Item11098: Update LinkedInPlugin to use revised api. Prior api no longer works.
Current State: Closed
Released In: n/a
Target Release: n/a
Apparently, LinkedIn has changed their api for displaying user profiles on sites. Their page on Profile Widget
says that it will no longer be supported and refers to Member Profile plugin
After looking into the LinkedInPlugin
structure, I found the LinkedinTemplate topic and experimented revising the
template definition as follows:
<script type="IN/MemberProfile" data-id="%URL%" data-format="inline"></script>
Seems to have worked but I notice that it doesn't use the =%TYPE% macro used in the original format. I don't know if this matters. I thought I'd wait to get feedback from plugin author before committing any changes.

gads, what a horrid change they made to the API.
oh well, updated (data-format == =%TYPE% though they've also changed the type names.)
