Pinterest Widgets

Description

Add simple Pinterest widgets to your site in minutes. Widgets behave and appear like those from the official Pinterest widget builder.

Includes:

  • Follow button: Invite people to follow you on Pinterest from your site.
  • Pin widget: Embed one of your Pins on your site.
  • Profile widget: Show up to 30 of your latest Pins on your site.
  • Board widget: Show up to 30 of your favorite board’s latest Pins.
  • Shortcodes for all 4 widgets.

The “Pin It” Button widget is not included in this plugin and is instead included in the separate Pinterest “Pin It” Button plugin (Lite version / Pro version), which we also created.

FAQ

General Troubleshooting

Your theme must implement wp_footer() in the footer.php file, otherwise JavaScript will not load correctly. You can test if this is the issue by switching to a WordPress stock theme such as twenty-twelve temporarily.
