Product Description

Search and Filtering for WP Job Manager is the ONLY plugin specifically created for WP Job Manager to add, remove, or modify the fields for Searching and Filtering Job and Resume listings.

Search and Filtering is a complete drag-and-drop, frontend editing plugin, allowing you to visually change and see exactly what your visitors will see when searching or filtering listings on your website.  This fully featured plugin allows you to see in real-time, exactly what the layout and style of your custom filters will look like, without the need to ever reload a page again. 

Think frontend website builder, but specifically made for WP Job Manager.  This plugin comes with numerous features right out of the box, to enhance your website to the fullest level, adding whatever kind of search or filtering fields you would like.  All custom meta fields are supported, as well as taxonomies, and even a few custom features from this plugin, like search radius, to allow users to narrow down listings based on the radius around the value entered in the location field.

    Like all the other addons it works great! Easy to use.. great job…

  2. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner):

    Outstanding addition to WP Job Manager and finally enables advanced filtering without needing to mess with templates, functions, hooks, etc. The interface is easy to use and the output is fantastic. This has really taken our job board to the next level!

    Plus—the Elite plan support has been phenomenal. We’ve paid far more with other vendors and received barely more than a 1 line email support response. Myles is thorough in his responses and explanations and truly wants his users to succeed with his plugins.

    Highly recommend!
