Regions for WP Job Manager


Adds a „Job Region“ taxonomy so the site administrator can control a set of predefined regions listings can be assigned to.

Note: Listings are not filtered by regions. They are simply used as an organization tool.

Where can I use this?

Astoundify has released two themes that are fully integrated with the WP Job Manager plugin. Check out „Jobify“ and our WordPress Directory theme „Listify“


  1. Install and Activate
  2. Go to „Job Listings > Job Regions“ and add regions.

Sadly, this plugin is a poor idea. They SHOULD of used a drop down to query WP-Job Manager by the cords search found. Unfortunately, they convert the WP Job Manager Search fields to a drop down that uses a Taxonomy. This means it wont be compatible with many themes and plugins. I suggest using an AutoComplete field or a Select2 Field with AutoComplete locations. Maybe a predefined listing of jobs that set the cords and distances of the search.

Sad to see the plugin developer let this go or another hasn't offered to continue updating it; it's worth paying for. Many directory themes rely on it.

This plugin has not been updated for the last three updates for Wordpress and no longer works.

For the last 2 months the Region field is missing in the backend. No response from the developer give me the impression that this plugin is no longer being developed.

The plugin idea is good and can be useful in many cases. In my case, having a dropdown list instead of typing the location does not work, since for some jobs, the location can be small cities. If it was the same old text input field, but with autocomplete from regions defined, it would be much better.
