Getting started guide

Carerix WordPress plugin

  1. Upload & Install the plugin via the WordPress installer

  2. Activate the plugin

  3. Ask the Carerix administrator for the Application Name and Token (or follow the steps in

  1. )

  2. Once you click 'Save', the publications etc are retrieved / synchronized every 10 min from Carerix.

Application Token

To implement the WordPress plugin, you as WordPress Administrator will be asked for the Application Token to authorize the Carerix plugin with your Carerix Application (

To get the token you'll need to contact our support desk. We will generate a token and send it to you. WordPress plugin - Activate API

NB. The Jobs default page is created for reference purposes only. You should not use it otherwise. Instead use WordPress posts and blog listing (i.e.

Email templates

Make sure that this e-mail templates are installed in the library of the Carerix application:

  • CxpeForgotPwd - e-mail sent to the candidate to resend the login details

  • CxpResetPwd - email used to reset the password for a candidate That can no longer access the original email account

  • JobAlert - Mandatory for sending job alert subscription emails.

Jobs summary

We recommend to use the blog list, eg. So do not automatically generated jobs-default page, that page is purely for reference.

Other possibilities for job listings are on (submenus under jobs) and using plugins is more possible, for example, hang a blog list on a page, so you can create

Several job listings (using Carerix media)

Medium 'web' is default, but you can show a different 'job flow' on the website. For example, a list of ZZP projects or jobs per establishment, all published to medium 'web2'.

You can do this by publishing to a different medium. You use this medium as follows:

  1. In the Carerix application: Create a new medium, for example web2 (only admins can create a medium)

  2. Publish least one job created for this additional medium

  3. In WordPress, go to the Carerix WordPress plugin settings

  4. Create a new job flow to (a new ‘Source‘)

  5. Fill the medium behind as follows: medium=web2 and save

  6. During synchronization, created an additional WordPress main category, it is given the name of this additional media.

  7. You can show you the various job listings through blog lists or list of tags.

  8. If you want to separate job each location you hang under the relevant plant in Carerix jobs. Then publish to the appropriate medium, such as the standard medium 'web' for Establishment and A? 'web2' for Company B.

NB: In Carerix publish your default to the medium 'web'. You do this in the settings of the Carerix WordPress plugin to fill out and you therefore blank.

Settings Job candidates (source feeds)

  1. During installation By default, a job source feed created. That is the feed which determines how the associated jobs look like. This source is called Jobs default page. The corresponding medium is standard 'web'.

  2. You can create several job feeds. Determine for each job source feed you which elements you do / do not want to show

    1. Which form is linked to each of these jobs.

    2. Introtekst per vacancy

    3. RSS link

    4. Tell-a-friend

    5. Job subscription

    6. Print

  3. Any job source feed creates each vacancy published a posts in the right category (function), with the right taxonomy (Country & Region, experience, etc) (In addition, each job creates source feed a jobs page This page is named.. you specify (default Jobs default page). This is purely for reference)

  4. You can combine several options to display a job list:

    1. Default WordPress Blog List

    2. Blog List combination with 3rd party plugin (see Recommended Plugins & Widgets)

    3. Using the default page Jobs not recommended. (Installation will be created this page)


The plugin will synchronize Jobs, Candidates etc every 10 minutes. You cannot change this interval.

To check quickly the result of your edits, you can synchronize Jobs, Candidates from Carerix manually:

  • Log into the WordPress backend

  • Go to the general Carerix settings

  • Click 'Synchronize new items from Carerix.

All job posts and job source page (with list of jobs) will be updated.

