[resolved] Pictures not showing- Spacing- off (5 posts)

    I am having trouble with the spacing of images. Also just today they stopped rendering. They were just fine before today. Here is the website:

    Unfortunately it looks like Pinterest has changed their image server address and it is not reflected in the RSS feed. The RSS feed gives /upload/IMAGE FILE NAME.jpg as the image source, which translates to http://pinterest.com/YOUR USER NAME/upload/IMAGE FILE NAME.jpg. But now the images are actually stored at http://media-cache(NUMBER 1-?).pinterest.com/upload/IMAGE FILE NAME.jpg and the tricky part is that the number that goes in the parentheses in media-cache(NUMBER 1-?) is not consistent, so I will have to figure out how to determine what that number is. Ugh.

    I will let you know as soon as I have time to figure it out. In the meantime, it looks like the plugin will not work for anyone.

    Looks like Pinterest has fixed the issue and RSS feed URLs are now correct. If you are still experiencing issues with images not showing you may have to clear your cache if you are using a cache plugin.

    Thanks for looking into this last time. It was indeed fixed. I was trouble shooting our site today to try and figure out the weird spacing, and found that the widget does not show on i.e. or mozilla, just chrome.

    Do you know anything about the widget not displaying on these browsers?

    Any hits on why my pins are spacing weirdly?

    When you get time of course, I understand how running a business is.

    I see the images on your site fine in all browsers. Strange. As for the spacing, add the collowing code to the bottom of your theme's CSS file:

    .widget ul.pins-feed-list li a {
      line-height: 22px;
      padding: 0 0 0 5px;

    Let me know if that solves the issue.
