Company Updates

Please be aware that the plugin is using the WP LinkedIn Advanced Templates to show the updates below. The default template that comes with the WP LinkedIn for Companies extension is more simple and only shows the text of the updates.

  • The 13th Medicines for Europe Legal Affairs Conference in London will be the forum of high level discussions between leading industry executives and experts, counsel and European institution officials on the latest IP legal landscape developments with regard to generic, biosimilar and value added medicines in Europe and worldwide.

      Hello,
      It might be that your company updates are not all actual updates, job postings for example won’t appear in the shortcode unless you specify that you want job postings. However, a few people have had a similar problem, it’s coming from the LinkedIn API itself not from the plugin, you must report the issue on the LinkedIn developers’ forum: https://developer.linkedin.com/forums/rest

    Hi, I have a few questions.
    Can this be used to display the updates from a showcase page as opposed to a company page?
    Can the number of updates shown be controlled?
    Does it show the image from the update or just the text?
    Does it show the whole update or just an extract?
    Is it possible to show just the updates without all that information before it like you have in your demo (description, headquarters, etc)?
    Thanks for your help,

      Hi Charlotte,

      Q. Can this be used to display the updates from a showcase page as opposed to a company page?
      A. Yes, it normally can show Showcase pages, tho I did not tested it, you will need to find the page’s ID (normally in the URL) and use it in place of the Company ID in the shortcodes/widgets.

      Q. Can the number of updates shown be controlled?
      A. You can specify the maximum number of updates to show but the API only returns updates posted in the last 20 days.

      Q. Does it show the image from the update or just the text?
      A. The default template only shows the text and the link (if there’s one) but you can customize it to have the same kind of output as there is on LinkedIn.

      Q. Does it show the whole update or just an extract?
      A. See answer above.

      Q. Is it possible to show just the updates without all that information before it like you have in your demo (description, headquarters, etc)?
      A. That demo page demoes all the shortcodes from the plugin. Each section is output by a different shortcode. Only use the updates shortcode if you only want to display updates.

      Are you using the [li_company_products]? If yes, then may be you’re right and it’s not working anymore. May be you should transition to a showcase page for your products. In that case you can use the [li_company_profile] with the ID of the showcase page and it should work. The same goes for updates.

        Thanks for your reply!
        Do you mean that you use [li_company_profile] with the ID for each showcase separately? Don’t you know if there is a method to receive the all company’s showcase pages IDs via API if I am an admin of that company?

          Yes, one shortcode for each showcase page. I don’t know if there’s a method to get showcase pages that you administer, you will have to check the LinkedIn documentation for that.

      You need to customize the templates to do that kind of things. Create a ‘linkedin’ folder under the ‘wp-content’ folder then copy the templates you want to modify from the plugin’s ‘templates’ folder then customize them.

    Can you provide an example of what is shown using the [li_company_updates] shortcode? I’m very interested in the product, but need to see that it will show what we are looking for before purchasing.

      I had to update that page to show updates for one of my pages but you can see now how it’s displayed by default. However, the template is fully customizable, you can pretty much do anything you want.

    Hi Claude,

    Is the API still limit the Company Updates to only the last 20 days?
    Is the shortcode working for widget? As I need to place the company updates on the sidebar, something like a twitter feeds style.

      There are still limitations. You can see the details here: https://developer.linkedin.com/docs/company-pages#company_updates

      Only the most recent 50 updates for events of type status-update will be returned. For all other event types, the request will return all the updates within the past 20 days, or 250 total updates – whichever comes first.

      And if you want to place the company updates feed in a sidebar you don’t need to use the shortcode, just use the widget.

        Got it.
        Is the plugin compatible with WordPress 3.5.1?
        Is the widget comes with styling options or colors? Or option to adjust width etc.

          it should be compatible with 3.5 and up, yes.
          there’s no option to adjust anything related to styling on the widget. The size adjust relative to the container. For the rest you use CSS or you customize the template that renders the updates

      The default template doesn’t show that information. However, if the information is returned by the API (which is difficult to say à priori because the documentation is lacking) then you can customize the template to show it.
