Feature proposal #6685closed
Rewrite profile URL API
Redesign profile URL API to a part of the individual provider classes with the current usage being a part of the main provider class. This will allow providers to override how profile URLs are constructed and allow for API requests to be made to construct the URLs.
Subject: LinkedIn profile url no longer works
Description: Appears LinkedIn uses application specific profile ids now like Facebook. This causes the profile url to fail as it's expecting their actual LinkedIn ID. Review API to see if new URL is possible or if, unfortunately, an HTTP request is necessary to obtain the URL.
