    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. In theory, any decent theme could be used for a resume site. Try browsing http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/

    2. Not easy - especially if you are not comfortable using HTML, CSS & PHP. You also need a good working knowledge of WordPress. I'd suggest starting with Theme Development.

    3. See Installing_WordPress
