I was doing some work on a client website the other day, when the OAuth login code I was using to provide “log in via linkedin” support inexplicably stopped working. It would seem that linkedin had a (temporary) problem with their OAuth1 api.
A quick google, and I found that LinkedIn’s OAuth 1 api has been superseded, and I feared that it had finally been switched off. Since there was no word from LinkedIn, and I needed to get functionality working for my client, I rewrote the connector.
This plugin provides “Login via LinkedIn” functionality to Elgg 1.8, enjoy!
