  • How to Add a Pinterest "Pin It" Button to Product Display page

    HI I have been researching and reading back on the forum and I did find some information but its seems pretty dated back to 2012 and 2013. Would anyone have the code needed and exactly where I would put that on the Product display page to drop the Pin It Button on the Product Display Page. We do have a Pinterest account currently. Any help would be so appreciated.
    Thanks!

  • I'm not sure if this is still the way, but typically you would add a call to the pinit JavaScript file in the HEAD and then drop the display code onto the page where you want it to show. There should be detailed instruction on the Pinterest site.

    • Is this the code to use:
      <a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=http://&mvte:global:domain:name;/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=GHF&Product_Co de=&mvte:product:code;&media= This is what I found on an older forum from about 5 years ago. So we replace the domain:name with our domain name?

      • You should be able to make this shorter by using this:
        Code:
        <a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url=&mvte:product:link;&media=">

        • HI
          Thank you. Would I put that code in the Product Display layout code section of the Product Page and does it matter where it is put within there?

          • You would place that code where you would like the link to display within the Product Display Layout.

            • On the PInterest site I am being told to Claim our website so it is linked to our Pinterest account I need to add this code

              <meta name="p:domain_verify" content="c199b43e68613bd06f0afd79eb9f1977"/>

              the go to to the index.html file of your website and add the tag to the <head> section before the <body> section
              1. Go back to Pinterest and click Submit
              Where do I find that file to insert this code for Pinterest?

              • In your administration portal, navigate to User Interface -> Settings -> HEAD Tag Content, and append that tag to the bottom of the current code.

                • I find the head_tag but from there I am lost. Can you direct me to what file this code is inserted?

                  • You should see a section of code within the HEAD Tag Content block. Add your code there and click Update.

                        • OK yes found that. I have attached a screenshot. Can it be inserted at the bottom of that section? I dropped it in at the bottom will that work? Please see attached.

                          • The image is too small to tell, but as long as you added it to the bottom, it should work.
