LinkedInclude

Description

LinkedIn discontinued support for personalized RSS feeds in December 2013.
This plugin imports posts by scraping your Author Post Activity page: https://www.linkedin.com/today/author/[author].
Posts are sanitized and saved to a new table in WordPress, preparing them for output into your widget.
The widget can be positioned in sidebars or footers like any other feed.

Boost the Traffic to your LinkedIn Posts

  • Industry Leaders using LinkedIn for their social or news broadcasts can direct their blog traffic back to LinkedIn.
  • Plugin can import LinkedIn posts from any number of authors.
  • Separate widgets can be placed into the templates to show posts by one author, or all author posts sorted by newest.
  • Additional widget controls built in for number of posts, module title and excerpt length.
  • Imported posts can be individually toggled for visibility.
