Needs a bit more work on where to send the completed application, but otherwise, this is great! Best of all, it worked seamlessly with my theme.

For what I need, this is OK as there aren't many options out there. Most seem to be offering job boards / portals which is overkill for the company who just wants to list their jobs. Now, I hate people who moan about something which is FREE, so first off, well done guys for making this plugin and thank you. My comments below are to help improve this by pointing out a few things. I have run another job plugin for 3 years which has not been updated since 2015 so it's time to change for security reasons. It would be handy to set the relevant widgets I want to use when adding a new position. As it stands now, I have to ignore 60% of the available widgets and put what I want in. It works, but it would be great to template this so I could just have the widgets I want, not all every time.I am finding myself cloning a page and making adjustments at the moment. It would be handy to be able to place some text within the application form which is display only e.g GDPR statement before a check box for accepting privacy policy for example. I am working on a client site and running this with shortcodes inside a flatsome theme. If the job list goes over 10, the pagination appears but page 2 breaks and generates a 404. I 'think' this may be to do with be using the UX editor but the links to categories works fine, so I suspect it's a little bug somewhere. Rather than having a text entry box for description, qualifications, benefits, contacts etc it would be easier just having one text area and let the user type their own headings or select from available shortcodes. This kind of leads back to my comment above regarding widgets and it would be better to have none and let the user select what they want to use, maybe?? or set a template to be used on all job additions. In my case, all I really need is a single text entry box and a few selectable widgets for the sidebar (in my case anyway). Once again, these aren't digs at all. I know it's free and I thank you for it. I think what you have 'does the job' but it has the potential to improve. I am sure you know this. 🙂

Brilliant plugin that does what it says it will and when it needs help / fixing support is there. Keep updated and this seems like the best option for posting jobs (Google optimised) onto your site.
