Stylish and compact plugin for displaying Pinterest images in a sidebar, post, or page.
I'm getting the message "Pinterest feed was successfully retrieved, but no photos found". What does that mean?
This message simply means that while no distinguishable errors occurred, the plugin found your feed to be empty.
I'm getting the message "Pinterest feed not found. Please recheck your ID". What does that mean?
This message can mean two things. First, it can indicate that the username or custom url were input incorrectly, causing the feed to fail. In this case, you should try to correct and re-save your IDs.
Second, this message can also mean that the server your WordPress site is being hosted on has prevented the feed from being retrieved. While it is rare, we have encountered web-hosts that disable the feed fetching functions used in the PhotoTile plugin. If this is the case, there is nothing we can do to override or work around the settings on your host server.
Is there a shortcode function?
Yes, rather than explaining how to setup the shortcode, I've created a method of generating the shortcode. Check out the Shortcode Generator on the plugin's settings page ( Settings->AlpineTile: Pinterest->Shortcode Generator).
Why doesn't the widget show my most recent photos?
The plugin caches or stores the Pinterest feed for three hours. If the new photos have still not appeared after this time, it is possible that Pinterest is responsible for the delay. While Pinterest is fairly prompt about updating photo feeds, periods of high traffic (especially on weekdays between 10am and 4pm) can cause a delay in feed updates.
Can I show more than 25 photos?
Sorry but no. Pinterest has not yet released an official api and so the feeds are limited to 25 pins.
If you have any more questions, please leave a message at the Alpine Press. I am a one-man development team and I distribute these plugins for free, so please be patient with me.
