LogicMelon JobRelay field reference guide

This page outlines all of the data that is received in WordPress from LogicMelon in the JobRelay feed.

Without any configuration, the job title is saved as the post title, the job description is saved as the post content and the job short description is saved as the post excerpt.

The job post date will be the date and time when the post was created, seconds or minutes from when it was published in LogicMelon.

The tables below outline the data that arrives in WordPress from the LogicMelon JobRelay feed. Data is saved by mapping it to WordPress meta or taxonomy terms.

geo_administrative_area_level_1_longstringEnglandThe long version of the first level administrative area.

It is worth noting that not all of this data is available for every job. JobRelay uses the Google Geo coding API to obtain Geo data for each job, using the job_location field.

The location is run through the API and the resulting data sent on. Depending on the location string, not all this data may be available.

For example, if the location sent via JobRelay is Lancashire, UK, a geo_city value will not be present. This is because the location is not specific enough to return a city value.
