    I entered the slug url for my categories but not sure how to get it to show

    I tried
    ewrecruitment.co.uk/job/head-office
    ewrecruitment.co.uk/head-office
    ewrecruitment.co.uk/jobs/head-office

    None work

    What is the text I need before the slug? Not made the plugin visible until everything running the way I want and I really want to sort before I go away after tomorrow.

    Thanks

    Clare

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi clare99,

    You can use this filter:

    https://wpjobmanager.com/document/tutorial-changing-the-job-slugpermalink/#section-7

    I’d recommend using a plugin like Code Snippets to add this code to your site, rather than adding it directly to functions.php:

    Cheers.

    I don’t want to change them. I just want to know what they are so I can browse by category…

    Thanks

    Hi @clare99,

    Can you elaborate on what you mean here? You should have a category dropdown on your Jobs page, under the Keyword and Location search. If not, instead of the [jobs] shortcode, you could use [jobs show_categories="true"] on your Jobs page.

    The homepage has browse by category. I want to just change the links so it goes to categories in your plugin instead of the old one but I can’t work out what the links are. There is a category dropdown on the jobs page but I can’t use the url once I have chosen the category as it looks like this.

    Hi @clare99,

    Is this area what you’re referring to? https://cld.wthms.co/9GgP9Y

    It looks like the old jobs plugin is still taking over categories on your site — do you still have that plugin active on your site? If so, you should definitely deactivate and delete it.

    The category links for WP Job Manager should be something like https://ewrecruitment.co.uk/job-category/it/

    Yes that is the area. I have not deleted the old one until the new one works. I just needed new links, I don’t think it is taking over anything.

    When I click the category link you gave above (even after temporarily disabling the old plugin) it directs me here, not a list of IT jobs

    I have added jobs on both but not enabled site users to see any of the new plugin aspects until I can get that to work… then I will swap everything over and enable users to actually see the submission form, job search etc. Until I know the categories I can’t make the switch. Most things now resolved…

    any progress? I am waiting to do this and right now we have paid for extras we can’t use until I can just update these links. It shoud be simple…

    I have a feeling the other plugin may be interfering with WP Job Manager. Is there a way you can temporarily toggle it off? You could test this on a staging site rather than on your production (live) site. Many hosts provide a staging service, where you can do testing without affecting the live site. You can ask your host about this. If they don’t give you a staging site, you could try WP Staging or Duplicator:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-staging/
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

    > right now we have paid for extras we can’t use until I can just update these links

    If you’ve paid for our official addons, you should be contacting us via email.
    Please use the form I’ve linked below:

    https://wpjobmanager.com/support/

    Make sure to contact us from the email address you used when you purchased your license(s), so we’re able to find your account.

    Cheers!

    I temporarily disabled the old one and checked when you first mentioned the possibility a few weeks ago and it still did not work so nothing to do with the old plugin. I reactivated after I realised it makes no difference.

    This query is nothing to do with add ons, I am just saying that the costs are currently being wasted because I can’t let the users see the application until we sort out the categories and it is taking a long time.

    Hi @clare99,

    I understand that, but note that if you have active licenses for paid addons, you would get support more quickly by emailing us.

    Have you set up pages to display only jobs by those categories, using the shortcode? For example, for the Sales & Marketing category, you’d create a new page, using this shortcode:

    [jobs categories="sales-marketing"]

    Then, when that page was created, you’d use that page’s URL to change the hyperlink on the Sales & Marketing “button” under your “Browse By Category” area.

    That should display jobs matching only that category. The way the jobs are displaying on this page: https://ewrecruitment.co.uk/jobs/sales-marketing/ …is not native to WP Job Manager. I assume this is a remnant of how the custom theme was built?

    Cheers.

    thanks – the shortcode on a new page works well.

    Glad to hear it!

    Marking as resolved. 🙂
