Adding Pinterest to list of Social Icons in Header


Question

Posted · Report post

In the Global settings, under the the Header and Footer section, where it lists 
"Social Icons Pro", it enables you to list several social media accounts but not Pinterest. How can I add pinterest to the list of the social media links so it will show up in the header? Thank you!

Hi,

 

I'm not sure if you realize this, but Pinterest works on a per-post basis.  When you add a Pinterest link to the header area (and I speak from experience here), Pinterest will pick up your branding logo and a link to the site, not the post in most cases. I actually added a Pinterest link in my header area and discovered soon that it was a bit of a mistake. People tried pinning a page or post, only to display my branding logo, not the post's thumbnail, and they were only linking to my homepage. 

 

Pinterest works much better when inside the post or page, giving links to them, which is what you want people to see, I'm sure.

That would be a nice addition. And then perhaps also to Instagram account.
