Support » Plugin: jQuery Pin It Button for Images » Display data-pin-description

  • Hi! I installed the free version and am very pleased with it. I noticed however that the plugin is overriding my data-pin-descriptions. Could you tell me which settings to use to get around this? I played around with the description source, but did not manage.. Can you tell me how to fix this?

    Cheers, Maaike

    Hey @studiostilla,

    what do you mean by

    the plugin is overriding my data-pin-descriptions

    ?

    The plugin uses its own set of data attributes, so I don’t think it can override any data attributes.

    Hi! Thanks for getting back to me!

    I’ll try to explain. For a number of images I added additional information, the ‘data-pin-description’. Normally, Pinterest should display this description instead of anything else. It adds extra visibility and (possibly) SEO, so it’s a thumbs up to use. See No4 on this site:

    https://business.pinterest.com/en/blog/pin-it-button-technical-tune-up-5-tips-to-make-sharing-from-your-site-better

    I noticed however, that -following installation of ‘jQuery Pin It Button for Images’- that the ‘data-pin-description’ was no longer triggered to accompany the pin. (Interestingly, Tailwind could still grab it). When I deactivate the plugin, both Pinterest and Tailwind use the ‘data-pin-description’ again.

    I must say that I like the fact that I can choose different pin texts (title, alt, etc), but I’m really missing this one!

    It would be great if there would be an option to display the ‘data-pin-description’ on the list of ‘Description sources’.

    I prepared 2 screen shots to illustrate the issue, but I’m don’t know how to share them..

    I hope you can help!

    Best wishes, Maaike

    Hey @studiostilla,

    okay, I think I know what do you mean. Generally speaking, the plugin uses whatever is set as the description source and ignores the data-pin-description attribute. Since it’s Pinterest’s default attribute, I think it makes sense to add it as a description option. Will add it in the next version and pin you here once it’s available.

    Hey @studiostilla,

    I just released an updated version of the plugin with the added description option. Let me know if everything works properly!

    Yes, it works! Thank you for listening. I suppose it’s a win-win! I will give it a good review on WordPress and buy the premium version. Cheers!

    So… I upgraded to the Pro version, but now the ‘data-pin-description’ is not pinned! Could you please look into this?

    Hey @studiostilla,

    I usually wait around 24 hours before I update the Pro version with changes (so if any bugs slip into the free version, they don’t into the Pro version). The updated Pro version will be released tomorrow. Sorry for the trouble!
