Pinterest FAQs

** DISCLAIMER**
Although an avid Pinterest user, I am no expert, especially when it comes to the technical issues the site seems to be having lately. My best advice for the many issues that users are experiencing is to become a Pinteret Twitter Follower and Like them on Facebook. This is how I keep up with updates, maintenance and any technical issues/resolutions the site is publicizing. However, I am not able to answer technical questions about the sites performance or issues you are having with your account. I’ll be happy to answer any ‘how to’ questions you have in the comments section below. I will no longer be able to respond via email due to the volume of questions I receive. Please check the comments for answers as well. A lot of questions have been addressed before. Thank you!
You may also contact them at one of the email addresses below:
*****************************************************************************************************************************************
I’ve been using Pinterest for a few months now and have had some friends ask me questions about navigating the site. In case some of you have the same questions, I thought I’d answer them in a post.
If you have no idea what Pinterest is and want to know more, read this post.
To go to Pinterest, click here: http://www.pinterest.com/. Anyone can view the images. However, in order to create your own boards and pin images to those boards, you have to be a member. To become a member, you can request an invitation through their site or you can ask a current Pinterest member to send you an invitation.
Q: How do I create a new board?
A: On the top right menu bar, click [Add -> Add a board]. You can create your own board name such as ‘wedding ideas’, ‘party favors’, etc. Next choose the category the board fits into such as ‘wedding ideas’ would be categorized under the category ‘wedding + events’.
Next, you have the option to choose who can pin to your board. You can choose ‘just me’ or if you’d like multiple contributors, you can choose ‘multiple people’. Choosing ‘multiple people’ will require that you add the other
person(s) user name or email address.
Q: How do I ‘pin’ an image from the web onto a board?
A: There are a couple ways to do this. You can go to the menu bar at the top right of the Pinterest page and click [Add -> Add Pin]. From here, you can enter the URL of the website image and click ‘Pin it”.
Another option is to drag the ‘Pin it’  link to your browser toolbar or favorites. When you see an image you want to pin, from the image website, click on the ‘Pin it’ icon on your toolbar. All the images from that URL will appear in a new window, select the image you want to pin and a ‘Pin this’ button will appear. Once you click the button, you can add the pin to any of your boards.
Q: How do I search for specific types of images?
A: You can look for certain types of images by clicking on the ‘Everything’ link and selecting one of the 18 categories provided such as gifts, food + drinnk, travel, DIY, kids, etc. Another option is to typing in the search field  specifically what you are interested in such as ‘flower arrangements’ or ‘Audrey Hepburn’. This should return images where those words were used in the description of the image.
Q: How do I find and follow others boards. There are a couple ways to do this as well. You can go to the top right menu bar and choose [People -> Find Friends] and find friends via Twitter, Facebook, yahoo or gmail. You can also go to [People -> Tastemakers] to see some of the most followed members. You can choose to follow any of these listed members.
You may also choose find some interesting boards or members you’d like to follow at [Boards -> Staff Favorites]. Here, the Pinterest team has chosen some of their favorite boards. I’ve found some really interesting boards and ideas by looking at the staff favorites.
Q: How do I rearrange my boards so that my most frequently viewed are at the top (or any other arrangement)?
A: The pinterest staff has recently added this feature. Go to [Your user name -> Your Boards]. This should produce all of your boards. There is a ‘Rearrange’ button in the top right corner. Click that button, move your boards in the order you want, then click save. It’s as easy as that.

Q: How do I delete a pin or a board?
A: For either a board or a pin, you should see an ‘edit’ button when you hover over the image. Click ‘edit’ and then ‘delete (pin or board)’ in the new window that appears.

Q: How do I add a button to my blog or website?
A: To add a ‘follow me on Pinterest’ or a ‘pin it’ button to your site or blog, go to
[About -> Goodies]. From here, you can select the type of button you want. Once you select it, the embedded code will appear. Copy the code, then (I’m speaking to wordpress users because that’s what I am) add it to your  widgets. Within wordpress dashboard, go to ‘widgets’, then select a text widget to add to your sidebar (or where ever you want it) and paste the embedded code in the text area of your widget.
That covers the most frequently asked questions I’ve received. You can also follow the Pinterest blog http://blog.pinterest.com/ where they discuss pinning tips and etiquette, new site features, pinterviews (interviews with industry leading pinners), and much more.
If you have any other questions or would like an invitation to Pinterest, leave me a comment or email me at theweekendhomemaker(at)gmail(dot)com.
You can follow my pinboards at  http://pinterest.com/weekendhomie/ or by clicking on the red Pinterest button at the top of my sidebar.
Happy Pinning!

    How do I post a picture from Pinterest onto my blog? Thanks!

    • Hi Katie –

      I do it one of two ways:
      1: Simply right click on the image, then copy and paste it in your post.
      2. Right click on the image, click and save it in a folder on your hard drive. Next go to your blog and upload the image into your post the same as you would any other image.

      Hope that helps!

        Just noticed this comment while trying to figure out something on Pinterest. If you’re going to use photos from Pinterest on a blog please credit the original photographer and ask permission before using.

        • Carole
          March 1, 2013 |

          How can you ask permission to use a photo found on Pinterest since there isn’t a way to contact Pinterest users. Unless they have ID’d the photographer on their pin, how else would you be able to find out?

    Oh, how I love Pinterest! I’ll have to check you out sometime! Feel free to come by and follow me on there too:

    http://pinterest.com/organizemadefun/

    Great tips. One other I’ve found to copy a picture is to go to the “embed” code when you click on the picture and then directly put it into your post using the HTML code and it will actually put the source code directly underneath the picture for you :)

      Fabulous tip wrt Embed feature. I wanted to feature some images from one of my boards on my blog and this puts all the source code in automatically!

    • T Byrd
      October 18, 2011 |

      that is awesome. I hadnt noticed it before and I was manually putting in the source but I had been noticing that others were all in the same format lol

      It can be challenging with Pinterest as it’s kind of social network, but kind of is not! But it is addicting and great simple place to get organized with your bookmarks!

      Evernote is great, but it’s not social!

      Btw, also shameless promotion, if you are searching for great web design related pins, check out this profile – http://pinterest.com/1stwebdesigner/ – it has over 3000 pins and more than 1000 followers. Everything is about joy and good experience! Good cause isn”t it?

    I am wondering if I can join Pinterest without going through Facebook or Twitter? I have been invited by a friend (about a month ago), and I went to join, but it only gave me options to go throught FB or Twitter. I have a FB account, but I am concerned over security (my kids’ photos etc.) and I don’t have a Twitter account. Is there another way “in”?

    • You need either a facebook or twitter account to join Pinterest.

      • lindsey
        May 31, 2012 |

        i just read on the pinterest help page that you can turn of the link between you fb page and pinterest. this is helpful since we dont really have control over what is shown on there and what is not!

      • DesiGarren
        January 13, 2013 |

        I signed up with just my e-mail. If I want it on facebook I’ll put it there but I didn’t have to use it to join.

    • justlaugh3

      I was concerned as well. I just created the account and then went into my setting and clicked “unlink”. Hope this helps.

      You can go to settings on pinterest . Then account settings. You will have the option to publish to Facebook or not. Just put that on off.

    Hi-nice articile and I am off to follow you. I cannot find it so it may not exist yet-wanting to upload 20 pictures at one time from an album in my computer files. Don’t see a way to do that. Do you know some tricks I don’t?

  6. Donna Cox
    July 30, 2011 |

    I have a question that I hope you can answer. I have a facebook account that I really don’t want. Do I have to keep it in order to have my Pinterest account. If not can you tell me how I can get rid of it and keep my Pinterest.
    Thank you!

    • Hi Donna –

      You have to have a twitter or facebook account to sign up for Pinterest at this times.

        You need a Facebook account to activate a Pinterest account; however, once you’ve signed up with Pinterest you can go to your Facebook application settings and delete the Pinterest app. Then just use your email for signing into pinterest in the future.

      • Zeina
        March 22, 2013 |

        Not necessarily. You can log on to pinterest via your email address.

      I created a FB account to join Pinterest, removed the link, then deactivated the FB account. My Pinterest account works perfectly. Hope this helps.

    Do you know how to add pins without having to write a description? I’ve noticed that some people have managed to add pins without any descriptions and I have no idea how they do it.

    • .Is there something like a period {.} in their description? THat’s the only way I’ve found to get around a description. Let me know if you find another way. I’m curious.

      • Mai Chua Her

    Hello, I joined pinterest today and I’m looking forward to adding pins, but it assigned all these boards for me to follow and I don’t want to I’d like to pick my own, I click unfollow on them but they never disappear, it’s driving me nuts! Please help me…

    • Hi Lisa –

      How are you going about clicking unfollow? Did you go to Boards -> Boards you follow, and click unfollow from there? Once you click ‘unfollow’ they may still appear on the boards you folow page but you should not get feeds from them any longer. Hope that helps.

      • Indigo
        August 7, 2011 |

        I am having the same problem. None of the boards I follow are appearing, and all of those I have ‘unfollowed’ are still there with a follow button at the bottom. It is really irritating me. help!

        • I emailed Pinterest support about the issues you mentioned not being about to ‘unfollow’ boards. This was their reply:

          This is a bug that’s affecting a few others as well. We’re working on the “Boards You Follow” page now and in the mean time, you do not need to try and Unfollow these users again. Your main feed should be displaying only the pins on boards you follow.

