      Hi John,
      The plugin creates 2 widgets, one for jobs and the other for resumes, the widgets can be placed in sidebars, and it’s very possible to integrate it in any place of the website, mainly the home page.
      We can assist you to create a new sidebar to be placed in homepage, then You easily drag and drop the advanced search widget inside it.

      Let me know how I can help You better.

    I would like to know if you can get rid of the rss button but still feed jobs into the site or just get rid of that feature entirely

    rss is OK but it imply’s you don’t manage the site on a daily basis and your just a job site that feeds in jobs we build job boards and have sold them for a lot of money but we do like to use job roller to start with then upgrade the site later on we would like to know if we could do this with your theme ?

    we would be interested in purchasing this theme is the rss logo button can be removed from the theme ?

    we would like to know under the jobs it has a little Facebook icon we don’t use Facebook its a waste of time full of spam but we use twitter can be change the fb logo to twitter instead under the jobs?


  • jetheights

    Hi Spartac, been ages, How you doing? Is it possible to export the functionalities of this tool to other websites instead of just showing it on one sidebar widget?

    You can inbox me if it’s possible…

    Best Regards Mate.

  • author

    Hi hetheights,

    Please let me know if my answer wasn’t clear, also you can ask anything you want, I am so glad to help.

    Receive my best regards

    Any chance this can be used on the Vantage theme or do you have one in the works for Vantage or one you’re working on for Vantage?

    Really like Vantage theme but need to have a way to refine the search on it.



  • author

    Hi John,
    we are actually working on a vantage one, It’d be released very soon.
    It will offer same functions, refine search for vantage.
    I will notify you whenever we finish it.
    Thanks for your interest in our products.
    Kind Regards

    • john

      Any news or ideas on when this might be finished for Vantage?



      • author

        Hi John,
        We are updating our plugin with more functions, not sure about the date of release, but we will update it soon.
        bout vantage, I need to talk to my team, if there is no alternative in vantage, so we might put a version for it.

  • jparker0923


    I would like to know if we can change the salary field from a selection box to 2 text boxes that compare each other. It would be just like a text box for comparing min price and max price, except they would enter min salary per hour and max salary per hour! it that possible?

  • agenseo

    1) I just bought your plugin because i thought that one can add the Location as a search field in the widget parameters. There is a screenshot on this page showing the Location field. So I’m disappointed this field is actually missing from the search. This screenshot is misleading. Is it possible to add this field ?!

    2)Also, There is a problem with the category field : For example when I do a search with you widget by typing the keyword “test”, let say I have 2 results. When I search again for “test” but this time by also selecting a category that is only matching one result, i still have the two same 2 results. You can see for yourself in the demo. Try to look for “job” as a keyword with the category “IT & Software Development” and you will have 2 results, one that is correct and one that doesnt’ have the IT & Software category : Office Manager, Doctors’ Offices.

    3) Last problem I have : when I do a search with a keyword and a category my results are also being displayed as Featured even if they don’t have the category featured featured. I have no idea why…

    Hi agenseo,
    Thank you for purchasing our plugin.
    About the location, It’s not included in the plugin, as it’s not mentioned in the features that we added a new field or taxonomy, and the admin screenshot was taken by a guy with me, using one of our childthemes that have location field, we did not mean to mislead you or to give you a different image of our product, it was a human mistake, anf if you see the front end screenshots You would see no location there.
    I am going right now to delete the admin images and change them with ones using the default theme.I am sorry that we disapoint you by that mistake.

    About the other issues, I am going to check them in my local install , I believe that the demo is not updated to V1.1, so in while I update it myself.

    I am sorry one more time for that mistake in admin screenshot, and be sure that we stand up here until we resolve all your issues.

    Kind regards

  • webnetimages

    does it work for others themes like realstate based on classiprss

  • author

    Hi Webnetimages,
    Unfortunately it doesnt, this is a jobroller plugin, however, we are going to make advanced one for classipress with some advanced features.

  • webnetimages

    Just let me know if you like, by mail when is ready


  • Tamara

    are the form fields of the plugin fixed or can they be add manipulated based on categories and types. for example, can i add a drop down field of Search by Location, Experience etc to the search form?

  • author

    Hi Tamara,
    The plugin was created to fit jobroller default fields, but as it’s flexible, so adding any new field, will require very slight changes in the widget’s code.
    Note that the plugin detects any new taxonomy in any theme or child theme.

  • arsenalke

    Great plugin. However, can this Advanced Search plugin search through the Indeed/LinkedIn jobs as well(in addition to searching through the jobs directly uploaded to JR)?

  • author

    The default jobroller search bar searches by keyword and location only, but this one allow the users to make complicated multi section search to refine the you can select for ex: keyword + accounting category + freelance job type + a salary + a tag.. so it’s totally advanced not like the default one.
    I am not sure what do you mean by multi choices option, but you still can see the admin widgets by going here
    You go to appearance => widgets to check the options available.

