Unfortunately, we don't have that ability in JLinked yet. We will be adding that in the upcoming v2.0 release, due out in February. That will make the login button much more flexible, which we realize is important.
Hope that helps explain,
My link like this:
seems to work. Although the authorisation page does not load in a modal window as presumably was intended. Grateful for your advice. (http://profr.me)
Also, profile fields are not imported. JLinked is telling me I have no profile plugins activated, but I have the the social profiles 5.0 for jomsocial installed. Any advice?
The login page will not load in a modal. It's a redirect to LinkedIn and you can't load it in a popup on the site. LinkedIn's terms of service specifically require that the URL be shown in the address bar when the user is logging in so that they can verify they are actually logging into Linkedin and not being 'tricked' to giving their credentials.
As for the profile plugins, just to make sure:
* You upgraded to JLinked v2.0
* You re-installed the new Social Profile plugin for JomSocial (there used to be a separate JLinkedProfile plugin which is not used anymore)
* Since you're using JFBConnect, can you check that the JomSocial profile plugin shows up as enabled there.. assuming you have upgraded to JFBConnect v5.0.0
Hi, I just subscribed to this wonderful component and I too looking for a customization login image just like jfb. I am using the lastest jlink version 2.0. Any tips/guide would be very appreciated.
Sorry for the delay. David's suggestion is the proper way to use your own custom image for the login button. You can use any size image you want.
When done, the code looks like the below. Please make sure that you replace the image link path with the actual path for your image:
Should you need anything else, just let us know.
I got it working, thanks. One more question, I am not familiar with this component yet but I am wondering if this is a normal behavior of the this component. When a user click on the login module, it takes you to linkin site for authorization, then back to my site for a normal registration without pulling the info of the users.. I thought it would act the same way as facebook does without registration of any kind
Yes, that's normal for now. We are planning to have the automatic registration ability available in the 2.1 release, which should be out in 1-2 months.
Hope that helps answer your question,
Sorry for the delay in getting back to this. It's definitely falling into the '2 month' category from my 1-2 months comment above. The plan is to have v2.1 out in mid/late May. That release will definitely have the 1-click registration, but we're still trying to work out some kinks as far as the profile import, which LinkedIn states must be 'known' to the user.
Hope that answers your question, but if you have any others, just let us know.
