LinkedIn Page Feed Moderation & Author Picture Boundary Shape

The feed filter does not work for LinkedIn and is a very limited feed moderation tool.
The ideal solution would be check boxed form options to enable/disable (posts, jobs, articles, events, polls) from the feed. Each type has its own category id, so creating a filtering form element for the feed should not be to challenging.

Author picture boundary shape is only circular, this is ok for photos of a persons face, but not good for company logos designed for square viewing. Our logo loses a lot of real-estate making it difficult to even see the icon, never mind almost completely loosing the company name in the logo. Adding the optional square display is an easy option to add for your devs, its simple changing of the CSS.

And please ask the devs to programmatically check for empty posts and remove them from the feed if any of them are empty. Problem is if the feed has been generated and published as a widget and then from LinkedIn’s side one or more of the posts are deleted, the feed pushes out empty posts in the widget. Making the feed look crappy, specially when using the carousel, grid and masonry layouts.

Hey there @Jason_Borejszo and welcome aboard :wave:

Thank you soo much for such a thorough comment, this is huge!

The idea regarding the check boxed form options is really great Also, I agree that it would be awesome to choose the shape of the author picture. We’ll try to consider these functionalities in our future updates.

Now, I’ll talk to our devs and check if it’s possible to change the author picture shape using CSS code. I’ll keep you in the loop.

Also, you’ve mentioned that the filter doesn’t work. Do you mean that the LinkedIn filters are very limited or there is an issue with them?

In case, you’ve encountered an issue with the filters, please describe your use case in more detail and share a direct link to the webpage where your widget is installed (or widget ID if it’s not installed yet).

Here is the code to make the author image square:

[class^='Image__Container-sc'] {
  border-radius: 0;

[class^='Image__Container-sc']:after {
  border-radius: 0;

Check it out and let me know how it worked :slightly_smiling_face:

Page with Feed widget:

As you can see if you follow above link, the job listings and the empty post throw out the layout.

Also, you’ve mentioned that the filter doesn’t work. Do you mean that the LinkedIn filters are very limited or there is an issue with them?

Does not work at all, I tried using the post links with no query strings attached and the whole url to post including the query string and the posts are still displayed. To clarify the “Filter, Specific Post, Exclude Specific Post” option.

Please see above thread message, I edited and saved after you replied and the 3rd paragraph might be missed.

The poll displays as empty and the second job listing does not exist, it was deleted from LinkedIn.

I’ll check this issue with our devs and will get back to you once I receive a response from them :slightly_smiling_face:

I managed to get the 1 job and the poll hidden. Deleted job wont hide, even with correct link.

@Jason_Borejszo Got you!

As for the deleted post displayed in the feed, we’ll investigate it with our dev team. I’ll keep you in the loop :slightly_smiling_face:

The post is removed! Check your widget and let me know if it’s fine :wink:
