LinkedIn Avatar 403 Response


#1

We’re seeing intermittent 403s from the media.licdn.com server - some users can see the avatar, but others get a 403 at the exact same URL.

I know this is fundamentally a LinkedIn issue, but since the Auth0 WP plugin is borrowing these images, any insight on why this might be happening or if perhaps there is a more stable image URL that should be used instead?

Example:

https://media.licdn.com/mpr/mprx/0_xfyAKR4RCit_89KnV18tTuHYCgxEknxzV68c35dR1lPozspzp18BrGHRtg0FQsxv0S8tTfWY3IO7cb8U4kDYbhdjnIOfcbDnMkDYq34UiI-7cb-gZlhvQzXc8rGiQAyj2xAO-VZNny76NijVo3Hf1E

This returns a 403 for two of my staff but I can see it without issue.
