  • Resolved ehkl


    Hi Sean, I have to say this is a great plugin. I was looking for this feature and your plugin delivers.

    I have one suggestion that would further enhance this plugin in my opinion.

    > It would be great to be able to click anywhere on the image to pin it instead of only clicking the pin it button because when the user hovers and immediately sees the pin it then they might click on the image but that would just bring them to the source image location.

    > This feature could maybe be toggled in settings so website owners can set it to the button only or the clicking on the whole image to pin.

    Would love to see this implemented!!!

    Take care and good stuff!

  • Does the plugin support photos uploaded through the featured image section?

    For reference, here’s an article using just one featured image:
    Solar Energy Information


    Hi Ehkl,

    No, it doesn’t. Only images in the post itself. There is no support planned for featured images in the foreseeable future.

    Difficult to implement?

    Yes. You can try to add it manually to your theme, but be advised that if you do so, all featured images will have the Pin It button (no matter the class).

    In your theme, look for the following code:
    <?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>
    Or something like that. Try adding the following:

    <span class="pibfi_pinterest">
    <?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>
    <span class="xc_pin" onclick="pin_this(event, '<? the_permalink(); ?>&media= <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail(); ?>&description=<?php the_title();?>')">

    Please note this is untested and I really can’t give much support regarding this, but the code might help you get a head-start 😉
