Ok warriors. I'm going to try and solicit help for this project again. I just want to build a simple membership site that will allow someone to build and display their resume. A resume directory if you will. I have a copy of Wishlist Member and just need to be able to allow subscribers to create their resume and allow it to be publicly viewable to any perspective employer. At the same time they should be able to log into members area to edit the resume at any time. You would think this would be fairly easy to do but it has not worked out like that so far. Can any of you suggest how I can do this through the use of plugins, paid or free. I am even ready to pay someone to help me do this. PLEASE HELP! More details upon contact.

    Never mention offering payment in this forum... because your post will get deleted.

    There are sections of the WF where you can post your ads for jobs. Use them!

        Did you look around on the mainpage to find ALL the subforums?
        (hint: you want to hire...)

    As for the project you didn't give enough relevant info.

    Based on what you said - you wouldn't even need any "membership" gizmo... just a way to allow users to log in and create their resume. Any WP install can do that with proper settings and role management.

    You never mentioned whether those users would be paying customers. That would complicate it, of course.

    I could assume your project like these:

    1- A site which allows Job Seekers to create their resume in that site.
    2- Job Seekers could register and create their own resume.
    3- Job Seekers could login anytime to update/edit their own resume.
    4- Resumes will be display on your sites for the visitor or in your case (Employer) to see.

    These are the simple tasks to do if you know Wordpress more:

    1- Wordpress has the functions to allow New Member Registration.

    2- Each New Members could have different Roles & Capabilities (refer to this for details):
    • Administrator - somebody who has access to all the administration features within a single site.
    • Editor - somebody who can publish and manage posts including the posts of other users.
    • Author - somebody who can publish and manage their own posts.
    • Contributor - somebody who can write and manage their own posts but cannot publish them.
    • Subscriber - somebody who can only manage their profile.
    3- Therefore, each new registration (you call Employees) could assign with Author role; Contributor role if you want to moderate before publish their Resume.

    4- If you need the Registration Form, Login Form, and Forgot Password Form to be displayed on Front End, you could plugin such as "Theme My Login"; it's free and is available on Wordpress Plugin Repository.
    Alternatively, you could use Theme Framework such "Hybrid Framework" or "Hybrid Theme", it's also free too, because they have the built-in page templates for Registration, Login, and Forgot Password.

    5- You either use Wordpress Custom Fields to create some additional fields for your members (employees) to add some additional data for their resume.
    Alternatively, you could use Custom Post Type to divide Normal Post from your Custom Post Type (Resume Type).

    6- You still need to customize your template files to show those Custom Fields or to display Custom Post Type that you've created earlier.

    7- Just do customization or tweak here and there to suit your need.

    8- That's all! I can't explain clear of details of each steps! If you seem hard to DIY, just head to the coders to achieve this project. If in this WF, you must go here: Wanted - Members Looking To Hire You
    I just wanna tell you that most of the links in the signature are trash and/or a trap to make you pay!
