I have been using moderncv and I was thinking of adding my stackoverflow and github profiles to my resume, unfortunately there doesn't seem any macros for that (is there?)

I wasn't using \homepage{..} so I added one of the profiles there. If I add another \homepage{..}, the first one disappears so I tried adding the other one with \extrainfo{..}. It looks ok this way but the problem is first link is clickable while the second one isn't.

So my question is:

  • how can I add two \homepage{..} 's
  • and/or how can I make \extrainfo{..} clickable
  • and/or how hard it is to maybe create a macro specific to online profiles like \profilepage{..} (I don't have any experience with macros).

\extrainfo is the way to go. To create a link, use \httplink, i.e.


If you're using the casual or banking style, don't put the \\ there, but use \footersymbol or \maketitlesymbol instead.

As for how hard it is to create macros for online profiles, it's planned for future versions of moderncv :)
