Job Manager
Display Custom Field on Applications List in WP Admin (4 posts)

    In WordPress's Admin, on the 'Job Manager > Settings > Job Form Settings' you can add a custom field and have it displayed on the 'Job Manager > Jobs List'.

    Does anyone know the code to add to the 'admin-applications.php' plugin file to add a custom field from the Job Form Settings e.g. 'job_field6' so it will display on the title of an Application as shown under 'Job Manager > Applications'?

    Reason being my client has several jobs of the same title, but different locations and a custom field with a reference code would be massively helpful to them - I just can't figure out what code returns the custom fields in the 'admin-applications.php' template.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Above query now unrequired.

    New issue, checkboxes on the 'Job Manager > Settings > Job Form Settings' are not saving when updated - any ideas why this is? I have 3 sites set up the same, one works fine, the other two are having none of it!

    Any suggestions or resolutions appreciated.

    Could you write down how did you manage to resolve the first issue?

    Hi There,

    I just tweaked line 420 of admin-applications.php from:

    $parentstr[] = "<a href='?page=jobman-list-jobs&jobman-jobid=$data->ID'>$data->ID - $data->post_title</a>";

    to read:

    $parentstr[] = "<a href='?page=jobman-list-jobs&jobman-jobid=$data->ID'>Ref: $data->job_field6 - $data->post_title</a> [Post ID: $data->ID]";

    This [ Ref: $data->job_field6 ] just adds the output of the field required - in my case it was ID number 6, with a prefix of 'Ref' for reference.

    Hope this helps!

    P.S. As for my second query, I ended up manually changing a value in the DB.
