Forums » Plugin: WP LinkedIn Auto Publish » Finally got it to work

  • This plugin quickly and easily posted my blog posts to LinkedIn, BUT the back link (the link created by LinkedIn to link back to my blog post) always went to a 404 Page Not Found. I had to go back to my WP editor, copy the post’s URL and then paste it into LinkedIn manually.

    Plugin creator could not figure out the problem. I discovered it accidentally: in my WP Settings, my Permalink Structure was set to “Post name”. When I changed it to “Plain”, the LinkedIn back links worked.

    Of course, I had to edit ALL my LinkedIn blog posts manually, copying and pasting the new URL for each blog post into the LinkedIn post.

    I don’t post that often to LinkedIn, so it’s questionable whether this plugin is helpful to me or not, considering the time wasted initially. However, the plugin is free, so I’m not complaining (much).

    If you have a problem with it, you might try checking/changing your WP Permalink settings to see if that fixes it.