Make a (specific) form

By default is Form 1 installed. You can create a new (specific) form with the fields you want to show. Don't forget to connect this to the appropriate 'Source':

  1. Log in WordPress

  2. Go to (form) settings of the plugin Carerix

  3. Create a new form

  4. Select the fields to be shown

  5. Save

  6. Then go to Sources, scroll down and select the newly created form

  7. Click save. All vacancies are synchronized and receive the new form

  8. To use the Open Application: You should use the generated shortcode shown at the top of the form in the red bar

You can create a new form and link it to the desired Job feed source. For each form you can synchronize the fields Carerix. Note that you must first save the title of the form before you can synchronize. You can compose each form yourself by or (un)checking the appropriate (and/or required) fields.

Open Application

Required skill: Carerix administrator + Wordpress theme/frontend designer

Prerequisites: make sure in Carerix there is at least one job order tagged as an 'Open vacancy' and has an active publication generated from it. See also: How to make sure candidates can do an open application?

In Wordpress you can put the following shortcode in the contents of a page:


If you want to use a specific application form, use the following format:

[cx_open_application openFormID="XX"]

Replace 'XX' by the application form ID. You can find the ID in the application forms list (Wordpress→Dashboard→Carerix→Application Forms) If you have multiple open vacancies in your Carerix system, you can add the Carerix publication-ID of the specific open vacancy as a parameter:

[cx_open_application openpubid="XX"]

Replace 'XX' by the ID of the publication of the open vacancy job order

Lastly you can combine the two like this:

[cx_open_application openFormID="3" openpubid="312"]

Multilingual Websites

The Carerix WordPress plugin supports multilingualism. To do this, you use a multilingual plugin. Carerix supports Multilingual Plugin WPML, the most popular plugin on multilingualism. We assume that you all vacancies in both Dutch as a 2nd language publishing (English in this example). Proceed as follows

  1. Make Carerix in another medium (in tables). You've already medium 'web', add a new medium to eg code web-en 'for English.

  2. Create an additional publications of a job

  3. One publication (1st language) already has the medium 'web'. Make an extra publication of the same job 'and web (2nd language) with it. Please note that this publication contains the texts in the 2nd language.

  4. Go to the WordPress Website

  5. Install WPML and adjust it as desired

  6. Go to the Carerix settings and synchronize all items Carerix

  7. In the list of all messages (posts) you can see which posts have been published in any language

NB: Please note that the 'Translation Options' of WPML are good.

  1. WPML → Translate Options

  2. Optionally sync again

Without multilingual plugin

IMPORTANT! You can do steps below only in case when WPML plugin is NOT installed. If you have WPML plugin please skip this section!

You can also show jobs from different languages ​​(different mediums) without multilingual plugin:

  1. Create a medium (per language) a separate job to feed source,

  2. On Set Feed Source Parameters Add 'medium=web' and as parameter behind /cxtools/wp_feed.php?

  3. You now have several job feeds, jobs are created as separate jobs in the'd really rather know categories. The page is created only displays the jobs with the medium 'and web.

Job boards

How can I make candidates through job boards are sent to the correct page on my website to apply

  • If desired, change the text of the web template confirm. Beware of <brackets> and anyway make a backup of the code (copy paste in text file) and a screen shot of the settings.

  • Determine the settings of the WordPress plugin which form you want to show to candidates via a job board. Through Carerix settings → Forms Settings → Select the form 'Form to be used on apply from job board.

  • Change in the Carerix Apply_url. So that candidates from a job board will visit the website to the relevant job where they want to apply for. Use the following code for the apply_url (Settings → Attributes and Fields → Apply_url)<cx:write value="$publication.publicationID"/>

this results i.e. in en shows the specific publication to the visitor

Regarding InGoedeBanen: By default there a candidate cannot be traced if he comes via a job board. This is because an IGB single vacancy publication is given to x number of job boards.

Newsletter subscription

Candidates can register for the newsletter.

Enable the checkbox 'Newsletter subscription' in the desired application form (Wordpress→Dashboard→Carerix→Application Forms). Note that newsletter subscriptions are always part of the application form and not available as “stand-alone” signup widget.

