How to link LindedIn to user profile?

I tried to include a link to my LinkedIn public page as part of my profile but couldn't get it to work. My linked in public profile is: www.linkedin.com/pub/gustavo-heredia/27/13a/a45
Does anyone know how to do this?

Re: How to link LindedIn to user profile?

Yes, the trick is to only include the part of the URL that links to your profile as this forum software automatically adds "linkedin.com/in/".

So in your case it would probably be "gustavo-heredia" or "gustavo-heradia/27/13a/a45" only. Could you please try it this way? Thx.

Edit: you may need to customize your public profile URL first which can be done on this page www.linkedin.com/profile/public-profile-settings - Kunena (our forum software) only seems to work correctly with such a vanity url. Please let us know if this helped!

I had to customize my linkedin profile url first as you suggested. Then it worked. Thank you!
