Pages settings 

Once you install the JobBoardWP plugin, it creates these pages:
  • Jobs - The jobs list page is where users can see all published jobs on your website. 
  • Jobs Dashboard - This allows you to manage your own jobs.  
  • Post Job - This allows you to post new jobs or edit already posted/draft jobs. 

Page "Jobs" contains a shortcode [jb_jobs /] that shows a list of all published jobs on your website. Users can use this page to search and filter job posts.

Page "Jobs Dashboard" contains a shortcode  [jb_jobs_dashboard /] this allows users to publish drafts, edit or delete posted jobs. This is only available for logged-in users.

Page "Post Job" contains a shortcode [jb_post_job /] that gives users the opportunity to create a job post. 

You can create these pages manually at [wp-admin> Pages] if they were lost. Once the page is created, you should configure it using options on the page [wp-admin> Job Board > Settings > General > Pages]
