    This code in functions.php will enable comments:

    add_filter( 'register_post_type_job_listing', 'custom_register_post_type_job_listing' );
    function custom_register_post_type_job_listing( $args ) {
      $args['supports'][] = 'comments';
      return $args;

    Creating a job currently posts jobs with comments closed – I will add a filter in the next update to get around this, so as of version 1.2.1 you’ll be able to use:

    add_filter( 'submit_job_form_save_job_data', 'custom_submit_job_form_save_job_data' );
    function custom_submit_job_form_save_job_data( $args ) {
      $args['comment_status'] = 'open';
      return $args;

    Until then, after the first change, you can enable comments by editing the job itself.

    Thank you Mike, worked perfect.. Excellent plugin!!

    hi mike thank you for that, can you explain how to enable short codes in job listing pages :))

    thank youu

    Hi, Please clearify where to paste the code above. It doesnt work for me yet.

    can I make it automatically to add comments? can they be visiable only to the owner of the job list?

    The functions go in theme functions.php. Any changes to comment visibility would need to be done via your theme template files.
