I really don’t like when these new themes use fixed for thieir sidebar and I cannot see the full content of the sidebar. not good as far as I am concerned and I would not send out a resume with a layout like this. this would need to be changed before I would even consider using any of the current themes on sale.

You must consider that the viewer of your submitted resume may not appreciate the fancy layout as much as you do and certainly will miss some of your vital information if it is not displayed for them on your sidebar. Also to be considered is the potential screen resolution the employer may be using and that your resume better show up at its best on the worst screen resolution you can imagine.

I am sure most resumes would be printed but perhaps not depending on reaction to the HTML page they are able to view. If sending in a resume, you want to present yourself in the best light you can and a poorly functioning HTML resume won’t help the situation.

al_m473 it is like you are talking about a Cv I just submitted for review :p Less than 800 px wide and with a more classical approach to the cv – more professional color scheme, a 1 column layout with clearly divided sections and subsections and a a nice matching print style sheet. Works in IE6 flawlessly too.

I like what the other authors have submitted but feel that some of the more traditional recruiters are expecting something else (format wise) when looking at a CV. I built my item with this thing in mind.

I really hope it gets accepted. Take a look at it when it does and let me know what you think ;)

1) It’s not that hard to change from a fixed sidebar… it probably has something like this defined for the sidebar:

“position:fixed”

change that to…

“position:absolute” or “position:relative”

and more than likely the sidebar will now scroll with the rest of the page…

2) Have you thought about sending a note to the author(s) that this problem occurs for? I’m sure many of us are open to feedback and suggestions, but don’t always find them in forum threads…

I agree with luckykind, all you need to do is change one line of css and it will scroll with the rest of the page!

It is good to have the option though isnt it? So why not include it. (same with the photo etc, its all optional and very easy to remove)

haha that video is quite funny!!! My CV submission has been soft-accepted, so hoping that after re-submission with the relevant improvements mine will be up there. Looks like there is 4-5 in the category, that will hopefully give everyone else a good idea of what to include and hopefully get some good feedback.

Why was that rejected? Just curious.

Hey, everyone! As promised, we’ve just added a new sub-category specifically for Resumes/CV optimized for the web. Many of you mentioned that you were preparing your submissions….now is the time to upload!

The only requirement is that the resume prints relatively well; so make sure that you have a print stylesheet included.

P.S. We’ll be pricing between $7 – $12.

awesome!!

@webdesigndeluxe – it was rejected for the documentation. It was my fault because I left space to fill itin and clearly forgot to finish it off!!!

I went back and added loads of stuff, because as a buyer as well I think it’s really important.
