Help with WP Job Manager Single post template.

Hello,  I am having problems with a WordPress plugin call WP-Job Manager, particularly trying to create a custom template for single jobs.

I have customized the default template by copying "content-job_listing.php"  from the plugin directory to  /themes/enfold/job_manager/content-job_listing.php. This works great, and is my template for all jobs. See code below.

<?php
/**
 * Single job listing.
 *
 * This template can be overridden by copying it to yourtheme/job_manager/content-single-job_listing.php.
 *
 * @see         https://wpjobmanager.com/document/template-overrides/
 * @author      Automattic
 * @package     WP Job Manager
 * @category    Template
 * @since       1.0.0
 * @version     1.28.0
 */

if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) {
	exit; // Exit if accessed directly
}

?>
<div class="single_job_listing">
	
	<h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
		
	<div class="hide_above_mobile">
		<?php display_job_phonenumber_data(); ?>
	</div>
	
	<?php if ( $apply = get_the_job_application_method() ) :
		if ( $apply->type === 'url' ) {
	    	$application_href = $apply->url;
		} elseif ( $apply->type === 'email' ) {
	    	$application_href = sprintf( 'mailto:%1$s%2$s', $apply->email, '?subject=' . rawurlencode( $apply->subject )  );
		}
	?>
	
	<div class="application">
		<a class="application_button button" href="<?php echo $application_href; ?>" target="_blank"><?php _e( 'Apply for job', 'wp-job-manager' ); ?></a>
	</div>

	<?php endif; ?>

	<?php the_content() ?>
	<?php the_field('job_main_content'); ?>
	
	<?php if ( $apply = get_the_job_application_method() ) :
		if ( $apply->type === 'url' ) {
	    	$application_href = $apply->url;
		} elseif ( $apply->type === 'email' ) {
	    	$application_href = sprintf( 'mailto:%1$s%2$s', $apply->email, '?subject=' . rawurlencode( $apply->subject )  );
		}
	?>
	
	<div class="application">
		<a class="application_button button" href="<?php echo $application_href; ?>"><?php _e( 'Apply for job', 'wp-job-manager' ); ?></a>
	</div>
	<?php endif; ?>

	<div class="hide_above_mobile">
		<?php display_job_phonenumber_data(); ?></div>
	</div>

</div>

So for the new template, which I want for select jobs, I did this.

/themes/enfold/content-single-job_listing-big-6.php
<?php
/**
 * 
 * Template Name: Big 6 Layout
 * Template Post Type: job_listing
 */

	if ( !defined('ABSPATH') ){ die(); }
	
	global $avia_config;

	/*
	 * get_header is a basic wordpress function, used to retrieve the header.php file in your theme directory.
	 */
	 get_header();


 	 if( get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'header', true) != 'no') echo avia_title();
 	 
 	 do_action( 'ava_after_main_title' );
	 ?>

		<div class='container_wrap container_wrap_first main_color <?php avia_layout_class( 'main' ); ?>'>

			<div class='container'>

				<main class='template-page content  <?php avia_layout_class( 'content' ); ?> units' <?php avia_markup_helper(array('context' => 'content','post_type'=>'job_listing'));?>>

                    <?php
                    /* Run the loop to output the posts.
                    * If you want to overload this in a child theme then include a file
                    * called loop-page.php and that will be used instead.
                    */

                    $avia_config['size'] = avia_layout_class( 'main' , false) == 'entry_without_sidebar' ? '' : 'entry_with_sidebar';
                    get_template_part( 'includes/loop', 'big6' );
                    ?>

                <!--end content-->
				</main>


			</div><!--end container-->

		</div><!-- close default .container_wrap element -->


 	<!-- REALLY stop The Loop. -->
<?php get_footer(); ?>


/themes/enfold/includes/loop-big6.php
<?php
global $avia_config, $post_loop_count;

$post_loop_count= 1;
$post_class 	= "post-entry-".avia_get_the_id();



// check if we got posts to display:
if (have_posts()) :

	while (have_posts()) : the_post();
?>

		<article class='post-entry post-entry-type-page <?php echo $post_class; ?>' <?php avia_markup_helper(array('context' => 'entry')); ?>>

			<div class="entry-content-wrapper clearfix">


					<?php the_content(); ?>
					<?php the_field('job_main_content'); ?>
	
	
					<br /><br />
					<?php display_job_phonenumber_data(); ?>

				
				<?php
           
				
				wp_link_pages($avia_wp_link_pages_args);

				if(has_tag() && is_single())
				{
					echo '<span class="blog-tags minor-meta">';
					the_tags('<strong>'.__('Tags:','avia_framework').'</strong><span> ');
					echo '</span></span>';
				}
                echo '</footer>';

				?>					
		</article><!--end post-entry-->


<?php
	$post_loop_count++;
	endwhile;
	else:
?>

    <article class="entry">
        <header class="entry-content-header">
            <h1 class='post-title entry-title'><?php _e('Nothing Found', 'avia_framework'); ?></h1>
        </header>

        <?php get_template_part('includes/error404'); ?>

        <footer class="entry-footer"></footer>
    </article>

<?php

	endif;
?>

It works somewhat,  but it is also pulling from the /themes/enfold/job_manager/content-job_listing.php file.   So it's pulling this

<div class="single_job_listing">
	
	<h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
		
	<div class="hide_above_mobile">
		<?php display_job_phonenumber_data(); ?>
	</div>
	
	<?php if ( $apply = get_the_job_application_method() ) :
		if ( $apply->type === 'url' ) {
	    	$application_href = $apply->url;
		} elseif ( $apply->type === 'email' ) {
	    	$application_href = sprintf( 'mailto:%1$s%2$s', $apply->email, '?subject=' . rawurlencode( $apply->subject )  );
		}
	?>
	
	<div class="application">
		<a class="application_button button" href="<?php echo $application_href; ?>" target="_blank"><?php _e( 'Apply for job', 'wp-job-manager' ); ?></a>
	</div>

	<?php endif; ?>

	<?php the_content() ?>

Try adding a style at the top of the content-job_listing.php. This will hide the title and the contents below it.

<style>
.single_job_listing{
display:none
visibility:hidden
}
</style>

hope this helps
