WP Broadbean is a WordPress plugin designed to work alongside the Broadbean job posting and distribution system allowing jobs written in Broadbean to show in your WordPress site.

The plugin adds custom post types and taxonomies to allow you to add jobs. More importantly it allows your site to accept feed data sent by Broadbean to create jobs on your site.

The plugin requires some collaboration with the Broadbean integrations team. This is because they need to add your WordPress site as a posting destination, and to build a “feed” to your WordPress sites endpoint, provided by this plugin, in the form of XML data. They are likely to charge you for this service.

This add-on not only provides you with access to limited email support, but it gives you full access to all the plugins documentation. This includes articles on how to setup and install the plugin, submit your feed build to the Broadbean integrations team, but also includes a plugin to add to your site which analyses your install and provides a readme file which Broadbean can used to help gether the required information to build your sites job feed.


The shortcodes add-on provides a flexible shortcode to allow you to add a list of jobs anywhere you site supports shortcode output. This is great for showing latest jobs on any page, post or sidebar area. It also includes an ajax style load more option, give you the ability to include you full job listing page on any page of your website. The plugin also includes the ability to use different templates for your shortcodes, so the job output can be different in different places on your website.

Auto-expire jobs

This add-on takes the number of days set for jobs to expire when they are posted and then calculates an expiry date. The plugin then deletes the job on that date. This works for any jobs added to your site after this add-in is installed.

Job search form

The WP Broadbean search add-on allows you to add a job search form to your site, allowing candidates to search for jobs by location, type, industry and skill as well as allowing them to set a minimum salary and search via keywords.

All the add-ons above are for WP Broadbean version 3.0 or higher, unless otherwise stated.

For the sake of clarity, the WP Broadbean plugin is not affiliated in any way with Broadbean Technology Limited.

IMPORTANT NOTICE BEFORE UPDATING: WP Broadbean version 3.0 is a complete rewrite of the plugin to make it more stable, secure and extensible. If you are running a version of the plugin prior to version 3.0, updating without testing and development will break your Broadbean integration.
