Support » Plugin: WP Job Manager » WP Job Manager search not working properly

  • Resolved mattapex


    I am also having this issue, on numerous sites and logged an issue on Github: – with screenshots explaining the sort of behaviour I’m experiencing.

    I’ve tried all sorts of things, including going back to the default TwentySeventeen theme, removing all plugins bar WP Job Manager, re-installing WordPress.

    The only thing that’s had a partial effect, was weirdly deactivating and then re-activating Job Types within Job Manager.

    My search queries are just hit and miss as to whether they return any results. Some searches appear to be case sensitive, while others aren’t. Some searches return blog results. Some return zero results.

    I’ve also gone into phpmyadmin and checked/repaired table… no errors were found.

    I also thought the case sensitivity was a collation issue, so made sure the posts table was set to utf8_general_ci

    None of this has worked reliably all the time for any of the sites we’re using WP Job Manager on.

    One of the suggestions mentioned above about trying with a brand new job… I’m yet to try (and will do now) but that’s going to be no help for some of our sites with hundreds or thousands of jobs on them.

    Any help would be appreciated please!

  • Panic over! I’ve identified that we had some custom script in our child theme’s functions.php aimed at narrowing search to posts only (ie excluding pages). This used to work, but I guess a recent update has now led to it conflicting. Removing the code instantly fixes the issue.

    This is happening on several sites? Are they individual installations of WordPress, or are they part of a multisite? Are they all on the same server? What PHP version is running the sites? What is the common element between these sites?

    I’m not sure what would be causing this, but if you could provide those details, I’ll ask the developers for their input. Lastly, can you provide me with a few more URLs? Thanks!
