WordPress: Pinterest Hover Button

All of our themes come pre-installed with their own custom Pinterest Hover Button. This allows your readers to very easily pin your content by simply hovering over the image and clicking the button.

To activate this feature, first go to Appearance > Customize in your dashboard:

Then look for the Pinterest Hover Button tab on the left of the screen:

You can now activate the Pinterest Hover Button so that it appears in different positions of the image. You can also upload your own custom image too:

    Hey Phil, slightly off topic. Do your themes allow for a hidden image (like for Pinterest)? I’m trying to figure out if that is an available feature.

      Hi V, that will certainly be possible, however it is not a feature available in the theme directly. There is probably a plugin to do it though 🙂

        Thanks I’ll look for one. I’ll keep an eye out for any updates!

    Hi Phil.

    I have the Holly & Weave theme (https://www.hellolovelystudio.com) and am wondering why the Pinterest button isn’t showing up on images when my blog is viewed from a mobile device. Anxious to make sure readers can pin. Thanks!
