LinkedIn social sharer not working


I have a problem with the LinkedIn sharer.

Facebook, Twitter and Email works fine. Only LinkedIn shows a blanc popup.

Tried to adjust the title with Yoast SEO but nothing seem to work

Hi Ruenel,

Thx for your reply. I tried to shorten the url but still the same problem. It occurs on more posts.

Hi Marcus,

It seems that the URL is too long to share in the Linkedin whereas in other cases it is not too long. I would suggest you go through the following articles on the same issue which may help you on this.

Hope it helps.


We posted a new article, with a short post title but still the same problem.

When you look at the URL in the pop-up screen it shows a lot of codes and spaces.

Facebook and Twitter work fine, LinkedIn gets stuck.

Hi Marcus,

Would you mind sharing your WordPress admin credentials to investigate further about the issue? To do that, please give us the following information in a Secure Note.

  • WordPress Login URL
  • Admin level username and password

You can find the Secure Note button at the bottom of your posts.

Thank you.

Hey Marcus,

Something in your child theme and/or 3rd party plugins is causing the issue, I’ve deactivated plugins and switched to the parent theme and the issue is fixed (see secure note).

It is a 3rd party code that adds the excerpt in the URL that is why it becomes long.

Please note that we do not provide support for 3rd party codes. If you discover which one is causing the issue, please consult with a developer or the plugin author.

Hope that leads you in the right direction and thank you for understanding.