Job alerts

In WordPress you can use this shortcode to show a form for job alerts (vacancy subscription). When candidates signup they will receive emails in the future containing vacancies that fit their selected criteria, on a daily basis.

See the example in

The following fields will be displayed in the form:

  • Email address

  • First name

  • Last name (and prefix)

  • Gender

  • Country selection preference (only if multiple countries are published in Carerix)

  • Three “sub region” selector preferences like provinces, counties and departments (only if these are published in Carerix)

  • Two function group preferences with an optional parent business-line selector (the business-line selector will only appear if multiple business-lines are published in Carerix)

  • Agreement to terms checkbox (also enforces the storage term of the personal information to comply to GDPR)

  • Anti bot abuse system (by captcha)

The process for the candidate is as follows:

  1. Candidate selects the criteria to receive job opportunities for and submits the form

  2. Candidate receives an opt-in activation mail and clicks on the activation link

  3. Candidate starts receiving mail with (new) vacancies on a daily basis that match the selected criteria

  4. To cancel, the candidate can use the unsubscribe link in the job alert mails

Step 1: Preparation in Carerix

Follow the steps in the following help article:

  1. Follow the steps in the following help article:

  2. Make sure the email template called “Vacature abonnement bevestiging” (Vacancy subscription confirmation) is also installed. It has the

    code web-subscribe and it's not described in the help article.


Step 2: Preparation in Wordpress

Create a general page and paste the following shortcode in the content:


Optional attributes are can be added to control the confirmation message.

Set a custom confirmation message:

[cx_job_alert_subscription confirmation_message="Thank you for subscribing. Shortly you will receive an email with an activation link. After activation you will start receiving new job opportunities in your mailbox on a daily basis!"]

Set a custom page/url for the confirmation message:

[cx_job_alert_subscription confirmation_url="/jobalert_thank_you/"]

Step 3: Fine-tuning in Carerix

In Carerix, you can fine-tune the following candidate criteria for the job alert form:

  • Country selection

  • Business-line selection

  • Function group selection

For the following instructions you need to be familiar with Carerix Tables editing. The principles explained in Table management are used to edit the tables.

The following table items are used:

  • For countries the table 'Land' (country)

  • For business-lines the table 'Vakgebied' (business-line)

  • For function groups the table 'functie0'

Shorten the country selection

If your working area is a single country (or a few) you can shorten the dropdown box of countries.

For each country you want to disable in the job alert form, edit the item, and uncheck the box “not for web”.
Note: if you only enable one country, the country selection is disabled on the job alert form.

Shorten the business-line selection

In Carerix every function group can be connected to a business-line. If one or more function groups are connected to a business-line the business-line dropdown box on the jobalert form will appear. So if you don't work with multiple business-lines, you need to configure the business-lines as follows:

  1. Edit each business-line item in the table “vakgebied” (business-line) and enable the checkbox “not for web”

  2. Locate the business-line “Standaard” (default) and disable the checkbox “not for web”. This leaves you with one mandatory business-line which will NOT appear for candidates on the job alert form

  3. Finally, in Wordpress, go to Dashboard→Carerix→Application Forms→Tab: Settings, and click on “Clear DataNodes cache”

Configure/shorten function group selection

  1. Edit each function group item (table: functie0) you want to include in the group selection for the candidates. Disable 'not for web' and enable each desired business-line you want to connect the function group to. You need at least connect it to one business-line

  2. Finally, in Wordpress, go to Dashboard→Carerix→Application Forms→Tab: Settings, and click on “Clear DataNodes cache”

Settings Carerix

Change ApplyURL

Change ApplyURL so links in email templates refer correctly to the website. Change the link for the apply_url (Settings → Attributes and Fields → Apply_url)<cx:write value="$publication.publicationID"/>

This provides e.g.

. The plugin will redirect to the appropriate job

Modified URLs

How do I create links to jobs in my emails, alerts and newsletters?

  • Add to the link in your template: pub_id = xxx, where xxx is the Publication ID \\.

