    I'm trying to use the Pinterest button. The button mostly works, however it never picks up an image. Am I missing a config option somewhere?

    Thanks

    I'm trying to figure this out too, based on various forum posts. Here's what I got so far, but it's not working:

    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style">
    " pi:pinit:media<?php $thumb = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), 'thumbnail_size' );
    $url = $thumb['0']; ?>" pi:pinit:layout="horizontal">

    </div>

    Did either of you get this to work out? splatterMUSIC, I think part of your code didn't make it into the post.

    When I try to paste in code that has php, into the custom buttons section of the AddThis settings, it changes it. So I'm at a loss for what to do.

    For me, no image shows when you click on the button to pin it, and when you try to pin it, it doesn't--nothing happens.

    Well, I just tried the Sharing is Caring widget, & it works fine and has a Pinterest button.

    I've been uploading my photos to flickr, then linking them to my blog, and those aren't showing as a thumbnail for pinterest though.

    Yeah, I gave up, I'm afraid. I lack the technical skills to solve much more of the issue, so I'm going to wait and see if AddThis, or Pinterest themselves, comes up with a more solid solution. Please let us know if any of you wizards gets this working though!

    Only the best.

    Try the Sharing is Caring Widget. It's simple to set up--just click if you want it at the top or bottom of the posts, and which pages.

    Hopefully AddThis will get it figured out, and I'll go back to them.

    I figured out a solution that still uses the AddThis plugin. I needed to use AddThis because I'm using the shopp plugin, and it seems to be the only sharing plugin that doesn't conflict with shopp.

    I installed the Pinterest "Pin It" Button plugin. Under the settings I selected the same pages for it to appear on as my AddThis settings. I left all of the boxes unchecked for where it should appear so I could use the code manually. Then for the CSS, I put this:

    .pin-it-btn {
    margin-left: 35px;
        position: absolute;
    }

    Then in the AddThis settings, I clicked on the custom button setting, and pasted this:

    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style">
        <a class="addthis_button_facebook_like" fb:like:layout="button_count"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_tweet" tw:via="addthis"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_google_plusone" g:plusone:size="medium"></a>
    <a class="addthis_counter addthis_pill_style addthis_nonzero"></a>
    <a class="pin-it-btn" title="Pin It on Pinterest" href="void(0)"></a>
    </div>

    This gives a Facebook Like button, twitter, google+, AddThis, and Pinterest. If you add any other buttons, you might need to change the CSS code for the Pinterest button. It seems to work great. The Pinterest button doesn't have a counter though. But, when someone clicks on it, they can choose which photo to pin. You can see it here on my blog:

    I found another way...I just added the below code as my AddThis custom code above my post.

    <!-- AddThis Button BEGIN -->
    <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style ">
    <a class="addthis_button_facebook_like" fb:like:layout="button_count"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_pinterest" pi:pinit:url="http://www.thebleepkidssay.com" pi:pinit:media="http://www.thebleepkidssay.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/BigIcon.png" pi:pinit:layout="horizontal">
    <a class="addthis_button_tweet"></a>
    <a class="addthis_button_google_plusone" g:plusone:size="medium"></a>
    <a class="addthis_counter addthis_pill_style"></a>
    </div>
