Indeed and Simply Hired Data Feeds for JobRoller
Indeed and Simply Hired are two, very well-known employment sites. They aggregate job listing data from thousands of sites from around the world. What you might not know is that all of this data is available to you. Even better, Indeed and Simply Hired will pay you to publish their job listings on your site.
Indeed tutorialBoth companies offer pay-per-click networking programs that provide job data to post on your site. When a site visitor clicks on a job listing to visit the Indeed or Simply Hired site, you get paid. It’s as simple as that.
The AppThemes Indeed plugin is included with every copy of JobRoller. You do not need to install anything but you will need to do a few things to get the data into your site. AppThemes JobRoller developer, Bruno, has created a step-by-step tutorial on how to get Indeed data feeding to your JobRoller site.
Simply Hired tutorialOur Simply Hired plugin is not included with JobRoller but is a separate plugin available for purchase on the AppThemes website. To find out how to use the plugin, read Bruno’s tutorial on setting up Simply Hired for JobRoller.

Cars and restaurants, theaters and junkyards might all be on the same site but need different page layouts. Tyler shows us how to create category specific page templates to make this happen.

Well, you can change that. Dave shows us how to allow HTML to WordPress category and taxonomy descriptions. Embed media like YouTube videos and Flickr slideshows. Add text links, images, formatted text or whatever your heart desires.