  • For example

Applicant Source Tracking

The apply page supports 2 new GET parameters cx_applysource and cx_applytags as of version 2.14.36

Usage example,paid,regionA

NOTE: The apply parameters are being stored in a cookie for 30 days. If the same candidate applies for another vacancy through another URL e.g. When a candidate submits the apply form the tracking values will be automatically saved in Match details and become visible in Carerix application as Apply Source and Apply Tags fields in Matches details.

If yours wordpress configured differently and you are not using default urls, be sure that redirect from job board will land on apply page. Usually it is enough to provide apply=true parameter in the url

The resulting match will be created with previous tracking values.


The Carerix WordPress plugin is the connection between the Carerix application and the WordPress website. Therefor there are certain roles/rights for different tasks:

  • Carerix administrator: Has the administrator user role and is able to manage the Carerix data-tables (e.g. Country table), mediums and email templates.

  • Wordpress administrator: Webbuilder with rights to manage the settings of Wordpress, can install/configure plugins and knows how to create/edit pages (with sidebars). HTML skills are usefull

How do I get the Application Name and Token?

  • Application name is:

  • For the Application Token see: Application Token

Why don't I see any vacancies?

Jobs are displayed under the following conditions (You need Carerix administrator rights for this):

  • In Carerix, the medium-code of publications have to be set to web
    (or intentionally match a custom medium-code which is used in the plugin)

  • Last publication date is on or after today. Please note, check if necessary in the Carerix application:

    • Publication Basic tab: Last publication date

    • Publication Admin tab: Closing date

    • Job: Start Date

To verify you can look at https:/ /, containing all vacancies are displayed according to the above condition (medium = web) (substitute 'applicationname' to the name of your Carerix application)

Why can't I edit the job posts?

Yes, you can manually add a Featured Image (open the job post and add Featured image). (Be aware that manual changes in the job posts texts are overridden by the next vacancy sync, but as the featured image is not part of vacancy syncs it won't be removed)

You can check by forcing a manual sync: Located in Wordpress → Dashboard → Carerix → Settings → Tab Settings → Button 'Synchronize new/changed items from Carerix'.

Can I show the application form below the vacancy texts?

Yes, go to Wordpress → Dashboard → Carerix → Sources

For each source, locate the section Publication Details Footer, and replace the shortcode [cx_apply_button] with [cx_apply_form]. From now on, the apply button (which links to a separate application page) is replaced by the application form.

Can I show a featured image in a vacancy post?

Yes, you can manually add a Featured Image. Simply open the job post and add Featured image. You need editing rights in WordPress. Be aware that manual changes in the job posts texts are overridden by the next vacancy sync, but as the featured image is not part of vacancy syncs it won't be removed.

You can check by forcing a manual sync: Located in Wordpress → Dashboard → Carerix → Settings → Tab Settings → Button 'Synchronize new/changed items from Carerix'.

Can I add an image within the paragraphs of the vacancy texts?

Yes, you can add HTML in the publication text, so you can add a Youtube video as you would in a WordPress post. In the Carerix application the Carerix user needs to add a little piece of HTML code in the publication text:

  1. In the Carerix application open the publication text where you want to add the image

  2. Switch the editor to HTML mode

  3. Insert the HTML-image-tag in the HTML source code. For example:

  1. <img src="" alt="ALT Text" />

  2. Save the changes

  3. Sync the WordPress plugin on the website

Can I add a youtube video into the vacancy text?

Yes, you can add HTML in the publication text, so you can add a Youtube video as you would in a WordPress post.

  1. In Carerix edit the desired publication text where you want to insert the video.

  2. You can simply insert the youtube link, for example:


  2. Or you can use the shortcode:

  1. [embed width="600px" ][/embed]

  2. Save the changes

  3. Sync the WordPress plugin on the website

It seems as if the jobs do not sync?

