Pinterest "Pin It" Button
[resolved] Random custom fields being added to posts (4 posts)

    Hi there,

    Since updating this plugin I am having an issue with some random custom tags being added to each post.

    When I cerate a new post the following now appears at the bottom

    pib_url_of_webpage:
    pib_url_of_img:
    pib_description:

    They are added in as custom fields and need to be deleted each time you edit the post. Does anyone know how to remove them permanently?

    I don't think you can get rid of those unless you hide custom fields altogether. You should be able to leave them alone without affecting your posts. They are there so when editing a post or page you can specify specific Pin It button parameters.

    Thanks for the response.

    The problem is I don't want the text on the posts as it just sits at the bottom and doesn't look particularly good (it looks as if something is broken having random underscored text just sitting there).

    I resolved it by hiding the div that the output text is contained in:

    .post-meta {
    	visibility: hidden;
    }

    I'm having the same problem. @scottbrown said he deleted them in each post, but I found that even when I delete and update, they will not disappear.

    I need my custom fields, too, since that is how my recipe index is constructed. I think the extra custom fields are causing the images to show up as separate posts in the search. Also, if I click on an image within a post, it takes me to a separate post containing just the image, and if I click on that, it finally shows me just the image.

    It's actually causing my some big problems, and I have zero coding experience to help me through this. Any help would be appreciated.
