[resolved] LinkedIn Profile Link (4 posts)

    Hi

    Thank you for your intelligent and fexible implementation of your plugin.

    Can you explain how I am able to link my profile to my LinkedIn profile? My link has not the structure which is expected by the Plugin.

    My link:
    http://www.linkedin.com/pub/claudio-bernasconi/65/69/5ab

    As you can see it is not compatible with the definition in your plugin which starts with: http://www.linkedin.com/in/

    So instead of /in/ I would have to have /pub/.

    I am pretty sure this must be my mistake. Maybe you could help me to get my link in the right format?

    Thanks in advance.

    I temporarily fixed this issue by replacing the definition of the following variable in the config.php file:

    const linkedin_url_prefix = "http://www.linkedin.com/in/";

    to

    const linkedin_url_prefix = "http://www.linkedin.com/";

    I would suggest this as a bugfix for the next version.

    Hi Claudio,

    Thanks, I checked my linkedin and noticed that mine is linkedin.com/in and not linkedin.com/pub

    I might change it to linkedin.com instead and let users enter the other bits themselves.

    Hi Claudio,

    The LinkedIn prefix change has been introduced in version 1.5.6

    Thanks,
