LinkedIn Authorization (Login/Registration) A Must

Hey,

I'm looking at IPB but would require LinkedIn Authorization for accounts to work alongside Facebook and Twitter. It appears this is not part of IPB at the moment so I'd need to get a plugin. How much would it be likely to cost and how long would it take for a plugin like this to be created?

Cheers,
Jack Clarke

Thanks that's just what I was after - I couldn't find a list of developers anywhere and obviously I just wasn't looking in the right place.

This feature has been requested since the 26th of June 2011 source: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/340338-linkedin-connect/page__hl__linkedin. Whilst I understand that that IPS cannot incorporate every social network, could you perhaps explain to me why there are login methods for facebook and twitter, and not for lInkedin? Considering that the aforementioned social networks constitute of different but significant demographics that populate each social network?

Thank you for your input.

We base our software decisions largely on feedback from the community. Demand for a "LinkedIn" login method has been extremely low, thus we have not put our development resources into it to date. On the other hand, demand for Facebook and Twitter login methods was very high, and as such we implemented them.

That is a logical explanation, thank you for your reply.

I'd love a Linked In integration feature!

Kind regards,
