The Jobify add-on for WPSOLR is deceptively simple.

Configure WPSOLR as usual, activate the add-on, and that’s it.

All your jobs search are now accelerated as if by magic. No extra-setup, no knowledge of Elasticsearch or Solr are even required.

Below are explained the steps to activate the add-on. Notice that most steps are optional.

If you prefer watching the full tutorial showing the setup of WPSOLR with Jobify:

With Elasticsearch:


1) Create an index

For Elasticsearch:

For Solr:

For SolrCloud:

You can also want to search for more informations on index creation, Elasticsearch, Apache Solr, or Elasticsearch/Solr hosting providers. Or just browse the Elasticsearch/Solr forums.


2) Activate the Jobify add-on

The only action required for the add-on is to activate it. The add-on will then operate in the background to transform  mySQL queries in Elasticsearch or Solr queries. Therefore, no other Jobify configuration is necessary.

3) Select the archive types to speed up

Pick the archive search page (which you want to accelerate with WPSOLR), among the 8 archive types.

4) Index the “Jobs” post type

This step is mandatory. Select the “Jobs” post type, and its taxonomies and custom fields in screen 2.2: items will be indexed, and only then their custom fields can be used as a facet or a sort in Elasticsearch or Solr.

5) Index your content

You created your index, configured it. It’s now time to fill it with your data (selected in screen 2.2):

8) Nothing else!

Yes, that’s it. From now on, WPSOLR will replace your Jobify MySQL queries with faster Elasticsearch/Solr queries.
