Pinterest has gained lots of interest on the Internet recently, so I have developed (with much help from Shane Jones) a Pinterest “Pin It” Button WordPress plugin!


  1. Download the plugin direct from the Plugin Page at WordPress.
  2. Upload the whole plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  3. Go to the Plugins page and activate the plugin
  4. The Pin It button will now appear underneath every post
  5. …or insert the shortcode!

Example Shortcodes:

To insert the Pinterest button, simply enter the following shortcode within a page, post or text widget:


More options will come later, but we wanted you to have the shortcode as soon as possible!
