Easy Pinterest in WordPress

 Pinterest is all the rage these days. And it makes for some great photo content for your blog. But, if you’ve ever worked with the Pinterest embed code, which you are required to use, you’ve found that it doesn’t play well with the WordPress editor. Just try to float those images right or left… It’s not gonna happen. I actually thought it was operator error on the part of a client until I tried to do it myself. Oy vey! And I couldn’t find a plugin to help.

If you have been asking yourself, “What is the best way to put Pinterest embed code in WordPress?” This plugin is for you!

But the solution is at hand. Working with one of my favorite contractors we (and by ‘we’ I mean ‘he’!) developed a simple plugin that lets you pop the Pinterest embed code into a meta field, tell it whether you want the image aligned left, right, or center, and it returns a shortcode which you can use in your website.
