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.

version 1.5.5 works better than version 1.6
By ,

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.

Does not work for 'ordinary' WP users
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin doesn't work as a hands-free plugin.
You need to be a developer registered on the Linkedin Developer site.

This needs to be part of the plugin information.

Works great, but...
By , for WP 3.5

Just tested the plugin.
Works fine as described, but could be expanded:
* should work in widgets (mainly the recommendations rotator)
* should allow profile fields to be selected at the shortcode level, so that multiple shortcodes zith different content can be included.

E.g. :
instead of [li_profile]
use [li_profile fields="skills,specialties,positions"] or [li_profile fields="educations,positions"] and so on...

Thx!