Required skill: Wordpress administrator

Perhaps you have moved jobs to the trash. Remove them permanently from the trash. After synchronization, they are recreated again and are visible.

Furthermore, if you use the “Synchronize by REST-API (beta)” setting (WP Dashboard → Carerix → Settings → Tab Settings), make sure you do a full jobs sync by clicking on the “Enforce full sync of all items from Carerix” button.

Can I create a custom text confirmation or confirmation page?

Yes, that's possible. You need Wordpress administrator rights and do the following:

  1. Go to Wordpress → Dashboard → Carerix → Applicaton Forms and open the desired form

  2. Select bottom of the form to 'Confirmation message' if you want a standard confirmation text if you want to refer to a specific WordPress page. You can also enter a URL.

Can I monitor conversions with Google Analytics?

Yes, that's possible:

  • Make sure the Google Analytics (page) tracker code is already present for all site pages

  • Create a specific Wordpress page as 'Thank you page' (see above)

  • In Google Analytics you can track the statistics of this page)

  • You could also add this as one of your Goals (for more advanced users)

Also see Applicant Source Tracking for tracking candidates in Carerix throughout their application process.

Show Candidates on a website

Candidate information is not available anymore because of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

How to search / filter by taxonomy?

You need WordPress administrator rights to add a plugin with this feature.

Jobs include taxonomy by Country and Region, Function and Training. These can be used with other plugins or widgets. For example, the 'Search & Filter' plugin. See Recommended Plugins & Widgets.

Try this shortcode as a 'getting started' in a sidebar widget if you use the 'Search & Filter' plugin:

[searchandfilter taxonomies="search,category,region,education,functiongroups,procedure" order_by="date" hide_empty="1" submit_label="Search" search_placeholder="Search"]

Can I use a search radius from a postal code area?

With the 'Carerix Search widget' it is possible to search by radius. These can be found under Wordpress → Dashboard → View → Widgets. You need WordPress editing rights. However, if you use a third party search-plugin (like Search & Filter or Jet SmartFilters) you cannot use this radius function because of technical limitations.

Can I change the styling of various plug-in elements like headings and forms?

Yes, the plugin has minimal styling so it basically follows the theme used. Additionally, you can of course use their own styling. We recommend that you do this in a child theme. If you wish to update this theme than this stylesheet is in fact not overwritten.

Can I make a form 'Create Job' (submit a vacancy)?

The plugin does not support this functionality.

You can create a 3rd party form (e.g. plugin Contactform7) to offer this. However you still need to manually process this submission in Carerix (create client and job order).

The titles and buttons show in the wrong language?

Required skill: Wordpress administrator

Assuming you use the site in a single-language setup.
The plugin follows the language of the website as set in Wordpress→Dashboard→Settings→General. If you change the site language to Dutch than all the titles of the jobs will be regenerated (after a fulle jobs sync).

Please note: Some links could change due tot the language conversion .

Can I change the text of the headings, labels, buttons for vacancy texts and application forms?

Required skill: Wordpress theme/frontend designer

Yes, starting from version 2.21.0 this is possible.

New method

You need (s)FTP credentials for the WordPress website to do this. The idea is to override portions of the plugin's language file within your own child theme. That way you are sure the language modifications aren't reverted when a new plugin version is released.

In this example we will change the heading text “Introductie” (introduction) which appears in the vacancy texts. We assume you've set the Wordpress site language to Dutch and have the site running in a child theme.

  1. Create a blank PHP-file called

nl-NL.resources.php in {WORDPRESS-ROOT}/wp-content/themes/your-child-theme/CxWordpress/assets/resources/ Change your-child-theme to your child theme directory name and create the subdirectories (CxWordpress/assets/resources) if needed.

