How to get profile url or company url for your Linkedin profile?
For profile widget/module setting you need to put your public profile URL:
Login to your Linkedin, From main menu Profile->View Profile
Now the url mentioned as “Public Profile”
Click here to check the screenshot
To get your company Name or ID:
After login or from home page, go from Companies->Your Company
Or any company you follow
Click this here to see screenshot how to get the company name
Again if you are advance user and own the company profile in linkedin then Click the admin tools in company profile page and then mouse hover on delete, see the status bar for your exact company id.
Again you can go here, Type your company name , example “Codeboxr”, hit enter, click “Get Code”, See the value in data-id , For Codeboxr it will show “2282648″

Short Code Usages:

Suppose need to show Company profile widget, here the shortcode
{cblinkedin widgettype=CompanyProfile dataidcp=2282648}
cblinkedin = shortcode for linkedin widget, mendatory

widgettype = widgettype, default value is “MemberProfile” for member profile, more available “CompanyInsider” for company insider and “CompanyProfile” for company profile.

Let’s see widget specific parameters settings:

Member Profile :

{cblinkedin widgettype=MemberProfile dataidmp= showrelatedmp=0 jsaddmethod=1}

dataidmp = member profile url, example:
showrelatedmp = show related or not, value 0 or 1 , default 1, optional, can be set from plugin setting
jsaddmethod = javascript add method, sync or async. optional, can be set from plugin setting.

One more short example: {cblinkedin widgettype=MemberProfile dataidmp=}

Company Insider :

{cblinkedin widgettype=CompanyInsider dataidci=2282648 innetworkci=0 newhiresci=0 jobchangesci=0 jsaddmethod=1}

dataidci = company id, see above about how to grab company id
innetworkci = show in network, 0 or 1, default 1, optional
newhiresci = show new hire, 0 or 1, default 1, optional
jobchangesci = show job changes , 0 or 1, default 1, optional

Short example: {cblinkedin widgettype=CompanyInsider dataidci=2282648}. Also some default setting can be set from the plugin setting page in admin

CompanyProfile :

{cblinkedin widgettype=CompanyProfile dataidcp=2282648 showrelatedcp=0}
dataidcp = company id, check above about how to grab company id
showrelatedcp = show related connections, 0 or 1, default 1, optional
More short example: {cblinkedin widgettype=CompanyProfile dataidcp=2282648}
