Hope things are going well. It’s been a while since I have written my last blog post. I am planning to get back into the habit of blogging, so I will share updates in a subsequent blog post. Today, I would like to introduce you all to an awesome plugin for WordPress that lets you showcase your LinkedIn profile and recommendations.
You have the option of embedding your entire profile, or having a Rotating Scroller for recommendations as well as displaying a Contact Card.
I have integrated the three of those components onto this website. Here are the examples.
- The Recommendation Scroller can be found on my home page | http://www.adrianchu.com
- The Full Profile | http://www.adrianchu.com/about/
- The Contact Card | http://www.adrianchu.com/consulting/
I made one modification to the plugin for the Contact Card to show up to the first 500 characters from my LinkedIn profile summary on the Contact Card. You can make that change in the file ‘wp-linkedin/wp-linkedin.php’.
I tried increasing that number to 2,000 at first but it seemed to cause some latency, so I arbitrarily chose 500 characters, since my profile summary isn’t that long anyway. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about doing that.
The plugin is called WP LinkedIn Plugin.
Here is a blog post written by the creator of the plugin. A shout-out to Claude Vedovini for creating this wonderful plugin!