          Sorry for the confusion and I hope that helps!

          • Susan
            November 9, 2011 |

            Add me to the swelling multitudes to can’t “unfollow” hordes of stuff I didn’t want to follow in the first place. When I see a grayed out unfollow box I click it, but it never has an effect.

            My other huge frustration with the site is that is I click on something I want to know more about, then want to return to where I was, there’s no way I can ever find that page again. I click the Back on my browser and end up either at pages I saw days ago or at pages I’ve never seen before, but never at the page I was at.

            I really enjoy the stuff on pinterest, the the needlessly complex, confusing, and overly precious process of trying to navigate makes the site essentially unusable.

        • Seu
          October 14, 2011 |

          I am having the same problem. Just joined, but Pinterest assigned me all these boards to follow (apparently from Twitter) that I did NOT pick and would not have.

          There is no obvious way to Unfollow these willy-nilly boards; there is NOTHING in “Help” about it (it says you can Unfollow them — but doesn’t tell you HOW and there is no Unfollow button– there should be); and it’s spoiling my first experience of Pinterest.

          Doesn’t it seem obvious that if I didn’t choose to follow a board, I should be able to unfollow it easily?

          The navigation is also really confusing. There should be a Home button or Profile button on every page so you can find your way back. It’s quite hard to get around.

          Everyone says they love Pinterest and I thought I would too, but trying to deal with these problems so far has not been fun. I want to start Pinterest with a clean slate but I can’t even do that: I can’t get rid of all these boards Pinterest has me following.

          Not loving it so far.

          • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
            October 15, 2011 |

            Hang in there. It was a little frustrating and hard to navigate when I first started, too. The learning curve takes about a week of just playing around and then it just ‘clicks’.

          • Peggy Williams
            November 6, 2011 |

            I am having the same problem. I joined and was having so much fun and all the sudden I got boards with porn on them in my feed. I cannot get rid of them. I have emailed the pinterest people, reported it, etc. and they are still there. They need a button to delete material on your feed you do not want there!

          • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
            November 6, 2011 |

            Click on the person’s name under the image. There will be a greyed out unfollow button (looks like you can’t click on it but you can). Click on it. You will no longer receive feeds from them. You can do the same if you only want to unfollow a particular board. Just click on the name of the board they have it pinned to (beside their name, under the image) and click unfollow.

          • S.Eastman
            January 1, 2012 |

            We had this problem today as well. Clicked through to the person’s boards and showed that we had already unfollowed. I clicked on follow and immediately clicked on unfollow and everything disappeared from the feed. Hopefully it sticks this time!

    • I emailed pinterest and this was their reply:

      This is a bug that’s affecting a few others as well. We’re working on the “Boards You Follow” page now and in the mean time, you do not need to try and Unfollow these users again. Your main feed should be displaying only the pins on boards you follow.

          I’ve tried so many times to get rid of a HUGE photography board. Don’t know how I started following it, but I can’t unfollow it. I even tried to unfollow everyone that I was following, and then adding back a few at a time. Now I only get the photography board!!!

    I am new to Pinterest and I have a problem. When I click on Your boards my boards come up. My latest board that I have pinned pictures up shows blank on this summary page of my boards. If I click on the board then the pictures do show up. Now this board I did not pin from the web, I uploaded from my computer. Did I miss a step?

    Tks for the help!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      August 11, 2011 |

      Hi Anne – It sounds like a technical problem. I would check out the help section on pinterest or email them. They are usually pretty responsive: http://pinterest.com/about/help/

    Hi – I hope it’s not too late to post a comment/question regarding Pinterest (thanks for the tips!). I am a new Pinterest user/addict. Lately when I have tried pinning photos from some blogs, the pictures will not pin to my board. I will pin them, and it says they are pinning, but they don’t seem to go to my feed, and when I look at the board, there is only a little blue square with a question mark. It is clickable, but there is no photo. This has happened with several photos that I have tried to pin from blogs. Are some photos not “pinnable?” I’ve googled this, but had little luck finding an answer. Thanks for any info!

    Hello!

    I linked back to your great FAQs today::

  13. Lisa Michnick
    September 26, 2011 |

    I attempted to upload a photo from my computer today. The first time I didn’t realize that putting the dollar sign in the comment area would cause a little flag with the amount up in the left hand top corner. So I deleted the pin and redid my upload and comment, leaving out the dollar signs. Now when I come back to Pinterest after being away, BOTH pins are appearing. I’ve tried deleting the offending pin from every place I can think of. It appears to delete, but is still there when I return to the “top” page, ie. the page that comes up when I click on the Pinterest symbol which is the same page that appears when I log back in. Can you recommend a fix or how to get help Thanks.

    do u know how to move a pin from one of your boards to another one of your boards?

    • Denise
      March 10, 2012 |

      In case you haven’t figured it out yet or if someone else is looking for the answer…..

      Click on the picture you want to move, it will enlarge in a separate pop up window and there will be an option to Edit it. Click on Edit and one of the options there is to change the board.

      • Mary
        March 11, 2012 |

        I’ve done this but then it posts to your main board again and I hate all the duplicates.

    • Kerri
      September 22, 2012 |

      In case anyone is asking this question, here is an updated answer. “How to move Pins from one Board to another?” Just click on Edit, (you no longer have to open it first) click the PickList and choose the Board you want to move it to, click Save. This will move your pin and delete it from the original Board so there are no longer duplicates.

    • Natalie
      October 21, 2011 |

      @Jin – if you click on the “follow” button that is greyed out once you follow someone, it will un-follow them. (It doesn’t look like it will click, but it will.)
      Does anyone know why a bunch of pics I’m seeing say “from None” at the top right, instead of linking to the site it came from?

    I’m new to Pinterest but I think I’m doing something wrong. When I go to repin something onto one of my boards, it only allows me to pin it to one board (and it seems random which board it directs me to). How can I repin to the board I want to?

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      October 23, 2011 |

      Hi Ginger, You should be able to click on the boards to see a drop down of board options. Choose which board you want to pin to and select ‘pin it’.

    I have a question and I hope you can help. You know how when you click on a photo and to the left you see 2 boxes. One will be the board it is pinned to and the other will be also from *insert website here*. Why do some websites have an also from but others don’t. I am trying to see what photos from my blog are pinned but I don’t have an also from. I hope that makes sense.

    Your post is so useful. Do you know if there is any way to delete a “like”? I’ve search the help section, but can’t find any mention of it. I also can’t find a contact email address to email pinterest directly. I’m hoping you might be able to throw some light on to this.

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)

      • LoeLaLoep (Heidi)
        November 3, 2011 |

        If you want to delete a ‘like’, you just follow the link (for example, where it says in your account ’5 Likes’). Now you’ll see all (in this case 5) pictures of websites/articles that you once chose to like. Just hover your mouse over the picture and you’ll notice the button ‘Liked’ (between ‘Repin’ and ‘Comment’). It’s greyed out. You only have to click on that button and see…. you only have 4 ‘Likes’ left :)

    I have been playing with Pinterest for a couple months now and am at the point that I would like to create more boards to better catergorize my pins. I am currently at 15 boards, and yesterday tried to create 2 more, but they won’t show up. If I am on the “Pins” tab of my page, the “Boards” tab shows 17, but then when I click on the “Boards” tab, the total switches to 15 and the new ones do not show up. They also don’t appear in the drop down list when I try to repin/edit. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    • trice
      December 10, 2011 |

      I am now having the exact same problem. I have tried adding a board for three days now and it appears in my list of boards but when I try to pin to it it isn’t among the list.

      Have you heard anything about this yet or have found any information? This is very frustrating.

      BTW, I’m on a Mac.

    How do i move pins that are on my board? I’d like to arrange them in order of what I like rather than the order pinned.

      Hi Cindy – I know that there is a button to rearrange boards but I do not believe there is one to rearrange pins within a board. Could be an enhancement they are working on. I encourage folks to tweet the Pinterest staff or leave a message on their facebook page to get a timely response.

    Great post! I wanted to ask – how do you move pins between boards? As I pin more, I add more boards to keep up with everything and all I’ve come up with to move the pins is repinning and deleting – there must be an easier way, no? Please let me know if you find out!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)

      To move a pin from one board to another, hover over the pin and click on ‘edit’. You’ll see fields for Description, Link, Board, Delete. Click on the drop down beside Board and select the board you want to move the pin to. Then click, ‘save pin’.

        I was successful at moving a pin to another board, as you outline above; however, I end up with it duplicated on the new board (and still on the old board). What did I do wrong?

        • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
          February 8, 2012 |

          Hi Christina – You ddn’t do anything wrong. You just need to open the pin in your old board and click edit. Then click delete.

          • Amanda
            February 8, 2012 |

            I really don’t think that’s accurate. I followed your advice and it deleted it from both the old and new board. The old board pin copy behaves like it’s the new pin, showing it in the new board and everything. It just simply leaves a ghost copy behind in the original board. I have also discovered that if you delete the original board even after moving the pin to another board, the pin gets deleted. I had to re-pin 10 things this way. A month ago I was able to move pins just fine, no ghosts left behind, so this is a new glitch of sorts.

