How do I add Extra Social Media Profiles?

Listable, through the WP Job Man­ag­er plu­g­in, comes by default with sup­port for only one Social Net­work (eg. Twit­ter). To add extra Social Pro­files or even for oth­er kinds of fields, we’re rec­om­mend­ing the Field Edi­tor plu­g­in, that will allow you to com­plete­ly cre­ate and cus­tomize all form fields.

To add new fields to your list­ings you need the WP Job Man­ag­er — Field Edi­tor plu­g­in (sold sep­a­rate­ly). Even if you can man­u­al­ly man­age those fields, we rec­om­mend this plu­g­in due to its intu­itive User Inter­face.

We’ve added the nec­es­sary CSS styling so you only need to add the new fields and out­put their val­ues to the right loca­tion.

Step 1  Install the Field Editor Plugin

You must first pur­chase, install and acti­vate the WP Job Man­ag­er – Field Edi­tor plu­g­in.

Step 2  Add a New Field

Nav­i­gate to List­ings — Com­pa­ny Fields in your site’s dash­board and from the top, click Add Com­pa­ny Field but­ton.

Let’s make the con­fig­u­ra­tion for a Face­book pro­file field. Fill up the con­fig­u­ra­tion as illus­trat­ed below:

  • Meta Key: company_facebook
  • Type: Text Box
  • Label: Face­book

Step 3 Configure the Output Location & Details

Now, as we have a field that col­lects data for list­ings, we should out­put its val­ue near the oth­er social media pro­files. Let’s move to the Out­put tab from the left side­bar and fill up the details as shown below:

  • Out­put: After Social Icons
  • Out­put As: Link
  • Cap­tion: Face­book
  • Class­es: list­ing-con­tact listing–facebook(dou­ble dash (-) between list­ing and face­book)


That’s it! The new­ly cre­at­ed field should be dis­played on the list­ings page, after the already used Twit­ter field.


*Note that you can add as many fields as you want, only that you need to change the CSS class to “listing–socialnetwork”:

This article applies to Listable, as they share the same underlying structure.
