Support » Plugin: WP Job Manager » Tried to change settings, link has expired

  • Resolved dennizeliasson40


    Thank you for such a great plugin in WP Job Manager. I love how lightweight and user-friendly it is.

    Anyway, I’ve been trying to change some job listings settings, but when I clicked “Save Changes,” I got the message “The link you followed has expired. Please try again,” and my settings remained unchanged.

    To troubleshoot this, I tried clearing my website cache, and deleting my browser cache and cookies. I also changed my theme to Twenty Twenty. I also made sure that the WordPress core, the Twenty Twenty theme, and WP Job Manager were all up to date. Unfortunately, trying to change the plugin settings after this still resulted in the same error message.

    Is there anything else I can do to fix this? Thank you so much in advance.

    Hi @dennizeliasson40 ,

    Your theme probably overrides job-preview.php. This means you’ll need to add the following snippet of code right after the <form ...> tag in job-preview.php:

    <form method="post" id="job_preview" action="<?php echo esc_url( $form->get_action() ); ?>">
     * Fires at the top of the preview job form.
     * @since 1.32.2
    do_action( 'preview_job_form_start' );


    Thank you for the quick reply.

    I went into the plugin editor and navigated to the job-preview.php file in the plugin’s directory. Oddly enough, that exact snippet is still present in the file.

    I went into the WP Job Manager settings again to see if anything had changed. Unfortunately, I got the same error message when I tried to change any of several settings.

    Is there anything else I can try? Maybe something in the theme settings? Thanks again for the help.

    I just realized that I forgot to try deactivating my other plugins to see if that resolves the issue. I will try that and get back to you. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks again for being so helpful.

    I deactivated all the other plugins (besides WP Job Manager) and I was able to successfully change the settings without the error message. I found out that the culprit plugins were the “Total Upkeep” and “Post and Page Builder” plugins from Boldgrid.

    Thank you so much! I highly appreciate all the help.
