Pintrest button (5 posts)

    I updated to the latest version of the plugin this week and was disappointed to find that the Pintrest button, which only worked properly at long last with the previous version, is now broken again.

    Example page:


    When you click on the pin it button, it cuts off the # and anything past it. it also does this for the & when articles have it, making it difficult to just quickly pin something and causing some readers to stop pinning since it involves "work" on their part. Childish, I know, but what changed to cause it to revert to this?

    I think some things on the Pinterest API has been updated( though I am not sure). Its nothing to do with this plugin. I will update the plugin today and add 2 more tages to be used with custom button. one will be %%ETITLE%% and the %%EDESC%% (URL safe Title and Description). Replace %%TITLE%% with %%ETITLE%% and %%DESC%% with %%EDESC%%. That will hopefully resolve the issue

    I just updated to version 1.6.1

    I am not seeing the new tags (ETITLE and EDESC) that you mentioned in the post above. Right now my Pinterest button code is as follows:

    <a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=%%URL%%&media=%%PIMAGE%%&description=%%DESC%%" class="pin-it-button" count-layout="horizontal">Pin It</a>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>

    Will the above code work?

    Also - I notice that when I use Pinterest with shortcode, the counter doesn't work. But when I check "at the bottom of the post," on the settings page, the counter works. Any ideas as to why I am having this issue?

    Here is my shortcode, which appears at the top of my posts:

    [social4i size="small" align="align-left"]

    Wondering if it would be possible to integrate Pinterest in your plugin so that we don't have to add the custom button code? Perhaps that way it would work better?

    Thank you for your help, basicaly this is a great plugin. I hope you will continue to improve it!

    Now I have upgraded to version 1.6.2, thank you for making the changes.

    My Pinterest code is as follows:

    <a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=%%EURL%%&media=%%PIMAGE%%&description=%%EDESC%%" class="pin-it-button" count-layout="horizontal">Pin It</a>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>

    You can see that I changed URL to EURL and DESC to EDESC. Should I also include TITLE or ETITLE in the code? If so, where should I put ETITLE?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    We have noticed that under certain circumstances the addition of Pinit code adds the words "Pinit" to the Summaries of the Posts on our Home page and thus were nto able to use the custom codes as provided. However, after some experimentation we discovered that by moving the Javascript call to just before the </BODY> tag in our footer template, we are now able to use the custom Pinit addition without that problem.

    Currently we're using this custom code (with the Javascript call hard coded into our theme's footer template above the </BODY> tag:

    <a href="//pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=%%EURL%%&media=%%PIMAGE%%&description=%%EDESC%%" data-pin-do="buttonPin" data-pin-config="beside"><img src="//assets.pinterest.com/images/pidgets/pin_it_button.png" /></a>
