Support » Plugin: WP Job Manager » Buddypress integration – issue deleting jobs

  • Resolved mlovelock



    Great plugin – I’m attempting to integrate WP Job Manager with Buddypress, and I’ve managed to successfully integrate the dashboard and job submission form into the Buddypress member profile through a small plugin, to allow members to manage jobs directly from their profile.

    However, the profile sections don’t use pages, so I’m encountering the same problem as this thread in that using do_shortcode(‘[job_dashboard]’) fails to call the ‘delete’ and ‘mark filled’ actions –

    Any thoughts as to how I can call the actions with having to use the shortcode within the_content ?

    If I can get this final part of the main plugin playing nicely with BP I was thinking of trying to integrate the Resume Manager with BP too 🙂

  • A quick update:

    Currently using a workaround (hack) by adding the following to the shortcode_action_handler() function in shortcodes class:

    if ( bp_is_active( 'jobmanager' ) ){

    .. where ‘jobmanager’ is my custom buddypress plugin. This works of course, but would love to find a tidier way to do this in the end. Once I’ve tidied up my plugin would you be interested in seeing it, or perhaps adding Buddypress support?

    Marking as resolved for now as I’ve at least got it working.

    Would be curious to see it when done, but I’m not much of a BP user.

    Hi. That is Great. I want this too.
    Can you help me?

    Hi @defoli / @mikejolley,

    Glad to share it – once I’ve got the site in question up and running and the code tidied up a little, I’ll let you both know.

    @mlovelock Please also consider me 🙂

    Maybe you should make your own PlugIn?

    I would pay for it to get WP Job Manager integrated with BuddyPress!

    And I would really love to see it responsive for mobile usage 😉

    Kudos for taking this on. I’ve been on the hunt for this integration for years. Curious to know if your integration extends group functionality as well. The non-profit whose site I run posts listings based on countries, each of which has a dedicated bp group. Would sure be sweet to have each country be able to submit and display their listings along with a global listings page. In any case, more power to you!

    Hi @mlovelock,

    so you have a rough idea when you can share the code?

    Is till end of may realistic?

    And will you merge the code into WO Job Manager or release a plugin…?

    Sorry for all the questions 😉

    Kind regards

    Hi @mlovelock – I too am greatly interested in this plugin if you choose to release it. I would be willing to pay.

    Hi @mlovelock,

    I hope you are fine and as it looks like quite busy with your project. If you think it will take a while also no problem but even a rough timeframe would be great 🙂 Maybe we can help if something is not working or does need work?

    Kind regards

    +1 from me
    really like the idea!

    Hi @mlovelock,

    Were you able to successfully integrate BuddyPress with WP Job Manager? I’m keen to do the same thing and was wondering if you had figured this out!

    Thank you,


    Have any of you tried this plugin:

    I’m testing it to add pages to the BP profile area whereby I allow candidates/employers to manage their bookmarks, resumes, jobs. Seems to work fine so far.

    I’m also using a roles plugin to make various menu items/pages visible based on whether the user is a candidate or employer. See:

    Might work for some of you.




    Hi @mlovelock

    I am also interested in your (hack), because I also use BuddyPress tab to set the appearance of the job dashboard. I would be willing to pay to have the hack that allows me to resolve this conflict.

    Thank you very much in advance.



    @mikejolley maybe this is a good time to release an addon for BuddyPress integration?

    Kind regards

    Hello mlovelock!

    I’m also on the list to access the code that allows some integration between WP Job manager with BuddyPress!

    Please consider putting on github or even sell it!
