[resolved] How to combine text with image pinned (5 posts)

    I'm new to this plug-in. A client had it already installed and apparently my predecessor had it configured in a way that allowed the photo and quote (each blog post is just a brief quote) to appear together as one when pinned. It stopped doing that and I have no idea why it stopped OR how to reconfigure it back to the desired way. I hope this even makes sense. I'd appreciate any help.

    You can see the correct way that she wants it returned to by viewing her pins here: http://www.pinterest.com/WordsOfArtBlog/pins/

    And you can see if you go to her blog here http://www.transformrelationships.com/blog/ and click on PinIt you'll see that you get multiple images and separate text but not any image with text combined.

    Thanks for any guidance you can offer.

    I'm NOT a coder, but after reading your help stuff I decided to look at the functions.php file. Sure enough my predecessor added this code:

    function gh_add_pinterest_via_shortcode( $content ) {
    	 if ( /*current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) &&*/ is_single() || is_home() ) {
    		$pin_content = str_replace("'", " ", trim( strip_shortcodes( rtrim(strip_tags( get_the_content() ), "Daily Quote") )));
    		$content = $content . do_shortcode("[pinit description='$pin_content']") ;
    	return $content;
    add_filter( 'the_content', 'gh_add_pinterest_via_shortcode');

    So any idea why that would've stopped working? It's in a customized child theme of 2010 if that tells you anything. Thanks.

    NOTE: I removed a backtick from that code between the quote marks so it would all display as code.

    Sorry you are having some troubles with this. Could you tell me what settings you have under "General" and "Post Visibility"?

    thanks for responding. I found the fellow who did the work initially and he's going to fix it for us. AND I determined that we did indeed update the plug-in on Friday which is what caused this.

    General has Image is pre-selected checked and Save your settings when uninstalling this plugin. Useful when upgrading or re-installing is also checked.

    And Post Visibility only has this checked: Below Content and nothing else.

    Yeah it seems like all of your settings should be working with this, but since it is custom added code I am not sure where to go from here.

    I know you said the guy who originally did this for you is going to take a look, but let me know if there's anything else that I can do for you.
