Thank you for purchasing our theme. We're as excited as you are about the possibilities before you. Finally, its going to be far less complicated to make your Wordpress website pages look and feel the way you want them. We built this theme for everyone. It is perfect for newcomers to creating a Wordpress site. Code is only poetry to people who know what it all means. To everyone else it is a strange and very foreign language. We get that and built everybody's requests right into the front end options. For all our seasoned Wordpress pros, we know how frustrating it can be trying to finish a client's project. We think you're about to discover you can go from start to finish faster than ever and produce a smashing looking site in far less time than you ever thought possible. Note: Be sure to refer to the information outlined in the following documentation for the WPEventBuilder theme while building your new site. We have explained much of what you need to know to create great looking pages easily using the features built into the theme with you in mind. If you cannot locate the answer here, sign up for our support forum. We do not answer support questions on Theme Forest neither via email.


Before you attempt to upload your theme you must unzip the downloaded folder. Why? The extra files it contains can cause strange issues to occur in your theme's functionality. Only upload the inner zip folder and only install your theme through the Wordpress admin installer located under "Appearance" "Themes" "Install".

If this way to install the theme fails, we recommend to use FTP. Open your FTP client and move to your WordPress installation path. Drag & Drop the "theme" folder into the following path: wp-content/themes/ Now go to your "Dashboard" "Appearance" Theme and activate the theme.

We highly recommend to change the permalinks to anything else excerpt default. Otherwise the ajax pagination will not work.

WPEventBuilder theme comes with Visual Composer ($28) included.

After you have activated our theme you might recognize a message appearing at the top of your dashbaord telling you to install the plugin.

In order for the listing author to receive the notification email a few things need to be configured.

Field Settings

The first step is to create a new field on the form you wish to use. We need to create a hidden field. Add the field like a standard Gravity Form field. Once the field is added, please configure to the following settings:

Field Label Listing ID
Default Value {entry_id}

Notification Settings

If you wish to have more than one notification (e.g a notification to the site administrator that this form was used) then you need to configure your first notification with the following settings:

Send To Email
Send To Email no-reply@yoursite.com

These settings must be exact in order to avoid all extra notifications being sent to the listing author.

Now copy the form id and paste it in Dashboard -> WPJobus Options -> Resume Settings/Job Settings/Company Settings. You can create different forms for each of listing type.

You must create a separate email notification that will be sent to the listing owner. You can use the default Ninja Form email notification but you need to change the "To" field value to the following:

Send To To
Send To Email no-reply@yoursite.com
Now copy the shortcode and paste it in Dashboard -> WPJobus Options -> Resume Settings/Job Settings/Company Settings. You can create different forms for each of listing type.


Simply activate the Contact Form 7 plugin and you're set! Just remember to assign the form you want to use in "Job Listings > Settings" or "Resumes > Settings"

In the "To" field for "Mail" make sure you enter a valid email address. It does not matter what it is since the listing email address will be used instead; but it needs to be valid. We recommend no-reply@yoursite.com
