    is there a shortcode?

    These docs are almost 4 years old – are they still valid?

    • Greg

      Yes the document is still valid for the most part, it was created 4 years ago but last updated just few months ago if i remember correctly.

  4. Do you have any video of that? I’d care to find out more details.

    • Greg

      I am afraid we do not have video tutorials right now, what are you having problems with?

  5. Silvio

    If I use my WordPress theme, then wpjobboard use the content-single.php from my WordPress theme. I’ve copied the content-single.php to content-job.php because I want to make some changes there.

    How can I explain WordPress to use content-job.php instead of content-single.php if it is showing a job item.

    Maybe do you have an hint for me?

    • Greg

      As far as i am concerned you should first create file single-job.php and the single-job.php would load content-job.php.

      • Silvio

        Your hint was useful, everything works fine now. Thank you.
