This is a tutorial  to guide you  how to Add more skills in the profiles in FreelanceEngine.

Previously, when freelancers create their profiles, they are only able to add 5 skills. What should they do if they have more skills than 5 and want to impress the job-seekers with their qualifications?

It’s very simple. Just add these code into child-theme/functions.php file

add_action('wp_footer','increase_max_skill', 115);
    function increase_max_skill(){
   	 <script type="text/javascript">
   		 (function($, Models, Collections, Views) {
   			 $(document).ready(function() {
   				 Views.Skill_Control.prototype.addSkill = function(skill) {
   		             // this.model.set('skill', []);
   		             var duplicates = this.skill_list.find('input[type=hidden][value="' + skill + '"]'),
   		                 count = this.skill_list.find('li');
   		             if (duplicates.length == 0 && skill != '' && count.length < 10) {
   		                 var data = {
   		                     'name': skill
   		                 this.collection.add(new Models.Skill(data));
   		 })(jQuery, window.AE.Models, window.AE.Collections, window.AE.Views);

After that, the system of FreelanceEngine will allow freelancers to include as many skills as defined in the code!

However, if the ‘Select Skill From Predefined List’ option, which is in the Content, is selected, the system would not allow the users to add more than 5 skills. At this case, you have to edit code in js/profile.js file, in line 165


change the number 5 to the skill number you want freelancers can set.
