Meta Description and Keywords

Important Note: Since WPJB version 4.3.0, you can enter keyword, description and any other meta data like for any other WordPress Post. In order to access this options go to wp-admin / Job Board / Jobs panel, edit any of your jobs. In right sidebar you will see “Advanced Options” button, click it, it will take you to a panel where you will be able to enter SEO data.

For version 4.2.1 and older

Installing this addon will add “Meta Title”, “Meta Description” and “Meta Keywords” fields to Job, Company and Resume forms. In order to use this addon you will need to have both WPJobBoard and Yoast SEO plugin installed.


Note that the meta fields will be editable from wp-admin panel only, if you would like to make the editable in the frontend you will need to uncomment three lines in the addon source code (the lines which need to be uncommented are marked, so you should not have problem finding them if you know PHP basics).

    If you use a StudioPress Genesis Child Theme just paste this snippet to your functions.php to get Genesis SEO Options:
    // Add SEO Options to Post Type Job
    add_post_type_support( ‘job’, array( ‘genesis-seo’, ‘genesis-scripts’, ‘genesis-layouts’, ‘genesis-rel-author’ ) );
