Support » Plugin: Job Manager » Way to search Job Manager post title / description content

  • I know it’s not built in yet, but has anyone found a way to include the Job Manager job postings in a normal WP search return, or with a 3rd party plugin?

    If so, care to share?

    I discussed this over email, but for anyone playing along at home:

    Job Manager stores all of its data as Post metadata in the wp_postmeta table. Because it also has the customisable fields, the meta_key names aren’t based on what the data being stored is.

    The long and short of it is, I’m not aware of any search plugins that would play nicely with this format. It’s possible to do a bit of a hack job that just works with your particular job fields, but having a search that works with any format will take some more effort.

    Any updates on the search function?

    Would love to hear an update for this as well. I understand that this is planned for a v0.9 but don’t seem to see any progress being made on the roadmap. I’m very impressed with this plugin and its potential, but the search function is going to be key for my client.

    FWIW, Gary, you’ve done a great job and I certainly hope to see this project continue to evolve!
