Support » Plugin: WP Job Manager » Application Email or URL Field

  • Resolved danmcvay


    In the latest update of Job Manager, this field was changed probably to ensure that it had valid URL or so forth but we were using this for a shortcode to open a form. It has been working great until the last update. I rolled back their live site to 1.32.0 and it works fine.

    Is there a more long-term fix like a filter I can put into the functions.php that you can point me to to allow us to allow the customer to continue using their shortcodes?

    Thanks in advance.

    you can use the ‘job_manager_job_listing_data_fields’ filter to disable the sanitization of the specific field. Then do something like the following:


    You can of course define your own sanitization method too. Have a look here for more information.



    Thank you again for your help, Giannis!

    @gikaragia – there is an enhancement request to allow the application field forced validation to be bypassed, is this what your code (above) allows? I’ve been hoping for a way to do this since the summer.

    Hey @hastibe this disables the sanitization of the email and the url which is different than the enhancement requrest. You could try out what I am suggesting to see if it fits your case.