  1. Edit the new file

nl-NL.resources.php as follows:

;<?php die()?> [CxPortal.message.field] introduction = "Intro (formerly Introductie)" requirements = "Wat neem jij mee? (formerly Functie-eisen)" offer = "Wat bieden wij? (formerly Aanbod)" organization = "Over deze werkgever (formerly Organisatie)" function = "Wat ga je doen? (formerly Functie)" information = "Meer informatie (formerly Inlichtingen)" application = "Solliciteren bij (formerly Sollicitatie)" closingDate = "Sluitingsdatum (formerly Sluitdatum)" [general.button]

apply = "Versturen (formerly Solliciteren)"

  1. Do a full sync from Carerix to regenerate the job posts (Wordpress→Dashboard → Carerix → Settings → Button “Enforce full sync of all items from Carerix” or “Synchronize new/changed items from Carerix”)


  • Our new file nl-NL.resources.php is based on {WORDPRESS-ROOT}/wp-content/plugins/CxWordpress/assets/resources/nl-NL.resources.php. You can copy all desired elements from there to your own resource file.

  • Each section of language elements starts with a section heading [xxxxxxx] (recognized by the brackets).

Alternative method

To change the default titles or lyrics of the plugin, you could use this plugin: Real-time Find and Replace allows you to change text or HTML code (client-side), eg. You could modify the HTML code like in the example below:

How do I show the vacancies in other languages ​​on a multilingual website?

The Carerix plugin works perfectly with WPML, one of the best WordPress plugins multilingual. The price of +/- € 80 for WPML is worth it, see

Use Carerix media such as 'web' and 'web-fr' etc … and publish jobs to the appropriate medium for each language. The plugin will automatically use the medium, every job post will be created in the language installed on as WPML and corresponding to the used medium.

For example

  • Publication 1 with Dutch text (Vacancy 123 published to web)

  • Publication 2 with English text (Vacancy 123 published to web-en)

  • Publication 3 with French text (Vacancy 123 published to web-fr)

  • Publication 4 with German text (Vacancy 123 published to the web-de)

  • etc

Use the medium code web-XX ', where XX is the ICU Locale is a language.

N.B. Suppose you already publish vacancies in Dutch. Then you don't want to lose or have to re-publish vacancies while implementing the multilingual feature. You can change media very simple in the Carerix Application: Rename 'web' to 'web-en'.
Note : Do this only if WPML is arranged on the site, the plugin will pick this at the next synchronization. Standard reads the plugin 'web'.

Can I offer an RSS feed of all job vacancies or by function?

Required skill: Wordpress administrator

Yes, before you can use standard WordPress RSS feeds. The URLs for this example:
/Category/publications/feed /
For an example

Can I submit a sitemap to Google Search Console?

Yes, use the following URL:

When I enable 'Google For Jobs' why do I get warnings from a (structured data) testing tool?

These are warnings and not blocking errors.

  • Google recommends you to provide detailed information about the vacancies. At the moment it's not possible to fully map the Carerix vacancy information to the Google For Jobs structure. But the most important data is covered

  • Also, Google For Jobs wants to know the address location of the jobs. Most clients of Carerix don't want to reveal this because it's sensitive business information. So this high level of detail is left out.

Can I customize the labels in the URL (such as ../category/, ../publications/ etc)?

No, this can not (yet)

I want to use my own social media plugin to share jobs. Is that possible?

Required skill: Wordpress theme/frontend designer

Yes, that's possible. The job source feed check your social media out. And installing your own social media plugin.
See Recommended Plugins & Widgets. We recommend Shareaholic wholeheartedly. }

Why should I enable this: 'Reporting its location'?

We can continue to make the plugin better and better with the necessary feedback that we receive from the plugin. No vacancy or candidate data is send, so there is no privacy issue, and it gives no performance issues.

How to enable logging and where is the logfile?

You can enable the logging in Wordpress → Dashboard → Carerix → Settings → Tab Settings. The logfile is created in


The logfile directory can grow fast in size which may lead to your site running out of diskspace. So make sure you only enable it if you experience problems.

