Support » Plugin: Simply Pinterest » Trying to Deactivate Button on CPT

  • Hi, great plugin, very useable and clean. Thanks for sharing!
    I am having some difficulty figuring this out, and was wondering if you might be able to help?

    I am trying to deactivate the pinit button on a particular post type.I added the meta tag: <meta name="pinterest" content="nopin" /> conditionally to the header of my custom post type, but the button still appears. Sometimes it doesn’t appear, but if I refresh the page the button will appear again.

    Should I be using another method to disable pinning on a particular post type?

    Here is a sample page where I added the meta tag:

    Hi RoxyJo

    Sorry about the delay in responding. I wasn’t setup to receive email notification when someone posts in the WordPress support forum, only my Github issues forum.

    I’m unclear if you are asking about a specific “custom post type” or posts with a categorization. There is a configuration to disable the button on a per-post basis, if you are editing the post there’s a section in the right sidebar titled “Simply Pinterest Settings” and you can check the box for “Disable Pin It button for all images in this post”.

    Thank you for clever suggestion that the plugin also responds to the Pinterest meta tags. I will add that to one of the next releases!

    Hi Terri Ann,

    Are there any changes regarding the possibility to disable the pin button through meta tags?

    Thank you
