Just what I was looking for
By , for WP 4.1

Thank you -- I wish all plugins were this easy and thoroughly developed. I was looking for a way to feed my LinkedIn updates into my professional blog at and this widget provided that ability and more. I had a little trouble with the API key which your instructions correctly identified as a server time issue. After that it was smooth sailing to install and configure the widgets. My wishlist would include the ability to configure the network updates more, but that can wait. Thank you very much.

Exactly what I wanted!
By , for WP 3.8.2

This profile plugin is so much better than the native one provided by Linkedin. I was extremely happy when the default profile image not only fit my sidebar layout better, but the default card color was a bit darker than the bright white in the default. The ability to define what elements of the Linkedin profile are displayed is instrumental.

Additionally, when I couldn't make the plugin work (because of existing misconfiguration), the developer provided an immediate response. Considering this is a free plugin, I couldn't ask for more. I would recommend the commercial versions of this plugin to anyone wishing to link their Company profile to WordPress! A+

FYI - In case anyone else has trouble, here's what I had wrong:

1) Apache did not have write access to .htaccess (because I must have been lazy when I moved the site and used the GUI instead of the shell)
2) I did not have custom permalinks on (required for mod_rewrite to be turned on)

Good but clashes with jQuery UI Tabs
By , for WP 4.1

This is a very useful plugin but it has a serious flaw. The code draws upon jquery.tools which includes a tabs function. Any attempt to use WP LinkedIn with jQuery Tabs will fail due to this conflict. To make matters worse, it appears that jquery.tools is no longer supported. It's website has disappeared and I had to de-minify a dev version of the code in order to hunt down and fix this problem. The solution is to change the line d.fn.tabs to d.fn.xtabs which resolves the conflict.

Easy to Install, Needs to be responsive
By , for WP 4.0.1

This was quick and easy to install, and with a little updating of the CSS (very particular to how things look on my site), I had my LinkedIn full profile showing on my resume page perfectly.

My only suggestion would be with the scrolling recommendation short code. I wanted to have them span the entire width of the DIV they were placed in, but, when set to 100%, they were over 30,000 pixels wide. Setting a width based on pixels does not work when your site is responsive. For now, I just removed this function.

It does not work on WP multisite
By , for WP 4.0

I have been trying all possible configurations but it does not work on a WP MU. Just keep in mind before installing.

I receive a message "Your LinkedIn access token is invalid or has expired, please click here to get a new one." but I keep on creating tokens... trying with all codes shown there (token, secret, etc.) - not much clear what to use because there is no full corresponsance between the plugin config page and the LinkedIn API page.

It would be good to write it clearly in the descpription that this plugin is not supposed for WP multisite to avoid wasting time.

That's a pity because the plugin seems great for single blogs and other comments confirm it.

Ideal para mostrar algo mas que un enlace a tu página de Linkedin
By , for WP 4.0

Perfecto para integrar en tu página basada en wordpress tu perfil profesional de Linkedin.

Aunque pueda parecer un poco complicado lo de la API y así de Linkedin que necesita este plugin las instrucciones te permiten hacerlo fácilmente.

Por cierto, este plugin hace que según la ley europea de cookies haya que avisar de que tu página web contiene cookies de Linkedin.

Works, nicely rendered, simple for a newbie.

Got what I wanted!
Needed to do some CSS work for my install, but plugin is easy enough to decipher. Thanks for this!

Does what it says, saves work
By , for WP 3.9

Keeps me from having to keep two separate work histories up to date, provides the LinkedIn profile directly on my website.

nice plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

It's easy to use. Most of the linkedin profile data can be shown by using this plugin, except the personal projects.
