It has everything that we were looking for in a job board, plus a helpful and timely support forum. I had several questions related to issues specific to my site, and the support team promptly helped me with each one. My job board site looks beautiful and is easy for members to use!
Frankly, this extension is worth much more than what they charge for it. I looked at so many other job boards, in addition to those that are not Joomla extensions, and some of them cost over $600, even without all of the features that Joombah Jobs includes.
My only suggestion to improve Joombah Jobs would be to add a bulk job upload feature for employers. I think that would give you guys an even bigger edge than you already have.
Again, love the component! No complaints here, thanks again!
It is very feature rich with very flexible options.. very easy to set up and looks modern and professional.
Although you could get errors or bugs from time to time, they very seldom depending on what you doing or IF you know what you doing.
You can pay for a 3, 6 and 12 month subscription which is not recurring.. with those subscriptions, you get friendly, helpful support in the forums where if you have an issue, it is solved as quickly as possible :)
I am very happy with this extension and i wish Joombah Jobs all the best! Well worth the price!
The same happens with the cover letter. The support for is also not great, as I've encountered major problems after a recent upgrade but my issues has still not been addressed several days later.
I havnt found any unusual problems.
Note to review below. Just goto group manager in the JOOMLA user group. Take note of the ID number and then go back to JOOMBAH component setting > global and enter the ID number in the USER GROUP area.... I think they should have made this clear as it took me 2hours to work this out myself!!
Upon a new user registering everything goes fine and they are sent a confirmation email (like we wanted). They then click on the email to activate their account - again no problem.
The problem comes from the fact that once they have activated their account they should be able to log in, right? Well that doesn't happen because Joombah refuses to attach any user to a group. I have checked the settings umpteen times and I can safely say it is not my set up.
I have tried getting a user to sign up without Joombah installed and it works no problem. Do the authors have any ideas?
Installation takes less than 2 minutes and you dont need to do anything other than download from site up load to yours and your ready to go.
You can customize anything and everything. It is a fully functional job board that can have you up and running and take payments in less then an hour.
The most user friendly easy component I have ever installed on my Joomla website.
And besides all that customer support is AMAZING. LEt me repeat that. The support at Joombah Jobs is head and shoulders above anyone else out there. They are amazing. They respond to any questions within hours and provide you multiple solutions for any hitches, and even if you cant do it they will do it for you.
I highly recommend joombah jobs for anyone in the marke for a job board. HIGHLY RECOMMEND & i dont recommend anyone let alone HIGHLY RECOMMEND. They are awesome and put out a quality product for a fair price ($40).
If you want to read in more detail about my experience with them keep reading....
So when I look for a new joomla extension the first thing I look at is functionality useability, & convenience. If that is too complex for you let me break it down to what I look for is.....installation ease, potential of the program, and how easy it will be for my guest or visitors
Not only does JOOMBAH JOBS rate 5 stars in each of these 3 categories they go above and beyond in every other category out there.
For $40 you can have a TOP NOTCH job board that can compete with anyone, I mean anyone, OUTTHER.
Joombah Jobs has thought of everything & is constantly updating their product. When I was first on the market for job board I didn't go with Joombah Jobs and went with 3 others before finally landing on Joombah Jobs. The other 3 are only for internal job board and the other one selling for $115 requires you to wait 24 hours after purchase before being able to acccess and then needs you to be able to code to install. For being the highest job component extension on Joomla it should be a little easier to install, but I am glad it wasn't or I wouldnt have found Joombah Jobs.
when I first purchased it I had some personal problems that lead me to procrastinate exploring it that it ran past my first 3 month subscription so I actually had to pay twice for this prodcut to test it out.
Trust me it had so much potential and promise that I didn't mind doin so, plus the staff deserve it since they did such agood job designing it.
Now after I got into it and started explorign it I found a few VERY VERY VERY minor bugs, like how to add customize fields, how to apply changes to jobs, employers or registration fields. VERY minor stuff.
I had an answer to each hurdle by the end of the night. But here is the kicker.........Right before I was ready to launch my site I realized I needed a button for employers to be able to see there newly posted job on my site because of the template i was using and not only did the staff give me multiple options they realized I didnt have the skill to do it on my own so they went in and did it for me. Then I realized I gave them login info to the wrong site, and instead of writing me off as an idiot, which I was, they simply took the new info and went in to the code in my admin side of my site and did what they needed to to make it work on my site.
For this I will be foreever greatful. The staff at Joombah jobs Strives for excellence, puts out a superior product and their is nothing on the market that comes close to them.
If you need a job board you need joombah jobs compnent period. It is that simple.
Thanks again for making my job so much easier. I think I will have a client for life!
Most of all, the customer service is outstanding. They are willing to do whatever it needs to solve any issues or customizations you have or require!!
Simply 5* !!
A few minor issues with it to begin with which were easily solved and then a harder one that took a bit longer and entailed the developers going through my admin to find the offending problem.
Can't rate these developers highly enough. Superb service!
Customer support continues to be helpful, always courteous, and VERY patient with my questions.
Pros: Works out of the box if you are doing a standard job board. Setup was quick and easy - even for a newbie. Also, being able to choose whether or not our members receive this tool for free or if they pay-as-they-post gives us the ability to grow without having to purchase new software.
Cons: You can't change a field from drop-down to text-only without being more experienced. We would prefer that the City field be text only because no database can have all the possible cities (although Joombah does come close and has been diligent about updating their databases).
A+ Customer service - I trusted the other reviewers and they were right! I have never experienced such timely responses for the several questions this newbie had about this component. In my opinion they went out of their way to answer all of my questions quickly and professionally (even when it was not their software causing my problem).
We are using this extension in free mode to help our membership during these difficult financial times - offering job posting for free to companies in an effort to get our members working again.
I have been doing HTML website design for over 10 years. I have been working with Joomla for only 2 years and since Joomla and the components do most of the work for me, I still consider myself a newbie.
The install was easy. Once we were completed, we were thrilled!
Best of all, the CUSTOMER SERVICE ROCKS! In fact, I started in the forums and ended up having one-on-ones with the developers who customized a module to work around our server's limitation! I have never seen this kind of service, even with several thousand dollar maintenance contracts!!!!!!!
You cannot go wrong with this extension!!!!!!
