LinkedIn Lite

Description

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Much to our disappointment, LinkedIn have changed their policy on the profile info available via their API. This means that this plugin is now only able to display a few parts of your profile. Any unavailable fields will be greyed-out in your admin settings page. Hopefully LinkedIn will change their minds!

You can display:

  • Profile picture
  • Full name
  • Job title / headline
  • Industry
  • Location
  • Positions held
  • Primary email
  • Link to your public profile on linkedin.

LinkedIn LITE allows a blog admin to authenticate their linkedIn profile for public display on the site. In Multisite mode it allows a single set of API keys to work across the entire multisite network.

Features:

  • Choose which parts of your profile to display.
  • Show your profile in pages and posts by using a shortcode.
  • Show your profile in sidebars using the widget.
  • Multisite options – Ability to run on a multisite network with just 1 set of API keys.

The plugin uses the LinkedIn API, to use it you will need a set of API keys. This is easy to set up and all instructions are included in the plugin.

IMPORTANT INFO FOR MULTISITE NETWORK USAGE:

  • Put the plugin in the regular ‘plugins’ folder.

  • In order to use a single set of API keys for the network you must activate the plugin on the root blog, this will add a new admin page into the Network-Admin ‘Settings’ menu where you can use your API key and secret key.
