Custom Windows Pinned Tiles

Create custom, live-updating tiles (with images!) for Windows 8.1/IE11 users to pin to their Start Screens.


  • Fix issues with image resizing in certain hosting environments, props gregross.
  • WordPress 4.0-compatible.


  • HUGE update adding support for Windows 8.1/IE11 and LIVE TILES:
  • Add support for live tiles featuring post titles and images or excerpts. Users must be running Windows 8.1 and the tile must be the "wide" or "large" size. You can set the frequency with which the tile should check for new posts in the plugin settings page. The tile data is generated by Microsoft (via http://buildmypinnedsite.com/) from your RSS feed.
  • Add support for all four Windows 8.1 tile sizes: Large (310px square), Wide (310px x 150px), Medium (150px square), and Small (70px square).
  • Automatically convert uploaded/selected images to the correct format (PNG) and generate all four image sizes. Note: if original image is less than 310px square, not all tile sizes will be available. Any of the images that are larger than 200kb after beeing converted and resized won't be displayed (typically only an issue for very busy images; graphics tend to work better). Updating users: please re-upload your image in the settings page to take advantage of the new features.
  • Tweak settings page live preview, although it still displays the Windows 8, not 8.1, preview.
  • WordPress 3.7-compatible.
  • Update documentation and images to reflect the awesome new capabilities of 2.0!


  • Fix image uploader for WordPress 3.6 compatibility
  • Remove deprecated jQuery live function, in favor of the on function
  • Enhance start screen preview by mimicking hover and active states for the custom tile
