    Hi there @laurence

    I hope you had a great weekend!

    By default, the Jobs & Experts plugin does not support comments for individual listings.

    But you can enable that by adding the following to your active theme's functions.php file:

    add_action('init', 'comment_support_for_job');
    function comment_support_for_job()
        add_post_type_support('jbp_job', 'comments');
    add_filter('comments_open', 'enable_comment_jobs');
    function enable_comment_jobs($open)
        global $post;
        if ($post->post_type == 'jbp_job') {
            $open = 'open';
        return $open;

    Props to @Hoang Ngo for this awesome little snippet. :slight_smile:

    As for the breadcrumbs, that would depend on the theme you are using. So... which theme are you using? :slight_smile:

    Hi @laurence,

    I hope you are well today.

    I don't have the theme for now, so can you please send it to me, via:
    - Mark to my attention - ATTN: Hoang Ngo
    - Link back to this thread
    - Please upload the theme to dropbox and send me the link
    - Include any relevant URLS for your site

    On the contact form, select "I have a different question", this ensures it comes through and gets assigned to me.


    Notice that the pages created via Jobs don't seem like a standard custom post type. Where i would like the ability to utilize other plugins on those pages...

    You can use the Jobs & Experts Pages add-on, activate it by go to Admin->Jobs->Settings, you will see the add-on tables, and the addon. From here, you can use the normal wordpress pages :slight_smile:

    If you have any issues please don't hesitate to let us know so we can assist

    Best regards,
    Hoang Ngo
