My WordPress Widget shows an error message. What does it mean?
Depending on the error message, it can be related to one of the issues below:
The selected publisher is invalid: This error occurs when there’s an invalid publisher ID parameter in the widget configuration. You need to make sure that you are using the correct Publisher ID, which you can find in your JobLookup publisher account under the “Jobbox” menu.
The selected channel is invalid: This error occurs when there’s invalid channel parameter in the widget configuration. You are only permitted to use channels which have been previously defined in your JobLookup publisher account.
What can I change in the settings of the WordPress widget?
If you are using a dark background, It’s best to enable the light logo option. This will make the JobLookup logo appear more clearly.
Any Channel considered to be valid in JobLookup Jobbox plugin once you have defined it in your account.
By default, the widget looks for the ‘keyword’ variable in the URL to extract the user searched term, and will return the related jobs based on this value. It is the same behaviour for the area, and looks for the ‘location’ variable in the URL. You can overwrite these variable names by providing an alternative in the ‘Keyword’ and ‘Area’ variable names. As an example, if your URL structure follows the pattern below, you can overwrite the default variable names by setting the ‘Keyword’ variable name to ‘mykey’ and ‘Area’ variable name to ‘myplace’.
