Support » Plugin: WP Job Manager » last update broke list view (with WPML)

  • Resolved agepcom


    we had a problem as WP job manager was installed in french in a multilingual website.
    Job post types appeared as “poste” (=job in french) and french appeared as the default language in WPML configuration of post type slugs. So for the english version we had to translate the post type to “job”.

    see screenshot :
    we could set default to english but custom post type stays “Poste”, so things weren’t changed and we used it as well.

    Until we updated to Version 1.30.2 today. Then all jobs disappeared from [jobs] shortcode list in both version. They still exist with their permalinks but are not listed in the shortcode.

    – can you investigate if this is a bug from the update 1.30.2
    – is there a way to either,
    change or force the base language to english for wp job manager
    or reinstall wp job manager with english as default in wordpress (including sql tables) ?

    Hi! Our developers took a look at this, and they don’t see anything in the 1.30.2 update that could have caused this, but they aren’t necessarily 100% familiar with how WPML interacts with WPJM. Here’s a suggestion, then. Try setting up a staging version of your site; if your host doesn’t have a way for you to do so, then you can try with this plugin:

    Then, on the staging site, try to revert to WP Job Manager 1.30.1 by deleting the current folder via FTP and installing the older version, which you can get from here:

    And see if things work again. I also suggest you contact WPML support, as they might have ideas too. Let me now what they say!

    yep; reverting to last version did the job.
    I was also about to contact WPML support but I did not find how to have a good reason for that, as it is the wp jobmanager plugin’s update that broke the compatibility, not them 🙂

    have you a suggestion for the problem of the automatic translation of “job” post type slug that can’t be reversed ? I don’t think it is a (technical) good idea to have a volatile default slug event from my (non-english) language when installing, even if it is a generous idea. Customizing slugs in wordpress admin is there for that.
