Reviews

Great Support Team

Hi,

I have been using the plugin for the first time. I must say the best support, the team is very friendly and quick response.

Thank you so much for making our life easier 🙂

Excellent Customer support

Had a question regarding the plugins functions.php which I needed to edit. Received a very prompt reply and follow up support in resolving my specific requirements. And this was all before I’d become a paid up customer to their add-ons. Can’t thank you enough guys.

Expandable Parent Locations

I love the plugin. However there is a suggestion for improvement regarding Location’s drop-down list option in job search. If you can incorporate only parent locations in drop-down list which are ‘expandable’ to show the child locations (when user click on + sign next to parent location); then it can be lot more easier for the users to search jobs with lot less clutter of locations. It will give a more tidy and readable view of the locations in job search. Thanks

Best Jobs Board Plugin

I use this plugin from more that a year and i found is the best in his category. Is over many paid plugins.
Also the support is great, easy to use and customize with template files.
Now with the addons you can do much more. Simply: 10+ for this plugin.
Please keep going with your great and hard work.
