FXtender plugin for Jobroller theme is the best
By -

I highly recommend FXtender plugin for the AppThemes JobRoller theme. FXtender takes your job board to the next level so you can have more control, funtionality and features. This has been my experience:

1 – All my pre-sale questions got answered on time and in detail
2 – FXtender allows me to re-direct visitors to signup, and upsell Job Seeker resume submissions = $
3 – Customer support has been the best I’ve received from many WP plugins. For example I had a little issue with my site on a Friday and I emailed Bruno @ FXtender asking for help. That same evening I received a detailed response with multiple solutions. Seriously..he made my weekend 😉

Conclusion: FXtender plugin is very handy for JobRoller and the customer support is professional. Go purchase FXtender now and go maximize your job board 😉

We are using Sebet’s plugin and it really has extended Jobroller’s functionality. Sebet is fast to respons to user queries too. And the new export update should be a Godsend for all those squeamish about MySQL queries.

Superb Features, Functionality, and Support
By -

From the very first release, the developer (sebet) has been very responsive to requests even beyond the default setup and configuration. He was always quick to reply and even now with greater core responsibilities, he continues to enhance this product and delivers excellent support. As FXtender Pro continues to evolve it has proven to be an invaluable tool that has greatly enhanced the overall functionality, feature set and success of the JR theme.

Very surprised
By -

I am very much surprised by the negativity of most of these reviews. I have known and worked with sebet both on his own site and here, and I am using his plugin FYtender from the time back, when it was only available from him. I have never experienced a problem that has not been resolved by him within a very short time. Only recently, when I reported a problem, it has been solved within an hour from the time that he got involved.

FXtender as an add-on to JobRoller has always been bringing the features that we diid not get in the “parent” product – at to some extent this is still the case. Besides this, to the best of my knowledgge, sebet is the only guy whom Appthemes has eventually taken on board to assist them with the development of JobRoller – so I understand that updates to FXtender do no longer come as often, because they go directly into JR.

Bear in mind, especially with FXtender, that his is a one man show. So I think that it is only natural that he is not available 24/7, and sometimes goes AWOL for a number of days. This has been so in the past and this is absolutely OK. What do yoou think you got for $39, a monopoly on his life? Take a look around, how prompt and how professionally are you helped in these forums? In my experience, he is one of a very few here, who take their responsibility seriously and who always tries to help – and mostly is able to do so.

Lets just say, I hesitated awhile cause the reviews sucked. But, out of sheer desperation purchased as I need the resume uploader.

DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!! Perhaps if support got hold of me regarding this issue and NOT wait 2 days, maybe I would give it a better review but its honestly hard. No reason I should wait 2 days for anything after I purchase their sucky product. Working towards a fix or refund. Depends how quickly I get any answer, I see myself moving ALL my sites to Job Board. I shouldnt have to wait for 2 days for support.

A waste of money

Have to shut it down to get other items to work in WordPress – poor performance

Promising but not that good. And the vendors DO NOT PROVIDE ANY SUPPORT
By -

Honestly this is not a good piece of software. Not value for money at all. Nothing but regrets ever since I bought it. One conflict with a theme you are using then it makes your site look like crap. To make matters worse, no matter how much you screem for help, the vendors of this plugin just dont give a damn! As soon as they get your money you are on your own. They will never respond to any of your communications.

By the way there is nothing you can get fr9m this plugin that is not already available in a other child themes such as simplux. And simplux is a high quality chikd theme – very stable and the vendors are very supportive. Just the other day a simplux vendor debugged my website and fixed a problem that was related ti this FXtender while the vendors of FXtender were nowhere to be found.

So, yah…you make your own call. But I would never recommend this plugin to anyone. You are better off donating your money ti charity.

I gave it a 1 star and honestly I feel I’ve been very generous.

    @aj2703, apologies for the late reply. Somehow, I missed this comment.

    Actually, if I correctly understood what you are asking, this should already be possible by enabling ‘Profile Resumes’, ‘Attached Resume Uploads’ and setting the number of file uploads in ‘Max. Number Profile Resumes’ to any number.

    This should allow any job seeker to upload multiple files to any online resumes they have. These files are then available to download when viewing the respective online resume.

    Note though, that this feature currently doesn’t seem to be working correctly. The file upload limit is currently being ignored (currently accepts only 1 CV per online resume ). If this is what you need please send me a PM and I’ll send you a piece of PHP code that corrects this issue.

    Anyway, I’ll be correcting this on the next version.

  • aj2703

    No you are misunderstanding.

    It’s for the job LISTER. An option for the Job Lister to upload a .doc or a.pdf file that contains the job description in more depth or to upload an application form or even both.

    Look at this link.

    http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab64/aj2703/Untitled_zpsqjvfm9vb.png

    You can see the Job LISTER has upload two extra files. A job Application form that is downloadable in word and underneath a pdf of the job description that has a greater detail of the requirements of the job.

    This saves a lot of time for the job lister as it means they do not have to keep typing the same details up if they advertise the same position often during the year. An example would be a supermarket would want to hire extra staff at Christmas for a couple of weeks why it is busy, then after Christmas has finished those staff would stop working there. Then say at Easter they may want to hire staff again as it is another busy period and so on.

    The option to upload files for the Job Lister would save them time and make the process much easier.

  • Sorin

    I would like to know if the FXtender Pro has the option to sell resumes one-by-one. For the moment I only have the possibility to give access to all resumes for a subscription period.

    In the future I want to sell promotional packs as well that includes a number of resumes for a specific price.

    Thank you in advance,

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @Sorin,

    If you use Job Packs, you can use the FXtender Pro option ‘Resume Views Limit’. If you enable this option, a new meta box will be displayed on your job packs allowing you to set the max number of resumes a job lister can view. You can sell a job pack with a ‘Resume View’ limit of 1. That way, a job lister will only be able to view one resume.

    FXtender Pro job packs options page:

    The new meta box displayed under your job packs (backend):
    https://cl.ly/420d0Z3I1C39/meta%20box.png

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

  • alexkim

    This plugin is total useless, waste of money, should be taken down.
    First, resume plan need a resume view limit by number but this guy put that in job plan add-on -,not in resume plan -which is totally useless.May he do not understand the nature of jobsite business at all. He should maintain his reputation by refunding money to unsatisfied customer (credit ,or make better updated version) instead keeping money & ruin his reputation .

  • author
    Bruno Carreço

    @alexkim, If you are not satisfied with the plugin or you think a certain feature should work differently why didn’t you just contacted me through the forums? I don’t seen any post from you in the forum regarding this.

    Suggestions are always welcome and every plugin has room for improvement. I’ve been improving the plugin since 2012, the date of it’s release, and it’s still very much popular because users have helped me improving it, with their feedback and suggestions and they keep giving me their support.

    As for that feature in particular, that was actually a suggestion from users what wanted to have a resume view limit, specifically under job packs, so job seekers could view a limited number of jobs without a resume plan. That’s why that option is clearly listed under FXtender’s ‘Job Pack’ options.

    I understand that the way the feature works might not work in for you in particular but that’s the nature of plugins. If you think this feature should work in a different way please post your suggestions. As I’ve said before, suggestions are welcome and you are welcome to post them on the dedicated forum thread (http://forums.appthemes.com/fxtender-pro/suggestions-new-features-50388/).

    Note: I don’t work on the job business. I’m a web developer that has some inside knowledge and through the years have been learning what can help users with their job businesses, mainly through the feedback of many experts in that area.

    Thank you for your feedback.
