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”:
