School Extension Recomendation

Post by estice » Fri Jul 30, 2021 11:07 pm

Hello, I am a teacher/webmaster for a high school Joomla site (wkhscounselors.com). We are updating the site and are in need of an extension that our school counselors can post scholarships for HS 12th graders, and the 12th-grade students can search for scholarships. We used to use an extension called "Jobgrok", but it apparently had lots of security issues and is no longer available. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I thought I should update - Here is an example of the scholarship search page from our old website:

http://oldsite.wkhscounselors.com/index ... holarships

Again... any component suggestions that will accomplish the same functionality - school counselors can post scholarships for HS 12th graders, and the 12th-grade students can search for scholarships - would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know there's any specific extension.

You could develop your own custom component using Fabrik. (It's not on JED but is a well known extension - just search Google "fabrikar").

The old extension mentioned above looks like it would originally have been for posting job vacancies, so maybe something similar like https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... t/js-jobs/ and could be adapted for scholarship search and posting?

Or maybe any of these: https://extensions.joomla.org/category/ ... cruitment/

I don't know if any will suit specifically.

Agreed with using Fabrik (https://fabrikar.com/).

But by looking at your old site, don't you think it is quite achievable with Joomla native custom field? ;)
