When someone moves the cursor around the image, the small Pinterest save button comes. You can move the cursor around the image on this blog and can see the actual pin it button.
How to add Pinterest Save (Pin it )Button on images?
First Step :
You need to go to the official Pinterest site first.
If you want the large save it button on the image, then select the ”large” option. I use particularly this option for my website as you can see this. If you want just the logo of the Pinterest on the image then you can choose the ”Small” option.
I prefer the ”large” option because more people will pin the image when they will see the “save it now” option with Pinterest logo.
You need to copy that code and paste it into notepad.
Third Step :
You need to paste this code now into WordPress theme editor.
First, you need to go to the dashboard of the WordPress blog.
Then click on the left side “Appearance”, then click on “Editor”, Then click on “Footer.php”
Afte that scroll down and paste this code above the body tag.
Here is the pathway – blog dashboard -Appearance-Them Editor-Footer to paste this code.
You can see the below image to get the exact idea of where to paste this code.
Note: If you have a child theme of WordPress then, add into that. The Pinterest code will be forever on your blog.
If you have not a child theme then also you can add the code as I have shown to you. But if you have updated the WordPress theme after some time then, this code might get rewritten and you have to follow this procedure again.
However, If you don’t like to do manually, you can use the WordPress plugin.
I have used so many WordPress plugins for that and I am using this one Pinterest Pin it Button plugin right now.
