Topic-icon Insert JLinked into a component (Recruitment Agency Manager)

Active Subscriptions:

None
I have a component called Recruitment Agency Manager (RAM) made by Focusplus Development. Our website shows job vacancies through this component and I want to use JLinked to add an 'Apply with LinkedIn' button to each vacancy that in turn pulls the particular vacancies Job Title to the LinkedIn pop up window.

How can this be achieved?

You'd need to use the {JLinkedApply .... } button with the appropriate tags. If you are able to edit the template for your component and use PHP, you should be able to pull the exact details about the job position from the output of that component to make the Apply button unique to each page. A full syntax example for the Apply button tag is:
{JLinkedApply companyid=365848 [email protected] sourcecoast.com jobtitle=Tester joblocation=Austin,TX logo=http://www.sourcecoast.com/images/stories/extensions/jfbconnect/home_jfbconn.jpg themecolor=#5573b7 phone=false}
For more information on each setting, check out our configuration guide:
JLinked / LinkedIn Easy Tag Configuration Guide

I'd expect on you'd hardcode things like companyid, email to send the resume to, and perhaps logo. The rest of the information (title, location) can hopefully be dynamically added to each tag. If you need help with the PHP, just let us know. However, there's only so much we'll be able to do as I don't know that extension at all.

Hope that helps!

Hi there,
Thanks for your help.

I am able to do everything you have mentioned and it works correctly except for the dynamic side of things. I cannot dynamically add job title and location from each vacancy.
I have attached the PHP for the component so you can see what I have done, go to line 3623 for the code. You will see above the commented out code I used before that had the same problems. I simply cannot get the code right for the title and location.

Also, how can I remove the 'get hired faster' strap line and add my own question like you can do with the LinkedIn script?

Thanks

Andrew,
There was no file attached that I could see. I'll gladly *try* to look at it to see if I can understand where the title and location come from, but if you know the variable names or know where to look, that would help. A file that's at least 3,623 lines long is a very big file in PHP, frankly, and doesn't sound like it will be a lot of fun to try to understand it. Any tips would be welcome.

As for the "Get Hired Faster", as far as I know, that can't be removed. If you use the Apply button configuration tool there isn't an option to remove that. What LinkedIn script are you talking about where you have that control?

Thanks,
Alex

Hi Alex,

I got this working, I wasn't using the correct php tags to call the data.

Thanks
