Pinterest Embed

  1. I am on the website Pinterest and trying to take the Embed Pin code and put it into a blog post and can't seem to get it to happen - I can't see the pictures when I publish my blog post.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is nowtherearefive.com.

  2. We can use any widget that has pure HTML but we cannot use any widgets that contain restricted codes like iframes or JavaScript widgets. In the case of Pinterest, you cannot use the Pin-it Javascript code on a WordPress.com blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    But you can put the code for the Pinterest follow button in a text widget.
    1. Go to this site, choose which one of the red Follow Me images you want, and copy the code for it. http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/

    2. Then, go to your widgets > Appearance > Widgets and select a text widget.http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/text-widget/

    3. Paste the Pinterest follow button code into the text widget, "save" the widget, "close" the widget and place it where you want it to display in your sidebar.

  3. WordPress.com is a shared blogging platform and most embed codes are stripped out here for security reasons. You can use HTML, but not javascript or iframes.
