I'm trying to land a web designer job and wasn't sure as to what feel I should go for when designing my online resume? Should the site be more static with little emphasis on design, or should I go all out and show the employer what I'm capable of? My gut tells me to go with something simple. What do you think?

amflores, Whatever you do, make sure it is complete, no broken links, no under construction, no blank pages. As far as being simple or showing your design side; you could do both, keep the main areas basic, but link to the more detailed examples that really showcase all your skills.

An online resume should have the same purpose as any good website - to draw the user in and to get the user to take some action (in your case, hire you).

Think from the perspective of the potential employer.
They are probably looking for someone who can organize a site's structure well, create clean layouts, write clean code, and have it all wrapped up in an aesthetically appealing package.

I wouldn't include every bell and whistle that you are capable of creating, but I would mention that I could do it and as LisaB mentioned, link to detailed examples.
