Shortcode Reference

WP Job Manager adds several shortcodes which you can use to display jobs and forms. These are listed below.

An important note for all shortcodes: Ensure they are not wrapped with any tags when adding them to your posts/pages. To check this, view the page content in ‘html’ mode and remove any formatting surrounding the shortcodes. This will prevent styling issues.

↑ Back to Top jobs

The [jobs] shortcode outputs a list of your jobs as well as filters for searching.

An example of the jobs shortcode

This shortcode takes the following arguments:

If the URL of the page contains a query string and location or keywords is set, the values in the query string will populate the location and keywords fields instead of the above options.


Show 12 of the most recent jobs without filters and pagination:

[jobs per_page="12" show_filters="false"]

Show 20 jobs at a time, ordered by title, with categories disabled:

[jobs per_page="20" orderby="title" show_categories=false]

↑ Back to Top job

Outputs a single job by ID. You can find the id by viewing the list of jobs in admin. Example:

[job id="10"]

The listing will be output like a single job listing.

↑ Back to Top job_summary

Outputs a single job’s summary by ID.


You can find the id by viewing the list of jobs in admin. Example:

[job_summary id="10"]

↑ Back to Top post_status

Show only expired jobs: [jobs post_status="expired"]
Show only active jobs: [jobs post_status="publish"]

↑ Back to Top submit_job_form

This shortcode outputs the frontend submit job form. There are no other arguments needed for this shortcode – just add it to a page.

↑ Back to Top job_dashboard

This shortcode outputs the job dashboard used by logged in users.


You can also change the number of listings shown per page in the dashboard by using the posts_per_page parameter, like so:

[job_dashboard posts_per_page="10"]

The default is 25 jobs; it won’t show pagination unless there are multiple pages.
