How to create an upload field that will set the featured image

Featured ImageStarting with the release of WP Job Manager Field Editor 1.3.1, you can now setup a file upload field to be used for setting the featured image of the listing.

This will not set the listing as a “Featured Listing” this will only set the “Featured Image” on the listing.

Featured image for a listing is commonly used by themes and other plugins as the “image” of the post/listing.  Specifically the Jobify theme uses the featured image as the image for displaying any featured jobs on the homepage.

To do this is very easy, all you need to do is create a new field, and use the meta key featured_image  …. and that’s it!

Make sure to set the field as a file upload field, with the meta key featured_image, and that’s it!

Profit!
