Pinterest Pro makes it really simple to add a pin it button to your images within your Joomla articles, the button will show in the upper right corner of your images when you hover over them. This is a great feature for blog style layouts. To add the button to any image is easy just add a CSS class to the image, the default class is “pinable”, this class can easily be changed to whatever meets your needs via the plugin’s parameters. The Pinterest pin description is pulled from the image's alt tag, if no alt tag is set then the plugin will use the page's meta description is that is not set it will use the page's title.





"This has been a plugin that we have been wanting to develop for some time, seeing the need to develop an easy way for our customers to add the ability for their customer to pin their photos to their pinterest boards. After a client contact us about developing it we decided to pull the trigger and develop the plugin."

—Christophor S. Wilson

Setup & Configuration

After you have installed the plugin you will want to make sure that the plugin is enabled under Joomla's plugin manager. After the plugin is enabled you can add the CSS class or ID to the image.


The following is a list of CSS classes you can use in your template's stylesheet to customize the look of Pinterest Pro.

div.pinableWrapper{} // this is the tag that wraps the image
img.pinable {} // this is the class that is attached to the image
a.pinit {} // this is the class of the red pin it button
If you have installed and enabled the plugin but it is not showing up, make sure to double check the plugin's settings look at the "Target CSS Class" make sure if you are targeting a CSS class that it starts with a period ".pinable" if you want to target an ID then use a pound sign / hash tag "#pinable". You can use any CSS class or ID that you would like.
