[Resolved] LinkedIn button URL not working

  • I had the same problem! But then I decided to edit the plugin myself and found a fix for it.

    1. Go to your installed plugins.
    2. Find WP About Author.
    3. Edit the plugin (it says “edit” under its name.)
    4. You’ll see a list of files on the right side of the screen. Choose “wp-about-author/wp-about-author.php”
    5. Look for this line in there:

    $socials['linkedin'] = array('title'=>'LinkedIn', 'link'=>'http://ca.linkedin.com/pub/XXXXXXXXXXX/XXX/XXXX/%%username%%', 'icon'=> WPAUTHORURL_URL .'/images/linkedin.png');

    6. I copied the whole link in there as you see (I put xxx in there cause i didnt want my profile to show up here). You can copy the whole link and then in the linked in box back in user’s page put the very last part of the link.

    I know this sounds very harsh but this plugin is not coded properly at all.

    hope it helps.

    Thanks for the feedback erfanik, I was able to get the button working with your help. Much appreciated!
