Support » Themes and Templates » Altering search Criteria

  • I’m using the Jobify theme, w/ WP job manager plugin. I’m attempting to modify / add search criteria to the job search widget. I was able to add a drop down, that passes in correct information and outputs the correct queried arguments but its not actually doing any filtering. I could be misinterpreting the example provided by WP Job Manager, and hooking it in incorrectly. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!
