    Could you provide more details, like a page link or at least a screenshot of the problem?

    I don't think I'm seeing the same problem. For me it seems to work just fine. Could you take a screenshot?

    In any case keep in mind, once you click on the button you are simply redirected to Pinterest so it's up to them whatever content is displayed, not the plugin.

    I have just installed this plugin and am having the same problem on my site.

    I tried the Pinterest button on your site and it didn't work for me either.

    I dont think that it is Pinterest as it works with a differnt plugin.

    You should take a screenshot of the problem as I'm not able to reproduce on my end.

    I believe I know what this problem is. I had the same problem with the Pinterest button not connecting the image. If a "featured image" is not set on your post, Social Media Feather will not connect with any image from the post and the pin will not have an image.

    Most plugins have a back up setting that will list all of the images on the page that you can choose from if the feature image is not set.

    Hope this helps!

    I'll see if I can set a favourite image on the gallery to test it. The browser pin-it add in does display all the images and you just pick one

    I am having exactly this problem, and am in communication with the writer of the plugin that generates pages for me. I'm glad everyone posted what they did here, because now I sound much smarter as I ask her if there can be a "default" or "featured" image on each of those pages. Fingers are crossed that they can be defined in her plugin. If not, I can't use Social Media Feather.....which would be a shame, because I do like it D:

    The latest version should now have this feature, where the first image is picked if the featured thumbnail is not set.
