While this plugin looks great, is easy to use, and very flexible, it is also very slow, as indicated in a previous post. My page is virtually unusable with this plugin.
Version 2.9.3 (current) doesn't work after upgrade to WP 4.0. before that it worked great!
Installed ... added linked in URL ... added shortcode ...
Nothing. Does not work.
This plug-in does not make use of the LinkedIn API. It uses a DOM Parser that calls a LinkedIn profile and then generates a huge array with the profile's DOM elements. Every time a function is called, the plug-in makes a call to a LinkedIn profile, generates a huge array all over again and then scans it for wanted "elements". There are issues with doing it this way. The array generated by the DOM parser takes a lot of computer resources because it is a huge array. A simple dump of it and it will freeze your browser by draining your computer memory. That proves to be a resource hog on the system. Because the parser can't make use of an API Key, important LinkedIn features like "Recommendations" can't be made available.
The correct way to do this is by using OAuth and calling the LinkedIn API correctly. That will return just what you have asked for.
