    Resume Extended isn't quite fully baked, as the note on the plugin page said.

    I can't seem to recreate the problem. So, I'm going to need some more info. Do you have any other plugins installed? which version of PHP?

    No problem at all and Glad to help out.

    Local setup, stats are:
    WordPress: 2.8.2
    MySQL: 5.0.45-community-nt
    PHP Version : 5.2.6

    Disabled all plugins and re-activated on this plugin, failure still occurs: resume-extended.php on line 337

    Live Site setup, stats are:
    WordPress: 2.8.3
    MYSQL Version : 5.0.32-Debian_7etch10-log
    PHP Version : 5.2.0-8+etch15

    First time activation worked with no error and all original plugins activated. Testing further.

    It's the use of short tags. Not all php installations have short tags enabled. You should upgrade "<?" to "<?php" and "<?=" -> "<?php echo "

    This solves the problems. I got it to work by doing it manually in all the files.

    Thanks kevinh456 if you have a patch, I'll apply it and put it in the next version.

    Aaron, I'm wondering if you could create an MU friendly version of this? Would you be interested in doing some custom development to extend the features of this plugin (i.e. additional/custom fields)?

    great idea for a plugin. i am struggling to get a client's word-based resume into wordpress. i love your importing and exporting options.

    my suggestion is to make the headings (skills, awards etc) customizable. that would make this plugin hugely useful for building many kinds of documents. it could the the 'bulleted list builder' instead of just a resume builder. maybe abstract it to certain kinds of lists - one version with dates, one version with sub sections, a featured version that has slightly larger text etc.

    thanks for the feedback, I'm afraid Word import wont be ready for some time. The Word file format is proprietary making it difficult to find resources and documentation.

    The upcoming v0.3.0 will include theming, so you could make the headings what ever you want.
