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”].

    It appears that linkedin has moved the ‘Honors and Awards’ section out of the ‘Additional Information’ area in the profile. Will this plugin be able to accommodate those changes?

  4. Steve D

    Thanks for the quick response! My Linkedin profile is at http://www.linkedin.com/in/steadwell where you can see that the Honors and Awards are in a separate region instead of in the Additional Information section at the bottom. Perhaps it was something related to my last update to my profile – I’ll continue to look into it from my end.

    BTW, your plugin is great!

    Hi Fabrizio, thank you for your plug in it is great. However it only displays my most recent expertise and not all of it.
    Do you know why?


  6. Fabio Pandiscia

    Ciao Fabrizio, intanto complimenti per il lavoro fatto (lo sto testando su WordPress 3.5.1 e sembra non ci siano intoppi)!!
    Anche io ho lo stesso problema di Steve D solo che è relativo alla sezione “segnalazioni” che appare sul profilo completo (http://www.linkedin.com/in/pandiscia). Mi piacerebbe evidenziarle sul sito che sto preparando, ma sembra che attualmente non sia possibile farlo tramite il tuo plugin…spero riuscirai a risolverlo!
    Grazie e buon lavoro :-)

    hey, cool fb linked plugin..

    little bug:

    file fb-linkedin-resume/fb-linkedin-resume.php

    has a line for “websites” in additional info, where linkedin is supplying a prefix slash and your code has a trailing slash, so the double slash breaks the website links after parsed

    foreach ($additional->find(“dd.websites a”) as $link) {
    $link->href = “http://www.linkedin.com/{$link->href}”;

    should be changed to

    foreach ($additional->find(“dd.websites a”) as $link) {
    $link->href = “http://www.linkedin.com{$link->href}”;

    @Fabio Pandiscia: grazie :) purtroppo le segnalazioni sono accessibili solo via API ma al momento non è lo scopo del plugin supportare l’autenticazione linkedin e le API, ma semplicemente esportare le info pubbliche e riproporle uguali su un sito wordpress.

  9. Sigvard Bore

    @Fabrizio – thanks, I got it working after some digging around, but then after trying to add a 4th page linked to another user, I now keep getting this message across ALL the pages (even the ones that were working initially):
    FB Linkedin Resume: unable to connect to LinkedIn website connect() timed out!

  10. Sigvard Bore

    And now it seems to be working again (despite making no changes, and the fact that LinkedIn was always directly accessible).
    Here is a sample of what the pages look like:

    And the syntax we are using for each page that isn’t mine (which is setup directly in the settings):
    [fb_linkedin_resume_full user=http://www.linkedin.com/pub/helen-rosen/3/421/85/]

    When using the fb_linkedin_resume_projects tag the redirects don’t seem to work correctly.

    On my wordpress site the links put my domain in instead of using linkedin which breaks the redirects coming off of linkedin


    as opposed to this on linkedin:


    Am I missing something in the configuration, or is this a defect?

  13. Ryan

    The point is that the first link which comes from the fb_linkedin_resume plugin redirect relative to my site which gives a 404 error due to not having a redirect script that is native to the linkedin site.

    What about a small parameter for the “Recommendations”? I have a few recommendations on my LinkedIn page and would love to include them in either a widget or a separate place. Possibility?

  15. nomadone

    Hi There. It appears your plugin no longer functions with latest version of wp, could you confirm if you have received any other reports like that?

  16. Paul

    Hey Fabrizio,

    Looks like a beautiful plug-in, but my url is http://au.linkedin.com/pub/paul-slowey/1/8b8/1a/

    …and as you have already filled in the first part of the first part of the URL differently in your plug-in settings, nothing will work. What do I need to do to make this work with LinkedIn as I use it?

    Looking forward to getting this working.

    May thanks,

    I seem to be having similar issues to @nomadone. My WP page with your plugin is here: http://fromthetrench.es/vita/. My LinkedIn profile is here: http://www.linkedin.com/in/wigsie

    I don’t get any errors in the console. I hadn’t made any changes whatsoever to my WP site, but it stopped working all of a sudden. I just upgraded to the latest version of your LinkedIn plugin today in an attempt to fix the issue, but no luck. I also uninstalled the plugin completely and then resinstalled it. Again, no luck.

