    Is possible to display all jobs in a category underneath one category heading e.g.

    category1

    • cat-1 Job1
    • cat-1 Job2
    • cat-1 Job2
    • cat-1 Job2

    category2

    • cat-2 Job1
    • cat-2 Job2
    • cat-2 Job2
    • cat-2 Job2

    Currently it shows up like this

    category1

    • cat-1 Job1

    category1

    • cat-1 Job2

    category2

    • cat-2 Job1

    category2

    • cat-2 Job2

    one way to do it/make it look better would be to use the 'Widgets on Pages' WordPress plugin or something similar and then use one of the Jobs Board "Recent Jobs" widget for each of your job categories. It can only list 15 jobs from each category though...

    Shoky - appreciate your response and that may be a way to do this, but I would very much like to know how to do it using the plugin itself with no additional plugins to rely on. I've seen this asked multiple times on this forum with no answer, and I contacted the plugin developer directly with no response as of yet but am hopeful to hear back.

    This is SUCH an amazing plugin, and it obviously can do just about anything, but part of the problem is the lack of documentation/user guide. Providing shortcodes is AWESOME, but I can't find any reference how to hard-code your own templates using straight php and tags, rather than shortcodes. I love that you can use conditionals with the shortcode, but can you only use "if" or can you use ANY conditionals? Some examples would be really helpful, if so.

    I have spent over six logged hours so far on this for my client (and we had budgeted two hours to implement, so I'm eating this time) and have nothing to show for it yet. Perhaps if I were a better PHP coder I would already have figured this out, but if I were a better PHP coder I wouldn't need to rely on plugins for these things :)

    For my client, they will ONLY use this plugin if they can have the Jobs List broken out exactly the way Neziah explained in his question above. So I'm in this position of figuring it out, or I don't know what, since there are no other job manager plugins of this caliber. I know it is possible to be done, I just can't find any answer of HOW it can be done, if it can be in the plugin's current state.

    Really, really frustrated and do not want to give up on this plugin!
