New Theme: MyResume
In the market for a new job? Then MyResume is the perfect theme to create an elegant and professional online resume, and improve your online presence. MyResume is sleek, simple and easy to use, but also boasts some great features that will make handling your resume all the easier. While this is one of my more basic themes, I am quite fond of the design and its simple functionality. For more info you can view the Live Demo, or browse the Features Page for more information.
MyResume Features Overview
1. Five Unique Color Schemes – MyResume comes with five color schemes to choose from. If you don’t like the Wooden look, then try out the Stone, Canvas, Modest or Subtle variations. You can preview these colors schemes on the theme’s features page.
2. Gallery/Portfolio Integration – The gallery feature of MyResume is very easy to use. To handle this section I created custom shortcodes to make adding each portfolio item quick and painless. To add a new image to the page, simply type [portfolio]image.jpg[/portfolio] and you’re done!
3. Social Networking Integration – Your resume is all about connections, so I have added a social networking section to the resume. This section is not mandatory, and can be added to any page using Widgets. Each item in the connect section is its own widget added to the custom “connect” sidebar. I even created a bunch of custom social networking icons for this section, so if you need some free icons be sure to download them here!
4. Easily Manage Resume/Tab Items – All of the content is handled via WordPress pages. You can add these pages to your main resume, in which case each page added becomes a new section on your homepage. Or, you can choose to define a page as a new tab, in which case a link to the page will be added to the navigation bar at the top right. Each of the pages you see in the nav menu in the demo (connect, contact) are custom pages. As an example I have added the Contact Form 7 plugin to the contact page to give you an idea of what is possible.
I hope people put this new theme to good use. Let me know what you think – what you like, what you would change – all comments are welcome!
