We just resubmitted the theme files to ThemeForest to ensure everthing gets included correctly, if you need the XML right now please contact our support. We also have theme documentation here: http://docs.astoundify.com/article/181-jobify-table-of-contents

Hi,

I will buy this theme asap to power up the site of a job-related startup.

Before, just need to know if your team is available for some paid custom modifications. Are you?

Any questions that are blank I do not know how to answer as you need to provide more information or the sentence does not make sense in English.

1. You would need to customize PHP code to change/edit the fields on submission form, if you want to edit the job submission form there is a frontend editor plugin that allows you to add/change fields on the form see: http://www.remicorson.com/product/wp-job-manager-custom-fields/

2.

3.

4.

5. WooCommerce includes PayPal plugin free of charge already, the WP Job Manager and Jobify theme works with WooCommerces, you must purchase this plugin though: https://wpjobmanager.com/add-ons/wc-paid-listings/

6. You can add video in the description area on the post a resume form, there is no portfolio, events feature on the candidates page.

7.

8. All free plugins are included list here: http://docs.astoundify.com/article/98-recommended-plugins only the ones that are free are included.

9. The search options are the ones you see on the demo, you would need to customize the theme code to allow for advance search with custom fields.

There’s no Dummy XML and Dummy Widget in my package, and I was thinking getting those…. What can I do?

Speaking as a buyer who doesn’t want to receive ‘support’ at a lower level than currently available…..

When I first debated buying this theme there was a forum where people could post their questions and get answers. More relevantly, it was also a place where people like me could search for answers to simple questions. That forum has now been officially closed by Astoundify. Questions here are batted off with the same cut and paste reply.

That means that now, to get the answer to even the most basic question, there is only the ‘submit a help request’ email form on your website, which has been set up NOT to send users a copy of their enquiry for their own reference. People who buy this theme and then ask questions have no record of the questions they have asked, or when they were asked. I’ve never seen a support system that failed to offer such a basic feature.

Your existing help system is, I have to say, plainly created with the exclusive aim of obliging as many people as possible to pay for additional support.

It certainly wasn’t created in order to help buyers find useful information without having to wait 2, 3, 4 or more days for an email reply that may not even then contain the information requested. I can’t think of a more effective way of preventing users from finding the answers to simple questions than by refusing to post answers in public and forcing them to use a private email form to post individual questions.

I must confess I am disappointed. I don’t mind paying for the stuff I need, but the more I look at this theme, the more I think it is exclusively a vehicle to sell your plugins and earn commissions from related sales. I don’t even mind that; everybody is in business, but when that’s backed up by nothing more than unhelpful videos and an unsearchable help system, it makes you feel you’re being taken for a ride. Why? You guys know as well as everybody else that wordpress updates often screw up themes and plugins, so your policies mean that when the next wordpress update comes out (must be due soon) everybody who doesn’t pay for extended support will be well and truly up the river if there are issues.

None of the other wordpress themes I’ve bought have that sort of policy. Admittedly, I’ve only bought a couple and they have all been ‘best sellers’. But maybe that’s why they’re best sellers.

Astoundify

For all who read this comment:

We want to be in business in the future, before allowing unlimited support (the previous model, which was using a very hard to search forum) was costing us thousands of dollars each month and with every new theme we release the cost of support that we incur gets larger. It was a tough decision but it will ensure that we are here to stay. We want to continue to develop new themes and update our existing themes (updates are always free to ThemeForest.net customers) and we want to pay our support staff a fair wage.

We now offer 6 months of free support for each theme license that is purchased. Offering unlimited support for the life-time of the product is a very bad business model, it is not sustainable for us to continue down this road. We want to be here in the future. A lot of other top elite ThemeForest authors have had to close their doors as the support burden is just too big.

We feel that the new support model is much better and answers to questions will be much faster as it was very hard to keep track of what was resolve and what needed attention on the support forums.

