Recently I had a problem; the plugin I was using to display my resume on my site mysteriously started causing WordPress to throw a weird error. Not to get too technical about it but the issue was a little more complicated than I was willing to deal with personally and I was prepared to resign myself to not having an online resume for a while. Sigh…
Fast forward about a month and the hoped for “fix” for the plugin never came. This left me with no alternative than to write my own. Yay!!
Looking at the plugin I was using, LinkedIn hResume, and noticing some of the flaws (like the plugin ONLY working with LinkedIn) I realized I could one-up the plugin and make something a lot more useful to more people by writing a new, custom resume plugin.
And that’s what we have here; WP-hResume. WP-hResume is a wordpress plugin that takes any hresume encoded webpage and allows you to place the content on your site. It’s been tested using both LinkedIn and Stack Overflow Careers as well as quite a few stand alone hresume pages. It works wonderfully.
