[resolved] Pins were showing now they are not (6 posts)

    Hi, I have been using your plugin for a couple months and I think it is great. I'm not sure for how long, but recently the pics aren't showing. The Links work, just no pics. I have done a fair share of trouble shooting and followed all of the guides on your site. I don't think it is a TimThumb issue because I have a couple similar plugins that are working and I have resolved this problem in the past.

    This is the link to my site. Do you think you can help?

    Thank you. I appreciate your time.

    It looks like something changed in the timthumb.php file that allows it to connect to pinterest.com. Are you comfortable with editing the timthumb.php file? If so, look at around line 123 and make sure it reads as follows:

    // If ALLOW_EXTERNAL is true and ALLOW_ALL_EXTERNAL_SITES is false, then external images will only be fetched from these domains and their subdomains.
    if(! isset($ALLOWED_SITES)){
    	$ALLOWED_SITES = array (
    		'pinterest.com',
                    'media-cache.pinterest.com'
    	);
    }

    Let me know if this solves the problem.

    Thank you for the quick response! I updated the timthumb file, 'media-cache.pinterest.com' wasn't in the array. Although that didn't seem to fix the problem. I have done a reinstall of the plugin. Can you think of anything else I can do to trouble shoot?

    Have you specified a width and height for your pin thumbnails in the widget, shortcode or template tag?

    Please try updating to the latest version of the plugin (2.0, just updated on 4/16/12), which does not use timthumb.php for image resizing anymore. This should eliminate some issues. Once that’s installed, let me know if you're still having problems.

    Hey bk,

    Sorry for the late response. I didn't notice your posts. The latest version has been working since the update.

    Thank you
