    Updated to latest version and still Pinterest button not working.

    It's only capturing "DefaultPin.gif" Tried this on two installs separate servers and same problem.

    Pinterest script works fine via toolbar etc. But with DiggDigg still not picking up images.

    Hi Dave

    Does your theme use Post Thumbnails at all? Could you send me a link to your site so I can see the code Digg Digg is generating for your Pinterest buttons?

    Thanks

    Hi Andrew,

    I'm pulling in my images that I've got on an external photo host.

    It works with the official Pinterest button, but not with Digg Digg I'm afraid. Here's a link to a post that's already had the image sent to Pinterest via Pinterest browser script, as you can see the Digg Digg button is only bringing up the DefaultPin.gif

    Hi Dave

    The current version will try and use a post thumbnail if available. If one isn't it will grab the first image that was attached to the post through WordPress' Image Upload. Because they are external Digg Digg isn't picking them up. I'll see if I can add one last rule to the button to select the first image src from the content if post thumbnails or attachments don't exist.

    Till then you could attach the desired image and not insert it into the copy of the post. Digg Digg should then pick it up.

    Thanks

    Hi Andrew,

    Yea, unfortunately due to the amount of images I have I'm kinda stuck with external hosting.

    It's either that or move everything for Pinterest ...

    Let's see what your code rule can do. If it won't work out, then so be it. Would be nice, but that's the way it goes sometimes.

    Still a great plugin!

    Hi Dave

    Would you be able to just check whether this fixes your issue?

    Just copy the source from https://gist.github.com/4293c383b5c501021a4e into dd-class.php which is located in wp-content/plugins/digg-digg/include/, please make a backup beforehand so you can easily roll it back.

    Let me know how you get on.

    Thanks

    Hi Andrew,

    I just tried the about but unfortunately it's still only pulling that default thumb.

    As a sub note I found this plugin http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/social-sharing-toolkit and the Pinterest button is working with it.

    Not sure if the code on that one would be of any use to you?

    The developer isn't replying to much on the WP forums so not sure if it's still updated.

    Personally I'd prefer to stick with Digg Digg.

    On my site I have still have to have the featured image widget turned on in order to get it to pull an image. And even then it's not working correctly. Shouldn't it be able to give users a chance to select which image they would like to share? Also I'd like to be able to get rid of that featured image plug in, I'd like it to at least auto select the first image if no thumb now is available. Feel free to check out my site if you'd like to test it.

    Thanks.

    Same as mook73 - Pinterest button on Digg Digg brings up a Pinterest dialog with no image. Same situation for floating and normal (horizontal) Digg Digg.

    My browser pinterest bookmarklet works fine on the same pages.

    Would really like Pinterest in Digg Digg to behave exactly as Pinterest bookmarklet in browser - show all the images on any given page and user picks the one to pin.

    Hoping for resolution!

    Cheers,

    Doug

    Ditto Mook73, dblacombe, & fredmag

    Needed to uninstall...Hope this gets fixed soon.

    Also, Digg not working, but this seems to be a problem with many sharing plugins.

    Thanks!
