Support » Fixing WordPress » php form link in jobpress?

  • Dear WordPress users,
    I do have experience with Joomla, but WordPress is kind of new to me. Just set up my first (local) site and I don’t know how to continue.

    I’ve set up a jobboard system with the ‘Jobpress theme’.
    But, when someone applies for a job, people get to send an empty email.
    With other words, the ‘Apply’ button is a php mailto link.
    I want to change this, but don’t know to what and how exactly. I want to offer visitors some sort of basic ‘structure’, some basic information they have to provide like name, telephone number and CV (as an attachment or upload).

    I’ve considered two options:
    > Somehow putting more information in this ‘mailto link’, some body text. But I haven’t been able to find much except how to add a subject which is already there. Besides, I’m a leek when it comes to writing php.
    > Making the Apply-button link towards a form. However, the Apply-button is an ‘universal link’, no matter the vacancy. So I can make all the vacancies forward towards one universal form, but when the forms will be send as an email the subject will be all the same, making it unneeded difficult for the recruitment department.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Nobody? I almost wanted to open a new topic since I wasn’t sure I had made one, I already wrote the text. Maybe that illustrates my point somewhat better.

    Beste WordPress-gebruikers.
    Ik wil een vacaturebord plaatsen op een site en, na een opzet te hebben gemaakt van de Jobpress theme en Jobberbase heb ik besloten voor de eerste te gaan. Ik ben alleen niet tevreden over de manier van reageren op vacatures.
    Wanneer je op een vacature klikt staat er onderaan de pagina een knop met ‘reageren’. Dit is eigenlijk gewoon een ‘:mailto’ link. De bezoeker krijgt dan een ‘blanke mail’ die hij/zij zelf dient in te vullen. Ik wil echter een aantal standaard tekstvelden bieden, zoals naam, telefoonnummer, upload CV. Hoe kan ik dit het beste doen? Heb zeer weinig ervaring met php code. Ik kan ook al tekstvelden plaatsen in de vacature zelf. Echter, bij opsturen is het onduidelijk bij welke vacature de informatie hoort, dit is dus alleen een mogelijkheid wanneer er één vacature online zou staan.
    Super bedankt! Alle ideeën zijn welkom!

    Dear WordPress-users,
    I want to have a jobboard placed on a site, and after trying out the Jobpress theme and Jobberbase I’ve decided to continue with the first. However, I’m not happy with the manner in which you apply for a vacancy/job.
    When you apply for a job a new window will be opened, a blank e-mail. So in fact you’re pressing a ‘:mailto’ link. I want to offer several default textfield which have to be filled, like name, phone number, upload CV. What’s the best way to do this? I’ve very little experience with php coding. It’s also possible to place the text fields in the vacancy/job description. But, when sent it’s unclear to which job the information belongs, so this would only be a solution when there would be just one vacancy.
    Thanks a lot, all ideas are welcome!

    Maybe try a form builder-sort-of plugin
