Hey all! Just wondering if anyone's ever explored doing a "pin it" on-hover extension. A colleague asked about it, but I'm not finding anything other than the traditional Pinterest share buttons.

I guess they just call it an "on hover pin it button."

Reference & info: https://developers.pinterest.com/on_hov ... t_buttons/

I'm not inclined to customize our site for this unless it's straightforward, but it'd be a nice vqmod extension if there's nothing available.

Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

Just need to add 1 line to your footer.tpl template just before the closing body and html tags:

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript" async data-pin-hover="true" src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>	
The pin it button will display on every image on your store this way. I use it on mine.

Just put that single line in your footer. It gives every image a "pin" it button when you hover over it. No extension. Just that line.

Use a ftp program and edit your template/common/footer.tpl
