How to Add a Pinterest Button to Posts in New Blogger

One of my most popular posts has been my "How to Add a Pinterest Button to All Blog Posts" post. However, lately I've been getting questions on how to do it in the new Blogger interface. I updated the tutorial below. Hope this helps you navigate through the new look a bit easier!


1. Copy this code:


2. Once you've logged into your Blogger Account, click the Template tab and then select Edit Html.


Click Proceed, and an html box will pop up. Be sure to check the "Expand Widget Templates" box.

3. Look for <div class='post-footer'> and paste the code directly after that.

4. Save your Template and you should be good to go!

Note that this coding makes the Pin It button appear on the bottom right side of your posts. If you want the button on the bottom left side of your posts, replace the <div style="float: right; margin: 4px;"> coding with just <div>.

You can also customize your Pin It button. I used the standard Pin It image that Pinterest supplied, but changed its color to match my blog. You can really use any image that you want. Once you create it, host it online, and put its link in place of http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v419/green_tea/pin.jpg in the coding above.

Adding a button to your blog is a great way to help readers keep track of their favorite posts from your blog! They can easily find, or be reminded of, DIY tutorials they want to try or products they want to add to their wishlist! Give this Pin It button tutorial a try!

  5. Oh my gosh, I think I have done it! Thanks to your help! I didn't edit my html though (chicken) I clicked "settings" "basic" and then "posts and comments" and added the code there. (less damage if I messed up?) Anyways, just pasted your code there, and did a test post, THERE IT WAS - all beautiful and "pin it"-y. THANK YOU!

  19. Thank you! I had done this before but completely changed my blog's template and lost it, so I searched google and pinterest to find instructions that worked since I hadn't saved my earlier ones. Yours were the only ones that worked!

  36. This worked for me, however, when i click on pin it, it brings up all of the pictures on my blog, not just the ones in that post. Is there some way to have it only show the picture in the post I want to pin? It pins my entire blog, not the post. Thank you :)

  40. I don't see an option to Expand Widget Template, so I guess that's why I cannot find "div class='post-footer'"

    Any ideas??

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ok, I figured out how to manually expand all the widgets (shew), but it didn't work. Any idea what went wrong? Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can not find an "expand widgets template" button. Any advice?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hmm, it didn't work for me. Like others, I didn't see "Expand Widgets" button, but found the "div class= 'post-footer' and copied the code directly after. The Pin It button did not show up anywhere.

Thanks for the comment! I read them all and reply when I can. Please be sure your blogger account is linked to your e-mail so I can do so! (Tutorial on how to do that here: http://tinyurl.com/c6gh9fk) xo JA
