    I’m a newbie what i must do to translate to other language your plugin?

    • author

      You must tanslate jobroller itself into your language, our plugin uses the same language package.
      if your jobroller site is translated, so you’ll need to do anything !

  • pulla

    This is funny, you didn’t reply my messages, questions for my problem with this plugin.
    but you answer pre-sale questions.

    I am not mad. but it’s sad.
    You said you would send me some code last month and not even replied any of recent messages.

    I really hope apptheme support is getting better.

    Is possible to have multiple category/job type searches?

    What i mean: Instead of dropdowns, it’s checkboxes.

    It’s kinda annoying you can only select one category and one job type at a time..

      There is no option for that, but it’s possible to be done through some custom mods.

        I already bought it, and I want to code that functionality, but i’m having a hard time figuring out, where the plugin does the actual search.

        • author

          Thanks Moderonen for purchasing our plugin.
          You find the files you need inside the plugin’s folder,
          the functions are inside: jr-advanced-search.php, jr-advanced-search-functions.php and the process file jr-advanced-search-process
          You can also adit the widgets to include that option here jr-advanced-search-widget.php

  • blue61em

    Your demo doesn’t work in Firefox or Chrome.

    • author

      Hi, please check out this link, it’s working for me

      • blue61em

        Thanks for the link. That worked. Can you tell me if it is possible to create an additional drop-down box for “Cities” and pull from that field? I want user to be able to display a combined search on “Category” and “City” that just returns the jobs in that category located in that specific city.

        Also, is it possible for the drop-down boxes to hold state after the search is submitted? i.e. they continue to show the Category and City selected.


        • author

          The plugin doesn’t show extra fields if they are not built in the database of jobroller. All the fields are attached to the framework of Jobroller, but in case you want more fields, like cities to be shown, You’ll need to add the custom taxonomy of the city to jobroller. which means a custom mod should be implemented.
          I hope I am explaining it well.

  • scchoo

    I am interested to buy the Jobroll super search plugin. Is it compatible with latest Jobroll theme version 1.7.2 ?

    If not , any plan to upgrade it soon?


    • author

      Hi Choo,
      I have just replied your PM.
      Yes it works just fine, Jobroller 1.7.2 was just a maintenance release, our plugin is compatible with it.

  • Kris Erlewine

    The “keyword” search in my standard JR 1.7.1 install does not work correctly. It returns “page not found” after the first page of returns. Does your plugin use the same search mechanism as AppThemes? Also, does it support radius search?


    • author

      Hi Keris,
      could you please create a thread in the plugin’s forum explaining how does the keyword not work?
      No , the plugin uses its own mechanism, it makes the search in custom types and it doesnt not support the radius- location by google – search.


  • gibby there a working demo?

  • gibby

    sorry nothing – browser will not open…

    I can only assume it is because I am in China and your site / server is blocked…

    • author

      I am not sure about this cause.
      do you see any error, or just a blank page?
      If you think your connection blocks our website, so you can use a proxy and see if it be still blocked or not !

    Can I add Super Search on top of “JobsApp” plug in?


    Anonymous likes this.
    • author

      @anuraagv : Super search plugin is a widget plugin that can be placed in any sidebar of the jobroller based site.
      If you create a sidebar in the header of jobsapp theme, you can simply add the super search on th top.

  • Nageen

    hello dear, there is no location field, but i need location field in advance search

    • author

      Hi Nageen,
      The location field is not a custom taxonomy. also it’s included in the main search bar based on google map function.
      In our plugin, You find an addition search bar (advanced search) including job category, job type, salary and keyword input.

      • Nageen

        actually i need 3 things n my search, Keyword, location and category.
        so how can i do this
        another issue is that when i click on search button without putting text in fields, after clicking submit, it will show home page not search page with all listings

        • author

          The location must be a custom taxonomy , to achieve that you should create it as list of predefined cities or states ( like categories and job types) and then the plugin detencts it and display it there.
          About your issue, I cannot replicate it in my install.
          Post yuour url in the forums so we can see.

  • damjanco1

    Hi there!

    I have interest to buy your plugin.
    I have few questions:

    Is it possible to make advanced search with your plugin like this:

    I know that extra customizations will be needed, can you assist with that, or give me some suggestions?

    Thank you

    • author

      Hi Damjanco,
      Thanks for being interested in our plugin.
      I am afraid that the plugin cannot give such very advanced search feature for the reason that jobroller framework itself doesnt have all those fields like in indeed or careerbuilder.
      Our plugin works with the custom taxonomies of jobroller (job type, job category, salary and input for keyword).
      It’s possible to custumize it but I am sorry that we cannot assist you with that (It needs lot of time and effort to achieve what you want). but still you can hire a good developer at , they have skilled developers there and one of them can help you to make it.

      One more time to not give you misleading details, our plugin only set a search bar of the custom taxonomies used in jobroller.but still it can be customized.


  • rahulr85r

    Hi Spartac,
    the demo seems to be broken.

