[resolved] How is the description generated? (2 posts)

    When the "User selects image from popup" option is chosen, it looks like the Pinterest description is being generated from the alt text of each image. Is that the way the plugin is supposed to work?

    Is it possible to have the Pin descriptions generated from the corresponding post title instead?

    Here's a site where the plugin is being used currently: http://www.momontimeout.com

    We're currently using the "Image is pre-selected" option because it uses the post title instead of the alt tags.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes that's how it's designed right now. Just using the image alt tag. I believe that's how the original Pinterest embed code does it and I just haven't added other options right now for that. I'll consider for a future update though.

    Thanks for the feedback.
