I have a slider somewhere and it doesn't work anymore when I add the recommendations' scroller

It's usually due to an incompatibility between the different javascript components used. To solve the incompatibility it's better to choose one of the component and use only this one. To change the component that is used by the recommendations' scroller you will need to customize the recommendations.php template.

I am constantly asked to get a new access token

There can be several reasons to that problem, check the following:

  • Make sure your server's time is correct.
  • If you are using an external cache system make sure it's properly configured.
  • Try to uncheck the Verify SSL peer option on the plugin's settings page.

Since I updated to v1.6 the recommendation slider does not work anymore

Since v1.6 the call to add the javascript for the recommendations slider to the page as been moved to the recommendations.php template. If you customized that template you must add the following line to the top of your custom template: wp_enqueue_script('responsive-scrollable');

The updates shortcode (or the updates widget) doesn't show anything

Try regenerating the access token from the settings page, the plugin needs new authorization to access your network updates.

Profile picture is only 80x80 pixels is there a way to get a bigger one from LinkedIn?

Unfortunately not, LinkedIn has bigger pictures but they make only the 80x80 version available to theit API. If you want a bigger image you will have to provide it and modify the profile template to show this one.
