[resolved] Full Pin Titles? (6 posts)

    Is there a way to show the full title/name of the pin (i.e., not have it cut off in the middle of a word) when you hover over the image, and when you choose to show titles below each pin?

    Totally comfortable with digging into code and tweaking, just couldn't find what controls this. :)

    My site is http://www.thehomelifeand.me. I'm using a sidebar widget.

    Love the plugin!

    Unfortunately the title that comes from the Pinterest RSS feed is truncated to a limited number of characters, which is why it displays as such. Not sure of any way around this, but would love to know if you figure out how!

    Came here with exactly the same question, love the plugin by the way - so has anyone found a way around this?

    Cheers, Sue

    Trying to do the same thing, just a thought on this:

    It seems as if the rss outputs the "alt" attribute of the image as the full title (need to verify). You could grab that using some PHP and output it.

    Im working on a way of hard coding this although im an absolute beginner with PHP nad this is my first time really messing with it. I will let you know how i get on.

    Scratch that , there is no alt attribute but the full title does immediately follow the image src so you could grab that, although this will include any tags and things also

    I've hacked together that functionality for myself, here's how I did it:

    1) Used this FAQ to create a feed43 RSS of the Pinboard: http://www.jpluna.com/socialactionweb/2012/02/20/how-to-add-a-pinterest-pin-board-to-your-wordpress-blog/

    2) Made this code change (note: I am using the "Username Board" option)

    // Get Pinterest Feed(s)
    include_once(ABSPATH . WPINC . '/feed.php');
    if( empty($boardname) ){
    $pinsfeed = 'http://pinterest.com/'.$username.'/feed.rss';
    else $pinsfeed = 'http://www.feed43.com/4588884346035475.xml'; // << THIS IS WHERE YOU PUT YOUR CUSTOM FEED

    You can see the live board at my website, isamuel.com
