Hi Experts,

Looking for a plugin that will allow members to sign up and then be able to add/edit jobs to a job board page.  I can restrict access to this page easily enough, but i'm having a hard time finding a plugin that will let the adding and editing of jobs to be done from the website and not from the wordpress dashboard.  Anyone know of a plugin that will do what i need?  If not, is there anything else out there that could be customized to do this? Thanks:-)

    Hi Laura,

    Most job boards work in one of two ways:

    1) Posts are made from the dashboard and redisplayed as jobs
    2) The plugin has a form to allow posting of new positions

    For #2, the only one I've found that does what I want is JobRoller:

    But if you can find a plugin you like that works the other way, then you can pair it with a form plugin like Gravity Forms that allows you to create a front-end form that authors a post.  With that combination, you don't need to send users to the Dashboard.
