    Hi all,

    I am looking to make a job board with WP but to have it somehow be something more like linkedin then simply a craig’s list.

    I thought maybe there is a buddypress theme/extension for this.

    Can any one offer my suggestions on the matter?

    Thanks ModemL,
    But I don’t see this theme works with buddypress, or am I wrong?

    Can any theme just start working with BuddyPress ?

    @talgalili I’ve just started work again on a jobboard plugin for BP. Give me a week and I’ll have a working test site up and running (if the electricity ever comes back on again in my little beach hut that is…)

    Travel Junkie – Sounds great, I can’t wait :)

    Where could I stay updated once you’ll get it to work ?

    Yes, BP works with almost any theme. You’d have to do some adjustments though.

    Most themes are

    header
    content
    sidebar
    footer

    The content area on a regular WP theme has the loop that shows you blog posts. BP can fit inside the content of almost any theme. It’s like extra pages with a loop for BP stuff instead of blog posts.

    So to make BP work on another theme you have to match the content divs. If the theme you want to use has a content div like this.

    div id=”myContent” >
    div id=”padding” >

    Then on the BP page HTML you have to make the content divs match. The BP content structure might look like this.

    div id=”content” >
    div class=”padder” >

    So you’d need to change it to match the the theme.

    @Travel-Junkie … I just signed up at Jobboardr. .. I’ve got a buddypress community that might like this plugin (if you need testing) :D
