To integrate JobsPikr into your WordPress website, you need to follow the steps given below:
Part A: Generating XML Feed URL (Steps to be followed on https://app.jobspikr.com)
In these steps, you have to create your queries and generate XML feeds through the dashboard which will be later integrated with your WordPress website.
Step 2. After saving the query, navigate to 'export data' under Data Download as highlighted in the image below:
Step 3. On the Export Data section, click on Add New Export as shown in the below image:
After proceeding, the following section will appear:
Step 4. Choose the saved query from a previously saved search query, then click on XML Feed and enter a maximum number of jobs to be added in your XML Feeds on daily basis and finally click on the Save button to generate XML Feed as highlighted in the image below:
Note: This XML file will get refreshed daily with newly available jobs and can be used to integrate with
Step 5. After scheduling the XML Feed, copy the XML feed URL generated.
The scheduled export will look as shown in the image:
Click on the Feed URL, to check the generated XML feed and copy the URL. The generated feed would as shown in the image below:
The XML feed URL would be in the following format, where * represents the details related to the user account and search query:
Part B: Importing XML Feeds having job records from JobsPikr to WordPress website
Step 1. Install the job board plugin on your WordPress website. Among the popular ones are many WordPress themes based on WP Job Manager. You can check them out at https://wpjobmanager.com/product-category/themes/. JobsPress is another popular theme that could be used - https://themeforest.net/item/jobpress-premium-wordpress-job-manager-theme/18596344
Step 2. Now you will have to import the jobs on your job board. To import the XML Feed URL generated in Part A, this plugin could be used - https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-job-manager-xml-csv-listings-import/
Note: To use the advanced feature like automated scheduling, you'd require paid/pro - version of this plugin. For more details check out this - https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-all-import/
Step 3. While importing the feeds using the plugin, use the field "jobs_datum" to fetch the job record. After this map the field names to sync the data from JobsPikr to your job board in an expected manner.
For example - the field name in JobsPikr could be "job_title" and your plugin could call it "JobTitle". Such
configuration changes will have to be made from your end.
Once these steps are done, your job board site should be good to go live.
1. While searching and importing data, we would recommend using the inferred fields provided by JobsPikr for all the address-related fields - i.e. inferred_city, inferred_state, and inferred_country. These are standardized fields and thus, would be preferred.
2. There are some other plugins that are not based on WP job manager (like https://wpjobboard.net/) and import solutions other than WP All import (like https://gofetchjobs.com/) which we haven't mentioned here, but all these basically depend upon integration via an XML file and the underlying steps remain the same, which are supported well by JobsPikr.
