Helpful tip. I love Pinterest and miss the Pin button on many websites
Most welcome on Tech Prevue :)
Thank you for wonderful information provided
What if you don’t have the body tag anywhere in your HTML code? I searched with command F and it is not in my HTML code. Thanks
There is no web page without body and HTML tags.
Kindly find your code in the Blogspot HTML, not on the browser window.
Follow the steps closely.
Dear Sir, Madam
I would like to set a Pinterest button under my words. Can you help me because my blogger has a dynamic view?
Blogger does not allow JS customization in Dynamic view.
Thanks for such clear and efficient instructions. This code has been working perfectly for some time; however, in the past three days, the Pinterest hover button has disappeared with no explanation as the code has not changed at all. Any idea why that could be, please?
Thank you so much for this! This was really helpful for my blog!
Hello, what if I want to add the save button to a specific image? Not in every image on each post? I try these tips, and all images have a hover save button, including the blog banner. Thank you.
At the last step in this guide (step 5), click on “widget builder” to go to Pinterest dev site, then choose: Button type > One Image. It will show you example code to edit with your image URL.
Thanks a lot for this information! I had no idea how to add the button, followed your instructions on how to get the official in button, and it worked like a charm!
