Adding resume

I’ve added my resume to my home/about page. This sounds simple, but it actually took a surprising amount of fiddling to make that happen. I decided to go with a WordPress plug-in. First I tried a LinkedIn plug-in, but the instructions on linking to the LinkedIn API weren’t great. So I went with Resume Builder, as recommended in this article.

The various sections titles weren’t particularly intuitive, but I got it figured out with a bit of fiddling. However, somewhere along the line of my theme and child theme and the resume theme, unordered lists lost their bullets. After some digging, banging my head against the wall, and taking a break to chat with my step-dad, I was able to figure out that I needed to put the resume-builder.css file into my parent theme’s directory and add ul elements to most of the description blocks. This isn’t ideal, as I’d rather have it in the child theme, which is, well, the point of child themes. But, short of that, this got it to work. Then, when I decided to change the color of the various section headers, I was actually able to do so easily, because I was more familiar with the CSS style.

Now if only I could figure out why Laravel is telling me this route doesn’t exist, when artisan tells me it does. . .
