AngelList

Description

Associate an individual post with one or more AngelList companies to automatically display company logo, summary, description, key people, and more after your post content.

The plugin generates HTML markup for posts with associated companies. Company profiles are cached on your server for fast access without remote requests to AngelList servers with each page load.

Includes Schema.org markup for rich company metadata and search engine friendliness.

Screenshots

  • Search AngelList by company name, add one or more companies, and reorder to add context to your posts.
  • Display one or more claimed or community-generated company profiles after your post content.

Installation

  1. Upload to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Start a search from a new post or edit post page

FAQ

How do I disable Schema.org markup from appearing on my page?

HTML5 microdata may cause undesired results for some document types and theme markup. Tap into the angellist_schema_org filter from your theme’s functions.php file or one of your site’s custom plugins to override the default true state and disable Schema.org and its microdata output.

How do I change the target attribute generated by AngelList links?

Links to AngelList pages open in a new window by default through a _blank browsing context. XHTML themes may dislike the target attributes on anchor elements. Tap into the angellist_browsing_context filter from your theme’s functions.php file or one of your site’s custom plugins to override this default context with another valid context name. Return an empty string ('') to remove the attribute.

I run a high-traffic site. I think I have been rate limited

The AngelList API allows up to 1000 requests per hour bucketed by IP. A single company may consume three API requests (company data + people data + jobs data) while generating the necessary markup, effectively limiting sites to 333 generated company profiles per hour.

If you run into rate limiting issues you may consider bumping your transient cache times for each company. You may also contact the AngelList API team to raise the limits for your server IP addresses.
