[Job] Multivendor Module

Dear All,
I’m thinking to build a mutl-vendor platform on ERPnext for freelancers where everyone can sell hist services by

  1. Checking the freelancer page, book meeting / call via zoom and pay online
  2. experts can write post (like social media) about their domain expertise
    how i can leverage ERPnext for that.

before you begin new project try and send a fix for GitHub - erpnext/foundation: Website for ERPNext Foundation. It’ll fix the existing job portal https://erpnext.org/erpnext-jobs


Sorry, my bad, not familiar with the processes, not sure what exactly to do?
i’m new in the community.

If you click any job on erpnext-jobs page it will throw an error:

As a developer the process to fix this will be:

  • clone and install the app on local bench/site
  • add some entries into the portal jobs as a system manager
  • try to render web page debug the jinja template error
  • fix and submit the PR to erpnext/foundation repo

This one is a long pending issue. Will take this up tomorrow

Planning to drop erpnext.org - maybe we can use this forum for jobs?

That will increase commercial activity on forum.

People will have job posts in search results when they search for general help.


I agree. Keeping this forum for anything other than technical discussions will dilute its purpose.
On top of that, we will have to search for opportunities from the discussions. tagging is not strictly followed here so the people using these posts will have a tough time.

I have raised the PR.

Why not just open another sub-domain and setup the same open source forum package on something like:


Have the vendors using the site agree to manage the forum to reduce your support labor. Make it purely participant driven for service and support.

Well, at least it is another idea…

BKM :nerd_face:


This PR is merged. Kindly update the app on the server for erpnext.org.
@revant_one @gavindsouza

@mujeerhashmi I tried updating the site on 25th November, the patches ran fine, and the frappe_theme issue was fixed via frappe/frappe_theme#55.

But seems like the foundation app needs fixing too. I think we’ll have to complete migration guides of v13 & v14 to make sure this works [ref: Home · frappe/frappe Wiki · GitHub].

I’ve made fixes to the foundation app (via erpnext/foundation#477) and deployed the changes. The migration was successful. Job Board is functional now :slight_smile:



If I click on “Post a new job”, I only get a blank page :thinking:

We are looking at procuring the ERPNext Enterprise Platform Service. We have tried to contact ERPNext through the Contact Us page. However, that doesn’t seem to be submitting our request which is why I am posting this here. We will appreciate it if someone from ERPNext can contact us through [info@interranetworks.com] as there is no way to contact ERPNext on the website about this so that we can do business.
Thank you very much.
