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.

    Essential plugin if you want to use WP Job Manager and have flexibility. The interface requires a bit of getting used to, but once you do, the possibilities are endless. In short, the plugin does exactly what you expect from it.

    Lastly, the support: Myles is truly great, responsive, and committed. I encountered a few issues, and he always found the solution I needed. He even made a special patch for a problem with a theme.

    I recommend 100%.

    This plugin is essential to set up a job board. This together with the field editor is a must I think. They work together and makes it possible to edit and adjust settings as needed and gives you new ideas how to make your site perfect.

    There is a lot of settings and tweaking so I would recommend buying a package of help instead of only the plugin. I did that mistake going in to this as a beginner on websites. It would save you time, money and effort paying more to get it set up and working instead of a lot of extra jobs to freelancers etc.

    Amazing product and support!

    Every plugin by Myles for WP Job Manager I have used ahs worked well, is documented well, and support is great. Happy to recommend any time.

    Myles has built a solution which has saved me many days of time. By using his plugin he has extended & added to the original WP job manager by giving the user the ability to create custom fields and layouts which give the user fine grained control of their jobs board. He has extensively documented the solution and his support replies are both detailed and quick. If you buy the WP Job Manager you MUST buy WP Job Manager Field Editor

    I tested a lot of plugins for WPJM. These are the best by far! Really great job! Amazing! Best regards from germany!

    (verified owner):

    Great plugin. I have used WP Job Manager for several projects but the lack of flexibility in the frontend search form is really frustrating. With this plugin you can totally customize the search and add as many new categories and filters as you want. Works very well together with Myles’ Field Editor plugin.

    (verified owner):

    Absolutely in love with this and the integration with Cariera theme. Was using facetwp with listable but switched themes due to many issues and so happy I did, setup was a breeze and being able to move fields around on frontend makes it easy for an old guy like me i struggled with facetwp for a long time. You were very nice and helpful while i was learning the plugin the elite license has already paid for itself in the help with other issues not related to your plugin, thank you thank you thank you!!!

    I have a job board running the workscout theme and the plugin works exactly as expected. Once I’d updated the theme this was the quickest set up of new functionality on the website I’ve ever gone through and works like a charm. Myles has been incredibly responsive to the few questions I had.
    I unreservedly recommend this plugin, well worth the price and more.

  10. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner):

    I 100% recommend this plugin and the support Myles provides is outstanding.

    I’ve used WPJM to add job board functionality to a community networking site but with limited WordPress knowledge (and zero developer experience) I was struggling to get it to work for some of our members. I purchased the Search and Filtering plugin from Myles literally a few days ago and I am now up and running with a Live job board which I am pleased to say is meeting all of my members needs.

    The support that Myles provides with the Elite Level License goes far beyond anything else I have experienced with other WordPress plugins. We are not talking about a few words in an email or a reference to a forum article. From the moment I purchased the plugin I have had a direct communication channel with Myles to explain what I’ve been trying to achieve, he has listened and advised every step of the way. When it went beyond anything I was able to do he’s jumped straight into my site and sorted it out for me.

    5-star review without a doubt.

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

  12. 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!