          • McKenzie
            February 9, 2012 |

            I did this and as another commented posted, it deletes both pins (from the original and old board) So irritating! I hope they get the problem resolved soon so I can do some much needed board decluttering.

    I was wondering how you get the 5 pins to show up next to your name/photo? For example, when you look at the list of who so-and-so follows, some people have no pins next to their name with the button to hit for follow but some have 5 pins. I don’t see anywhere under edit profile or anywhere else to choose pins.

    Thanks!

    I am having problems loading the Pinterest page on my desktop computer. I don’t have any problems on my laptop, and all my other websites are working except Pinterest. All the links (Add, About, Help, Pin It Button, Invite Friends, Logout, etc.) are listed down the left side of the page in a Times New Roman-ish font, and I am unable to click on a lot of the links. What is going on? Do I need to change my security settings? I’m confused because the site works on my other computers and all other sites are working. Please help! I’m having pin withdrawls!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      November 12, 2011 |

      I’ve gotten that a few times on my desktop, too. I would leave them (Pinterest Staff) a message on their facebook or twitter pages to see if they can help answer your question.

    I have been saving my favorite things to “likes” to find them later. I have 22 likes, but the screen only shows 7 pictures. I can continue to add likes, the likes number keeps growing, but I can’t view them…any thoughts?

      Not sure why that’s happening. I would leave a message to the Pinterest staff on Facebook or Twitter.

      November 26, 2011 |

      I have been dealing with this same issues. It happens with my boards also! But when i log in on the computer it shows me the amount of pins i have but the images don’t match up but yet on the iphone app most of the repinned images are there and match the # that appears on pinterest when i am logged on from a computer….Anyone have an answer for this yet? Thanks so much :)

      • Jenny
        November 27, 2011 |

        Donna, I am having the same problem with my boards. I repinned several things to my boards on my iPhone app and they all appear correct there. However, when I access Pinterest via my iPad (just the mobile site, not the app), none of the new pins added on my iPhone app appear on my boards but they do all appear with the description that I added in my main feed. So frustrating! I tried logging out of both devices but that didn’t change anything.

      • Carrie
        November 28, 2011 |

        I’m having the same issues! Was just trying to do a google search to see if there were any answers and found this! The repinned images all show up on my iPhone, but nothing shows up on my boards on the computer – even though the number says there are more. Frustrating. I just sent a message to their “bugs” email address, we’ll see if I get a reply…

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)

    stupid question…how do I view all the items I “like” on pinterest. I show I “liked” 337 things, but only around 120 show up….this is driving me crazy…

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      November 16, 2011 |

      Hi Katie – You should be able to click on ‘likes’ under your name in the top right hand corner. However, it doesn’t appear to be working at the moment.

    • Vanessa
      June 13, 2012 |

      Katie, I am having the same issue. I have over 1,000 likes… I know, way too many… However, I can only view a fraction of them as well. It too is driving me nuts. I tend to click like when browsing on the app and then later go through them and pin what I am really interested in but, as I was trying to find something I know I “liked” a few months back I cannot view it. It only shows me a fraction of my well collected many likes.

      Are you still having this issue or did you get an answer?

When you sign up you have to use FB or twitter, however once set up go into settings and click on the “Link to Facebook/Twitter” box and it will unlink you. Not sure if this is new, but it was a suggestion for me when I set up my account.

    Hi,
    I love pinterest! I’ve been pinning up a storm, but I am very discouraged by a bug that may or may not be going on. One of my boards photos are completely gone! It says in total my pins are 149, which would include the deleted photos, because when I count the boards they do not add up to that. How do I get them back? And I can’t find a support email address on pinterest so I’m basically panicking! Please help Thanks!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      November 17, 2011 |

      Hi Lu – The best way to reach them is to comment on their Facebook or Twitter. I would also suggest following them on Twitter and Facebook. They provide updates (such as server issues, maintenance, etc) on those accounts frequently. That’s how I get the scoop on what’s going on with them.

    Thanks so much for the info on WordPress, I’ve added it and it works! I have found that some of my pins do not show photos on my boards, have you had this happen? I’ve ended up just deleting the pins that don’t show. Also, is there an easy way to move a pin from one board to another?

    Thanks!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      November 18, 2011 |

      Hi Pauline – click the edit button on the pin you want to move and then click the drop down beside ‘boards’. Select the board you want to move the pin to and then save.

    I made a board on pinterest for just recipes, but every time I go to pin something to it, it’s not on the list of possible boards. so i go to re-create the board, and it tells me that i “already have a board with that name.” Help??

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)

      November 29, 2011 |

      Or you may need to refresh the page you are viewing if you created the board on another page. Use F5 on your keyboard or hit the refresh button in your browser. Then, any newly created boards will appear.

      • Tobhiyah
        January 6, 2013 |

        I’ve had this happen too; I wonder if some/a lot of these problems have something to do with the browser you’re using too. I’ve noticed that Firefox has the AWESOME ability to go straight to a board on my drop down list when I start typing it that Chrome does not.
        When your issue has happened to me I just close out and reopen Pinterest; I’ll try the refresh next time. I just hate losing my place “(

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      November 26, 2011 |

      Hi –

      The only way to move a ‘liked’ pin to a board is to ‘repin’ it to one of you boards. There should be a ‘repin’ button in the top left corner of your ‘liked’ image. Click that then repin to one of your boards.

      Hope that helps!

    December 1, 2011 |

    Hello,
    Could you please answer a few questions for me:

    1. When i click on my “Followers” and “Following” list, the stated number of people in the category do not match up to the list — ie. it’ll read “5 Followers” but when I click on it, there are only 3 people listed. Where are the other 2?

    2. Why am I “Following” myself? When I go to “unfollow” myself, it isn’t an option. When I log in, whatever I’ve most recently pinned shows up again… I really want to see other people’s pins for ideas. How do I do that?

    3. How do I find general boards or new people to follow? There used to be a “People” category in the header, but that seems to have disappeared. What am I missing?

    Thank you so much for any and all help you can provide me!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      December 1, 2011 |

      Hi Debbi – I’ll try to answer the best I can. Maybe others could weigh in as well or you could contact Pinterest (see the top of this post for contact info).

      1. Sounds like a technical issue and Pinterest would have to resolve.
      2. If you are following others, you should be able to see their pins when you are at the ‘pinners you follow’ page. It will also show your most recent pins but if you are following others, then you should see their pins. Maybe you should follow more people so you can see more pins???
      3. Click on your name in the top right of the screen and then ‘find friends’. There is a list of ‘Friends on Pinterest’. You can select any of those to follow. You can also go to the ‘everything’ board and click on any pin and select the name of the person that pinned that pin. That will take you to all of their boards and you can decide if you would like to follow them or not by selecting the ‘follow’ button under their name.

      Hope this helps!

    Does pinterest have a messaging feature that I’ve been missing?

    How do I check this message and reply??

    Thanks for any and all feedback.

      Hi Andrea – Yes, anyone can leave a comment on a pin. If you have checked that option on your profile to receive messages about comments, you will receive an email. When you click on the link in the email, it should take you to that pin and you can read the comment someone left. If you want to reply, leave a comment under their comment.

    when I got to press the repin button, it just takes me to the top of the page. I can not pin to my board. Any suggestions?

    When I click on some people, it shows that they have like 5 different boards, but not a single pin (when I know that isn’t possible, considering who the person is)…is there a way to make your pins not visible to those that aren’t following you?

    My daughter and I both have boards on pinterest but she can’t find mine and I can’t find hers!! What are we doing wrong? Also, have had no luck pinning from picture files on my computer. Keep getting the blue question mark in a box!

    Hi! Sometimes when I post pins it doesn’t show as shared. When I scroll down to my pins, I do see the pins I posted. Have any idea why or how I can fix this problem so that I can see the pins I post?
    Thanks

      I have had that problem on occassion lately. I just like the pin so I can remember it and then come back to it later and try to repin.

    The photos for my pins from etsy.com haven’t been showing up for about a week now. Every time I try to post something that is on etsy.com, the photo doesn’t show up. The only way I’ve found around it is to save the photo and upload it straight to pinterest, which is aggravating.

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      December 14, 2011 |

      I’ve had the same problem tryig to pin images from certain websites but haven’t noticed it to be Etsy in particular. I’ll test it and see if I have the same trouble.

  100. Jackie
    December 13, 2011 |

    I have to constantly select “Follow” on the same people over and over again, why doesn’t it save it? I will either click “Follow All” or I click “Follow” by each name but when I get out of the Find Friends page and go back in all of the same people are there again to select to follow, why are they not getting added to the “friends I am already following”?

    I’ve been googling for info about pinterest for awhile..glad I found this! I’ve noticed a lot of bugs since I’ve been an active member, which makes the experience a little different than when I was just browsing while waiting for my invite. I assume there is a lot of maintenance and upkeep for a site that is so popular so fast so I overlook most problems BUT I do have to ask if anyone else is having trouble with being logged off- A LOT?! It is making it impossible to enjoy my fav website. Please comment if any of you are having this problem too so I will know if it is just on my end or not. Thanks

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      December 14, 2011 |

      Jennifer – What do you mean logged off? Does that mean you have to log in everytime you return to the site? If so, I’ve experienced that a few times but I wouldn’t say it’s a recurring problem for me.

