  • Add this plugin to a List

    You need to be logged in to add this plugin to your list.

    WP LinkedIn

    Add to List

    ATTENTION: following breaking changes in the LinkedIn API this plugin won’t be functional anymore after March 1st. More information here

    This plugin provides you with shortcodes to insert your LinkedIn profile and a rotating scroller of your LinkedIn recommendations in any WordPress page or post.

    Please check for examples.

    The following shortcodes are available:

    • [li_recommendations width="480" length="200" interval="1000"] displays a rotating scroller with the recommendations you received. Only available if LinkedIn granted you access to your full profile.
    • [li_profile] displays your LinkedIn profile. Optional attributes are fields and lang to overide the general settings. Only basic profile is available unless LinkedIn granted you access to your full profile.
    • [li_card] displays a simple LinkedIn card. Optional attributes are picture_width and summary_length, and fields and lang to overide the general settings.
    • [li_picture] displays the original profile picture (size may vary depending on what you uploaded to LinkedIn). Optional attributes are width, height and class.
    • [li_profile_field] outputs one field from the profile. This shortcode uses the “field” attribute to indicate the path to the target field. For example [li_profile_field field="first-name"] will output the profile’s first name and [li_profile_field field="location:name"] will output the name of the profile’s location.

    To customize the rendering of the shortcodes you must create a linkedin folder in your theme or in the wp-content folder and then copy the template file you want to modify. The default template files are located in the plugin’s templates folder.

    You can override the [li_profile] shortcode’s template by specifying the template code enclosed in the shortcode itself, for example [li_profile]Hello M. {last-name}, how's your work at {positions:values:0:company:name}?[/li_profile] will render something like Hello M. Smith, how's your work at ACME Company?.

    See this post for more details on customization: Showing more of your LinkedIn profile with WP LinkedIn

    There are also several widgets. One widget displays the recommendations scroller, one displays your network updates, and two widgets show a “profile card” – one of which is the standard LinkedIn JavaScript profile widget, the other uses a customizable template.

    We welcome volunteers to translate that plugin into more languages. If you wish to help then contact @cvedovini on Twitter or use that contact form.

    Please check the WP LinkedIn Multi-Users extension if you need to show the profiles of multiple users.

    And if you need to show company profiles or company updates, please check the WP LinkedIn for Companies extension.

    Also available is the WP LinkedIn Advanced Templates extension that provides extended profile templates (including most of the profile sections) and a more sophisticated template for company page updates.

    And if you want to save money then there’s the WP LinkedIn Extensions Bundle which includes all the extensions for a reduced price.
