Only allowing certain users to post Job


Is it possible to only show the add job button to users when they are logged in and have a certain role?

    Hi @Michelle,

    I hope you are well today.

    Please add this code to your theme functions.php or use mu-plugins

    add_filter('ig_view_file', 'custom_add_job_form_view', 10, 2);
    function custom_add_job_form_view($view_path, $view)
        if ($view == 'job-form/main') {
            $roles = array('role_can_post_here');
            global $current_user;
            $can_add_job = false;
            foreach ($current_user->roles as $role) {
                if (in_array($role, $roles)) {
                    $can_add_job = true;
            if ($can_add_job == false) {
                $view_path = get_stylesheet_directory() . '/not_the_role.php';
        return $view_path;

    In the code above, you will notice this variable
    $roles = array('role_can_post_here');
    This is where you can define the role, which can add new job. Example, here is the variable allow subscriber & editor can add new job
    $roles = array('subscriber','editor');
    And next, please download the attachment, and copy it to your current active theme.
    In the file you will see a very simple code like this
    <?php _e("Your message text here",'domain') ?>
    Please update the message text to your need.
