Pin It Pinterest WordPress Plugin

This WordPress plugin will automatically add a Pinterest Pin It button to all your images on your WordPress site.

It will search your content for image tags and will add a button on top of the images to make it easy for your visitors to share your images on Pinterest.

Pinterest is the newest popular social media network which is focused around sharing images with your friends. You create different boards to assign your images to, these are used to categorise your images. The facts show that from social media referral traffic Pinterest will bring more traffic to your website than Linkedin and Google Plus combined.

What Makes This Plugin Different?

There are many WordPress plugins that will allow you to add Pinterest buttons to your images, so what makes this plugin different? I have made a free version of this plugin which would only place the image in the top left corner of the image, this is the same with many other Pinterest plugins. The main request that I had with this plugin is that people want the flexibility to move the Pinterest button anywhere they want on the image. With this plugin you have the ability to set a starting postion for your image being:

  • Top Left
  • Top Center
  • Top Right
  • Middle Left
  • Middle Center
  • Middle Right
  • Bottom left
  • Bottom Center
  • Bottom Right

From these starting positions you can define a new position offset to move the image exactly where you want it.

Pinterest has 2 style of buttons, you can have the vertical position count or the horizontal positioned count.

Some of the requests wanted the Pinterest button it be hidden until the user hovers their mouse over the image. This has the ability to only display the Pin It button when you hover over the image.

All of these settings can be customised from from the plugin settings page.