  102. Jennifer
    December 14, 2011 |

    I mean logged off every few min/sec. not having problems on any other sites or with my pc. was hoping I wasn’t the only one having this problem so I would know it’s just another bug. I sent a message to the bug email address.. nothing yet. Thanks

  103. Amy
    December 15, 2011 |

    My menu bar isn’t the same as your. I have “Add” “About” & “Amy”. I don’t have “People”, so I’m missing out on some valuable ways to interact in pinterest. Is there a setting I’m missing or something? I can’t find anywhere to change things.

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      December 15, 2011 |

      Hi Amy – Yes, there site has changed since I wrote this post in May. I now have the same as you: Add, About, & Crystal.

  104. DevinLynn

    Why doesn’t pinterest update who follows you? I get emails saying people are following me but when I look they aren’t on there.

  105. Sylver Blaque
    December 15, 2011 |

    This is a great, informative post – thank you! I’d like to add something I just discovered: while you can easily add a Pinterest Follow Me button to a WordPress.com blog, it’s not yet possible to add the Pinterest share button (the one that allows visitors to your blog to share your posts on Pinterest) because of the Javascript in the HTML coding. There’s no work-around for this issue, but tons of WordPress.com bloggers are in the forums asking for this share button. WordPress is terrific at trying hard (and fast!) to accommodate blogger requests, so I’ll bet they’ll allow us this share button soon enough. As it stands now however, the only way for visitors to share your posts is by logging into their Pinterest account & pinning your post to their boards from there (or using the Pin It bookmark in their toolbar, if they have it). Happy pinning! : – >

    I have been on pinterest for a few months now, and have well over 100 pins, however under my “pins” it only shows the most recent 25 pins. So my pins show up in my boards but not in my general “pins” section. Does anyone know how to correct this? Thanks

    For now I have been resorting to the repin button off of the catergories I am interested in.

        There is a new Pin It app for the iPhone… type in Pinterest in the App Store and it should be the second choice that pops up. It is brand new and has no stars so far. I downloaded it last night. I have yet to see if it works.

    December 31, 2011 |

    Can’t figure out what’s up … sometimes when I upload from my computer archives it appears on the board as a blue question marked within a box. Does it have something to do with not having a link attatched to it? Have tried deleting the offending image, gone back into my library and tried to repin again … same thing. When you click on the question mark it will bring up the image on the chosen board … but when I’m viewing my boards all together I’d like to be able to tell what I’ve already uploaded, so that I don’t keep repeating the same pin. Frustrating, but otherwise having a great time of it! Thanks for any info. you might have on this problem.

    love, love, love pinterest … been on for quite a while, but …:

    1. when i pin pins, sometimes the image does not show, instead, the error says, *photo of a pin,* but no photo …. how to remedy this?

    2. i have a board i created, even emailed the pinterest staff about this last month but have not heard from them, and i want to remove this board but i get a *404* … not accessible .. how do i remove it?

    thanks for all the great tips …

      Hi Darlene – To delete a board, go to your boards and click the ‘edit’ button at the bottom your board. This will open an edit board window. Select ‘Delete Board’. This should remove the board.

      • darlene
        January 6, 2012 |

        that does not work; i still get the *404* … it’s like the board is locked … like i said, i emailed pinterest about it but received no reply … i can’t get into the board, can’t delete it .. BUT i can add to it if i want … go figure ….

        also, how come i, and others, get *photo of a pin* when we pin?

        • Zoe Parks
          February 28, 2012 |

          Me too! I’m so frustrated. I’ve uploaded 12 images and only 1 of them has the actual image on the board. I and others have to click on the words “photo of a pin” to actually see the single images. But, the board looks really unattractive with just words. The images all belong to me, taken by myself. I’ve tried to pin them directly from my blog and also uploading them directly from my computer. No luck!

          • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
            February 29, 2012 |

            Hi Zoe – I’m not sure what the issue is. I am able to pin things from my blog and my husband was able to upload images from the computer to his account today. Did you resize your images so they aren’t so large?

  124. Kelly
    January 8, 2012 |

    I was wondering if anyone knew why the pins I post straight from my computer (things I have done myself not stealing credit) show up as an unloadable picture. It will complete the pin but when I look at it the picture is an empty box with a blue x…please help this is really irritating!

  125. Marilyn
    January 9, 2012 |

    I hope you can help me. I’ve emailed Pinterest several times—with no results. Someone has created a Pinterest account with my email address. I can’t seem to get Pinterest to delete the account. Of course, I can’t email the person since she’s using my email address. And of course, I can’t delete or edit the account, since I don’t know her password. Please help.

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      January 9, 2012 |

      Sorry to hear that. I would suggest posting a message on the Pinterest Facebook or Twitter pages. That way, it is public and they might be more likely to respond/resolve the issue quickly.

    I received an e-mail telling me that my “Outdoor Space” pinboard was categorized by (a stranger to me) as belonging to “Outdoors”. There was a link for me to change it. What the heck is this all about???? I’m new to Pinterest and don’t understand what to do. Hope you understand – cause this is driving me crazy!!!!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      January 18, 2012 |

      Hi Mary –

      Categorizing boards is a way of making sure boards are assigned to the correct category so that when someone searches in a particular category, your board will show up. When you create a board, you have the ability to choose a category. If you don’t, others can categorize it for you. If you don’t like the category they choose, you can go to your board and click ‘edit’. Then choose the category you would like. It doesn’t bother me when others categorize my boards because I don’t always remember to do it when I create a new board. I know that by having the board categorized, it helps more people be able to find it when they search by category.

      • Mary
        January 19, 2012 |

    I am trying to change the title of a board. I fill in the space for the new title and then I need to scroll down a list to “Select a category” (Art, Beauty, Products, etc) I click on the category that my board fits, and it always says “Category invalid”.. I’ve tried every category, and it is preventing me from changing the name of my board.

    January 18, 2012 |

    Many of my friends have this problem, so I told them I would research to find the answer…maybe you can help :) . When I click on pinterest.com, I see all kinds of stuff I want to pin. First, I have to sign in, but once I do that, the original page doesn’t reload, it’s another page! Even if I click “everything” it never goes back to that original first page. Any reasons for this, or anyway around it?

    Thanks!!!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      January 18, 2012 |

      Hi Teri –

      I’ve wondered about this same thing myseld and unfortunatley, don’t have an answer on how to get back to that exact rotation of pictures. My suggestions (and what I do) is if there is a particular image I am interested in, I copy or write down the description so that I can do a searh on that exact description to locate the pin I am interested.

      • Teri
        January 18, 2012 |

        Thanks for your input! I have copied exact descriptions, but sometimes even that gets tedious and time consuming. It’s such a weird glitch…one I hope they fix! Again, thanks for your time.

    • danielle
      January 24, 2012 |

      What I do is open a new tab and use that to sign in. Once you are signed in you can close this tab. Then I navigate to the original page, and right click on each pin I want to repin opening it in a new tab. Then refresh the pin you want to repin and you should be logged in on that page and can repin to your hearts content. It seems tedious, but I like the full on window for writing a description.

  137. Jayla
    January 19, 2012 |

    It shows that I only have 14 followers, but when I click there to see who my followers are, I have over 50. Anybody know why it’s not showing correctly on my board and if there’s any way to fix it?

    Also, once I have a Pinterest account, is there a waiting period before I can give an Invitation?

    And is there a limit to how many invitations I can give? (Not that I’m planning to give a lot, I just don’t want to be surprised by a limit after it’s too late to change who I’ve invited.)

    Thanks for all the help you’ve given all the people above!

      Just sent you an invitation. I think you should receive an invitation pretty quickly after someone invites you (within a day). To my knowledge there is no limitation on the number of invitations you can give. I’ve been giving them out for about 6 months and haven’t reached a max.

    Question: If I repin something that I think a Facebook friend would like how could I message it to them?

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      January 28, 2012 |

      Great question, Anita. When you click the repin button, a new windo opens. In the bottom right of the window is a check box for Facebook. Click that check box. In the comment section, type “@your friend’s name” (example: @Joe Shmoe) as it appears on Facebook and your comment. When your pin posts to facebook, your friend should be tagged and receive a notification.

    Do you know if it’s possible to pin something onto somebody else’s pinboard? My sister is getting ready for a wedding and she wants me to post stuff to her page.

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      January 31, 2012 |

      Hi Carly –

      Yes, you can pin something on someone else’s board or vice versa. They will need to select the board they would like for you to pin to and click ‘edit board’. This will open a second window. Where it reads ‘who can pin?’, it is defaulted to ‘just me’. Have your sister select ‘me + contributors’. When she selected ‘me + contributors’ a new field will appear that read ‘name’. She needs to type in your Pinterest User Name. Then click ‘save settings’.

      Hope that helps!

    First of all, I think it’s great the depth you have gone to try to answer people’s questions. I only wish the actual site at Pinterest was that easy. There support is TERRIBLE!! I do not care how “busy” they are. If you do not help people, they get turned off-Period! Customer Service is very key. I have heard that they are going through growing pains- well with these “pains” they are going to lose “Pingers”. I signed up recently- what a to do that was! Now I can’t Pin anything! I can see everyone elses things and I can Like thngs, but I can’t actually do anything. I have read it could be to do with the fact I use Explorer- to me thats a cop out! So, until they can better deal with issues I am NOT a fan so far. I want to be- don’t get me wrong- but my frustrations with the site have left me feeling flat! Just being honest! But love all that you have done in this posting- so thanks!

