Hello Gary Pendergast,
Thank you for your brilliant plugin Job manager which I am using to develop a recruiting website.
I have managed to customize the job list template on my local dev site and it looks great!
There are a few things I was wondering about though:
1. It was mentioned in one of the other wordpress forum posts http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-job-manager-shortcode-link-url?replies=7 about a year ago, about the ability to share a job/email the job link to a friend. You said you would include a new template to Version 0.7.1. I have Version 0.7.17 but cannot find any documentation on how to add this share link, did I overlook something? I noticed the company Blue Tree Search (that you mention in your blog as they are using job manager) have managed to integrate a plugin : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/share-this/ in their individual job template (example here: http://www.bluetreesearch.com/candidate-services/jobs/senior-accountant-2/ ) but whenever I use the html code that comes with share this, it breaks up the page, whether I use it in the Job list or individual job. Ideally we would like to add a 'share this' or if not possible, a simple, 'send to friend' link within the job list, do you know if this is possible and if so, how? Do you know how Blue Tree managed to pop it in their individual job template without it breaking?
In case it helps, this is the HTML code provided by 'ShareThis' that breaks up my job list page and indivudual job pages:
<span class='st_facebook_buttons' st_title='<?php the_title(); ?>' st_url='<?php the_permalink(); ?>' displayText='share'></span><span class='st_twitter_buttons' st_title='<?php the_title(); ?>' st_url='<?php the_permalink(); ?>' displayText='share'></span><span class='st_email_buttons' st_title='<?php the_title(); ?>' st_url='<?php the_permalink(); ?>' displayText='share'></span><span class='st_sharethis_buttons' st_title='<?php the_title(); ?>' st_url='<?php the_permalink(); ?>' displayText='share'></span>
2. My client wants a summary for each job in the job list and for only a few jobs -not every one- a 'more info' link to the individual job. What I have done to attempt to achieve this, is within the job form settings, added an optional field which is [job_field6].
The job list is displayed in a table with job_field1 up to job_field4 on the left hand side (job_field5 is the 'more information' that will display in the individual page unless left blank), and on the right hand side it displays the 'apply now' link, an area where I hope to have a 'share this' link (see question 1) and job_field6. If left blank, nothing displays. If the client copy/pastes [job_link]more info [/job_link] in the job field when creating a new job, I had hoped the 'more info' link would display in the job list. However, it seems not to accept HTML as it displays the full text '[job_link]more info [/job_link]' See screenshot of my job list. Is there any other way to achieve an ad hoc 'more info' link for the client to put in themselves from the 'add new job' area (preferably through the job_field6 area)? I'm trying to avoid them going in the Job Manager settings in case something is messed up.
3. Is it possible for the individual job template to be able to upload a word document or pdf file by the client within the 'add new job' area (from job_field5)? My client wants to attach .doc's or .pdf's for more information rather than having his back office type out all the information in a bid to save time, is this possible?
The end result will be an individual job page with either the word document or pdf showing for the potential applicant, or a link for the potential applicant to download the files.
Again, thank you ever so much for the brilliant plugin, it does pretty much everything we need it to do!
Hope you can answer my questions.. Marjolijn
