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.

Easy to use for a novice
By , for WP 3.8.1

It was easy to get the plugin working and looks good using IE9 and Chrome 33.0.1750.117m on a PC. It does not appear to work on my Android 4.2.2 Galaxy Nexus.

Works just as I would hope.

This worked cleanly and easily! Thanks!

Thank you
By , for WP 3.8

I'm not a developer and it did take me a while to get my head around what I was doing but I got it working how I want it - just showing header and recommendations on my Welcome page.

I initially struggled with getting it to work as a widget in the sidebar and then just realised that all I needed to do was to paste the shortcode into the text section of my Page (and delete any unwanted parts of my linkedin profile by going to SETTINGS/LINKEDIN and deleting them out of that box at the top.

Totally simple once I got it sussed. Thanks so much Claude :)

Just works!

Many errors and warnings
By , for WP 3.7.1

Plugin has many errors and warning and breaks a lot. Uninstalled it as I can only wonder what other issues it has...

version 1.5.5 works better than version 1.6

I can't get the LinkedIn Recommendations to work on version 1.6. I had to use version 1.5.5. But the widget works great in version 1.5.5.

Decent integration with LinkedIn
By ,

Last time I had to fetch LinkedIn data (before the API existed) the only way was fetching the page and stripping the part of the markup that was needed. Not robust and beautiful at all, but luckily WP LinkedIn seems to be able to pull off the data I need (as a profile fields for one page and recommendations slider for another one) which works great.

I'd definitely move more of the Installation content into the general description as it's not quite clear and outlined what does the plugin do when you first load the plugin page.

Works like a charm

This plugin just works! It successfully gets all my info from my Linkedin profile. I'm very happy with the possibility to choose which Linkedin profile language the plugin should choose.

Does the job well, simple, elegant styling
By , for WP 3.4.1

Does exactly what I want - brings in my full LinkedIn profile to show on the about page for a bio/resume page.

Styling is nice and elegant that comes along with it, nice default style that uses a bit of the linkedin feel.

I found some main typography styles from my theme did not cascade into the markup due to lack of using "p" tags within the content for the plugin.
