Add a LinkedIn Post to a Page

Create or open an existing app.
Click the  Edit Pencil on a Page.
Click the  Green + Icon, located in the bottom right corner.
Either scroll to LinkedIn Post in the list or begin typing LinkedIn Post to search the list. 
Select LinkedIn Post. The LinkedIn Post Component will appear at the bottom of the Content list in the left-hand column. The LinkedIn Post Properties will appear in the right-hand column.

LinkedIn Post Properties

The LinkedIn Post Component has the following properties:

  • Component Id - Sets the name of the LinkedIn Post component in the app. The Component Id can be referenced using JavaScript to add more functionality to the app as needed.

    Pro Tip: It is a best practice to use only letters without spaces for the Component Id. Symbols, spaces, and numbers are not recommended.
  • LinkedIn Post Embed URL - Enter the LinkedIn Post's embed URL as it appears in the Embed Code. LinkedIn does not provide embed urls for Shared posts.
    • Click the three dots in the top right corner of the posts, then click on Embed this.

    • Copy the post's URL as it appears within the quotation marks.

  • Component Height (px) - Sets the max height of the LinkedIn Post Component in pixels. The height of the LinkedIn Post Component will be dynamic depending on the post's content.

LinkedIn Post Placement Settings

The Placement Settings for the Component sets which column(s) the Component will appear. Each Page of the app can have a different number of columns that are set in the Layout section of the Page Settings. The following Placement settings are available for this Component:

  • Column Start - Sets the column where the Component will start. 
  • Column Span - Sets how many columns the Component will span. 
  • Pro Tip: The LinkedIn Post Component will appear best on mobile devices when it is set to span all columns of a page. Placing multiple LinkedIn Post Components next to one another can cause them to overlap on smaller screen sizes.
  • Padding - Sets how much space will appear on the top, bottom, left, and right of the Component. When building a Page with multiple Components, the Padding will determine the overall spacing between Components.
  • Display Mode - Sets how the Component is displayed. If Both is selected, the Component will always show. Both are the default option. If Optimal is selected, the Component will only show if the browser supports the app. The main supported browsers are Chrome and Safari. If Degraded is selected, the Component will only show if the browser does not support the app. The main unsupported browser is Internet Explorer.
