    I’ll post my finding for everyone to see, with the help of kandrews and a bit of google-fu I figured this out. You need to put a function into your functions.php file.

    function my_query_post_type($query) {
        if ( is_category() && false == $query->query_vars['suppress_filters'] )
            $query->set( 'post_type', array( 'post', 'video', 'attachment', 'rsjp_job_postings' ) );
        return $query;
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'my_query_post_type');

    WordPress doesn’t allow custom post types by default in its posts query. Where you see array( 'post', 'video', 'attachment', 'rsjp_job_postings' ) ); you can add or remove any custom post types that you don’t want to show.

    I only wanted mine to show up underneath the categories listing so I could have a different page for each category of jobs. So I have this line: if ( is_category() you might need to change that a little to get what you want.

    I can now use

    will only show jobs that are marked underneath the category “catname”.

    Going a step further, add this to your display-jobs.php file where you want the category name to display, and you have an easy to filter list of jobs on the display jobs page. I added it on line 31 just after the_date.

    <div class="category">Category: <?php
    $category = get_the_category();
    echo '<a href="'.get_category_link($category[0]->term_id ).'">'.$category[0]->cat_name.'</a>';

    Nice! Thanks for posting all that.


    First of all, thanks for the update! It is great! Second, thanks for this thinking, TKlein.

    I had the same idea. But for me, it’s important to show the job postings of the different categories on the same website. Can’t we use [jobPostings] and add category attribute to it? Like cat=”9″ for example?

    At this time, no, I do not have that ability in place for the shortcode.
    I think I will probably add this to the next update though.
