Pinterest is a new social networking site that is very hyped. Users are loving the Pinterest ui and functionality. Eventhough i don’t use pinterest, i still like the idea behind it. Blogs have started to integrate Pinterest to their blog. Here is the list of some popular Pinterest plugins for WordPress that would be a great addition to your blog.
Pinterest “Pin It” Button
Add a Pinterest “Pin It” Button to your site to let your visitors easily pin your awesome content!
A widget to display thumbnails and titles of the latest Pinterest Pins from a specific user via their Pinterest RSS feed.
This plugin allows you to place a widget on your sidebar that fetches the most recent contents of a Pinterest user’s RSS feed and displays the corresponding thumbnail images. You can choose whether to show the description below the image, and you can set the height and width of the thumbnails to fit your theme. You also have the option of showing 4 different sizes of the official “Follow Me On Pinterest” button below the list of your pins.
This plugin adds a Pinterest widget much like the pinboards on Pinterest. It uses the original thumbnails from Pinterest itself. The plugin aims to have the same look and feel as the pinboords on Pinterest. To improve your site’s performance, the pins are cached every 15 minutes.
Ultimate Photo Widget for Flickr, Tumblr, and Pinterest
The Ultimate Photo Widget for Flickr, Tumblr, and Pinterest is intended to create a means of retrieving photos from various popular sites and displaying them in a stylish and uniform way. The Ulimate Photo Widget is currently capable of retrieving photos from Flickr, Tumblr, and Pinterest and displaying them in three styles styles: vertical, tiles, and slideshow. This lightweight but powerful widget takes advantage of WordPress’s built in JQuery scripts to create a sleek presentation that I hope you will like.
Don’t like the “Pin It” button underneath your post? Want to be able to add images directly to Pinterest by just clicking on the image? Your problems are over!
Have the user just hover the mouse over the image they want to pin and watch your visits grow! The description goes automatically as the name of the post, and so does the link of the post. Just enable the plugin. No need for any configuration!
Pin It On Pinterest places a “Pin It” button at the end of your posts, and allows you to predetermine what gets “Pinned” at Pinterest. Spawned by the idea of Jamie Swanson of The Modern Tog and developed by William Bay of Flaunt Your Site.
