The problem is you can't give it an image (media) and Pinterest won't take an entry without it.

I guess you could setup a static image of your forum logo for all threads but that completely defeats the purpose of pinterest.

Attachments also must be viewable to guests so for most forums that have restrictions on who can see attachments (at least full size attachments) trying to share a thread with just attachments for images would also not work well even if you could manage to find the first image in a thread.

I put some significant thought into this but I keep hitting brick walls.

I thought just search posts for the first <img> tag and use that as the media... but too often the first <img> tag is a smiley or an attachment not visible to guests.

Then I thought search the pre-parsed post for [IMG] bbcode but that will again not find attachments and in VB4 the default behavior is to make outside images into local attachments anyway.

Adding a field to a thread for a user to choose a pinterest image would be ignored by most everyone posting.

Pinterest just isn't really designed for forum-like content.

Still will keep thinking this through though.

hmmm so we (forum users) should inform/report it to pinterest they might help us out because it is a great source of traffic for sites but anyway thank you. I hope it will get better with time as it just started.

What would be nice if if Pinterest could scan the page if no media link is given and choose maybe the largest image or even a box asking the user to choose a share image at the time of submission.