You can see from our stats that support replies do not take any longer than 18 hours, so your comment regarding support replies taking 4+ days seems incorrect.

See screen shot.

In the end the change will help us keep in business and allow us to expand our support and the number of themes we can release.

We are working on the theme documentation area each day to improve it as much as we can, if you have any suggestions on what types of topics you would like to see on the documentation area I would be very happy to hear from you.

BTW: You don’t seem to be a buyer or could be posting this under a different account.

Astoundify

The current business model that most if not all other ThemeForest authors offer is like a Ponzi scheme. The new users are paying for the old users.

Unlimited support and unlimited updates for the life-time of the product makes absolutely no business sense.

We believe customers who need help after 6 months of free support should pay for that support. We pay our support staff a fair wage and to do that, customers who need help after six months can either pay 15 dollars one time for 30 days of support, or can purchase another theme licence for another 6 months of support.

We only think that is fair.

Default-user

Seeing as someone has taken so much time to defend the system, I’ll reply, as a user who disagrees.

I also saw a forum before deciding to buy this theme and feel like I was stiffed, in that respect. I suspect I’m not alone in that feeling. As for the reasons to shut it, ‘hard to search’ is down to the creator of the forum, but I’ve never seen a forum before that couldn’t be searched easily. Still, you’re the programmers, not me.

The financial excuse isn’t valid. It takes just as much time for someone to post a reply to an individual email as it does to post it onto a forum. In fact, as someone will be answering the same questions endlessly, it takes longer. Considerably longer.

In terms of income you’re generating something like $150 a theme sold, with your plugins, plus commissions on any others like gravity. 2600 sales. The maths makes a nice number. Even without the plugins, the income is rather nice. You also have other themes.

I don’t know of a single genuinely good seller who’s gone tits-up on here or anywhere else due to providing support, although sellers of inherently defective themes often find support an expensive issue.

I repeat my comments about the support system you use. It has not been created to provide support, but to oblige users to pay for support.

Your response time statistics are meaningless to a user. Users are people, not statistics. I can create a pretty chart to show responses arrive once every thursday in February, if you like. As a user, your system doesn’t even provide a record of anything asked, especially if your support guys delete the original question from their reply.

And what does support include? According to your support guys: “We provide support to help buyers install and set up the theme so that it looks exactly like our demo. Anything more than that is a customisation and for that you should speak to our friends at…....”

You know, decent documentation or a searchable forum where such questions are posted and where a proper FAQ could be created makes far more sense. Decent support always gets rewarded with sales.

You seem to have reduced the ‘real world’ support and information, while trying to increase revenue from chargeable support. Given that this is your best-selling theme, it seems a bad idea to me and not one that enamours clients.

Perhaps what’s more disturbing is that your system actively conceals faults and problems that people are having. There is now no way for a buyer to decide how many bugs your theme contains and how good or willing you are with respect fixing faults. That’s a msssive negative.

One problem with all this is that it mean I have to wait two days (average 24 hours) to get a reply to a simple email because I can’t find the answer in an faq or forum.

More seriously, it also prevents potential clients seeing what problems current users are having, what faults exist in the theme, what conflicts occur inside the theme, what the customer service is like, etc. As a great example, someone flagged a css error on this same page, and the response? Go speak to support?

A ponzi scam is illegal and entails criminal behaviour. If you wish to compare Themeforest with a criminal scam, I suggest you take it up with Themeforest.

1. You are not one of our customers (you do not have the “PURCHASED” badge on your comments, so your comments come over as someone just looking to discredit our support and products (Perhaps you are another ThemeForest author or one of our other competitors, we will never know.) Please let us know if this is incorrect.

2. You talk about how we make 150 per theme, that is incorrect, we make 38 dollars per theme from ThemeForest.net after the marketplace has taken their cut. Buyers with the old business model would get unlimited support, we pay our support staff 27 dollars an hour, you can see how this is going to put us out of business right?

