Indeed and XML job import available

Version 3.4.4 is ready for download. In the update one of the most requested features was added. Indeed and plain XML jobs import, so currently there are 3 import methods available: CareerBuilder, Indeed and import from XML file.

The Indeed import was most requested feature for a while now. since many users claim it provides best search results, however i do not like it that much, because it returns only 256 characters from job description. As for the XML import i think that everyone who wishes to migrate to WPJB will find this useful. Exact XML scheme is described in Knowledge Base.

Aside of the import 3.4.4 contains 2 small bug fixes (no other bugs were found), which makes the 3.4 branch pretty stable and recommended for production use.

  1. How does the user apply for the Indeed.com jobs that are imported? Can this be done through the job board apply now feature or do they have to go to the Indeed.com website?

      When clicking “Apply online” link (for Indeed jobs) users are redirected to Indeed apply page instead of default apply form. Currently it’s not possible for users to apply on-site for Indedd jobs.

    How do you add the Indeed attribution that is required by Indeed?

      You can place it on the page where you have [wpjb_jobs_list] shortcode.
