Pull Linkedin profile pic for use elsewhere on site?

Pull Linkedin profile pic for use elsewhere on site?

The Linkedin profile pic appears on the login module but can we display this anywhere else, like on a user profile page?

I'm using CB 1.9.

Thanks

Re: Pull Linkedin profile pic for use elsewhere on site?

If you enable Social Profiles - Community Builder plugin, you can configure how the user's information is imported into CB. From there, CB can display the avatar wherever you'd like and should work just like any other Joomla user.

I hope that helps, but if not, let me know.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: Pull Linkedin profile pic for use elsewhere on site?

I've installed the plugin but there's no configuration options in the plugin or CB.

It's the plugin titled 'plg_jlinkedprofiles_communitybuilder_j1.5_v1.3.0' and I'm on J2.5.

Any suggestions?

Once enabled, the settings for our plugins will show up in the JLinked -> Profiles configuration area. Please go there to configure how the user's profile is imported into Community Builder.

I hope that helps,
Alex

Only the K2 profile settings are shown and the CB plugin is listed as not installed, even though it is.

I'm sure I've missed a step or an install somewhere.

Are you seeing a tab named "communitybuilder", or is there no tab at all? If there is a tab, can you tell me what message is shown inside it? That will narrow things down.

In general, the Social Profiles - Community Builder plugin must be published for the tab to show. Once the tab is there, the plugin will check to see if Community Builder is installed and detected. If not, you'll see a message saying that CB isn't detected.

Let me know if that helps,
Alex

There's no communitybuilder tab, only the K2 tab

CB is installed and working correctly.

Do want a login to see yourself?

I've uninstalled it and reinstalled and the CB tab is now showing but the avatars are not coming across from Linkedin.

Logins details sent in a PM.

Re: Pull Linkedin profile pic for use elsewhere on site?

Very sorry for the delayed response. I had a chance to get in and test on your site. The reason you were having issues is because CB is setup with some Required fields that weren't being pulled into or filled out by the user during registration. I changed the setting in the JLinked -> Profiles area for "Show Profile Fields:" to "Required Only". That showed the required fields that I had to enter on registration, and allowed CB to properly save the user. Without those fields, since they were required, CB was rejecting the user.

Please test again and let me know if you run into any other issues, but hopefully you're good to go from here.

Thanks,
Alex

Thanks but I'm getting this error now:

JLinked API Error: HTTP response from LinkedIn end-point was not code 200 ({)
From:https://api.linkedin.com/v1/people/~:(picture-url,public-profile-url)

I thought it might have been because it has basic auth on but i've disabled that and it still shows the error.

Re: Pull Linkedin profile pic for use elsewhere on site?

When are you getting that message? Is it during initial registration with LinkedIn or on a returning login visit? Also, is the avatar being pulled in properly? If so, it may just be an odd error message we need to look at... in which case, you can disable the "Show LinkedIn API Errors on Front-end" setting to hide that message for now.

To note, I just tried logging in, and I didn't get that message. My avatar did look to be updated though.

Thanks,
Alex
