  • It’s already possible with the latest version of the plugin, but you have to set the profile in each shortcode. Here is a link to a version which lets you set the profile using:
    [fb_linkedin_resume profile=”johnsmith” lang=”en”]

    You can also choose to only use the lang parameter in order to override your default settings if you want to offer the same page in different languages.

    This version also has an extra shortcode:

    I downloaded and used the version you linked to above, but no matter what I put in the shortcode as my profile, it uses the profile listed in the settings in the WordPress settings page. And if I leave the settings page blank in the WP backend, nothing shows on my page. Any suggestions?

    Could you post a Linkedin URL or username which doesn’t work and I’ll take a look.

    And I just remembered something. The script is not very robust. If you’re missing a quote around the username or the url, it will fail.

    The script works fine as long as it has something in the WP admin settings. So for example, I have the WP admin section set to my LinkedIn profile (marcuswickes) and then on my LinkedIn page template I am displaying 2 different profiles (marcuswickes and meganwickes) using the shortcodes as follows:

    [fb_linkedin_resume_full profile=”marcuswickes” lang=”en”]
    [fb_linkedin_resume_full profile=”meganwickes” lang=”en”]

    The page outputs 2 full LinkedIn profiles as you would expect but it displays the same profile 2x. The profile displayed is always whatever I have in the WP admin settings (so if I have marcuswickes in the settings, that’s what shows 2x on the page… but if i have meganwickes in the WP admin settings, that profile shows 2x on the page).

    And then if I simply remove the username from the WP admin settings, nothing shows on the page.

    Oh, I’m using a different shortcode 😀 and it only allows one profile per page, but I think the original version of the plugin does what you want.
    I didn’t want to set the profile for every shortcode I use, so I define one for the page via:
    [fb_linkedin_resume profile=”marcuswickes” lang=”en”]
    and then print what I want:
