Hi,

I was browsing the forum but I couldn't find a solution to add Pinterest with icon to the branding section.

Anyone an idea?

I found myself with the same problem. My client wanted a pinterest logo in the branding section.

So, working with my comfort level, I found a work around. I used the linked in field to enter the pinterest address.

Then I changed the graphic that is used – without changing the name.

This was the easiest way I found. Now, I will have to remember this because when I upgrade pagelines it will revert back to the linked in logo.

 

So I made a note in their file to remind me.

All's well that ends well :)

One thing no one's noticing is that Pinterest picks up a post's featured image and lets' you add an excerpt.  If you add Pinterest to a header or branding area, it's not going to link to the post you're viewing, but to the site generally, and will grab the branding logo.  That's why I've recommended using Pinterest only inside posts, where it will pick up the post's featured image and initially the excerpt field (which you can then edit), making a link to the post, not the site.
