Indeed Apply Shortcode

Easily accept job applications from any device, including mobile.

Common Issues

I added the shortcode to my post but nothing displays on the frontend

The shortcode was built to not display errors on the frontend of your site if the plugin is not configured correctly

Below are troubleshooting tips to try before posting a support topic:

  • Ensure that you have configured your API Token and Secret on the Indeed Apply Settings page
  • Ensure your email address in the shortcode is correct, the plugin will filter out an invalid email address.
  • Ensure that the shortcode attributes are lowercase, and that their values are in quotes.

Where is the Indeed Apply Settings Page?

You can find the Indeed Apply Settings Page under the main 'Settings' Menu in the WordPress admin.

Note: The Indeed Apply Settings page is only visible to Users with Administrator and Editor privileges.

Where can I get an Indeed Apply API Token and Key?

You can generate an API Token and Key at https://secure.indeed.com/account/apikeys

  1. You will need to create a free Indeed Account / or sign into your existing Indeed Account to request an API key
  2. Once you login you will see a section titled 'Add Indeed Apply on your website'
  3. Add a description of your API usage (e.g. your website/company name) and click, 'Add API Key'
  4. Copy and Paste your Token and Secret onto the Indeed Apply Settings Page

Why do I need an Indeed Apply API Token and Key?

Indeed Apply Shortcode encrypts your email address and never displayed in the HTML or to the applicant. This is done to protect your email from spambots and email abuse.

To do this, you have to request an API Token and Key so we can decrypt your email address when an applicant submits an application and it is processed on our secure servers. The email you provide to this plugin will only be used to process applications submitted through Indeed Apply.

Is there a limit on the number of Indeed Apply Shortcodes I can use across my site?

No, there is no limit. The plugin supports multiple Indeed Apply shortcodes per page. At Indeed we’ve found putting one Indeed Apply Button on each job posting works best.

Why are email addresses showing up as @indeedemail.com?

Job applications processed by Indeed Apply are submitted with an @indeedemail.com email address. This protects the job seeker's privacy, reduces spam, and helps us increase applicant quality. Messages to @indeedemail.com email address will be sent to the job seeker's original email address.

Where can I use the Indeed Apply Shortcode?

The Indeed Apply shortcode can be added to any post/page/custom post type. If you would like to use any shortcode in your widget areas you can add the following line to your theme's functions.php file to allow shortcodes to be used:

add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

Developers who want to use the Indeed Apply shortcode in their themes or plugins can use the WordPress function do_shortcode in their PHP code.

Assuming your Page/Post Title is the Job Title, you can use this code in your template files, while inside the WordPress Loop, replacing the all caps text with relevant info for your company:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[indeed-apply jobtitle="' . get_the_title() .'" emailapplicationto=" YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS" joblocation=" JOB LOCATION " jobcompanyname=" COMPANY NAME'); ?>

I’m still having trouble, where can I get support?
