Pinterest "Pin It" Button
[resolved] Featured Image is not pulled when pre-selecting (4 posts)

    Hello,

    If I set "Button type" to "Image is pre-selected (one image -- defaults to first image in post)" it does not seem to pull the featured image assigned to that item. On Pinterest, the item cannot be posted because no image is selected.

    I do not post images to the post body itself, so I'm wondering if there is a work around for this.

    I would prefer to do it this way instead of letting the user choose, as I have a ton of images on my site.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Ah, I see this feature is limited to Pro only? Dah, that's rough!

    Anyway, I might just let users select their own images. Right now the plugin doesn't seem to be able to refresh posts that load on the infinite scroll.

    I've deleted the plugin files, data, and refreshed my cache, but older Pin It button settings still remain for any posts that show up after the infinite scroll.

    I've also unchecked the "save settings" field on the plugin backend.

    I'll use the plugin if I can get those posts to use the new button settings, but if not I'll have to remove it.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hello.

    We haven't tested with infinite scrolling much at all, so I suppose it may not work with your particular theme or plugin that's adding that feature. Sorry!

    Yeah, for some strange reason any posts that show up after the infinite scroll don't update with the new button functionality you change on the backend...weird...
