Prerequisites

You must have the following plugins or files available. We will add gravity forms support, as well as a verion which will not depend on either plugin. But we strongly recommend using ACF if you want to customize your resume.

  • ACF with Google Maps
    https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/

You will need to enter your own google maps api key in this file.
am-resume/functions.php

  • Font Awesome
    This plugin assumes you have font awesome. The icons will not show up without Font Awesome but you can easily create your own template and use your own icons.

  • Animate.css
    Animations are optional but if you would like to use them.

Animate.css

Themes and Templates:

  • Themes

A theme is a small css file that is used in addition to your main css file. A theme can be changed from the swatches on the top right that allow you to switch from light to dark theme.

There is a basic line of jquery in the default.js file that switches stylesheets.

  • Templates

And templates are css, js and php file used to render the resume.

There is a default template included in the plugin at templates/default/

  • Creating a New Template

To create a new template, you only have to add the files you want to change.

There is an included template called default-theme that serves as an example of how you can override whatever file you want in the default template.

Then you just enter your new theme name in the ACF field for your Resume Post.

npm Deploy Styles to Assets Folder

I have used simple NPM scripts to compile css. There is no need to install gulp since there are not a lot of tasks. To deploy stylesheets to the assets folder, you can just type the command below. You will need to install sass globally for this command to work, which you should already have!

npm deploy;<h3>How do I create a new template or theme?</h3>

You can copy files one by one from the templates/default folder and place them in a new directory in templates.

How do I add a child theme?

You can also add a child theme so you don’t have to copy the entire template. To add a child theme, create a new folder for your theme in the templates directory. Then copy only the files you want to customize into the folder. Set your template to use the child theme and that’s it!

Will this plugin work without ACF?

As of now, this plugin requires ACF but this will change in the future.

Installation

  1. First make sure that the ACF plugin is installed and activated already. We will be adding support for Gravity Forms as well as a standalone version. There is settings page as of now and all the options are configured on a per resume basis via ACF.

  2. Go to your site’s ACF Tools and use the import button to import the JSON in the file acf.json.

  3. If your site doesn’t already use Font Awesome then you can add the cdn files in your template file.

    wp_enqueue_style(‘print-resume’, plugin_dir_url(FILE) . ‘default/default.css’);
    wp_enqueue_script(‘page-resume’, plugin_dir_url(FILE) . ‘default/default.js’, array(‘jquery’), false, true);

  4. Activate this plugin and look for Resume in the left hand column
