The proper functionality of the Pinterests standard buttons requires the following properties to be set:
For a PinIt button:
UrlToShare is required.
TitleToShare is optional (default values is the UrlToShare).
FromUrl is optional (default value is the Url from which the image is pinned).
CounterMode is optional (default value is none.)|
For a Follow button:
UrlToShare is required. Its format must be http://pinterest.com/USERNAME
The proper visualization of the follow button requires the omission of the 'www' from the URL of the Pinterest account
For a PinPageImage button:
- No fields required.
In order to pin an image, it must be in JPG, PNG or GIF format and its dimensions must be at least 201x201 px. More information on pinning images is available in What can I pin help article and How to Beat the Image Bias of Pinterest: Getting Pinned, Blocking Pins & Image Optimization Tips blog post.
Pinterest Standard Buttons are created via external scripts from their network and therefore we cannot fully guarantee their correct functionality.
The 'Cancel' button of the PinPageImage looks distorted under IE7.
The horizontal counter bubble is not shown when the count equals to 0.
The "+" sign, when present, is displayed below the horizontal bubble counter under Opera.
