    you could put a separate install in /blog and /jobs
    and link to each other…
    or multisite would also work

    Hi Max625,

    It looks like the Jobs Manager plugin automatically creates that jobs page. Even if you created a subdomain like jobs.yoursite.com and installed WordPress there, you’d end up with http://www.jobs.yoursite.com/jobs as the URL to your jobs area.

    Unless you want to try to do some masking with .htaccess, looks like using WordPress for your entire site would be the way to go.

    Good luck!

    looks like ChristiNi knows more about the plugin – so follow her suggestion

    @samuel B
    That seems like a reasonable solution. I understand how I would do the separate installs. Based on a quick review of the link and those found in “Other Resources” at the bottom of the page – it seems the linking can get a bit hairy. In your experience – is managing the link between the separate installs a reasonable endeavor?

    I have “shared” web hosting rented out with a third party – so if I understand correctly the multisite isn’t an option as you need to be able to edit httpd.conf.

    @samuel B – OK – Thanks!

    you can easily create a faux page for your main menus to link to each install and use this plugin

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    masking with .htaccess
    I’ve got some background with apache – but wouldn’t consider myself an expert. Seems like I could probably give this a shot. Will job manager still function properly if I implement the masking (I’ll assume you wouldn’t have suggested it in the first place if the answer was no :P)?

    WordPress as CMS for entire site
    This seems like a decent idea. I wanted to add a WordPress managed news feed page (currently updating it manually via hard-coding html) anyways. That way I could add a widget to the homepage sidebar that shows recent news, blogs, and jobs (doing that manually right now too). The question is – how daunting of a task is switching over 100 pages?

    Based on what I have read – it is possible to have different widgets show up on the side bar for different pages, so I’m guessing I could preserve the functionality of our current sidebar.

    The idea seems promising though as the CMS we had planned on using for the rest of the pages has issues.

    @samuel B
    Thanks for that link – that is a very handy plugin.

    Hello again Max625,

    I can’t guarantee that masking the URL through .htaccess will not cause issues with your plugin, but it’s worth a try. Of course, make a back up copy of your .htaccess file before making any changes to it. WordPress may not work correctly if anything is amiss in .htaccess.

    This site should be helpful:

    Good luck!
