- Show social networking links.
- Change the design of their personal website with background images and basic styles.

How to Install
Forget the Resume was built for ease of use. Since it is built using SQLite as a database and the base url is set dynamically, all you have to do is upload the directory to your server.
Once you have uploaded the files to your server, you can login by going to the settings page (http://you.com/settings). To login the username and password are both 'admin' (without the quotes). Be sure to update your password after you have logged in for the first time.
If you have issues with your settings not saving, then you will likely need to change the permissions on the /application/db folder so that they are writeable. I suggest trying 755, then 775, then 777 until settings are able to be saved.
This tool was created with love by Eric Binnion to be released on Art of Blog. This Github repository is meant as a way to store our source code. For more information about the project, visit Art of Blog.
