A BIG Thank You to all for voting this May 2012 Mod of the Month!

Version 1.04 - Added showpost compatibility
Version 1.01 - Compatibility fix for dbtech Advanced Thanks/Like mod
Version 1.0 - Initial (Non-Beta) Release

This mod is compatible with all VB 3.8 and 4.x versions released to date. It has been tested on VB 3.8.7, VB 4.1.11, and VB 4.2.0 and should work on older and newer versions as well.

Live Demos:
VB4 Demo: Pinterest Share Demo at Qapla.com
VB3 Demo: Pinterest Share Demo Thread - JUOT - Joe's Ultimate Off Topic

Pinterest is the next big thing in Social Media. It offers a very intuitive and friendly interface for users to share the things they like, use, and appreciate.

Unlike with Facebook or Twitter Pinterest absolutely requires some sort of visual representation of what you are sharing- this takes the form of a thumbnail image of a larger image or a thumbnail of a video.

Previously even if you could incorporate the Pinterest Pin button code into vBulletin there was no way to associate a unique image with every post.

This mod will search east post for any of the following. Priority is given to higher ranked items. The first instance of the first item type found will become the thumbnail sent to Pinterest. Each item can be enabled or disabled from the mod settings.

1) First it will look for YouTube videos. (Either embedded with [VIDEO] BBCode OR regular YouTube links OR YouTube videos embedded with the AME mod.

2) If no YouTube video is found it will next look for links to any external images. These are images that use the [IMG] BBCode.

3) If no external images are found it will look for any inline attachments. In the settings you can specify whether it should share the full sized attached image or only the thumbnail. Guests must have permission to download attachments or to see thumbnails for this option to work.

4) If none of the above find anything the mod can use this option will use avatar of the poster as the thumbnail sent to Pinterest.

5) If the user has no avatar as a last resort you can specify a link to a default forum image (perhaps the forum logo?) that will be submitted as the thumbnail.

Pinterest will not accept any Pins that do not contain a valid, guest accessible, image thumbnail.

You can choose the default description text. You can take text from the post itself, the thread title, or the forum META description. In any case the user always has the option to edit the description before submitting it to Pinterest.

The mod also contains a number of settings that allow you to choose how you want the Pinterest button to look, where you want it, and other basics such as what forums, styles, or usergroups to disable but button for or in.

The mod uses auto template edits for basic use however power-users will want to opt for the manual template edits (explained below) for even better customization and positioning of the Pinterest Pin Button.

Known Issues:
Using the recommended locations and settings the mod is working well on VB 3.8 and VB 4.x as you can see in the demo links above. However adding the Pinterest button causes some visual changes in some browsers.

For example in VB 4 with Chrome browser if you quick-edit a post with the Pinterest button the editor toolbar is pushed down lower than normal. Everything works it's just different than you are used to. In Firefox however the editor toolbar looks fine.

In VB 3 in the post message area location the "numbers" from the pin button are outside the border of the main table. This is somewhat on purpose- I think having the count outside the box draws more attention to them. Unfortunately if you don't like that all I can suggest is to disable the count completely because I am not a style expert. You are free however to do the manual template edit including in the instructions (and below) to find the perfect spot for your Pin button on your style(s).

That is correct, it only pulls the first found element.

I am experimenting with code to choose an image via javascript but it is nowhere near ready, not sure it ever will be. I can't get it to work with the counts... So far it is only working with the static image button.

The button is showing on every post even with no images or videos. I suspect this should not be the case. What would cause this?

If you enabled the option to use avatars or you specified a logo URL those would both cause the Pin button to show on every post.

The URL is there only if the Admin wants to allow sharing of EVERY post, even if there is no image. It's up to you.

Thank you for making it vB3.8 compatible! I had some minor formatting issues from some members when using the Postbit placement, but it works great in the post controls area. Voted for MOTM.

I cannot get the mod to show on my threads. Tried the manual template fix and the default instal with nothing showing. Manually tried puting the script in bot the POSTBIT and POSTBIT_LEGACY templates and nothing happens. Do you think this mod is compatiable with the Sidebar Everywhere plugin?

I'd imagine it should be... Please put everything back to normal first, I can't troubleshoot if you've "put the script in the POSBIT" - I don't even know what you mean by that to be honest.

Then give me a ink to a post with an image or video in it so I can see what is going on.

Ok, got it working.

Is there a way to move this into the post bit area under the avatar?

With the sidebar everywhere plugin installed it prevents videos from being shown all the way.

Thanks for all the help and great mods!
