    I’d like to post a button Follow us on LinkedIn and install a plugin for that to make it work.

    The blog I need help with is studytoursnl.wordpress.com.

    You can’t, as plugins are not allowed on WordPress.com. The good news is that you can simply add a link to LinkedIn in a text widget and put that in your sidebar.

    I tried to copy paste a LinkedIn button via LinkedIn into a text widget. It does appear on my site, but doesnt take me to LinkedIn.
    How do I make this follow me/my company on LinkedIn button work?

    What is the exact code you used? Paste it here between backticks so it shows.

    Note that the Follow Us on LinkedIn code will really only ever work if your profile is public.

    I am trying to do the same thing! But the code gets stripped out as it’s not allowed by Word Press. Does anyone know a work around for this code?

    <script src="//platform.linkedin.com/in.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="IN/FollowCompany" data-id="813080" data-counter="right"></script>

    You can’t use a javascript code on a WordPress.com blog. You CAN use plain HTML code. If LinkedIn no longer provides it, you can just write your own text and link to your profile.

    @nsynergy: I see you managed to do this. Congrats! Can you help me with the plain HTML code? Thanks!
