In this free version, will a job posting/ad automatically upload to any job boards or social media? Is there a way to integrate? Thanks!!

Hiya, the app can expose an XML feed - which many job boards can use as the feed for the job board - for example it can send a jobfeed to indeed automatically. The XML feed can be customised for other sites that accept it.

What happens when I edit the Job Order and click Public? Who gets to view this... and exactly what info will they be able to see? Is this where it will automatically upload to Job Boards such as Indeed?

The "public" checkbox makes the job viewable on your external jobs page.

This assumes that your OpenCATS system is accessible over the internet. If you have it on a shared hosting site, or a server that is set up correctly.
If your opencats installation is on a local only machine that is not configured to be accessible from other machines over the internet, then no one will be able to view your external jobs page.

Make sense?

As for the XML Feeds....I defer to Russ, I don't know anything about that yet :)

Hey all.

XML feeds - you can see here what info the feed exposes. The feed format changes slightly depending on which job board you send it to - this is simplyhired's feed template. If you contact a job board they'll tell you what they want in the XML feed, then you make a template. ... hired.xtpl

Hi Russ,

Is there a guide on how to create the jobs listing XML and send it to the WP Job Manager plugin.

Will applicants be able to apply from the XML published WP Job Manager pages?

Is generating jobs XML files a manual process or can it be automated and controlled from within opencats? like when a job is closed to auto remove from the WP Jobs Manager page?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Okay, it's built-in already.

You can access the feed by browsing to: '' with the optional '?t=' Template names can found in the xml_templates folder in modules/xml

i.e. you can see the demo site XML feed for Indeed at

you can amend the template or create a new one for your target jobsite. WP JobManager would then poll the XML feed at a scheduled interval (i.e. every minute or hourly).
