Support » Plugin: WP Job Manager » Invalid links appearing in job listing fields

  • Resolved WorkinWP



    I just noticed that in the job listing fields such as website, videos, tagline, twitter are all wrong and possibly auto-populating. I looked back at an old job listing from May 31 and nothing was in those fields. Not sure if it has something to do with this thread:

    I never put any code in to hide things. I’ve also fixed it by removing or correcting the fields that we use (website/FB) so the errors don’t show.

    The company tagline was just duplicating the company name. The link for the website & video had http://Jryan+Contracting+Ltd instead of an actual link. We don’t even set a company video, so nothing should have been in there.

    Can you let me know if this is happening in your test environment as well?

    Thank you!

  • Could it be your browser’s autofill populating those fields incorrectly? If it might be, try testing it by turning of autofill in your browser, and seeing if the issue still occurs.

    Hello @iguanamom,

    I tried to replicate your problem on my test site but with no success. Can you tell me if this happens on the job listing’s front-end, or also when you edit/use the job listing editor in the backend?

    Also, if you can share your site URL publicly, that’d be great as I can test it directly.

    @hastibe’s suggestion is a good one: can you look for possible autofill settings in your browser and try to turn them off?

    To stay on the safe side, you may also want to exclude any plugin conflicts: try to temporarily deactivate all your plugins apart from WP Job Manager and check if the problem gets fixed that way. If it works, then reactivate each plugin one by one to find out which one is causing problems.

    Let me know what you find out!

    @erania-pinnera @hastibe good call on the autofill. I’m not onsite at the client’s location and the guy is out of town. Seems odd that it would autofill what it did as that’s not a typical way of formatting anything, but I guess it’s not out of the realm of possibility.

    I updated the staging site and created a job there and it didn’t happen, so will close for now and examine further upon his return. Thanks to you both!
