Jobs & Experts Category Defaulting to first option on edit


When users go to edit a job on the front end of our site the drop-down of categories defaults to the first option (Accountancy). This means that when they have made their changes and save the job it automatically changes the job category to Accountancy unless they specifically re-select their desired category.

Is there any way around this?

    Hi Barry – DSM,

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    I could also replicate the same issue on my own test website. I am marking it as confirmed bug and notifying the plugin developer so it could be patched up in next version of this plugin.

    I am sorry but I am unable to provide an ETA of when exactly it will be fixed but we will try our best to get it sorted as soon as possible. Please keep an eye on this thread for updates.

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:

    Best Regards,


Thank NAME, for their help.
