Free Pinterest Plugin For WordPress

28 replies
So I wanted to show Pinterest "Pin It" buttons on the images on my blog - when people moved their mouse over the images. I wanted to make it very easy for people to pin my images, and drive some traffic to my posts. But when I started searching for solutions, I found that all of them sucked:

* They provide a Pin It button under the posts. Not on top of the images. Adding one more social media sharing button underneath the post adds no advantage. And most people don't even look at the sharing options anymore.

* Some of the solutions out there are paid. I found one that asked for $17 for a Pinterest plugin! (I have no idea why someone would pay for a social media integration plugin...)

So I quickly created a WordPress Pinterest Plugin that shows a Pin It button on your images - only when people move their mouse over it.

Its available for free:

    Many thanks for that. I already put a Pin It button at the bottom of the post but this one when you mouse over the image in the post shows up PinIt.

    Right on!

      I too have been hunting around for something to do this job. I ignored Pinterest at first - too busy with other projects but now I just love it but I can easily get stuck on there, some of those pics are soo appealing

      I've just ordered a tablet so I can scribble or draw on images that I add to my site just to tart them up a bit

      Thanks so much for your freebie offering, jolly decent of you

      Cheers

    Nice plugin. Thanks for the share!

    Although I would have liked it more had you slapped it behind an affiliate program for me to promote lol.

    Thanks again.

    Ankesh, this looks great thank you so much.

    I've seen a few plugins that do this but they're not free at all.

    Awesome!

        Ankesh, I've been looking for a free plugin that would let me put the button next to the image instead of at the bottom of the post. Currently, most of my images are linked to affiliate offers. Will your plugin let me put the Pin-It button next to the image--not on top of it?

    Thanks Ankesh, just downloaded to check out. I also posted this on my Pinterest Facebook group as an alternative to paid Pinterest plugins. There are several free Pinterest plugins out there.

    I think someone released very similar plugin recently as WSO for $9.

    Love the fact you are releasing this for free. Great job!
