Support » Plugin: WP Job Manager » External link to job listing page showing specific job type

    Hi,

    I searched through the forum and couldn’t find this same question, however I did note a solution that is similar in regard to “featured” opportunities RSS feeds and possibly similar to discussion about base URLs and categories, so I’m hoping my question is within the possible and wouldn’t require a lot of customization.

    Anyway, I’m wondering if there is a way to link directly to the job listings page and display only one job_type. My use case is that I have an external website that references a specific “job type” to which I will link to the job listings page on my wordpress site. It would be best if I could display only the one job type from that external link. I was hoping maybe there was some URL fragment such as website/?job_type=desired-type

    Hey @benchwarmer,

    This should work for you:

    https://yourdomain.com/?feed=job_feed&job_types=desired-type

    Let us know when you need us!

    Hi Jenn, Thanks. I see that this works if I want to view the RSS feed, but I’d prefer (if possible) to display the specific job type on the better formatted job listing page. Is that possible?

    Hey @benchwarmer,

    Apologies for the delayed reply!

    You should be able to list a particular job type on a page with the following shortcode:

    [jobs job_type="thetype"]

    That doesn’t seem to work in my case.

    Hey @benchwarmer,

    If that isn’t working, could you temporarily switch to one of the default WordPress themes — preferably Twenty Seventeen, and see if it works then? You can do this by installing a plugin that only switches the theme for the current user, linked below:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/theme-switcha/

    Or, if you’d rather not use a plugin, you could temporarily set your active theme to Twenty Seventeen. The Twenty Seventeen theme comes preinstalled with your WordPress, and you can find it under Appearance > Themes.

    If the shortcode works properly with the default theme, its likely that the theme you’re using is conflicting with WP Job Manager.

    Let us know what you find.

    Doesn’t work in any theme. Instead of getting just the specific type as I’d expect, I get all the types.

    Hi!

    In my testing, it didn’t work if I had the Ziprecruiter premium add-on activated, but it worked as soon as I turned it off. Do you have any of our add-ons running (or an add-on from someone else)?
