Pinterest is the latest social network that is currently gaining a lot of attention online, its signing up many individuals and brands at a fast rate. I have created a profile which you can follow here but I’ve yet to start using it properly. So just what is pinterest ? I’ll let them explain …

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

As with most social networks there are a number of free WordPress plugins to allow you to integrate this into your site, here I present 5 free ones you can use today…

Pin It On Pinterest

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.

Pinterest Pinboard Widget

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.

Pinterest RSS Widget

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.

  1. This is very “pininteresting”. Today, I got the high score on Pintrest and got 7 new “LIKES”, too! (my daughter hates when I say this)

    • haha yeah, Im just getting used to it at the moment – currently using it for decorating ideas for my house!
      Im sure as it evolves there will be some interesting uses for it found.

  2. Xandur

    Crappy name, nothing special.

  3. I recently join Pinterest! Its literally amazing photo sharing site! Thanks for its plugins :)

  4. Thanks for recapping the plugins! Do you know of any social share plugins that *include* pinterest as opposed to having it as a separate plugin?

  5. I would like a plugin that enables integration of your pins in the page – both plugins on here work in widgetized areas only LOL… This would work well for my resources page… in addition I can’t wait for a similar tech IN our websites :-)

  6. Wow, that’s a cool
    set of plugins. Nice post.