3. We do not create any of the premium plugins that work along side Jobify, they are all owned by Mike Jolley, he is a developer at WooThemes, created WooCommerce and also WP Job Manager. We do not get a share of this sales or affiliate income so we are still just making 38 dollars per theme, so your comments regarding making plugin sales is incorrect.

4. We aren’t GravityForms affiliates so do not make any money promoting GravityForms. You can use Contact Form 7 (which is free) NinjaForms also free or GravityForms with the Jobify theme to show the pop-up apply for job/resume modal windows when using this free plugin that we created: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-job-manager-contact-listing/

5. I know of at least 3 theme shops who are ThemeForest authors who have as you stated “gone tits-up”, because of the burden of support with the current business model is unsustainable. I can point out some of these authors if you like but not publicly.

6. We are improving our theme documentation on a daily basis, we are currently hiring a content writer to create even more FAQ’s for us so that customization type questions are also answered as well as what we already have as seen here: http://docs.astoundify.com/article/181-jobify-table-of-contents So this is a good thing :)

7. You talk about customers being able to search a forum where they can see previously posted questions so that they can make a buying decision if they should purchase a theme. Our forums where never searchable by non-customers, so your point regarding this is incorrect. There was never a way for a customer who have never purchased one of our products to see support questions on our forum. (We lock down our support so that theme pirates don’t get support access for free) We have now opened up our forum archive to non-customers.

Overall your comments are incorrect, but we have taken on some of your points and over the next few weeks will continue to improve our theme documentation and are playing with the idea of having a “community” forum where buyers can communicate with each other, sharing tips, information about how they have customized the theme etc.

We are continually updating our themes (at least 3 major updates this month alone see change log: http://demo.astoundify.com/jobify-darker/wp-content/themes/jobify/changelog.txt) and improving our response time on support requests and have some exciting news regarding our Jobify theme very soon.

Thanks for your feedback.

Default-user

I think I said at the beginning that “Speaking as a buyer who doesn’t want to receive ‘support’ at a lower level than currently available…..” and the reason you don’t see ‘purchased’ on this profile is that the theme was not purchased with this profile. It already takes quite some time to get replies to questions, as stated, I simply don’t want to get responses slowed down for the sake of speaking my mind.

Competitors? Well, there are several themes on here but I didn’t buy them. In fact, I was going to buy either job roller, which I believe someone else gave a plug for, or a template available on Drupal, but I have no knowledge of drupal. Hence buying yours. Your defensive response to many other criticisms is the reason why I am using this profile to make my comments. The defensive response to every criticism made me decide that this would be the intelligent thing to do.

Astoundify

You keep pointing to slow response times, please can you provide tickets of where we have been slow so we can improve?

We are currently looking into http://issuepress.co/ its like a forum so its searchable, and it logs the issues into our private GitHub so its much easier to manage, good things to come!

In regards to the above discussion about support. I dont mind paying for support but I really think that the support forum was a great place for users to look up problems that have already been resolved.

Maybe you could create a database of all the tickets you are receiving and give buyers access to that. The costs to maintain that would be much less compared to providing one-on-one support.

Astoundify

How would you feel if we had a “community” forum where buyers can communicate with each other, sharing tips, information about how they have customized the theme etc but all support with the theme is still done one on one via email?

Default-user

that would be perfect. I don’t mind sharing my experiences with other buyers and am sure others would be willing to do the same.

Can you just reopen the old forum. Currently I cannot even search it. That platform would work well.

Astoundify

Do you think people would use the forums even though we won’t be monitoring it? Support will still be done via email support.

To add a go to the WordPress backend if you are the administrator, click on All Job Listings >Click a Job Posting > Scroll Down to “Job Listing Data” it should look like this:

Oh. My. Gosh :)

I have been seeking a service style theme that would allow “Vednors” to add their services, and let people contact them. I was going to use a directory listing software, but this is exactly what I need.

