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.
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)
Thanks for the great plugin!
Keeps me from having to keep two separate work histories up to date, provides the LinkedIn profile directly on my website.
This worked cleanly and easily! Thanks!
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 :)
Compatible with WP 3.8 and looks great out of the box! Thank you!!!

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.
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.
