I can't 'pin' images from blog posts

Recommended Posts

When I try to 'pin' an image from one of the blog posts on one of my websites onto my Pinterest board, the only images I can pin are from the carousel. The images on the blog itself show up faded with a message 'Sorry, cannot pin this image'.

Does anyone know why this would happen?

I wondered if the carousel was the problem as I have another PlatformPro site where I don't use the carousel and I can pin from that one.

Is there a known problem or am I overlooking something obvious? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

When you deactivate the carousel on the site where the problem is happening, can an image be pinned?


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

I've Just given that a go and it didn't make a difference, except, of course, there were no images to pin without the carousel.

Are you using NextGen to display images in your posts?

No, all images in blogposts are from my flickr account.

That's the problem. Pinterest seeks to pick up the images supplied locally. It doesn't want to go from your site to Flickr, then back to your site, then to Pinterest to display the images. The same thing happens with NextGen. I'd suggest posting your images directly to your posts and that should resolve this.

Thanks Rob, but it isn't that. I've got another PlatformPro site where I don't use a carousel and all the blog post images come from Flickr and I can 'pin' the images in the blog on that one.

Hi,

You're using Platform Pro 1.2.3 can you please backup your entire site, database and custom code and then update to the latest version, which is 1.5.3.

We we will be unable to provide support until you have the latest version of Platform Pro installed and active on your site.

Also, have you thought about upgrading to PageLines Framework, as Platform Pro is now considered a legacy theme.


Please search our forums, before posting!

      The Grams section of Platform 5, is lacking lots of important features, that DMS multigram was having, there is no space for another user ID asie the default user, that was one of the strongest point of multigrams, because the Hashtag option cannot capture everyone, multiple User ID is the default standard for Instagram,  Also there is no carousel or slide on this one, it means now that if you want to display 18 pictures in one page all will be visible at once thats not good engineering.
      My appeal to the Pagelines Team, guys please let the next update have all the DMS Multigrams features that is missing on Platform 5 Grams, that will bring it to its glory...

      My client has just flagged up a problem with the Pinterest share button. When they click it on any of theor blog entries Pinterest comes back with the following error:
      Parameter 'image_url' (value http:) is not a valid URL format.
      I've checked this myself and it does indeed happen. The post has a featured image, these are using standard Pagelines DMS sections and the the site is totally up to date.
      The page is here: http://www.technicasolutions.co.uk/5-questions-to-ask-your-prospective-new-it-support-company/
      Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

      Hi,
      Is it possible to add a sidebar only for one post category? Without adding extra plugins or editing the theme code? 
      I have 4 categories of posts (blog post, news, job listing, case studies) but I want to have a sidebar only for the blog posts to appear. 
      How can I do that? 
      Thanks!

      Last year, at some point, I figured out how to remove my dates from my blog posts as per a mentor that said I shouldn't have them on. I really don't like it, though, and want to turn them back on. I have looked through everything I can think of in PageLines framework from my dashboard, but can't find where I turned them off.
       
      I've searched the forums here for help, but nothing comes up.
       
      I've read through several articles on WordPress.org forums, but none of them seem applicable because of the PageLines framework. They say I simply need to add this code: <?php the_time(); ?> or <?php the_date(); ?> to my post.php file and it will turn it back on. That seems to do nothing. Please tell me there is an easy fix!
