Can't pin my images to Pinterest any more. Why?

by Masterful 8 replies
I have a button on every page of my site that allows visitors to pin my images to Pinterest. The button usually works. When you click on it, a window opens showing my image and asking which board to pin it to. You choose the board, click "Save", and it gets pinned.

For the passed few days, the button has stopped working. When I click on it, a blank black window appears and I can't do anything else. The window is completely blank.

I tried with a different browser. I tried with a different device. I cleared my cookies and cache. I installed the actual Pinterest Pin button and tried it with that, too. Nothing works! All I get is a blank black window.

Anyone know what's going on?

    I am so truly amazed how people never asked the company whats going on instead they come here asking why!! not being rude just wondering as to why you dd not asked them first so you would know 100% why?

    It has happened to me few times but it always resolves itself. Sometimes when Pinterest is introducing some new changes to their site these sort of errors seem to happen. If it won't resolve itself just contact Pinterest support.

    This happens sometimes. It's random and get's corrected by itself. Wait for sometime and if problem still exists then contact them

    Thanks, guys. The problem did, in the end, resolve itself. If it happens to you, just give it a few days, and, if it doesn't resolve itself, contact Pinterest.

    It might have something to do with your plugin. As previously mentioned, Pinterest itself might be doing some maintenance.
