A common problem I hear people having with Job Manager is that they don’t know how to customize how the Job List looks. In this post, I’ll try to break down how to write your own Job List templates, so you can get it looking pretty.
First of all, open your wp-admin, and go to Job Manger->Settings->Display Settings. Scr0ll down to the box called Job Templates. Like many other plugins allow in Posts and Pages, Job Manager templates use shortcodes. All of the shortcodes are described in this text box, but I’ll only be using a handful of them here to demonstrate.
The default template shows an expanded view of each job, but many sites only want a summary table, so people can click through to the job. Here’s an example of that:
To start with, decide which fields you want to show in the table. From the default fields, you might decide to use the Job Title, the Location, and the Start Date. On a default installation of Job Manager, these have the shortcodes [job_title], [job_field4] and [job_field2], respectively.
Now we can start writing our template. Start with the table header:
Naturally, you might choose to include extra things in your template, this is a very cut-down example. But hopefully it should give you some ideas for you how can expand the templating system to create wonderful new layouts!
