FAQ

Installation (2)

Job board pages and admin section gives me 404 or HTTP 500 eror
Visit INSTALL ISSUES FIXES page to see steps how to resolve common problems.
I installed script into a subfolder as (site.com/jobboard) and it gives me URL problems
Job board does not support running from a subfolder. If you want to keep your main domain (site.com) better option is to install SJS into its own public_html folder and create a subdomain (jobs.site.com) pointing to the folder.

Customization (3)

How to change landing page content, adjust my logo size and add my own background image?
SJS Customizer section is dedicated for landing page content management and design customization.
Can I customize the design, develop custom features or change the source code?
There are no limitations associated with the source code users can edit it, develop custom features or customize the design for their projects. More information can be found in our T&C’s
In the contact page map there is still a default location how can I change this to mine?
You can change the contact page map location in SJS Admin -> SEO -> Google Maps settings. 

General (7)

We are a recruitment agency that works in a specific industry, looking for a job board. Could you guide us how could we use SJS software?

Basically as a recruitment agency, you can customize the project to match your brand / business with no reference to our product.

Attach the job board into your existing website – or install it on a new domain.

Set up your account and populate it with data of candidates and companies.

The operation is then up to you. You can either promote the job board, let companies sign up, post jobs and monetize on job fees / spotlight ads / resume DB access, job packages etc.

Or you can simply use the job board yourself, post jobs and collect new candidate profiles that you can market directly to your clients.

Are there any live websites using SJS?
I locked myself out of the admin. How to restore the access?
Reset your password directly in the database. Steps:

a) open phpMyAdmin and look for the “admin” table

b) click edit, type in your new password and select a “MD5()” function from the functions list. Then save.

After this you will be able to access the admin with your new password selected.

When I subscribe to job alert or sign up as employer I do not receive any email
You need to configure website mailer first. Please see MAILER TUTORIAL
Can I use SJS on my custom domain without any reference to the product?
SJS is a turnkey solution and was created to be “yours”. You can run the board with your brand, job types, categories, language and content freely. 
How does the product support work
To learn about our support your can read PRODUCT SUPPORT pages.
How to test my mailer setup?
a) turn on the debug mode. Open “_config/config.envs.php” and change:

‘ini_error_reporting’ => 1,
‘ini_display_errors’ => ‘On’,

c) paste the code below into e.g. “index.php” and save (you might need to change the quotes after copying):

$DEBUG_EMAIL = “[email protected]“;
$transporter = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance($settings[“mailer_smtp_host”], $settings[“mailer_smtp_port”], $settings[“mailer_smtp_secure_connection_prefix”])
->setUsername($settings[“mailer_smtp_username”])
->setPassword($settings[“mailer_smtp_password”]);

$mailer = Swift_Mailer::newInstance($transporter);

$message = Swift_Message::newInstance(“Email debugging”)
->setFrom(array(ADMIN_EMAIL))
->setTo($DEBUG_EMAIL)
->setContentType(“text/html”)
->setBody(“Example debug text body”);

$result = $mailer->send($message);
var_dump($result); die();

Replace orange with your email. Reload the web. “bool(1)” on the screen means emails setup is correct and it works. Otherwise you will see the exact problem / reason why it is not working.

Hosting (2)

What is the difference between base and complete hosted packages. Base is 39 dollars and complete is 59 so whats the difference?

To host complete version of the job board – product license is needed:

https://simplejobscript.com/downloads/simplejobscript-complete/

free version does not have any license. Because of this the $59 hosting plan already includes this license, discounted by 20%.

That means when you get the hosting you also automatically get the https://simplejobscript.com/downloads/simplejobscript-complete/ product and you can download it.

Can I use my custom domain?

Yes you can use your custom domain and customize the job board content so that there is no reference to our product whatsoever.

Updates (2)

In my admin it says there is a new version of SJS. But I do not see how to update?

You need to make sure your job board license is activated. You need to first save your license key in order to receive updates. After you will see an “UPDATE” button that will take you to website where you can download new patch and read instructions how to update your project.

Update says it needs to import a database change and run SQL query. What is it and how to do it?

SQL is a language use to manipulate the database. All you have to do is you need to:

a) access your database by signing in via phpMyAdmin or other DB management tool

b) import “updates.sql” file from the downloaded patch

You can see a video tutorial shown by Hostgator how to import a SQL file here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jW5lrS6EUPM
