    Hi, I’m struggling with the input of my company linkedin user name. When I put (what I think is) the correct information in the linkedin box and click the logo, linkedin says there is no company profile with that name, yet I’ve used the same information successfully from a sister site using another theme.

    When I search linkedin, I find this:
    https://www.linkedin.com/company/the-open-information-security-foundation. My assumption is that the info after the last slash is the linkedin username, but it does not work.

    Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for any info!

    The blog I need help with is: oisf.net

    Hi there,

    I’m very confused by this question. Can you show me a screenshot of where you’re trying to enter this information into your site? This doesn’t sound like a theme issue but I want to make sure that I understand you first before moving the thread to General Questions. Thanks so much.

    Cheers,
    Philip

    Sorry about confusion Philip. And yes, it could very well be a linkedin thing, it’s possible I just don’t have the correct information, I have reached out to them also.

    I am entering the info into the social media widget. The widget doesn’t ask for the full url, just the user name, which I thought should be “the-open-information-security-foundation”, the info that appears at the end of the linkedin page url.

    I can send a screen shot — do I send to support@wordpress.com? Or to you?

    Hi there, for LinkedIn, the social media widget supports profiles with this URL structure:

    https://www.linkedin.com/in/username/

    If your URL doesn’t follow this pattern it won’t work in the widget, sorry about that.
