microjobengine - micro job marketplace wordpress theme

Admin settings area is a visual display of the most significant information needed to build and manage your site. In fact, some designers tend to ignore this section design since it isn’t the same level of importance as the front-end. However, a well-designed admin panel is extremely vital for you to control your site and save an amount of time. Realizing that, MicrojobEngine 1.1.2 has arrived, including new admin area with a high level of interaction and customization on laptop, iPad & tablet devices.

In this tutorial, we will focus on introducing to you new changes and improvements in back-end. The post is divided into 3 main sections:

  • Admin Settings
  • Customizer Bar
  • Social Menu

Admin Settings

From this latest version, once you have activated your theme, you will be redirected to the MicrojobEngine Welcome Page to install your sample data, configure and manage your site.

In case your theme was activated, please go to Engine Settings > Welcome to visit this page.

Welcome page 1

MicrojobEngine Welcome Page contains all resources needed to build  your site

Welcome page 2

Theme instructions, blog, EngineThemes news feed, & theme version are also displayed in this area

As you can see in MicrojobEngine demo, we have re-arranged the menu bar and left out all neutral and clutter fields. So, all sections in the Engine Settings block is quite different from that in old versions. See images below:

Engine Settings

Install Demo

When you click on the “Install demo” button on the welcome page, a new tab is opened redirecting you to the install demo page.

Besides, if you click on the link of mJob name under “Order info” section, a new tab is opened redirecting you to the order detail on the front-end instead of which in the back-end as before.

Member List

Several sort fields are added in the member list section. From now on, you can easier sort members on your site by date joined, order delivery or pending account. Additionally, search field is appropriately aligned.

      Hello Akmal,

      Thank you for your interest in our product.

      Currently, the MjE theme does support both desktop and mobile version. However, we don’t yet have provided an in-app store for apple device and android.

      Hope it clarifies your concern.

    Je souhaite juste savoir est ce que le thème nécessite des plugins payants pour les fonctionnalités présentes en démo

    Hi there,
    Have been watching your theme for a while and must say ..great job!!
    Couple pre-sale questions though:
    – Has your paypal failure “issue” been resolved (was supposed to be fixed by Sept 10)?
    – Can “mjob” all the places on website be replaced with some other word (jobs, gigs etc)?
    – Can another payment method be installed (Sprite, Authorize.net, paypal Express etc)?
    – Can it be possible to have “combination” of free and paid job postings. Currently I noticed it doesn’t let me choose $0 for Standard postings! It would be nice to have both options simultaneously so that free users can post limited number of postings and paid members can opt for more postings, as needed.
    – Is it possible for sellers and buyers to extend “job completion time” to further specific number of days based on mutual understanding and after which with the permission of Admin.
    – Noticed “Language Change” option. How exactly it works? Can the language of whole site will change at the click of a button (by pressing “Website Language” under Translations). What “Translator” do? Can extra language be added?
    – Has “video” and “favorite” options been added as per version 1.1.3?
    – Is it possible to find jobs by Country and Language?
    Thanks a lot in advance,
    Kind Regards,

      Hello Kit,

      Thank you for your kind words, I really appreciate it.

      Regarding your questions,

      – A new update with PayPal issue resolved has been released on September, 10th.
      – The theme provides a translator tool which can help you translate (replace) all text in your website.
      – Currently, the theme supports 2 payment gateways: Paypal, 2CO (only for posting mjob). In case you want to use another gateway you have to consult with a developer to help you achieve it.
      – As for a “combination” of free and paid job postings, this requires some code customization and our TS can assist you with it.
      – It’s such a pity but there’s no other way for both seller and buyer to extend the “job completion time”.
      – The theme translator tool is to help you translate all text in your website:
      Going to Dashboard => Engine settings => Theme options => Translation => Choose a language (Website language & translator language) => Find the field (Hit Ctrl + F and type in the keyword) then translate the text.
      – There’s no “video” and “favorite” option available at the moment.
      – The MjE theme does support search through job title and content and not country or language.

      Hope it clarifies your concern.

    I love this theme but I have one question before I consider to buy this theme:
    – Is it possible to include a VAT above the job price. So for example. Peter posts his mJob for a price of $5. Theo is interested. When Theo confirmed the choise, the price will increase with the amount of VAT. For example, if this is 10% the new price will be $5,50. This VAT will be hold apart for the tax authorities. Peter gets his revenue, excluding the VAT.

    In my country, it is a must that a company has the control over the VAT.


    Kind regards,

    I assumed to have your child theme installation looks exactly like your demo on your website. But after I installed, it looks like I have to set it up a lot. What did I miss?
