Pinterest Pinboard Widget

A simple must-have widget for the Pinterest addict! Displays thumbnails of your latest Pinterest pins on your website.

My latest pins are not showing on my website

The Pinterest Pinboard Widget caches the RSS feed from Pinterest itself every 15 minutes. This improves loading time of your website, but may show a new pin with a slight delay. A just added pin also takes some time to show up in Pinterest's RSS feed.

Can I disable caching?

In the current version caching is always enabled (15 minutes). Future versions of the plugin will allow you to set the caching interval or disable caching completely.

Can I add a Follow Me button?

The current version show a 'more pins' link only. Future versions of the plugin will have more choices of buttons provided by Pinterest.

I want to add a Pinboard to a page. Is this possible?

Yes, since version 1.0.5 the plugin support a shortcode pinterest_pinboard. The following argument can be supplied:

  • username: The pinterest username to retrieve the pins for
  • rows: Nr. of rows of pins to display
  • cols: Nr. of columns of pins to display
  • new_window: Either 0 (open url in same window) or 1 (open url in new window)

Some examples of the shortcode uses are below. Retrieve 9 pins for user pinterest:

[pinterest_pinboard username="pinterest" rows=3 cols=3]

Retrieve 30 pins for user pinterest and open links in a new window:

[pinterest_pinboard username="pinterest" rows=3 cols=10 new_window=1]