All I need to do is change the text from “Job, Application, Resume” to things like “Services, Contact, Needs”.

So, basically… is the PHP language easy to modify for the terms? It looks like this theme functions exactly as I need it to – I just am not going to use it as a “Job” board.. but as a “service” board.

Thanks!

Default-user

Also – what’s the ETA for 2.1?? Wow!!! You are going have a loopable search field over a video background? I was looking for this exact same thing. It’s funny how fate sometimes works out, hahah. Wow.

Default-user

Also, sorry for the 4th post in an hour.. but has their been any headway made into allowing job posters to add images to their listings? About 9 months ago a comment asked the same thing and it was said there was a plugin being developed for this.

Astoundify

You can use the “Say What” plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/say-what/ to change all wording i.e. Jobs to Services, etc.

We don’t have an ETA of when 2.1 will be released but if you purchase the theme you will get the update, so you can at least start building your site now and once the features arrive update your theme to the latest version.

Regarding add multiple images via the job submission form, this is a feature that must be built into the WP Job Manager plugin more info here: https://github.com/mikejolley/WP-Job-Manager/issues/174

I would recommend adding your email to our mailing list or follow us here on Twitter for theme updates & here on ThemeForest for our new theme releases.

  • Bought between 100 and 499 items

I just had an idea for 2.1…

Imagine if a job seeker was looking for an employer, and then they went to their job listing and hit “Apply”. On that popup there would be a slider where you could slide from $0 – $xxx,000 for the salary that you are seeking or the hourly rate you are asking.

Then, the job poster could reply back with a counter offer for how much they are willing to pay per hour or salary. This “bidding/quoting” could go back and forth until, finally… the job poster hits “approve” and the bid is finalized at the price the job seeker is asking – or the job seeker hits “Deny” because the price is too low.

And then somehow… if its even possible… I don’t know how… the site owner could make a commission based off of this transaction if it is successful. Maybe that’s day dreaming :P

Default-user

Also – if this “bidding” functionality isn’t realistically possible… could you at least add a slider to the application form where a user can slide their price from $0 – $xxx.xxx” – that way, the job poster will at least see the applicants desired fee in the contact email? I know sliders are an option for HTML forms these days. :)

Astoundify

A lot of these features are custom features, i.e. not everyone need these features, if you are looking to customize the theme beyond the basics then get in touch with the guys over at WerkPress.com to get a quote, or contact the dudes over at Envato Studios, I hear they are pretty decent!

Default-user

Cool :) No problem, I understand that the theme is dependent on these plugins, so I will contact them.

Do you maybe possibly kind of have a tiny hint as to an ETA, haha? Do you think it could be more than a month out?

Astoundify

We really don’t like to give out ETA’s, ETA = Stress, so I would just recommend adding your email to our mailing list or follow us here on Twitter for theme updates & here on ThemeForest for our new theme releases.

I want to buy this theme for my company, we will just post different job offerings and then want to be able to have aplicants apply only. As far I see this is possible with this theme. However, I would also like for all applications to be visible on the backend depending on the job. So example for Job1, lets say five people applied. I want to be able to go in the backend, click on Job1 and check out the Resumes and info of everyone that applied to it. Is this possible with this theme? Thanks!

Hello, any plans to integrate visual composer? Also sticky menu?

Astoundify

No plans to use visual composer as you can build home page, job, resume pages from widgets, the home page is a widget area so anything you can think of can be shown on the pages. Sticky menu will come in Jobify 2.1

  • Bought between 10 and 49 items
  • Has been a member for 2-3 years

I see there are comments above about the next upgrade of the theme and I would like to make some suggestions:

1: I don’t like the existing map setup and think it would benefit greatly from allowing jobs to be shown on the map by country, not in continent clusters. For example, a quick look at my site shows a blob above southern europe with 11 jobs. I would look at the blob and assume it meant 11 jobs in Italy and if I were looking for a job in Holland I would stop looking, for example. The fact that one of those jobs was in Holland would never occur to me. As such, I’m trying to work out how best to replace it because I think it’s more negative than positive if you have international jobs. Of course, whether that’s easy or not is not in my remit to judge.

