Out of various image tools offered by Pinterest, save to Pinterest button is one of the most important functions you need to integrate right now.
Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to add Pinterest button to your WordPress website. This article is written keeping WordPress users in mind but you can apply these steps with a little tweak on your non-WordPress websites too. Let’s start:
Step-by-Step: Add Pinterest Save Button to WordPress
Step 1: Log in to your WordPress website and navigate to ‘Theme Editor’
Step 2: Under ‘Theme Editor’, head over to ”footer.php’
1. Pinterest Image Hover Save Round Button
Save changes, reload the website and hover on any image to see the Pinterest save button.
<script async defer data-pin-hover="true" data-pin-tall="true" data-pin-round="true" src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>
2. Pinterest Image Hover Save Rectangular Button
Here comes, another detailed Pinterest image hover save button. I personally prefer this one, you can add this using the same steps described above. i.e. Under footer.php, scroll down to the bottom, and add the below code right before the </body> tag.
Save changes and reload the website. Done
<script async defer data-pin-hover="true" data-pin-tall="true" src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>
Alternatively, you can visit Pinterest developer tools directly and add an image hover save button.
