Configuration Help

  1. Pinterest User ID: This is your Pinterest user id. This is the one you can find from the Pinterest URL also. Suppose
    your account URL is: then xyz is the User ID and you need to enter this.

  2. From Board: Here you can mention from which board you want to show the pins. So how do your find the From Board name. Just login to your
    Pinterest account an click on the board from where you want to show pins. Now see the URL it looks something like, then here the last part is the From Board and you need to enter it, that is
    board-name withour any trailing slashes.

  3. Cache Time: You can select the cache refresh time(In hours). This is the time duration upto which cache will be valid and after
    that it will be refreshed and will fetch latest content from your Pinterest.


I get the error “Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in /var/www/web/html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/my-pinterest-badge/pinterestloader.php”. AND/OR I get the error “Warning: file_get_contents(…[function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in /var/www/web/html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/my-pinterest-badge/pinterestloader.php”

The plugin requires either CURL or file_get_contents() to be enabled on your server.If your host gives you access to your php.ini then you can change the ‘allow_url_fopen’ setting to ’1′ which will fix your problem. Otherwise speak to your host and ask them to enable CURL or allow_url_fopen for you.