    Any idea on how to unlink everything I post on Pinterest from getting posted to Facebook? Every time I go to the settings page and click on the box to not connect the two, it doesn’t work. It goes right back to sharing everything on Facebook. I have emailed Pinterest a few weeks ago and have heard nothing.

    Hi Crystal – I had a question for you. I’m setting up a page for my work on my travel inspirations, separate from my personal pinterest account. I sent the “invite” request to my work address. I accidently signed in to my facebook using my personal and now I don’t know how to link it to my work facebook instead. Any thoughts on how to correct this? Thanks!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 5, 2012 |

      Stephanie –

      I’m not 100% sure but you may need to de-activate your ‘work’ pinterest account and then sign back up again using your work facebook (is that what you were trying to do – did I get that right??) After you de-activate, let me know if you need me to send you another invitation.

      • stephanie
        February 6, 2012 |

        Hi Crystal – thanks for responding back! I can get to the login screen now. I signed with the correct email address (and facebook account). On the last screen where I enter the username/password/etc. when I hit submit it does to a ’404 error’ message and says that the page cannot be found. Then, I cannot login because I haven’t completed this final setup.

        Is something going on with Pinterest today? Or should something that I did cause this error message?

        Thanks for your help!

    I joined Pinterest about 2 months ago and absolutely love it. I like to sit in bed with my iPad browsing boards before I go to bed. But the last few days it has been giving me problems. I’m only able to see two boards after I do a search. Anyone else having this issue or ok’d help. It works fine on my iPad but not on my iPad or main computer like it was before.

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)

      Carrie – I think I may have done the same thing (un-linked) my account. I am somehow still able to access the iPhone Pinterest app, but when I try to login via Safari on my iPhone, iPad or PC, no luck. If sending another invitation worked, please let me know. Thanks!!

    Crystal – You are so helpful! I just signed up for Pinterest (thru Twitter) and am unable to find anyone. I am searching for their Pinterest username, Facebook name, Twitter name…it’s impossible. I have done it through the general Pinterest Search Engine (both boards & people). I also go into account -> find friends. It takes me to Facebook which I do not have because I am completely anti. There are no other options to find friends. The help on Pinterest is virtually non-existant. Also – my sister tried for over an hour today to find me (via the same search methods) to no avail. Do you know how I can find people I know are on there? Your help is much appreciated!!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 5, 2012 |

      You can find friends (or aquaintances) if you are friends with them on Facebook. Since you don’t have a Facebook account, you would need to know their Pinterest user name. For example, my Pinterest user name is weekendhomie and my Pinterest boards are located at https://pinterest.com/weekendhomie/. So if you know their Pinterest user name, you can use the url and replace my user name with theirs. Other than knowing their Pinterest username or Facebook, I don’t know of another way to search and find people.

    Is anyone else have a problem deleting a pinterest account? When I click the delete button it just takes me back to the top of the page and does not delete the account. I hate that there is no pricavy on pinterest. Anyone can follow you and see your followers.

    WOW! Lots and Lots of Info! I tried to look for the answer before asking this, but didn’t see it…is there a way to block someone from following you? I have a few ppl that are following me that I would really like to remove from my followers. Is that possible?

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 8, 2012 |

      Unfortunately, the answer is no, you can not block someone from following you at this time. I don’t know if it might be a feature that Pinterest adds in the future. It would be nice.

    Hi Crystal
    Can you upload a pinterest board to a blog? I have tried to us save picture but it it just saves the nearest pin and not the whole board? Have tried using link/html function but it comes up with only the link not the board in picture form. Many thanks

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 9, 2012 |

      hmmm.. not sure that is possible. Best bet may be to take a screen shot and crop out anything you don’t want, only leaving the board. You could then hyperlink to your actual board.

  174. Rachel
    February 9, 2012 |

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 11, 2012 |

      Oh no! I think you may have to create a new account if it is not recognizing your email/password. I would create a new acct using facebook and see if it pulls up your old boards.

    how do i get my pin that I uploaded to show up in the DIY & Crafts section? When I upload it, it seems like only my friends and followers can see it! How do I get it to show up for everyone to see!? Or maybe it is and I’m just missing something! I love making crafts and things for the home and would love to post my ideas!
    Thanks

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 11, 2012 |

      Hannah –

      Open your board that you have pinned the pin to. At the top of the board, click ‘edit board’. Select the category that you want the pins in this board to show up on (such as DIY & Crafts). This is called categorizing a board.

    Hi, I want to see all of my friend’s pinterest posts on my Facebook news feed. I think I hid pinterest back a long time ago and that may be the issue, but I can’t figure out how to unhide and see everyone’s pins. Any thoughts?

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 16, 2012 |

      Go to your profile on pinterest and select ‘settings’. Be sure the box is checked for ‘link to facebook’. When you repin a pin, check the ‘facebook’ box to make sure the pin is shared on facebook. Hi Kathi – I haven’t experience these issues. Hopefully they’ll figure it out!

      • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
        February 16, 2012 |

        Oops – I just re-read your question. I don’t think there is any way that you can ensure you see your friends pins on Facebook. That depends on whether your friends choose to share their pins on facebook.

    February 17, 2012 |

    Just curious, been using Pinterest for a while now, and just recently I noticed that when you go to pin something, there is a number next to the pin it button. I was wondering if you knew what that number meant. I notice when I change the description of the pin, the number changes. It’s usually a number in the 400′s but I don’t understand what it’s purpose is. For instance today when I started deleting the description that someone else had saved the numbers started going up. Would love to be enlightened!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 18, 2012 |

      Hi Debbie –

      I have never paid that number any attention until reading your comment. My first thought was perhaps that is the number of times it has been repinned, but when I started changing the description, the number went down. I have no clue what it means – anyone else know??

      • Lizzie
        March 1, 2012 |

        I believe it’s the number of characters available for the description. I think it starts with 500. If you type anything, it shows how many characters you have left.

      • brittanie
        March 3, 2012 |

        It is the number of allowed characters remaining. You can only have 500 characters in the description, so the number starts at 500 (when you have nothing in the description) and counts down towards 0 to let you know how many characters you have remaining.

    Hello,

    I’ve been having a problem with Pinterest, and after emailing support 4 times over the last 3 months and receiving no response I’m looking for help elsewhere. It’s showing that I am following 2 and have -2 followers (yes, that’s right- NEGATIVE two followers). I really don’t care what my numbers are, but the people I follow don’t show up on my home page unless I go directly to their boards and I think the problems are linked. Do you have any idea what the problem might be and how I can fix it? I would greatly appreciate any help. The customer service at Pinterest is horrible!

    Thanks- Morgan

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 18, 2012 |

      Yikes! That is odd to have negative followers. I’v never heard of that and unfortunately, have no idea how to resolve. Have you tried posting your issue on their twitter or facebook page? You may get a response from them or from someone else who has had the same issue.

      • Morgan
        February 23, 2012 |

        No, I don’t use FB and only signed up for twitter to get a Pinterest account. Hopefully they will work out whatever kinks are causing this to happen, and in the mean time I’ll just deal with it. Thanks for replying! : )

    hi crystal – thanks for all the info. just a quick question – do you know how to see who is following your boards? i know how to see who is following me, but the # following me and the # following each of my specific boards is different and i would like to see who is following my boards only. i don’t see any option to see this info. any ideas?
    thanks!!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 22, 2012 |

      I do not know how to see who is following a particular board. Unlike your total follower number, the number of followers for each board is not a clickable link. Most likely, whoever is following your boards is a subset of your total followers.

  195. Helene

    February 20, 2012 |

    Hi Crystal,

    Great info here. My question is that I’d like to delete and edit (move the pins from one board to another) quite a few of my original boards. Will this effect the 1K plus followers? Thank you so much!

    Annie

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 22, 2012 |

      It shouldn’t affect your followers if you are just moving pins to a different board. However, if you delete a board, it could affect the number of followers you have. Check the number of followers on the board you want to delete. Is it greater than the number of total followers you have, or less than. If it’s less than, chances are it is a subset of your total followers (meaning people have mostly selected to follow all of your boards and not just that board in particular). You shouldn’t lose many total followers if the number of followers on your board is less than your total followers.

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 22, 2012 |

      Not knowing what you’ve already tried, here is my recommendation: You should be able to find your friend if you are friends with each other on Facebook by going to your login at the top right of the screen. When you click on your profile name, a drop down box should appear. Click on ‘find friends’. You should see two columns of people. The first column is people who you are friends with on facebook that are NOT members of Pinterest. The second column is a list of people who you are friends with on Facebook and who are on Pinterest, but you are not yet following. Search through the second column to find your friend. Then click ‘follow’.

    trying to upload a pin (pic from my desktop) and it won’t load. I’ve uploaded several other pics but can’t figure out why I can’t uplaod any more. What is the number on the “upload a pin” menu by the Pin It button. Usually it says 500. What does that mean?

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 22, 2012 |

      I’m not sure why you’re not able to upload if you have been able to do so in the past. Is the image that is giving you the error, larger in size than the others you uploaded? Maybe try compressing the file to see if that would work. As for the 500, another reader just found this out and shared it with me the other day (thanks, Deborah!). That is the number of characters allowed in the decription. As you type in characters, the number decreases to let you know how many allowable characters you have remaining.

