Managing the “Add a Listing” Page

The Add a Listing page is used by your visitors for front end listings submission. As an Administrator, you can Add Jobs via Admin by following this tutorial.

After you’ve followed the Installing the Theme guide, at Step 2 you were advised to automatically create an  Add a Listing page. This is just a regular page with a simple shortcode that renders the listings:


This shortcode outputs the frontend submit job form. You can read more about the job submission form here.

Editing Listing Submission Fields

You can edit the listing fields manually by tackling the PHP code or you can use a 3rd party plugin.

There are three main ways to customize the fields in WP Job Manager:

  1. For simple text changes, using a localization file or a plugin such as the Say What Plugin. See Translating WP Job Manager for more information.
  2. Use a 3rd party plugin such as WP Job Manager Field Editor which has an UI for field editing.
  3. Use the WordPress hooks (filters) which are explained here. *Note that a similar function is already applied on theme folder/inc/extras.php using custom_submit_job_form_fields() function. Here you can find out how to change other details like fields placeholders or descriptions tooltips.

Above is an excerpt from the WP Job Manager — Editing Job Submission Fields official documentation article.