2: It should be possible to add country flags for strong visual cues to each job listing, so that people can scan them easily. Not much use for people who only want jobs in one country, I know, but the internet was never created to be parochial! Currently I can only do this by deleting company logos and replacing them with flags. Okay if I add the job, but needing manual updating if an employer posts a job.

3: There should be separate and clearly distinct registration forms for employers and job seekers. Currently they share the same form.

4: The list of required plugins shold be modified to show that ‘apply with gravity’ is not the plugin you need – it seems to have been replaced. Took me a while to work out why it didn’t work..

5: The dropdown nav menu needs a bit of styling. It doesn’t even have hover effects and loses alignent if you add 2nd level sub-items.

6: The pricing section needs editing to allow a different number of packages to be offered. It currently only allows 3 inline (I want 4) but allows a maximum of 5 (in two 3-column divs) which looks weird, and also the display order needs to be sortable. Currently the price packages display in the reverse order that they are entered into the database.

7: I would say that there should be a few ready-made classes or widgets to allow text to be added to pages. I know there are other plugins available, but the fewer external plugins the better, no? I mean, if I want to have an ‘about us’ page or static pages with text and image content, there are no ready-made templates – just full-page or blog.

8: The ‘featured jobs’ section that sits beside the ‘recent jobs’ box on the index page should allow the option of allowing more than one job. With only one permitted, it guarantees lots of empty white space if you have more than 4-5 recent jobs, or featured jobs without images.

9: A selection of different footer widgets would be great.

10: Header options – maybe a sticky header, or customisable options to suit preferences. Personally I don’t like the log-in item on the main nav because it takes up valuable space. A bar sitting above the main header would be great.

11: Seeing as these things are more easily set up by you than us, being able to show salaries would be pretty useful on a jobs site, not just on the job page but also the ‘find a job’ listings.

12: (A reservation and a suggestion) To be honest, the previously mentioned ‘resumes on the index page’ looks very gimmicky – a bit like those ridiculous sliding % scales that everybody incorporates into every Themeforest theme (except this one, it seems). You might ask what percentage of people actually use images on their resume pages (very few in my 15 year experience of recruiting staff,) and how many can be relied upon to provide decent images of the right size and shape so as not to make a mess of this kind of listing display? How long before Mr Dipstick adds a photo of his genitals, and how long before you spot it? How will that be prevented? That’s just inviting muppets to waste your life.

In addition, I’ve never seen a proper website where job-seekers faces are on display. None of the professional sites do this. None, that I’ve ever seen anyway. I can’t imagine the crap that would be thrown at a website for displaying the face of someone who was quietly looking for a job without their employer’s knowledge and got sacked as a consequence. However, if it’s something that people can choose, then I suppose that’s up to them.

However, what would be genuinely useful would be a way to restrict the number of resumes that an employer (registered, with current job advert) can see – either restricted detailed views per day, or in total. Allowing someone to pay $xx dollars for a single advert and then browse and download the resume of every single registered jobseeker doesn’t seem smart to me.

These would be great. There are more, but these just popped into my head.

Hi

I can see there is an option to share jobs via Social Media, but can you ‘Email to a Friend’?

Thanks Paul

There are many “Email To A Friend” type plugins out there, that have widgets that you can then place in the jobs/resume pages sidebar areas, I haven’t used it but I believe the JetPack plugin offers this featue http://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/

Hi I wanted to inquire about the theme before purchasing it to see does it suits my requirement or no

1. Do i get access to the code of the forms? 2. Does the theme automatically enter the details for eg a job post into the database and retrieve it automatically when some one wants to see the job listing?

Thankyou
