Share Article Script Does not work

Hi,

I am not sure this has been answered before, but I am having trouble with the LinkedIn Share article script.

This is the url I have been trying to share:
http://miningoilgasjobs.com.au/Our-Blog/October-2011/Keeping-Australian-Mine-Sites-as-Safe-as-Possible.aspx

I have tried eveything I could:

Use the Share Article query string, for example:
http://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&url=http://www.miningoilgasjobs.com.au/Our-Blog/October-2011/Keeping-Australian-Mine-Sites-as-Safe-as-Possible.aspx

Also,
Manually share the link by login to my LinkedIn account.

Finally, I have also tried to use the LinkedIn share feature from Addthis.com

They all didn't work.

Anyone can please help me with this, or is there something missing on the page itself, i.e. missing some meta tags, etc...

Thank you for your help in advance.

I am also having a problem with the share scripts, but mine seems to be with the Android/iPhone browsers.

I figured my url is messed up, so I did some searching and came across the "Build a Share Button" site. I tried building a button and I get a completely different problem.and I only have a problem. Here is what I tried:

1. I went to the Build a Share Button site ( https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins/share-button ) and created the following code:

1
2
<script src="http://platform.linkedin.com/in.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="IN/Share" data-url="http://www.xmission.com"></script>

2. I placed this code into a simple HTML page.

If I go to the page above in a normal browser, everything works just fine. If I go to the page in a mobile browser on the iPhone (3Gs) and/or Android (default browser, Opera, and Firefox - Tried on HTC Sensation and emulator) it doesn't work. I get the LinkedIn login and then I get an "error" page.

Any ideas? If you need more info let me know.

I am having the exact same issue on our company's website. On desktop clients the button works fine, but on mobile devices (iPhone is our biggest concern) the button stalls once it redirects to this page:

I'm having the same issue - I am trying to set the URL for a custom button on iPhone & Android that displays the LinkedIn share dialog in a web view. They both prompt for login, but on iPhone I get an error and Android the spinner just keeps running.

I'm using this URL prefix: http://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&url=http%3A//www.example.com/&title=This%20is%20an%20Example&source=www.example.com

@Jeremy Johnstone - Looking forward to hearing what you find out - thanks!!

Hi All,

We do not officially support the share plugin / shareArticle method of sharing via mobile devices at this time. We are working to address this, but that is the reason for the broken experience.

Is there any work around so that I can share links on LinkedIn from my mobile app?

Hi Sudarashan,

Since you said mobile "app", is this a native app or a web app?

It is a native app where I have a button called 'LinkedIn Share' on clicking which I should share some text to the LinkedIn?

Hi Curtis,

Our plugins are not officially supported on mobile devices at this time. I apologize, but I do not have an ETA on when this will be solved, so I would suggest you plan accordingly.

I have the same problem, when I click on the linkedin share button that I put on my website, from many mobile phones, it goes to:
http://platform.linkedin.com/js/xdrpc.html?v=0.0.2000-RC1.24082-1403#mode=popup-wait&target=easyXDM_IN_Lib_li_gen_1358378950429_2_provider
a new window opens up and gets stuck there in "processing" and nothing happens...
Please note, that for some people it does work, but for many others it doesn't.
I would appreciate your assistance.

Hi Jeremy - did you ever get this issue resolved? I believe it is a Chrome issue, because my link works fine in Firefox. But, as an fyi, the share link is not working in Chrome. Thanks!