    February 22, 2012 |

    Hi Chrystal! Late to the party, but I’m hoping you may have some insight here, as I am not on Facebook and can’t post any questions I may have there. Anyway, I got all excited last night because something I pinned just “took off” (I know, I need a life…) Within a few minutes it had been repinned close to 250 times and liked over 70 times. This morning, the number of repins is down to 73 and the likes are at 20-something. Have you encountered anything like that before – do you suppose it’s just a glitch? Thanks for your help with all of us newbies!

    • Kaille
      February 22, 2012 |

      Just adding an apology for misspelling your name – with a name like mine, you’d think I’d pay more attention! Also, just wanted to say that I have emailed Pinterest about this, but if my past experiences are any indication, I won’t hear back from them. So I thought I’d try asking you. Thanks again :)

      • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
        February 22, 2012 |

        LOL. No apology necessary. I’ve seen it spelled every way possible. Multiple people can see it and pin it so depending on which pin you are looking at, the numbers may appear differently. Is this a pin from your blog, and image you uploaded or something you re-pinned?

  203. Michele
    February 22, 2012 |

    Hi Crystal, thanks for starting this board, very helpful to those of us just starting to use Pinterest. I have what may be a stupid question, but here goes. If you click on a picture on someones board, how do you get back to where you were without hitting the back button. There is no “x” to close out the picture you are viewing, nor are there any links to click to take you where you want to go. Is the only the back button? thanks!!!

    February 23, 2012 |

    Thanks for your answers! Can you tell me how to pin to someone else’s board? (whether I am re-pinning, pinning from a website or uploading it myself). Tried finding the answer on pinterest, but no luck.

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)

      To pin to someone else’s board, they have to give you ‘rights’ by making it a group board and add your name as a contributor. There is nothing you can do unless they give you those rights.

  206. Pat R.
    February 23, 2012 |

    Okay – I have another question!

    As of last night, I cannot see anything – none of my boards, none of those that I follow, nothing in “Everything”, nor any of the specific boards.

    This is occurring on Google Chrome and on IE9, but not on my EVO 4G.

    Any assistance is appreciated!

      Sorry, Pat. That sounds very frustrating. Unfortunately, that sounds like a tech issue with either your connection or with Pinterest.

    Since approximately Feb 8 I no longer can pin on my iPhone and have the pin link to the web site. It says uploaded by user. On another blog I read that other pinners are having the same problem. I emailed pinterest help but no response …. I called apple and they said it sounds like a problem with the app… Does anyone know about this problem and hopefully when will it be corrected?

    How do I view who is following just my boards I are where it gives me a number of how many people are following it but I don’t know how to see who those people are. Could you help me?

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 27, 2012 |

      You can only see the total number of people following you, not individual boards. Go to your boards and click the clickable link that is your total number of followers to see all of the people who are following you.

    Im having a problem while uploading my images to pinterest…They seem to loose a lot of color and become very washed out, this does not happen when I upload them to facebook, so I am wondering what is the best file to use when uploading images to pinterest, I could really use some advice!!!!!!!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)

    I’ve been on Pinterest for about a week now and was just wondering how some people have like 78 followers with like 2 pins??? When opening an account do followers get pulled from your Twitter and FB accounts??? Just wondering!!!

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 27, 2012 |

      I believe when new members sign up, Pinterest recommends people to follow. I’m not sure how or who they try to match up, maybe there is some sort of Facebook or geographic connection – not sure.

    Hi Crystal, thanks for all the help with Pinterest. we are not able to get our pins onto our Facebook timeline. We have all the settings correct in Pinterest and we see that Pinterest is installed on FB. When we pin, there is a checkbox for Twitter, which works fine, but no box for Facebook. Any ideas? We’ve tweeted Pinterest to try and get support but not luck.

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 27, 2012 |

      I just linked Pinterest to Facebook timeline (your comment reminded me that I hadn’t done that yet – so thanks!). Then I re-pinned something on Pinterest. There was no check box for Facebook (like I’ve seen previously). However, when I checeked my Facebook, the pin appeared under ‘recent activity’. Try again and then check your facebook timeline under recent activity.

  216. Rosa
    February 27, 2012 |

    Hi, I just want to know why in my pins I don’t see the like or the follow. Need to know. I just want to know for the people the wants to follow me.

    Hello. I just started using Pinterest last week, but i already have a problem with my account. :\ At first I was confused about how to set up my profile, so i signed up using my facebook and added a personal email and password. That account automatically added/ followed all my Facebook friends that had Pinterest. However i’m not exactly sure what i did, but when i logged off and tried to log back on, Pinterest asked me to log in and input my email and a password (as if i were creating a new account. I followed the directions and appears that now i have another account (with a different user name). I’m quite positive that i signed up with the same email and password (but with a different username than my first account), and this new account that i made allowed me to follow facebook friends that i choose to follow. Now i have two accounts, but i would like to delete my first account. I have no idea how to log on to my first account because the email and password i signed up with only leads me to me second account. I know for a fact that my first account is still active because I can check through other friends’ pinterest that they are following my first account. I hope this makes sense and I’m hoping that someone has an answer to this complicated problem. :\

  219. pam
    February 27, 2012 |

    also should i hide my pintrest from my search engines?

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 28, 2012 |

      that’s a personal choice. If you have a blog or business you would like to promote, you may not want to hide pinterest from search engines in order to drive traffic to your sites. If you use pinterest for personal use, you may prefer to hide your pins/boards for privacy reasons.

  221. Yviemarie
    February 27, 2012 |

    I hope you can help. I can’t find anywhere online an answer!

    I want to unfollow everyone (due to the suggested followers that are automatically done when you sign up) but even though I have clicked to their profile and then clicked to unfollow them, the images are still showing up on the “images from pinners you follow” board. Annoying!

    Also, it seems Pinterest has had an upgarde, and there is no list fto see who you follow, or who follows you. I manually typed in http://pinterest.com/yoyvie/following/ which takes you to what looks like the old place that you could see the list, which is now unavailable.

    How can I see who I am following?

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 28, 2012 |

      Unfortunately, I don’t know of a list of people you follow. I would have suggested what you did which was going to their profile and unfollowing. Sounds like that’s not working. Anyone have suggestions?

  222. pam
    February 27, 2012 |

    ok i foubd out that you cant rearrange pins… i dont understand why… if you can move pictures…and you can move boards whynot pins?phasis

    Thank you for these FAQ’s and your wonderful helpful suggestions!

    I have a question: I’ve gotten 6 “likes” on various individual pins, but on the top banner, it still shows zero likes. Is there something I need to do to make the Likes visible?

    • Crystal (theweekendhomemaker)
      February 29, 2012 |

      The ‘likes’ at the top the top of your boards (beside the number of followers and the number you are following) represents the number of pins you have liked. There is no representation for the total amount of likes you have received on a pin.

      • Karen

    February 29, 2012 |

    Hi Crystal –
    Do you know if there is an easy way to see comments someone makes on your pins? I know that you can see it briefly in the “Recent Activity” area of the main screen. However if you missed it in that area, is there a way to retrieve it. Thanks! :-)

    • Kim – you should get an email when someone comments on your pin if you have that chosen in your settings. go to Settings-> Notification->email settings. Then select what you want to receive emails for.

  229. Siobhan
    March 1, 2012 |

    How do I receive/find notifications about when a friend tags or mentions me in a pin. I was able to find it a while back but no longer am able to…

    March 2, 2012 |

    Is there a fast way to move pins from one board to another board?

    HI–
    I have a friend who has asked me to pin stuff on her board…how do I do that?

    • Dawn –

      She will have to make sure that she chooses ‘me + contributors’ under ‘who can pin’ on her board(s). Once she does that, her board should appear as one of your boards and you can then pin to it.

    thks!

    • Elle – Click on edit board. THere is a drop down menu for ‘Category’. Choose the category you want to label the board and click ‘save’.

    • Pauline
      January 13, 2013 |

      Yes, you can edit your pins and that way change the board.

    I am new to pinterest…just trying to figure it out! Sometimes I will google pinterest to get to the site. When the site opens, I always see several things that I would love to pin. Of course I can’t pin them, because I am not logged in yet. When I go to log in, I can’t find them! I search what I think they may be listed under…but to no avail! I feel like I am missing something really easy here!!!??
    Thanks!

    • Yes, that is frustraing. Try pinning the pin even though you are not logged in. Once you try to repin, it will ask for your log in info.

For example when I pin smth on the board “DIY” I can’t see this image in the list of “diy & crafts” in “Everything”, although I put the category to this board “diy & crafts”.
    Hope you will help me,

    Hi, I want to start a Pinterest group where my fans can upload images. I have 2 questions for you.

    1) Is there a way to put an approval filter? I don’t want people to post inappropriate images and would like to review the images before they are live in my group. 2) Can I block certain people from posting?
    3) Can I remove people from my group?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Amit – To my knowledge, there is not an approval filter. You choose the people you want to contribute, so if you don’t invite them to be a contributor to the board, then they can’t add anything. Yes, you can go to the board, click edit and remove them from the list of contributors.

    Hello. Thanks for the wonderful information you are providing for Pinterest users. I have a question:
    How do you post to someone else’s board? A comment on someone’s board said in order to pin on the board you have to follow it. I’ve done that but I’m not sure what to do next. Thanks!