    Seems like there is a communications issue with LinkedIn. Wondering if LinkedIn has changed something on their end?

    I’m on WP 3.4.1.

    Ciao Fabrizio. Sono sudafricano quindi devi scusare i miei poveri italiani. Ho installato il tuo FB Linkedin Resume plug-in sul ​​mio sito e sarebbe lavorare su-e-off.

    Quando non funziona, mi dà il seguente errore:
    Warning: gzinflate() [function.gzinflate]: data error in …/fb-linkedin-resume.php on line 111
    FB Linkedin Resume: we’re sorry but we can’t correctly download your LinkedIn profile.

    Si prega di aiutare.

    I’m having same problem as wigsie.

    On my site warsam.com, if you go to the resume page, there is an error of a failure to connect to linkedIn. This was working as recently as a few days ago. There’s nothing I changed on my end.

    Any help is appreciated!

  21. Aaron

    I’m getting an error message…running the latest version of wordpress and the plugin. Any ideas?

    It’s a fantastic plugin!

  22. Fabrizio Balliano Post author

    hi guys, is it possible that linkedin changed your profile url? I think you’re getting a redirect instead of the profile, so the plugin can’t parse anything, could you check and maybe fill your full profile url in the shortcodes?

  23. rich

    Hi – I’ve found this to be a really useful plugin for my personal website. Unfortunately it seems to have stopped working though. I’ve tried adding my full profile URL in the plugin settings page, but this hasn’t helped. Any suggestions?

  24. Fabrizio Balliano Post author

    I’m sorry but it’s something I cannot reproduce, if someone could give me ftp access on a test installation to debug I could try to fix but again, on my installations the problem it’s never happening :-(

  25. Paul

    Hey Fabrizio,

    I’ve contacted you and the theme developer heaps about the crap implementation of FB LinkedIn that makes it format poorly and run off the page. So far no one takes responsibility for it looking so tragic. Can you please let me know what needs to be done to make it work properly. Obviously I am held ransom until it is fixed so let me know if there is a cost associated with the work. I really need to get this working as I have been ashamed of this page for the many months it has looked so bad.



  26. Rene Vrielink

    Hi Fabrizio,

    We are using your plugin since November 2013. Now we noticed that it is not working anymore. The error is.

    FB Linkedin Resume: we’re sorry but we can’t correctly download your LinkedIn profile.

    We’ve updated to the latest version 2.8.1 but that did not solve the problem.

    WordPress version is 3.5.1

    Pls advice.



  27. Fabrizio Balliano Post author

    @Rene: some users have this problem but i wasn’t able to reproduce it in any way, you can copy/paste the html source code of your linkedin profile (public url, not logged) in the plugin’ setting page, the problem will be gone for sure (i hope ;))

  28. User

    The plugin works sometimes and others not. It worked yesterday morning and then it shows “FB Linkedin Resume: we’re sorry but we can’t correctly download your LinkedIn profile.” I put the URL directly in the code this morning and it worked again. Now it doesn’t work anymore.

    I’m wondering whether the problem is not coming from a too long time for the loading ; if the website is slow, it stops and display the error.

  29. User

    When I refresh the webpage it works about 9 out of 10 ; but sometimes it doesn’t work. I’have just tested that in a fiew seconds. So I think this a (time-) loading problem and a code problem.

  30. Chad

    I update my awards on LinkedIn but the website page using the shortcode hasn’t refreshed/updated. Is there a way to force this to update?

  31. Andrew

    Thanks for the great work.

    Just wondering if there was a way to incorporate the Volunteer Experience section.

  32. Carolina

    Congrats!!!!! Finally, someone purposes something different with linkedin! Wonderful plugin! I have a question: can i use the plugin with more than a profile? I’m developing a website for a company, and partners wnat to show their profile, skills, etc. So, I’d be needing to use the plugin for two profile members and a company profile (total, 3 profiles). Could be this possible? Thanx a lot!
