Pinterest follow me widget wont display correctly

  1. Hi,
    I've followed the instructions shown here to add a pinterest follow me widget to my site. However all I get is a text link, not the actual button. I've been successful with the bloglovin' version, so not sure what the problem is?


    The blog I need help with is

  2. The pin it button is JavaScript. We cannot use JavaScript pin-it widgets nor can we install any plugins on free hosted blogs, so do be clear on that please.

    You can capture an image of a Pinterest icon and upload it, link to it and display it in a text widget. I have done this here in the text widget at the top of my sidebar for those who want to follow me on Pinterest and here on my About page

    For creating links in a text widget see:

    You can upload image files by clicking the Add Media button right above the editing area of a page or a post.

    You can also upload new files to your Media Library using Media → Add New.