  • author

    No, there is no date, no radius, because we did not want to duplicate jobroller functions,that display the radius on search bar, and the date in the permanent sidebar.
    The plugin is an advanced search for custom taxonomies, and the date is not one.

  • dave

    Same question as @arsenalke above:

    can this job super search plugin search through the Indeed/LinkedIn jobs as well(in addition to searching through the jobs directly uploaded to JR)?


    • author

      Hi dave,
      indeed jobs are not added to the jobroller database, so noway to search within , jobroller ONLY display indeed jobs but it does not include them to the database.. so for now, noway to achieve that.

  • Symmoca

    Hello Spartac, could you update your changelog to include 1.2 and 1.3 versions of your plugin, i searched for this info here and on your website but found nothing. It would be logical to inform your potential customers of what have changed in last versions released, don’t you think ?

    Also, do you offer a refund if we are not satisfied by your plugin? I’m asking that because when i watch your ratings you got 5 stars from 4 persons…but those persons are appthemes developers and/or plugins developers (that includes you, coz i saw you gave your own plugin a 5 stars rating) and what i see real customers ratings, it’s not very encouraging (2 users rated you 1 star and 1 rated you 3 stars…so from real customers it’s more like a 1.5/5 rating)

    Finally, it seems that your plugin doesn’t really work on your demo page, it loads but then everything goes crazy then (tried on 2 different computers and various browsers), could you fix that (and if possible include the 1.3 version of your plugin in your demo page so we can have a clear idea of your plugin potential).

    Thank you

    • author

      It was a maintenance version and appthemes announced the updates in twitter and facebook. one file was changed which is /jr-advanced-search.php

      We are going to create a page for status releases to keep our customers posted, we are redesigning our site, installing and configuring forums in

      – About the refund, our plugin is an open source application, same as jobroller, and the customer has all the right to test the front and back end before he purchases it. and the refund can be accepted ONLY if the application is not working..unless, like all open source application, when it’s purchased, there is no way to be returned.

      – Customers do not notice that section or they just do not care enough to go back to the plugin page to give rating, and the appthemes team are testers too, they test our products before they set it in the marketplace, and all products must follow a certain level of quality. for this they voted, the other developers are best testers, they do not give ” charity” votes.

      The one gave us 1/5 we removed his subscription because he used our plugin to resell it, so he came back to ” take revenge.
      If it satisfies anyway, we can make a call for customers to vote, but that section is not that important, and when the user tests the application and get convinced that he needs it, is all what they need to see.

      I prefer that new customers read the comments, it’s the right place to get the correct impression and ignore the voting ALL as it is with all the votes or take the votes as they are. no need for a case study here.

      – The plugin demo maybe broken, the interface only, not the plugin, try to select a color on the top to see how it works. meanwhile, we are going to set a default color for the plugin.. so nothing is wrong with the plugin.


      • Symmoca

        Thanks for the reply. I’ll wait till you update changelog and update your website to decide if i buy it. So far i don’t see much difference with the original search except the resume search widget.

        • author

          @Symooca, thank you for your feedback.
          The change log is updated , as well as the demo is working. Jobthemes has the same page as this one in the marketplace and it includes all the customers and visitors need to know about this plugin, and for further assistance, they can use : the comments, the forums, emails,and PM.
          As it’s obvious, this is advanced search engine, the default one has no function with combined fields to refine the search.

  • pulla

    I have a presale question.

    I have 2 more customized taxonomies for job and resume. it is possible to do have a search bar both of them?

    customized taxonomies are important for us.
    let me know.


    • author

      Hi Pulla,
      are these customized taxonomies related to jobs/resumes?
      if yes, so our plugin works with them.
      The plugin detects any new custom taxonomy linked to jobs or resumes, and in the widgets You will need to select what field you want to display in the advanced search.


  • pulla

    It looks great. but I have small problems.

    my default front page(job) is not “job” page as demo job roller.
    I created my job page and changed default front page a custom page.
    All of job search result goes to default front page. it shouldn’t be.
    the link is …”/job-list/”

    Can you tell me how to change link to the search result page?

    on Resume, custom taxonomies are not working. not searched.

    If you need, I can send my url.


    • author

      could you please post your url so I can see the custom taxonomies?
      If you can, please create a post in the plugin’s forum so we can keep tracking your issues.

  • pulla

    the search result of custom taxonomies go to “/” default front page. not “/resumes/”
    please let me know how I can fix it.

  • sergiopereira

    want to bu this plugin how can i translate this to other language, the steps involved?

    • author

      Hi Sergio,
      Thanks for your question.
      The plugin creates 2 widgets so technically,there is no word you need to translate , the plugin gets all the words from jobroller custom taxonomies, so if you have jobroller translate into your language, the plugin will be ready to use.
      The titles of the widgets can be changed manualy in the widgets admin.
