Feature Survey – What would you want in a resume theme?

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I’ve been toying with the idea of developing a custom resume/portfolio theme for some time … but just haven’t gotten around to it. Lately, though, I’ve fallen in love with a few new site designs and feel that it’s time we had a truly interactive and dynamic theme to power resumes and portfolios with WordPress.

So here it is, your opportunity to participate in a WP crowdsourcing project:

What features would you most like to see in a resume/portfolio theme for WordPress and why?

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

I would like to see dynamically expanding detail boxes, so you can provide optionally more details on specific areas of experience (such as a code snippet, or more complicated project information) should the interested party wish for more. That way you keep it simple and clean yet show them there is more under the hood should they wish to see it.

Method 2

I like the way that Elegant Themes did their Resume Theme, but I have a few mods I’d like to see done to it.

  • Project details (with gallery etc) in a lightbox
  • Contact form
  • Post feed

Method 3

In a resume site, I’d like to see the option to write up my experience both in functional terms and in chronological terms. I get to choose. I don’t want it to be strictly chronological, as I may want to draw on some earlier life experience when looking for my next job or new clients.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
