Latest WP update broke plugin slightly
While creating job posts it seems random that the block to load the company logo appears. It also randomly does not load Job Categories or Job Types blocks on the right to edit them either.

Thanks for reaching out. The Job Manager plugin is designed to facilitate posting jobs using the frontend Post a Job form and not from the WordPress Admin area.
I checked the Job Posting form on your site’s
/post-a-job/page, and it seems to be working properly now. Were you able to fix the issue?
If not, please give us some more details/steps to see the issue in action. Once I have this information, I’ll be happy to guide you further.Thread Starter ashcloudmac
I am talking about when you edit a job post. The bar on the right of the screen. Some load and some don’t and it seems random. This did not happen before the latest update.

I recommend editing a job post on the frontend. Please visit your Job Dashboard and click Edit as shown in this screenshot: https://d.pr/draw/5WgFMs/
You should be directed to the frontend of the job description. In there, you should be able to add more job tags and categories.
If not, could you please send us another screenshot of what you see on your end?

Ok, I understand what you are saying however the dashboard page is too limited to edit posts and has too few options – for example it does not have a logo option to use a url which means I have to upload a logo every time. It is too time consuming when loading 30 to 50 job posts per day. So I edit the posts from within the plugin – Job Listings – All Jobs. Now that used to work great before the last WP update, all the side bars loaded with the job categories, types, url slug, Logo. Those sidebars now randomly load some of the features some of the time. Do you understand what I am reffering too?Plugin Support Gaurav (a11n)
Thanks for sharing the details on your workflow and your issues. I assume that the sidebar issues are happening with WordPress v5.9 and WP Job Manager v1.35.2. Is this correct?
Does the sidebar issue happen when you have only WP Job Manager plugin active on the site (i.e. all other plugins are deactivated) and the site is using WordPress default Twenty Twenty One theme?
Also, a better workflow for adding or importing multiple Jobs on your site is to use the [WP All Import](https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-job-manager-xml-csv-listings-import/) plugin. The plugin allows you to import data (Job Listings) onto the site using a CSV file. You can first edit the CSV file in Excel or Google Sheets, add all the information about the jobs (including a URL to the company logo) and then import it directly onto the website in one go.

That seems to defy the whole point of the job board. I have multiple people adding posts at different times of the day that I have to then go and edit and approve. The fact remains that before the last wordpress update it worked perfectly and after the update it didn’t.Thread Starter ashcloudmac
Is there anyone out there that is experiencing the same problem as I have described? Surely this can’t just be happening to me?Plugin Support Gaurav (a11n)
Thanks for getting back to us and sharing the details of your workflow.
We have not received any other reports about an incident with the job post editor in WordPress admin similar to yours.
I can help by testing and then reporting this issue to our developers if you like.
Before I do that, let us make sure that there are no other plugins or themes installed on your site which may be causing the issue.
Try disabling all of your plugins except WP Job Manager (and add-ons). Then try testing again to see if the issue persists. If that resolves your issue, you can find what was causing it by enabling each plugin one by one while continuing to test.
If that doesn’t help, you can also try switching to the Twenty Twenty theme via Appearance > Themes, and test again. If the issue is resolved then you know it’s a problem with the theme, and you’ll need to contact the theme author for further assistance.
Let us know how it goes.Plugin Support Jay (a11n)
