Please put a Pin It Button on your sidebar or in each post

To make it easier for me to pin the recipes on your blog to the Food on Friday pinboards and other Pinboards, please put a pin it button on your sidebar.  This is how you do it.  

You need to go to your Dashboard and then to Layout and add a gadget - the one you want is Configure HTML/Java Script.

This was the code I used:

<a href='javascript:void((function()%7Bvar%20e=document.createElement(&apos;script&apos;);e.setAttribute(&apos;type&apos;,&apos;text/javascript&apos;);e.setAttribute(&apos;charset&apos;,&apos;UTF-8&apos;);e.setAttribute(&apos;src&apos;,&apos;;+Math.random()*99999999);document.body.appendChild(e)%7D)());'><img alt='Pin It' onclick='doPinIt();' src='' style='margin: 0 0 0 0;'/></a>

One last point, if your post doesn't have at least one reasonably sized image, Pinterest won't let me pin it.Pin It

  16. Hey followers from the GFC blog hop

  17. If I want to put the "Pin It button" for every post I should place the code in every post that I write right? Is there any way the "pin it button" will appear automatically after each post or pictures that I uploaded?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Vivian - re Pin It button - if you go to your Dashboard - Settings- Posts and Comments - you will see a box called Post template - if you copy the Pin it code into there it should put a pin it button into all new draft posts going forward. It did for me anyway. Good luck.


Comments are welcome. I will answer questions as soon as I can.
