WAY better Pinterest buttons!
Sorry, the link didn’t work for some reason, it’s http://www.kevinandamanda.com/whatsnew/tutorials/add-a-pinterest-mouseover-button-to-your-blog-images.html
I wish it was possible. The limitations of WordPress.com sites are really getting to me and unless they open up things a bit I will definitely move to a self-hosted WordPress install. The Pinterest limitation alone is enough to make we want to move.
I agree! I’ve been thinking I’ll start self-hosting once my blog reaches a certain number of views.
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.
4. Please see here for enabling sharing buttons including Pinterest on your blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/
Timethief – you keep posting this info to Pinterest threads that have nothing to do with wanting a Pinterest follow button. Please don’t just copy and paste a generic answer to a specific question.
Thanks mance! I was thinking the same thing. I already have several pin-it buttons, but this one seems SO much better and more user-friendly for readers!
