JLinked v1.1 Released - Enhanced Profile Integration, Open Graph and more!

 JLinked - LinkedIn for Joomla v1.1JLinked v1.1 is now available. This is the first big release of the best LinkedIn for Joomla extension since it's launch, just 3 months ago. The new version focuses on improvements to both the profile import system and social sharing capabilities that integrating your site with LinkedIn allows.

The initial release of JLinked was feature packed, leveraging our years of Facebook integration experience. However, with any first release, there are areas that could use some more work. Our user's told us, and v1.1 fills in those holes.

LinkedIn is an amazing way to learn more about your users without requiring huge registration forms to get that information. The new version of JLinked greatly enhances the registration flow and provides even more flexibility when integrating with any of the 3rd party profile systems JLinked integrates with: JomSocial, Community Builder, Kunena, K2 and Agora. New profile features allow you (the administrator) to:

  • Set which fields are shown during registration with more flexibility
  • Show fields pre-populated with information from the user's LinkedIn profile, allowing them to make changes if they want different information for your site
  • Updated field-list of available information that you can import from LinkedIn to your site
  • Multiple enhancements and fixes for all of the profile plugins for speed, compatibility, and features

In addition, JLinked now fully supports the Open Graph tagging system. With Open Graph tags, you can easily specify the title, description and image that should be used for each page of your site when a user Shares your content on LinkedIn. Even better, the same tags are used for the Facebook Like button, which can also easily be inserted into your content using JLinked.

While those are the major changes for this release, it's just the tip of the iceberg as far as new features and fixes you'll find through. For more information, see the full JLinked v1.1 Changelog.
