Pinterest Launches ‘Pin It’ Button For WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr and More.
July 21, 2021
Pinterest recently announced on their Pinterest For Business Blog they will be bringing the Pin It button to more platforms, specifically Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress.org and Wix.
If you’re not familiar with the Pin It button, it’s a sharing button similar to the Tweet or Like buttons that allows you to share content on Pinterest with a single click.
Pinterest promises these new platform-specific integrations will make it easier than ever to add the Pin It button to your website.
Here are some specifics for each platform:
You can add the Pin It button or the hovering Pin It button to your Tumblr blog. Get instructions from Pinterest’s Help Center.
The Pin It button has become one of the default sharing buttons on Blogger. Clicking the button will automatically pick up the first image in the post and set the description via the format: “Blog title: blog post title.” The URL will be set to the permalink of the blog post.
You can now add the hovering Pin It button to your WordPress.org blog by simply by installing the plugin and choosing the button you want.
The Pin It button is now built in to the Wix.com page editor. That Pin It button will create a Pin based off of the image and description you specify and will link back to the page of the site you’re on when you click the button.
If none of these options suit you, you can still add a Pin It button the old fashioned way by building one using Pinterest’s widget builder and manually adding it to your site.
Pinterest says they will continue to add new integrations in the future.
