Embedding a LInkedIn Badge

Recommended Posts

Hi Folx,

Having some trouble with a relatively simple process: Embedding a LinkedIn Badge into a dedicated page on our SS site. (The page is called LinkedIn on the top navigation bar.)

The code for embedding the Badge is simple enough to generate from your LI page. Here is ours. 

<script src="https://platform.linkedin.com/badges/js/profile.js" async defer type="text/javascript"></script>

<div class="badge-base LI-profile-badge" data-locale="en_US" data-size="large" data-theme="light" data-type="HORIZONTAL" data-vanity="cubela" data-version="v1"><a class="badge-base__link LI-simple-link" href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/cubela?trk=profile-badge">Rafael Cubela</a></div>

I embedded the HTML <div> by using the Page Builder>Edit>"+">Code block. Copy/paste/save; no issue. The hyper link behind the name "Rafeal Cublea"  that then appears on the screen then works fine.

The issue: The Badge itself will only appear if the <script> is placed in both in Settings>Advanced>Page Header Code Injection block and the Page Builder>Edit>"+">Code block. (In the latter, I changed the Mode to Javascript, pasted the Script, and saved.)  But here is the catch: the line of <script> code appears on the screen below the LI Badge. If either of the Script blocks are deleted, the Badge disappears.

Notes: When using Inspect Element tool, the Script, as placed only in the Settings>Advanced>Page Header Code Injection block, can be found at the bottom of the HTML, just before the </body> tag where I would expect it to be. 

Frustrating, but when I tried to reproduce the situation described above (after deleting all code) the LI Badge will no longer appear. 

Any ideas?

Thank you!
