Pinterest is the next big thing in Social Media. It offers a very intuitive and friendly interface for users to share the things they like, use, and appreciate.

Unlike with Facebook or Twitter Pinterest absolutely requires some sort of visual representation of what you are sharing- this takes the form of a thumbnail image of a larger image or a thumbnail of a video.

Previously even if you could incorporate the Pinterest Pin button code into vBulletin there was no way to associate a unique image with every post.

This mod will search east post for any of the following. Priority is given to higher ranked items. The first instance of the first item type found will become the thumbnail sent to Pinterest. Each item can be enabled or disabled from the mod settings.

1) First it will look for YouTube videos. (Either embedded with [VIDEO] BBCode OR regular YouTube links OR YouTube videos embedded with the AME mod.

2) If no YouTube video is found it will next look for links to any external images. These are images that use the [IMG] BBCode.

3) If no external images are found it will look for any inline attachments. In the settings you can specify whether it should share the full sized attached image or only the thumbnail. Guests must have permission to download attachments or to see thumbnails for this option to work.

4) If none of the above find anything the mod can use the avatar of the poster as the thumbnail send to Pinterest.

5) If the user has no avatar as a last resort you can specify a link to a default forum image (perhaps the forum logo?) that will be submitted as the thumbnail.

Pinterest will not accept any Pins that do not contain a valid, guest accessible, image thumbnail.

You can choose the default description text. You can take text from the post itself, the thread title, or the forum META description. In any case the user always has the option to edit the description before submitting it to Pinterest.

The mod also contains a number of settings that allow you to choose how you want the Pinterest button to look, where you want it, and other basics such as what forums, styles, or usergroups to disable but button for or in.

The mod uses auto template edits for basic use however power-users will want to opt for the manual template edits (explained below) for even better customization and positioning of the Pinterest Pin Button.

Known Issues:
Using the recommended locations and settings the mod is working well on VB 3.8 and VB 4.x as you can see in the demo links above. However adding the Pinterest button causes some visual changes in some browsers.

For example in VB 4 with Chrome browser if you quick-edit a post with the Pinterest button the editor toolbar is pushed down lower than normal. Everything works it's just different than you are used to. In Firefox however the editor toolbar looks fine.

In VB 3 in the post message area location the "numbers" from the pin button are outside the border of the main table. This is somewhat on purpose- I think having the count outside the box draws more attention to them. Unfortunately if you don't like that all I can suggest is to disable the count completely because I am not a style expert. You are free however to do the manual template edit including in the instructions (and below) to find the perfect spot for your Pin button on your style(s).

I'm working on a way to enable the option of lettings user's pick the image. So far the javascipt to do that seems to be incompatible with javascript to keep counts- and Pinterest has no developer resources yet.

The next update will likely include this option but it will be at the expense of having a counter unless I can figure it out by then.

Is there any way this can be added to SHOWTHREAD instead (while referencing the first post)? That's where my Facebook, Google+ and Twitter buttons are, and I think it would look kinda messy having the Pinterest button in a different location.

No, not as coded- would require major changes.

I am feeling a little stupid. I added the mod manually but I can't for the life of me find the first screenshot that you show, that looks like a setup screen.

Where do I find this?

Thanks

Rick

I believe it's due to the encoding of the non-English characters. I do not know a work around, sorry.
