Really simple Facebook Twitter share buttons
[resolved] png image of Pinterest button not showing (9 posts)

    The image for the Pinterest button for some reason stopped being displayed... there is a clickable white space to the left of the Pinterest counter that works if clicked. It is like a invisible 'ghost' pinterest button.

    I have cleared all caches, tried to disable plugin, tried to reinstall plugin... but Pinterest button remains invisible.

    website is - http:bernardkatz.com

    Any thoughts?

    Hi bkglass,
    the Pinterest guys suddenly changed their button behavior and code without warnings and breaking backward compatibility (again, like some time ago). I'm working on a quick rewrite for the new Pinterest button, removing a lot of (now useless) old code. Stay tuned!

    It appears to get worse with each update, multiple images don't work, white space when clicking pin button and it is not aligning along side the other buttons, looks terrible and is overlapping over other buttons.

    Would really like this fixed, please.

    You can see what I am referring to by heading over to one of my pages - http://gracessweetlife.com/2013/01/pink-ombre-cake-with-vanilla-bean-swiss-meringue-buttercream/

    Thank you

    Hi miavitadolce,
    the issue on your website is mostly caused by your theme; in particular, the following CSS rule:
    .postcontent a img
    that you use for image styling inside content gets applied to the Pinterest button. You can try to change the selector this way:
    .postcontent p a img
    or similar.

    Also, the Pinterest button has too little space: go to the plugin settings page and set its width at lease to 70px.

    Have a good day!

    It was working fine until you updated one month ago?

    The Pinterest guys changed recently the way their button shows and interacts with your website, causing this little issues and breaking backward compatibility.

    I'm only reflecting the changes in the plugin, in order to prevent loss of compatibility and have everything working from now on.
