Pinterest Pro Module

All options related to Pin buttons generated by Pinterest Pro module you can find in Social Sharing -> Pinterest Pro (including the activating of automatic showing of Pin button over content images)

Do you know how long your social media content lasts? A Pinterest post is valid for 4 months, YouTube videos last 20+ days, a LinkedIn post is good for 24 hours, an Instagram post will show up well for 21 hours, you can expect Facebook visibility to be about 5 hours and a tweet on Twitter has a lifespan of roughly 18 minutes.

Pinterest is the social network with the longest lifespan of shared content. Using eye-catching images, highly searchable titles, and captions, and be sure that the links you are using are those that will last for more than a few months. With Easy Social Share Buttons for WordPress 6.0, you gain the full power of Pinterest using the new Pro features. Let’s talk about it.

Automatically Add Pin Button for Content Images

Simple and efficient way to get new Pins for your site is adding a button all your content images. With Easy Social Share Buttons for WordPress you can do this automatically. The design of the Pin button is highly flexible. The Pin button has access to all design features you have for the regular share buttons. Your favorite templates and styles are ready to use and build an eye-catching button. Place it anywhere over the image with a custom call-to-action button text.

Just activate and the button will automatically appear when visitor points the image or it will be always visible if a mobile device is used. If you plan to use the button on mobile devices do not forget to setup custom height of images. On mobile, the themes usually display responsive images which have a height that is less than 200px (example: set 120px as a minimal height).

Pinterest Images (a.k.a Pin Quotes or Optimized Images for Pins)

It’s like the Twitter sharable quotes but made for your images. Easy add anywhere inside your content a ready to Pin image with a specific share message that will appear when used. And all that with the flexibility in the design of all your existing templates.

Do not worry about the design of your site. We know that tall images which are great for Pins may not fit well on any design. That is why the Pinterest Image feature has support for two types of images – screen image (the one that will appear on site) and Pinterest image (the one that will appear when user share over Pinterest).

Adding of such Pinterest quote is quite simple. You can do this with the editor button and fill the options, generate a shortcode from the plugin Shortcode Generator that you can place anywhere inside content or if you are Elementor user you can use the dedicated widget for this.

Hover the image to see the button

Image Galleries with Pin Button

Another unique function of the plugin that you may not find anywhere is the eye-catching image galleries with a Pin button. Just select the images you need, the columns layout and generate a shortcode (with the editor button or Shortcode Generator). Place the shortcode where you need to have the gallery appearing. You will see a modern design with lightbox for your gallery along with a Pin button appearing on thumbs and lightbox big images. It’s awesome.

Styles Library

You can access the new style library by pressing the Style Library menu on the right. To apply a style or save existing design to the library you will see a new control set over each location and global design setup.

A new way to store or use social share button styles. The previous Ready Made Styles module has evolved into a full feature styles library. With a just few clicks you can easily:

  • Apply one of the 40+ existing ready-made styles (more will come out) to any social share button positions or global styles
  • Create own personal style in the library and use it later
  • Save existing design to the style library and use it anywhere on site (or just as a backup)
  • Import/Export existing styles and move them to a new site

The new styles library will act like a design hub that you can use to store or share buttons design.

Adding Custom Positions

Creation of new custom positions you can do from Where to Display -> Custom Positions/Displays menu.

Instead of using shortcodes to show customized share buttons anywhere inside content we now present the custom positions. Custom positions is a new and unique feature of the plugin. With the help of few clicks, you can create your own custom display position. This position will appear on the list of all share button locations you can choose. To show the share buttons assigned to this position you can use a shortcode, function call, Elementor widget or Visual Composer custom element.

But why should I use it? Isn’t the existing shortcode does the same? 

Yes and No. Even they look pretty much the same as functionality the custom position integration has greater advantages than a regular shortcode. Here is the main of them:

  • Easy to manage the design, style, and social networks. The custom position you create will have all the settings like regular share button content positions. If you need to change something than visit the position settings, do the change and save settings. And it will update anywhere it is used. Simple, visual and easy to use.
  • Turn on or off directly from settings. As it like a custom display position you can simply turn it off whenever you do not need it (you have the option to force always the display if needed).
  • Access to the device responsive controls – make it hide on a tablet, desktop or mobile.
  • Access to custom position code settings.

Evolve of The Position Settings

New Controls To Manage Appearance on a Mobile Device, Tablet and Desktop

Are you still using a cache plugin or cache server without mobile support? Unfortunately most popular WordPress cache plugins that are widely used still does not support separate cache for mobile devices. That makes hard to manage the visible on mobile devices share button positions. A major change inside version 6.0 is the additional responsive appearance controls that we add to each design location. Now with the three available fields you can use to hide a particular share button position on a mobile device, tablet or desktop. All that will happen no matter what type of cache uses the user relying on the old but gold responsive technology. But if you are using a modern cache plugin with mobile cache support you can use the advanced mobile display setup in combination with the responsive checks for even better control.

New Custom Code Fields

Lastly, we receive a lot of requests for adding the ability to customize the display positions. Welcome the new custom code fields attached to each display position. The custom code fields include a code before and after the share buttons. The code you enter will appear automatically when the display method is used. The fields support custom HTML code, shortcodes, CSS or Javascript code. That gives the ability of advanced users or developers to easily change each of existing display methods without modifying the code of the plugin. And we also use those fields to supply a custom generated a display from the included designs in the style library.

The most common usage of those fields is to add an additional custom CSS code. That code will appear only when the selected position is used. To provide a proper code generation we include one global CSS class variable that you can use inside your code – {instance_class}. This variable will automatically be replaced with the unique instance share button class on the front of your site. Here is a quick example of adding CSS code:

<style type="text/css">
{instance_class} li a { background-color: blue !important; }
</style>
