Resume Manager: Editing submission fields

Editing resume fields works in a similar manner to editing job submission fields – you can use filters and custom functions. Any custom code can go in your theme functions.php file.

↑ Back to Top Editing fields on the frontend

Editing resume submission fields is possible via the submit_resume_form_fields filter. Adding some code will allow you to edit various fields, or add new ones.

See the below example which demonstrates how to change a field’s label:

Removing a field

If you’d like to remove a field from the form, you’d simply unset it using the same filter.

See the below example where the Candidate Title is being removed:

View the plugin’s source code for a full list of fields and values.

Adding a field

Similarly, you can add a field just as easily. Here’s an example showing how to add a new text input to the form:

Note: You can change the ‘priority’ of the field to position it where you want it. The higher the number, the lower down the form it will appear.

You could use a different field type like select or checkbox, just make sure to follow the same method to add those field types that WP Job Manager uses.

Note: To add it to the preview field you’d want to look at adding it to the template files, like content-single-resume.php, with some code like:

↑ Back to Top Editing fields in admin

Fields in admin are of similar structure and can be edited using the ‘resume_manager_resume_fields’ filter. Each field takes a label, placeholder, type and description arguments.

See the below example which demonstrates how to change a field’s placeholder:

↑ Back to Top Making the 'Resume File' field required

A common request is to require a resume file to be added. Simply use the following code to make it so:

↑ Back to Top Adding a field to a repeated section

To add a field to one of the resume’s repeated sections (Education, Experience), the process is almost the same as adding a single field. Here’s an example of adding a “Favorite Teacher” field to each Education section.

Adding the field to admin

Note that we use the 'resume_manager_resume_education_fields' filter instead of 'resume_manager_resume_fields'.

It’s also important to include a 'name' entry as shown:

// Add field to admin
add_filter( 'resume_manager_resume_education_fields', 'wpjms_admin_resume_form_fields' );
function wpjms_admin_resume_form_fields( $fields ) {
	$fields['favorite_teacher'] = array(
	    'label' 		=> __( 'Favourite Teacher', 'job_manager' ),
	    'name'        => 'resume_education_teacher[]',
	    'type' 			=> 'text',
	    'placeholder' 	=> '',
	    'description'	=> '',
	    'priority' => 1

	return $fields;

Adding the field to the frontend form

This code is almost the same as adding a single field to the form, you just need to include ['candidate_education']['fields'] to specify where this field should go.

// Add field to frontend
add_filter( 'submit_resume_form_fields', 'wpjms_frontend_resume_form_fields' );
function wpjms_frontend_resume_form_fields( $fields ) {
	$fields['resume_fields']['candidate_education']['fields']['favorite_teacher'] = array(
	    'label' => __( 'Favourite Teacher', 'job_manager' ),
	    'type' => 'text',
	    'required' => true,
	    'placeholder' => '',
	    'priority' => 1

	return $fields;
