Pinterest "Pin It" Button
[resolved] New window (4 posts)

    I have installed the latest version of the plugin and was hoping there would be something in the shortcode to allow me to set the pinit window open in a new tab or new window?

    Is this possible?

    Hi Andrew -- Right now this plugin is just using the same functionality for popups that Pinterest's own embed code, bookmarklet and browser extensions use.

    If you're familiar with WordPress filters and/or HTML & JS, you could disable the pinit.js file that runs, which I believe would cause each link to just open a new window, maybe adding a target="_blank" attribute to each link tag as well.

     * Hooked to the wp_print_scripts action, with a late priority (100),
     * so that it is after the script was enqueued.
    function wp_dequeue_pinit_script() {
       wp_dequeue_script( 'pinterest-pinit-js' );
    add_action( 'wp_print_scripts', 'wp_dequeue_pinit_script', 100 );

    Note I did not test this but modified from http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_dequeue_script

    Hello Phil,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I did try the target blank but this had no effect.

    I found this while searching for an answer, is this something that could be applied to this plugin too, might be easier to edit the plugin php files?

    We will look into that for an upcoming release. Thank you!