    For Example
    – I search for the keyword rockstar in resume search sidebar
    If i select no category it gives me the rockstar resume (As what happens in the default theme)
    The moment i select the education category, it gives me nothing. (when infact this resume is under the education category).

    Is this only an issue in the demo ?
    Cause i need to be sure it works fine before i go ahead and make a purchase

    • author

      Hi Rahulr85r
      I will take a look with the demo. and if there is any issue I will forward it to my dev team to fix it.
      Thanks for the heads up.

      • rahulr85r

        thanks buddy, waiting for an update 🙂

        • author

          I think there is a glitch in the demo, I will test an updated version and see if it’s fixed.
          I then confirm it to my dev team so they fix it.

          • rahulr85r

            sure spartac,

            BTW. is there another working link that i can refer .
            just wanted to see ..
            if you could share any other website where its working should the job too.

          • author

            I will test it on my local site, I don’t remember now any customer’s website to give you to test with it.

  • rahulr85r

    Hi spartac,
    do we have a lead yet ??
    or if you could tell me a lead time.

    • author

      Hi Rahulr85r , I took a note to my dev team to fix it. There is no eta, We will release a maintenance version that works properly with the latest version of jobroller.

  • jhraa


    I want to buy this plugin but it is compatible with the last jobroller 1.7.4 ?

    Waiting for your reply,


    • author

      It was tested with JR 1.7.4 and it worked perfectly.

      • scchoo

        Hi ,
        I would like to confirm, is the Super Search work like classipress Advanced Search which it have ability to gather all data combined from multiple custom fields with one search ?

        • author

          yes somehow it is. the super search displays a widget that can applies combined data from multiple custom taxonomies ( job lcategory, job type,..)

  • Kam Banwait

    Is it possible to choose what order the salary list, or other lists, are listed in? like highest to lowest etc?


    • author

      Hi Kam,
      for now it’s not an option, YOu’ll need to modify the core code to achieve that, it displays the list of salaries by ranges (like selecting categories and types. the user selects the range of salary, ie: from 1000 to 2000 etc )

  • scriptedpixels

    Is there any way to hook in to this part of the plugin? For now I’ve used the work around but wondering if I can just hook in to it so I don’t have to change the core plugin files …

    • author

      Hi Scriptedpixels, for now, it doesnt allow hooks, the only way to implement that is to custom mod the code itself.
      I will forward this request to my dev team so we see how we can add hooks in the next releases.

  • seolution


    is it compatible with the latest JR?

  • seolution

    is it compatible with latest JR?

    • author

      Yes it is.

      • seolution

        Posting new threads @ support forum doesn’t work so I’ll write it here. I’m using latest JR and having these problems:
        1. I have a job offer for waiters(keyword waiter is in post content and title), job_cat is restaurant, job_type full-time. Now the problem:
        selecting job cat(restaurant) + job type(full-time) + keyword(waiter) doesn’t work,
        selecting job type + keyword doesn’t work,
        selecting job cat + keyword doesn’t work.
        Selecting only keyword works fine, selecting job cat + job type works fine.
        2. “Include empty terms?” doesn’t work(shows only !empty terms).

        Please contact me asap since this clearly isn’t the way it should work.
        Thanks in advance.

        • author

          Hi seolution
          post the url so we can test this scenario and provide the fix.

          • seolution

            Your inbox is full, please PM your contact details so I can send the url

          • seolution

            Nevermind the PM request. You can test it yourself on a clean JR install. You can find the bug on a latest JR and latest WP when searching for default job listing “WordPress Developer” in taxonomies “wordpress” & “freelance”.

      • seolution

        Any updates? When will your plugin start to work properly?

        • author

          Hi Seolution,
          As I said Pushed it to my dev team to renovate it and add more functions. they started working on it but it will take at least 3 weeks to release it.
          if you see it’s a long delay to wait. You can contact appthemes asking for the refund and once you see the new version of the plugin, You can purchase it again.
          Best regards

  • seolution

    Please PM your contact details via support forum

  • seolution

    So it’s 1,5 month since the bugs were reported, no updates/nor any information from the author.

  • benoit

    I think a much-awaited feature is needed in this plugin before I buy.
    * Dropdown with a checkbox for the category, job location, salary and tags to have multiple selections.
    * Jobs Sort By Relevance and by Date is required
    * Work Experience Filter Required ( Users to select what range of experience jobs they want to see.) Like a 3year exp programmer won’t be looking for a job that required 10+ years experience. So seeing those job in results just waste time of the jobseeker
    * Job Location Is a must!
    Without these features site is incomplete. You can see here what I am trying to describe
    We all have competitors if we don’t beat them we loose!

  • gvarona

    Hi, is this a working plugin ?

    Can I search for keyword + category (ie. Human resources)+location+date (ie.last week)+job type ?



    • author

      Yes the plugin still works but it requires more enhancement from our side. I would suggest to wait until we come up with a new update which will include bugs’ fixes and more features.
