WP LinkedIn

This plugin enables you to add various part of your LinkedIn profile to your WordPress blog.

Following the modifications to the LinkedIn developer program, version 2.0 of this plugin introduces breaking changes. More information on vedovini.net

This plugin provides you with shortcodes to insert your full LinkedIn profile and a rotating scroller of your LinkedIn recommendations in any WordPress page or post. Please check vedovini.net for examples.

The following shortcodes are available:

  • [li_recommendations width="480" length="200" interval="1000"] displays a rotating scroller with the recommendations you received
  • [li_profile] displays your LinkedIn profile. Optional attributes are fields and lang to overide the general settings.
  • [li_card] displays a simple LinkedIn card. Optional attributes are picture_width and summary_length, and fields and lang to overide the general settings.
  • [li_updates] displays your network updates. Optional attributes are count and only_self.
  • [li_picture] displays the original profile picture (size may vary depending on what you uploaded to LinkedIn). Optional attributes are width, height and class.

To customize the rendering of the shortcodes you must create a linkedin folder in your theme or in the wp-content folder and then copy the template file you want to modify. The default template files are located in the plugin's templates folder.

See this post for more details on customization: Showing more of your LinkedIn profile with WP LinkedIn

There are also several widgets. One widget displays the recommendations scroller, one displays your network updates, and two widgets show a "profile card" - one of which is the standard LinkedIn JavaScript profile widget, the other uses a customizable template.

ATTENTION: 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');

We welcome volunteers to translate that plugin into more languages. If you wish to help then contact @cvedovini on Twitter or use that contact form.

Please check the WP LinkedIn Multi-Users extension if you need to show the profiles of multiple users.

And if you need to show company profiles or company updates, please check the WP LinkedIn for Companies extension.

Also available is the WP LinkedIn Advanced Templates extension that provides extended profile templates (including most of the profile sections) and a more sofisticated template for company page updates.
