Resume/CV and portfolio templates and hosting. (3 posts)

    Hi, all.

    I would like to design my own resume/cv and portfolio to have it displayed online. I have already built a blog that is hosted by WordPress but now need a second site specific to my resume, professional history and portfolio. I couldn't find any resume-specific templates on WordPress' website site. Here are the questions I have:

    1. Are there good quality WordPress templates available for resumes and portfolio's? If so, where can I find them?

    2. In case these are not available from WordPress, how easy is it to have a third party template installed or transferred into a WordPress website?

    3. I have my own domain and server. My desire is to have my resume and portfolio hosted by my own server. How difficult is it to install a WordPress theme or template to run on my own server? The server is a Mac running Mac OS X server (v 10.6 if I am not mistaken). I need to emphasize that my knowledge of computers and particularly UNIX is limited.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    1. There are plenty of such themes which you can find freely. Try searching with "free portfolio WordPress themes" then you will find the one which you want.

    2&3. WordPress has so much options for this so I do not think that you need to go for third party template and its really easy to install.

    Hi, nepaliart.

    I will follow you suggestion and search for free themes. I have already found some really nice ones at themeforest dot com and their prices are very reasonable at an average cost of $5 to $15 for each theme.

    It is good and encouraging to hear that installing WordPress is not a difficult process. I would like to install it on my own server so that I can host my own wordpress sites. My server is a Mac running OS X (Leopard, if I'm not mistaken). I've read somewhere that aside from installing WordPress' software users who wish to run it also need to install PHO (???). Are there any step-by-step instructions on how to install WordPress on a Mac OS X server? Can you recommend any guide or tutorial that would show in a simple manner how to do it?

    Thank you very much for your help.