    • Hi Cheryl – To be able to pin on someone else’s board, they have to set you up as a contributor to their board. The owner of the board will need to go to the board and click ‘edit board’. Beside ‘who can pin’, they’ll need to select ‘Me + Contributors’ and add your Pinterest username. Hope this helps!

  259. Linda Vich

    When I click on ‘everything’ am I seeing everything pinned recently on all of Pinterest ? I want to see as much as I can. Do all pins go to ‘everything’ or am I limited to a board category?

    March 23, 2012 |

    Hi Crystal,

    I’m having the same problem as Elle(on March 7th) and Kira(on March 10th) I will pin something and see it on my board just fine, but when I go to DIY/Crafts it’s not there or one pin will show up and then the rest of my pins just go to my personal board. I have my boards set up to go to specific categories. It’s almost like Pinterest let’s only one of your pins to go to the main site and all the other pins for the day just go to your board. I sent an email to Pinterest over a week ago and still have no answer. Today I pinned a wreath I made (1st pin of the day) and it never showed up on DIY/CRAFTS. Very frustrating when you want other people to see your pins not just your followers. Have you experienced this problem? Thanks!

    • I’m not sure what Pinterest’s algorithm is for posting images on their general category boards.

    • Anna
      March 25, 2012 |

    March 28, 2012 |

    Hi Crystal.

    I am wondering who exactly is seeing my pins that I post? Is it the whole pinterest community in general? Or just certain boards? Also, I noticed some boards under the “everything” category like “science”, “geek”, “outdoors” and I would love it if I could pin things to those boards where those people would appreciate them, as opposed to most of the pins I see which are almost always jewellery, shoes, clothes etc. I’m basically wondering who/how many people are seeing my pins and how or if I can get my pins on a specific board where it will fit in. Thank you so much if you can clear this up for me!

    • Hi Jill – The whole pinterest community can see your pins. Go to the board you want to categorize and click ‘edit’, choose the category you would like your board to be in and click save. You can’t pin on others boards unless they asign you as a contributor.

  273. Mara

    I apologize if this has been asked, I did scan through all the posts :)

    I added a pin (from my own computer) and it ended up in my own boards (Pininterest gave me 5). I figured out how to add it to the Everything category of “Food & Drink” but it is not there? I have no idea how to upload my own image to appear in that category.

    Also don’t know how to make my pin appear if someone searches for “macaron?”

    Thanks in advance for your help – I’ve been trying for an hour now!

    • you will need to categorize the whole board that the pin is in as ‘food & drink’. In your pin’s description use a hashtag in front of the word people might search on (ie #macaron).

    I’m experiencing some issues when trying to link my pins to my Facebook timeline, my account is linked, but my pins aren’t showing up, glitch maybe?

    • When you pin an image, is the Facebook box checked in the bottom right corner of the ‘pin it’ window?

        I was looking for how to pin a picture from Pinterest to Facebook (not automatically every time as it floods my Facebook & I don’t necessarily want everyone on FB to see what I’m pinning; just when something is exceptional or I want to share it with a friend). I don’t see a Facebook box when pinning…any ideas please? I’ve been reading your blog for about an hour now; great site! It would be wonderful if you had a search feature to go straight to what you’re looking for & might reduce repeat questions :) Thanks again & great job!

          I turned on the -sign on with FB- option and the option box is showing up now when I pin. Looks like it’s automatically checked though so it’s an extra step to un-check it; not too big of a deal unless you’re like me and pin 100 things a minute lol

    When I click on a photo from my computer to upload it, a security warning box opens asking if I want to save this file or find a program online to open it. It is a .jpeg file- do you jnow why this is happening? The box says it is an unknown file type. Can you help me? Thanks

    I have already saved a ton of photo favorites over the past year from various sites on the web; is there a way to “pin” them from “My Documents” in WORD? (So I can delete and free up space on my PC.) Or can I not do that because it will not have a site to cite?

    • You can upload images from your pc. Click on the ‘Add +’ button at the top right corner of Pinterest, then click ‘upload a pin’, then click ‘browse’ and find the image on your pc to upload.

    How come when i pin things i don’t see them on the pinterest homepage? i have my boards set up to there but they are not showing up.

    I emailed Pinterest about this but they never responded. If I leave a comment on someone’s post I then get 500 emails about the other people who have also commented. There has got to be a way to turn this off but I can’t figure it out.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the info.

    I have a quick question. I wanted to pinterest some images on the Mens Apparel section. How can i do that? I tried to pinterest but it is showing only on my board and if i click home page i can see only my images and my following images.

    • You will have to categorize your board that contains the pin in the ‘mens apparel’ category. To make it easily searchable, use a hashtag # in your description (example #pinstripepants).

    I’m new to pinterest and today I pinned a photo I took myself and placed it under my favorite billboards. I don’t have any followers but I’ve had 50+ people either repin it or say they liked it.
    My question is, if they aren’t following me, how did they see it? Where would it be placed in the categories on the main page?
    Thanks for your help!

    • Micki –

      All pins appear on the ‘Everything’ board. There is an algorithm that determines what pins appear at the top and your pin must have been visible on the Everything board. Several people probably saw it and liked it and therefore it appeared on their boards where others saw it. Must have been a cool photo!

    I’m having a problem uploading pins from my Kindle Fire. I click the image to upload and the circle just spins and spins. Everything was working fine until a couple of weeks ago, but now it is completely impossible. I have contacted Pinterest, but have not received a reply. Is anyone else having this problem?

    • I don’t have a Kindle fire so can’t answer issues pertaining to that device. However, I have noticed some technical issues with the site in the past few days.

    I have a question, I am finding things on pinterest on the diy spot but i’m not sure how to find out how to do them when i click on them it just brings up the picture and i can follow that person or repin it.. can you help me out?1

    • Are you clicking on the link in the top right corner of the image? Clicking this link should take you to the source unless the image was upload from the pinners computer.

  298. Dorothy
    April 15, 2012 |

    Has this problem been addressed yet? Moving a pin to another board? When I first started I only made one board and pinned everything to it…which was a mistake I know now. I really want to move things around to make it more organized. Can I do this yet?
    Thanks,
    Dorothy

    • Hi Dorothy,

      Yes, you can move pins to other boards. You’ll have to move each pin individually. Click ‘edit’ and then use the drop down menu under ‘boards’ to select which board you want to move it to.

    i am having trouble when I use my iPad on Pinterest. It does not bring up the keyboard when I want to do a search. Do you need to fix this bug, or is it just me?

  301. Hi there,

    We are new to pinterest and have been getting quite a lot of traffic from Pinterest. The issue is that some of the pins are getting a lot of likes / repins whereas others are getting basically ignored and this doesn’t seem to make sense since. We’re wondering if there’s a limit to how many pins can be posted per day.

    Here’s the link to our pinterest page:
    http://pinterest.com/platinumpapers/

    And here’s our website:
    http://platinumpapers.com/

    Do you have some idea why is this happening?
    Thanks!

    - Platinum paper team

    • There is not a limit on how many pins can be posted. Pinterest has an algorithm that determines which pins appear at the top of the various category pages. However, I do not know what this algorithm is. Perhaps, your pins that have a lot of likes/repins are more visible at the top of those category pages.

  302. Georgia
    April 18, 2012 |

    Ok, so sometimes people comment on pins, and I think that the comments are completely unnecessary and to be frank, quite annoying. I’ve tried to figure out how to delete these, to no avail. It’s not like they’re rude or disrespectful, just sometimes…. odd. and distracting. For instance, this morning i pinned the word “discalceate” to my board “word of the week” with a definition (barefoot) and an image of bare feet. Then this random person commented “this is so sad” once, then “this is so sad to see”.
    um, i’m sorry, what?
    i’d like to delete that comment, along with a couple others that are just plain odd.
    could you help?
    thanks!

    • I wish I could help, Georgia. I agree the comments can get annoying. I don’t know of a way to delete them. Does anyone else know?

  303. Jennifer
    April 19, 2012 |

    So much great information here! Thank you! I have a question about the people/boards we follow. When we click ‘Pinterest’ centered at the top, we then see pins from those we follow. Do we see all of them or is there an algorithm to that? I wonder because I see people post on facebook that they have just pinned something, but I am not seeing those pins on Pinterest, even though I am following them.

  304. Becky
    April 20, 2012 |

    Do all repins show up on the Everything or Home page? This seems redundant and I am wondering if I repin, is there a way that I can prevent it from showing the original pin plus mine on the same page?

    April 21, 2012 |

    Hello. I have a three-part question that I’m hoping someone can answer for me. I scrolled all through the questions, but didn’t see any reference to these, so I apologize if it’s repeated.

    First, I have 21 boards on Pinterest, but when I do a search under Boards,none of mine come up. They have a fair amount of pins on each one, so I’m guessing that’s not the problem. Can you tell me why this is?

    Second, only about half of my pins come up under search, so same question.

    Finally, I realize that people may only follow certain boards, which each give the count of followers on them. However, under my full count of followers, it states it’s 14, but when I click on it 27 show up. That can’t be just followers to certain boards, because some boards show there are over 40 followers. Can someone address this as well?

    Thanks so much,
    Vivi

    • Hi Vivi – I’m not sure why your boards aren’t showing. I would check back on again and see if you have the same problem because that sounds like a technical issue. For better search capability, be sure to use a hashtag and search term in your description (#keyword) so that you can search your pin. Your last question also seems like a technical issue.

