FB Linkedin Resume

FB Linkedin Resume is a WordPress plugin that allows you to publish all your LinkedIn public profile (or just some selected parts) on your blog.

It also supports custom language and translations.



The home page of my professional Italian website is 90% done with FB Linkedin Resume.


This plugin uses a new way of processing your LinkedIn profile to extract all
the information you need to publish on your blog.
Using HTML DOM parsing we avoid all the possible bugs and malfunctions due to
regular expression parsing, this way we’re way more sure that our plugin is
absolutely resistant to all the LinkedIn HTML changes that could occur in
the future.

It also outputs the LinkedIn HTML parts instead of creating new HTML, this way
we’re sure that it supports and will support all possible LinkedIn options
for every part of your profile.

It features two ways of usage:

1. Just print out the whole profile without customizations.
2. Extract single parts of your profile and print each one where you want.

Supported shortcodes

  • fb_linkedin_resume_full: prints all your LinkedIn public profile.
  • fb_linkedin_resume_header: prints the upper badge.
  • fb_linkedin_resume_summary: prints the “summary” section.
  • fb_linkedin_resume_experience: prints the “experience” section.
  • fb_linkedin_resume_certifications: prints the “certifications” section.
  • fb_linkedin_resume_skills: prints the “certifications” section.
  • fb_linkedin_resume_languages: prints the “languages” section.
  • fb_linkedin_resume_education: prints the “education” section.
  • fb_linkedin_resume_additional: prints the “additional” section.

Every shortcode accept a “lang” parameter that will allow you to override default profile language (also if set in the plugin options).

Every shortcode (except the “full” one) accept a “title” parameter that will allow you to customize the section title (translating it or changing it the way you want). Eg: [fb_linkedin_resume_experience title=”Esperienze lavorative”].

The “additional” shortcode supports more parameters (title, title_interests, title_honors), eg: [fb_linkedin_resume_additional title=”Informazioni aggiuntive” title_interests=”Interessi” title_honors=”Premi e riconoscimenti”].

    @Alexander: what do you mean for greyed out? did you disable the plugin now on your live website? Do you have an error message to help me debug?

  2. Alexander

    Yes I turned it off for now. When I turn it on I get a grey screen.

    This reinstall thing is very very weird and actually I don’t think I can control it in anyway.
    I just solved the “notice” issue and I’m thinking how to work on the cache one…

    I have the same problem. I can’t access to the administration page anymore, even to stop the plug-in…

  5. Dan

    Hi, I have a /pub Linkedin account, not /in and can’t seem to get your WP plugin to accept/find my profile. Any ideas?



  6. Fabrizio Balliano Post author

    @nasier: did you upgrade or sth? i’m on wordpress 3.9 without any problems, plus you should anyway be able to deactivate it from the plugins page, which is not managed by the plugin itself but by wordpress. i think you’ve some other kind of problem on your wordpress, possible?

    I was using your plugin and It was great on my about me page !!
    Thank you !

    It works great but suddenly the other day after the wordpress auto update nothing appears anymore.

    is it a Linkedin limitation ?
    What can I do ?
    WP 4.2.2

    Any tips to fix it ?

    Thank you for your help

  9. Julien

    I instal,uninstal activate and desactivate the plugin…

    Sometime it work, sometimes not.
    is there a Linkedin limitation because after a few reload the resume doesn’t appears anymore

  10. Julien

    Hi thank your for your answer,…

    Already read, already try.
    still looking fot the (check the other FAQs to know how)

    Try to create cache file, or copy the whole html page.
    That’s too bad that linkedin create these limitations,.. your plugin was great !!!

    By creating a Linkedin application and generate access token you can’t erase these limitations ?

  11. Fabrizio Balliano Post author

    if you just go to your linkedin public profile (without being logged in) and copy the html source code, it should be fine.
    other that this problem, the plugin works fine… but ye, that’s a huge limitation…

    for your other question, no, it won’t solve because of the API change LinkedIn deployed in the last days (destroying another of my projects), check these 2 posts if you’ve time:

    I been using your awesome FB Linkedin plugin for a while now, but lately it is not matching my Linkedin profile. It seems to show a version of my Linkedin profile that is at least a couple of years old.

    What am I doing wrong?


  13. Fabrizio Balliano Post author

    Hi Robert, sorry but I think that plugin it’s not usable since a while, LinkedIn has implemented a lot of checks on IP addresses and it’s not almost absolutely impossible to scrape out the profile. You should be able to use it (but I haven’t checked it since a lot) if you manually copy/paste your LinkedIn profile’s HTML into the “cache” of the plugin itself.
