WPJobBoard 5.7.0 – Better map

We have just released WPJB 5.7.0, it should show in your wp-admin panel within 24 hours, if not then please go to wp-admin / Dashboard / Updates panel and click “Check Again” button you should be able to update then.

Below you can find a complete list of changes:

Map integrated with [wpjb_jobs_list] shortcode

Now, map is internal part of the [wpjb_jobs_list] shortcode. You can display map using param show_map=”1″, also this shortcode now uses all params that previously was part of the wpjb_map shortcode, so you can use center, width, height, and zoom params, to specify how map should look like.

Map is fully integrated with jobs list, so results for map and list will be the same, no matter if you will use defult search method, or livesearch.

Additionally we adjusted how tab with job details on click will look like, to make it litte bit more modern.

But this is not everything you can make with design. We introduce fully customizable icons for pin and clusters, you can set it in wp-admin -> Settings (WPJB) -> Configuration -> Google Maps

The last thing we add is a simple feature that always adapts map zoom to fit all included pins, so you do not need to adjust it manually.

One additional thing, that we changed, but maybe you will not notice, is the fact that the attribute center is optional for the map, so you will not encounter an old issues where the map was not working because someone forgot to add this param to the shortcode.

Price Filter

If you do not like how the price is displayed on your page, you can adjust this with the new filter wpjb_price

add_filter( "wpjb_price", "my_wpjb_price", 10, 3 );
function my_wpjb_price( $price, $amount, $currency ) {
return $currency["symbol"] . " " $amount;

$amount is a numeric value of price, and $currency is a currency small array with values symbol for currency symbol, for example, $, and the second value is code with currency code for example USD.

Skip jobs count

In WPJobBoard we have a function that counts a number of jobs in each category, to display a number of jobs in each in a sidebar widget. But some of you may not use this widget and may want to speed up your page, for those of you we prepare a simple filter wpjb_skip_jobs_count

add_filter( "wpjb_skip_jobs_count", "my_wpjb_skip_jobs_count" );
function my_wpjb_skip_jobs_count( $skip ) {
return true;

This code snippet will skip counting, so you will speed up the job adding process, but you won’t be able to use count on widgets.

Bug fixes:
