    Hi guys, I'm experiencing the same problem. I'm using the plugin on numerous pages on numerous sites, so I'm hoping you can help soon.

    Here's an example of a page not showing: http://thecountrybuzz.com/country-music-photo-galleries/george-strait-photo-gallery/

    Thanks!

    I have had several users report the problem, but I am unable to find a solution at the moment. There is a high likelihood that the problem is due to web hosting servers preventing the plugin from retrieving the Pinterest RSS feed. Has anyone had success using other Pinterest plugins or have they all stopped working for you?

    Hello to all, I tried to use other Pinterest plugins and had the same problemn as with Alpine PhotoTile for WordPress. I'm also using v 3.5.1
    Please update if the problem is fixed!
    ~Regards

    The problem is that Pinterest has begun blocking servers that it thinks are trying to harvest data from Pinterest.com. Most photo sharing website use APIs and are able to block a particular user from accessing the website, but Pinterest has not released an API. So instead of blocking a certain user, Pinterest blocks entire servers from accessing the RSS feed. If you are using a web-hosting company, it is likely that many dozens of websites share your server and any one of them could be responsible for getting the server blocked.
