board in any language, you can do this using POEDIT software. You just have to follow the below instructions.

          Using POEDIT, you just have to create the .po file, add the lang_code with the file name and add the strings with their translation like simple-job-board-lang_code.po and place the file in plugin languages (simple-job-board/languages) directory. After adding strings with translation compile the .po file with POEDIT, it will generate .mo file.

          You can also add strings with their translation at GlotPress.

          GlotPress Team validates the translation, after validation, it will be updated on GlotPress and you can get translation via WordPress updates.

          – Currently, it is not possible you have to write custom code to change the order of the resume attachment field as per your needs.

          Hi Abdullah,

          Yes more questions 😉

          1) It’s possible to receive the attachement fields directly by mail ?
          2) Possible to customize the email notification for admin and for appliers ?
          3) Can I add a reference number to each job and display it in the job page and in the home jobs choice ?

          Thanks a lot for your help

          Best regards

          Daniel

            Hello Daniel,

            Here are the answers to your questions.

            – For attachments, you can buy our Email Attachment add-on from our marketplace.

            – Yes, you can customize the email notification template. For this, you have to understand the plugin structure and having knowledge about how to use WP hooks.
            As a glimpse you can explore class-simple-job-board-notifications.php file placed in the following directory:
            simple-job-board/includes

            – You can use job features field as a reference number to differentiate with other jobs.

    Hi, This is a very nice plugin. But I have a solution for apply online form. How can I place the fields side by side I mean horizontally? At present they are in vertically, It’s very ugly to see it. So, I want to change it side by side. Can you please tell me the solution for the fields placed side by side.

    Simon Peters says:

    Hi,

    We discovered some kind of bug in the application form, which I don’t really understand.

    We have the email field required, and therefore it shows the *-symbol behind the label. As soon as the applicant types in his address, the *-symbol somehow disappears and doesn’t come back.

    I believe that we didn’t make any changes to the template or other code of the plugin. Any suggestions?
