    It was brought to my attention that some of the Pinterest images were not showing. I fixed 1 of the posts but now noticed that another one is not showing the images. Here is the link to the post- http://ibdesignsusa.wordpress.com/2013/02/19/nautical-wedding-ideas-springsummer/

    I originally embedded them in the text editor and they were showing when I originally posted this. Can anyone explain why they aren’t showing now?

    The blog I need help with is ibdesignsusa.wordpress.com.

    Looking at the very first one (they all have the same issue), Pinterest provided this as the image URL: http://assets7.pinimg.com/upload/186055028327943640_TwiTyAiH_c.jpg and that image no longer exists.

    I recommend contacting Pinterest about this.

    Same issue here… seems like Pinterest changed some structure… for example, this code
    “src=”http://media-cache-ec4.pinterest.com/upload/75153887501279831_IqqQc5yC_c.jpg” “
    from a while back leads to a Pin which now contains this in the embed code:
    “src=’http://media-cache-ak1.pinimg.com/550x/82/a0/ad/82a0ad9d6b99d9a548f18c5aa293d016.jpg’

    Kind of a major difference, huh? ;) I, like ibdesignsusa, will contact Pinterest, but they aren’t NEARLY as nice and knowledgeable as both you WP staffers and our beloved volunteers here, so I hope no hope. Major problem if Pinterest did this without notification!!!!

    Big difference auntiekate. I ended up having to fix quite a few posts. Haven’t had time to contact them but not sure how much help they would be. They definitely did without notification on Pinterest. I had a follower tell me that they couldn’t see my pics. Sorry to hear that you are going through it also.

    Well, no response from Pinterest… and it has gotten worse.
    YOU CAN NO LONGER embed a nice, attractive pin, with that tasteful automatic link back to the pinner and directly to Pinterest. Embed code now makes a small graphic with their branding all over it. That is, IF you can get their code to work… I can’t.
    The ONLY solution to this I can figure is to save the graphic on your machine, hunt down the original pinner manually in order to give them credit, add a caption with the credit, then proceed with your blog post. (And, with that method, Pinterest loses credit and site traffic.)
    Sure hope Pinterest gets wind of how much this is impacting our decisions to link to THEM and reassesses what they’ve done. Til then, Sayonara Pinterest-linked posts on my blog.

    Thanks for letting me know. I never heard back either. In fact after repairing quite a few post have quit posting any of the pictures from Pinterest on my blog. Loved how it worked before and how it clicked to the original pinner. It’s a shame but won’t be posting anymore pics from Pinterest, that’s for sure.
