    I am testing Simple Job Board Plugin for functionality.
    I’ve worked thru most of it.
    Would like to know how the email response for ‘job application’ is/can be configured to insert the applicant’s name and email address, for the HR response.

    Cheers,
    Peter Coulson

    Hello!! I need a little help from an expert. since I’m a newbie at WordPress or Web development in general, I need some help embedding the job board to my Career page on the website and I also want a brief on how it works. do i need to embed it every time I post a new job or is it just a one time thing? Please help!

      Support says:

      Hi Anas,

      Simple Job Board is an easy, robust and shortcode based plugin. You can list multiple jobs at your website by using the shortcode [jobpost]. When you add a new job through admin panel, it will automatically list that job in the jobs listing.

      For more information, please visit our plugin’s FAQs section.

      Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Hey I’m Having a little problem with the plugin, I the icons get really big when add a link for my contact page in the call to action button which was off course on another row. I do not understand what is the conflict is between the two.

    This is how it is looking after I added the link, http://www.test.racgl.com/careers/

      Support says:

      Anas,

      We have gone through the provided link. It seems that you have made few modifications in your plugin due to which plugin styles aren’t loading.

      If you have modified the plugin then please revert the changes or re-install the plugin once again.

      Thank you. Let us know if the problem still persists.

    Hey I need some help I’m actually having a little problem with the display of the job board since I added a few links to the next row/Widget. And problem is that the job board has increased in size for some reason there are only two job in display and it has taken the whole page, I tried a different plugin yesterday but it did not work either so I’ll be using you plugin only. please help out soon.

    Anas Ali says:

    Hey Sehrish,

    I have not made any modifications. that is why I do not understand what the problem is. Is there a way i could attach screenshots so that I could show you the control panel ? I’m only using [jobpost] as a as a short code in the visual editor widget and thats it.

    Anas Ali says:

    I Just deleted the page and reinstalled the plugin but i’m still facing the same issue? is there a way to restore the plugin to default?

    Anas Ali says:

    I have just sent the email, please do let me know if there is anything else needed. looking for a swift response from your support team. Thank you

      Anas Ali says:

      Hi Sehrish,
      So the Plugin clearly is not compatible with the “Site origin page builder” like you mentioned in the email before and because I’m not actually much of an expert at WP, could you please suggest a compatible page builder?

        presstigers says:

        Hello Anas,

        Page Builder plugin is not compatible with Job Board plugin since it is experiencing errors while loading plugin styles. You can either load plugin styles directly in your theme or use another page builder plugin that fulfills your requirements.

        We can’t recommend any other page builder plugin as we have no idea about your requirements. You can find similar plugins from WordPress repository according to your requirements.

        Thanks.

    $attachment = apply_filters( ‘sjb_hr_notification_attachment’ , ‘ ‘ ,TRUE); is not working .Please help me out for attachments.
    Please reply me as soon as possible.

      Support says:

      Hi Ashutosh,

      Please don’t change the filter argument. It’s just a filter and only applies when you call its filter hook.

      If you know the usage of WP filters then use the “sjb_hr_notification_attachment” filter to write the code for attaching resume in HR email.

    Is SJB useable in a multisite ?
    With other words can ik use the main jobslistings in al the subwebsites websites.

    Do you have a tutorial for this ?

    Sherry Haney says:

    Questions:

    1. Is there a shortcode to show just the search area without the listings below.
    2. Is there a shortcode to show in sidebar with a more reduced version that isn’t scrunched.
    3. Is there a way to have the search results show in a separate page? We want to show it on the home page, but it needs to open in a secondary page.

      Hello Sherry,

      Thanks for contacting us.

      Here are the answers to your questions.

      1,3: Currently, we are not providing these features in our plugin but you can customize your job board as per your requirements.

    Hello,
    I would like to remove the ‘Apply Online’ section as we would like the applicants to phone or email us. Is this possible.
    Many thanks

    Marco says:

    Hello,

    I installed your plugin and it functions well. But I miss the option, that normal users can add a new job without working with the administration formular.
    Are there any possibility for that?

    Many thanks

    Hi,
    Uploading the resume with .docx extention is not working. (the console is showing this error: “the server responded with a status of 502” ) And the emails are being send to junk. Is there a solution to fix that?

      Hi Ani,

      Thanks for writing to us.

      Please verify the .dcox file’s size if it is in the range. If this is not the issue, then please share your site URL so that we can scrutinize your issue.

      Regarding your second issue, please configure any SMTP plugin.
