[Resolved] [Plugin: Pinterest "Pin It" Button] 404 error

  • Hi Phil,
    I have installed (and then reinstalled after this happened the first time) the latest version of your plug in and opted to only display the widget in the sidebar. Where the widget should be displayed is the message “Not Found (404)
    The requested URL /bbb/wp-content/plugins/pinterest-” The first time, I tried to find the source of the error in the plug in files but could not – I only have a rudimentary understanding of html/css.
    I was wondering why this happened/how I might be able to fix it.
    I understand that offering support must be quite time consuming, but I have tried a couple of other plug ins and yours is the one I really want to use! I really appreciate your time 🙂

  • ps – I’m guessing the appropriate url is: “/bbb/wp-content/plugins/pinterest-pin-it-button.php”… Just wondering which plug in file I would need to edit?

    Are all fields of the widget filled out?

    Also, this could be a security issue some people are running into because of the way their web host is configured. I am working on a workaround for it.

    If the issue still happens could you post your website address or URL where the issue is happening?

    Hi Phil,
    I did not in fact fill out all of the widget fields. I saw that you marked them “required” but I guess I thought the rules didn’t apply to me :p I thought those fields were only required if you planned on choosing the url & image for the pinner. Maybe in the next update you could include some stronger language for those of us who think we know what we’re doing but obviously don’t.
    Thank you so much for your help! I really appreciate it 🙂