Where are the uploaded documents?

Candidate documents (e.g. a CV because of a job application) are submitted to the Carerix system, but temporarily uploaded to the following folder to process it:


After a few hours the files are automatically removed by the plugin and will only reside in the Carerix system.

Note: make sure you have disabled “developers logging” (see elsewhere in this FAQ), because candidate details (needed for debugging) are stored in the logfile too.

I got a warning some directories are not writeable by PHP?

Carerix Warning: The Following directories are not writeable by PHP
Please make sure all subdirectories of {WORDPRESS-ROOT}/wp-content/plugins/CxWordpress/tmp/ are writable by PHP. Generally you can change these permissions by your (s)FTP client.

Why not Custom Post Types instead of regular posts for vacancies?

There are pros and cons to read jobs Custom Post Types in Wordpress.


  • Templates: Web builder can use a custom template specifically for job post types.

  • Filters: 3rd Party filters specifically for Custom post types are set

  • Consistency: Difference between news and jobs is clearly in the admin area.


  • Blog post listings: It is not possible to show vacancies in major blog listing.

  • Compatibility: Switch between regular and post types Custom post types can cause synchronization problems.

Currently we have chosen to jobs not offering as Custom Post Types because many of our customers use the standard features like blog listing.

I see tailstocks without text

Perhaps there is a space in your publication text. Because the field contains the text shown on the website, including the head. Check the according publication text in the Carerix application, as in the example above:

You can also clean the publication text by clicking on the button 'Code' and ing the code. In this case some HTML knowledge would be handy. In this case you have to remove the code <p>&#160;</p> , see example below:

How to use the 'cxwordpress_post_updated' hook?

Required skill: Wordpress theme/frontend designer with PHP knowledge

With this hook you can apply changes to a vacancy-post upon (creation/update) to have it better fit into your site/theme. It's useful to apply changes in text formatting or post-statuses.

Example, edit the file 'functions.php' in your activated child theme. Add the following:

function my_cx_post_preparation(array $postids, array $data, array $cxfields ) { $post_id = (int) $postids[0]; // First item is the WP post ID $post_data_v1 = $data[0]; // The original data that the CX WP plugin has saved/updated $_post = get_post( $post_id ); // Another way to access the post data $post_cxfields = $cxfields[0]; // First item holds an associative array of retrieved (raw) CX fields $pub_id = get_post_meta($post_id, 'guid', true); // CX publication ID // Example to retrieve some specific CX fields $cx_requirements = get_post_meta($post_id, 'requirementsInformation', true); $cx_function_group = get_the_terms($post_id, "functiongroups")[0]->name ?? ""; $cx_function_name = get_the_terms($post_id, "functions")[0]->name ?? ""; $cx_min_salary = $post_cxfields['minSalary'] + 0; $cx_max_salary = $post_cxfields['maxSalary'] + 0; $cx_period_salary = $post_cxfields['salaryPeriodClassification']; // MonthTag = per hour, HourTag = per month, etc. // Example to update the post content $_post ->post_content = "<h1>Hook `cxwordpress_post_updated` altered this post contents!</h1>" . $_post ->post_content; wp_update_post( $_post ); // Update post // Example to set post meta info. This is specifically for posts in the Divi theme. Note "_et" is an abbreviation for Elegant Themes. update_post_meta( $post_id, '_et_pb_page_layout', 'et_full_width_page'); // force Divi post as a full width page update_post_meta( $post_id, '_et_pb_show_title', 'off'); // turn Divi post titles off // Clean cache wp_cache_delete( $post_id, 'posts' ); } // Add the hook with prio 3 (default) and accepting 3 arguments

add_action( 'cxwordpress_post_updated', 'my_cx_post_preparation', 10, 3);

Create your own adjustments to the plugin

If someone alters (the code of) the plugin this will invalidate any form of support. Carerix can not support customizations. Also customizations will be lost at each update of the plugin!
