Pinterest Widget?

  1. Is there any Pinterest widget to use it with WordPress blog, if any one suggest best Pinterest widget to use with my blog http://hitechzilla.com on side bar.

    Thanking you all.

  2. Hello there,
    You can use any widget that has pure HTML but you 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. RATS! I made the classic error of not clicking into your blog before I posted. What I posted does not apply to you. Your site is not a free hosted WordPress.com blog.You are posting to the wrong support forum and need to post to http://wordpres.org/support/ instead.
    For clarity read > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
