Can I change the size and color of my hover Pin It button?

This is now available in version 1.0 and higher.

My image is at least 120×120 and still doesn’t have a hover Pin It button!

The hover Pin It button still might not appear if the following situations are occurring:

  • The image is referenced in your CSS or style tags as opposed to an img src
  • The image is being displayed using a lightbox or other gallery plugin that uses AJAX
  • There is some other sort of on-hover effect over the image
  • The image has the data-pin-no-hover="true" attribute set
  • The image has the nopin="nopin" attribute set
  • Your image src starts with data:
The Pin It button is offset when hovering over the image

This is a known issue that affects the Pin It button on all WordPress sites when a user is logged in. If you logout, or the user isn’t logged into the site, the Pin It button will appear in the correct spot. This will be fixed soon without any updates to the plugin needed.

Works perfectly. After seeing some negative reviews, I tried all the other pinterest plugins first, but this works fine–much better than the rest actually. Using with WooCommerce variable products and pin-it button shows up on hover for all the variations. WC version 2.6.13

Does what it says…. with issues

There are very few options for customization. One of the biggest problems is that it puts the Pin it button on EVERY. SINGLE. PICTURE. Have you uploaded a logo? Well, now whenever anyone hovers over you’re logo, a pin it button appears. Have a live instagram feed? Well now people can “pin” your instagrams. For me, this is a little excessive….I just want the possibility to pin picture which are in posts…nothing else. It works well enough, but the fact that my entire site can now be pinned is NOT a plus for me

It Works!

I have tried a few versions and they did not seem to work. This one is easy to set up. And it works perfectly.