      • Vivi
        April 25, 2012 |

        Thanks so much for the response. I’ve contacted Pinterest since it seems like a technical issue, but unfortunately haven’t heard back. I’ll look into it further.

  307. Susan
    April 21, 2012 |

    I am trying to repin something and my the board I want is not showing. Alphabetically it would be my last board. I have tried everything (which isn’t much) to get that last one to show up. Any suggestions?

      April 21, 2012 |

      I will reply to my own. I just repinned something and that board did show this time.

    Can I delete someone who is following me? I’ve had a few that have linked inappropriate sites to their board and has brought me to inappropriate pages. How can I block them and/or at least disallow them to follow me?

    • Sounds like you don’t want to follow them, not the other way around. Just because someone is following you, doesn’t mean you see their boards. It just means that they see your boards. If you want to unfollow someone, click on their name under a pin they have recently pinned and click ‘unfollow all’.

    Can you look at things again once you’ve looked at them like a history sort of thing?

    Good morning. Nice write-up, but I didn’t find the answer to my question, though I admit I didn’t read all the comments. Up until this morning, if I was viewing a pin that I liked, for example a photo of a delicious looking food, I could double click on it and it would take me to the original internet post. Now it just takes me back to the Pinterest home page. Can you shed any light on this problem? Thanks so much!

    I am going through some old magazine tear outs of recipes so I can add them to Pinterest and throw away the physical paper. Some of the recipes don’t show a photo on the website (or sometimes the photo is on another web page). For a “spring onion sformato” I’d be happy to just attach a photo of spring onions. But it looks like I can only pin other non-related photos found on the site. Is there any way around this?

    Thanks.

    • Not to my knowledge, when you are pinning from a site, it only accessing the images on the URL you are currently on.

    I’ve been commenting on pins I love, but my comments dissappear. The “tally” when you hover over a pin counts my comment, but I have no idea to view it. Also can’t see other peoples comments. Help!

    • I believe Pinterest truncates the comments if there are a certain amount. Have you opened the pin to see the comments or are you looking on the main page?

  323. Maia

    I am wondering how to pin something to a certain category rather than to my boards. Can you answer that question? Thanks so much. Kathy

    Hi,

    My question is, when I click on an individual board it tells me I have 4 followers. However I can’t see who those 4 followers are. Is there anyway to do this? I know 2 are friends of mine as I got a message saying that they were now followers, but I can’t click on “4 Followers” to see who the other two are.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    • You can only view your total followers but not who is following each board.

    How do I remove people that I do not want following me?, they have no boards and no pins and their profile picture is really boarder line Risque in my opinion.

    • Are you asking about removing people that you are following that you no longer want to follow? If so, read this post: http://theweekendhomemaker.com/pinterest-faq-how-can-i-unfollow-someone-on-pinterest

      Or are you asking to remove people who are following you? If so, the answer is you can not remove people who are following you. However, as long as you are not following them, you shouldn’t see any of their pins.

      • Gerri
        May 11, 2012 |

        yeah I was talking about them following me. I wish they would make it an option for us to remove people that are following us that we just don’t want to follow us…….lol Anyway, Thank you for your answer. Have a great week-end !

    Hi Crystal,

    Thank you for all of your information, they are extremely helpful, however I have one question that I hope you can answer:

    I had made many pins, but whenever I checked, the new pins I have made just doesn’t show in its category ( for ex. Humor ) Hence, no one really sees my pins.. What did I do wrong? Here is my boards:

    http://pinterest.com/alijackson9077/

    • to make the pin searchable, use hashtags (#) and keywords (example: #funny, #dog, etc). Also, check your board that you placed them on make sure it is categorized correctly.

    Good Morning Amy…

    Thank You for taking the time and energy sharing your expertise to make our experience even more fabulously rewarding…

    Can I appeal to you to advise how to resolve a ongoing problem with Pinterest losing all of my pins and the compounded problem of my repeated inability to activate the “pin it button” to save my interests…

    I have submitted numerous request to Pinterest for
    assistance…

    As you know all responses to request help…always comes back as a automated response…As well as…it is impossible to address any other issues we may have other than the small few pre-selected automated categories.

    Pinterest has lost all of my pins twice in the last month …compounding the frustration of no option for assistance with this unlisted issue…

It then comes up with a prompt “to help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer”. It then gives you the option to “download file” which I click. Instead of uploading the image it keeps just bouncing back to my main pin board page. I have tried numerous times on numerous days with different pictures. I have even tried from my work PC. I have also read comments from other users who use different browsers to IE & they have the same issue. I have no problem adding pins from websites. I have contacted the Pinterest support page several times over the past 2 months with no reply. Any suggestions please??? Many thanks for your time.

    • Hi Therese – I just tested on my computer and didn’t have any issues. Perhaps it has to do with your security settings on you computer(s). Chaeck your settings to see if you have any added security measues that won’t allow you to download images.

    I am still somewhat new here, so could you please tell me how/where I see the comments that people have made?? My boaard will say ’2 comments’ but there is nothing there, and I checked the main board and don’t see them there. THANKS!

    • If you want to receive comments, go to ‘settings’. Beside ‘notification’, select ‘change email settings’. Beside comments, choose ‘on’ when someone comments on your pin. By doing this, you will get an email each time someone comments on a pin. You can do the same for ‘likes’, repins, etc.

    June 23, 2012 |

    Thank you for your response, Crystal! However, that is all done, and I do get emails saying I have a comment, etc.. I just haven’t seen a comment that anyone has written. Where do I go to actually read the comment?

    THanks!

    • Hi Tammy –

      In the email you get from Pinterest, it should have the actual comment that the person left and a link to the pin they left it on. You can read the comment in your email or you can click on the link to the pin to see the pin and the comment beneath it. Hope that helps.

    I was wondering if anyone could help me. I tried following a board on pinterest but did not realize that more than one person could contribute to the board. Actually, over 400 people could contribute to the board. Now my main page is being blown up. I unfollowed the board but I still can see people posting to the board on my wall. I dont know how to stop it from showing up on my wallm can anyone help me?

    On one of my boards, there seems to be a pin that someone else added, even though I am the only one listed as being able to add pins. When I hover over it, there is no “edit” button, so I can’t delete it. How do I get rid of it? I’m going to change my password just in case there’s something funny going on…

    • I’ve never experienced that, Amber. i’m not sure how it would have gotten on your board. Are there any buttons when you hover over the top?

      • Jarka
        November 14, 2012 |

        exactly the same is happening to me… there is no edit button on some of “my” pins – but I´ve never pinned them, i don´t like them and want them removed! what am I to do? – the buttons at the top of the picture are: repin, like, comment — but no edit button. i´m frustrated…

    I am so frustrated with Pinterest. I found a bunch of spammers or someone who was not using it the correct way. I sent them the names and the reasons I suspected them. I received no response from them and they deleted the ones I told them about. I do not get emails from Pinterest telling me the people who have repinned, the ones who liked, or the comments from others..How am I supposed to return comments to someone I have no idea who it is???? It has been since the 11th, and I have written several times, they just ignore me…The first report was in the wrong heading, group, whatever and they sent me some stupid thing that had no bearing on this subject…..How do I get help??????????????

    • NANCY

      I’M HAVING PROBLEMS WITH COMMENTS, TOO. HAVE YOU GONE INTO SETTINGS? THEN CLICK ON EMAIL TO CHANGE WHAT YOU DO AND DO NOT WANT. SOMETIMES I’M NOTIFIED THAT SOMEONE HAS REPINNED, AND SOMETIMES I’M NOT.I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO READ MY COMMENTS.(EVEN THOUGH I RCV EMAILS NOTIFYING ME ???)

    • hmmm, I’m not sure. Maybe try it again at a later time. Sometimes they have temporary glitches that get fixed and work if you try them later.

    Hi Crystal. We own and B&B and I’m trying to find out what determines if we are in the results when people search for our normal search terms, such as ‘bed and breakfast austin’. For now, if you search boards for this, you do not get our boards or even us as a person. I’ve submitted 3 requests to Pinterest on this with no reponse. Anything that might be helpful on this would be great! Thanks for doing this – they should hire you :)

    I keep having boards appear on my pinterest that I didnt create. things like ” i love making money” “im the boss” or ” I love working at home” each with one pin which i havent clicked but is obviously spam. I delete them and one appears about every day. Is there a way to stop this? I dont like that it looks like I’m the one posting this stuff.

    • I’ve seen those boards pop up on folks facebook timelines. Wondering if someone hacked your profile?? I’d contact Pinterest at one of the email addresses above or tweet them.

    Can anyone help me? Thanks, Joyce

    • If it’s an isolated incident, I’d try again later. Sometimes, I experience technical issues but just try again later and it tends to work.

    I’m having a problem when I go to my boards page my boards are blank but when I click on the board I can see all of my pins. Even when I go to my friends boards they are also blank but again I can click on the board & see all of the pins. I have emailed pinterest but not they have not been to helpful with this problem. This is driving me crazy I really would like to go my boards page and see my boards. It’s rare if I go to my boards page & they are there. Really curious if anyone else is having this problem.
    Thank You

    • Hi Leslie –

      Sounds like a technical issue. Whenever I encounter those, they usually resolve themselves in a few days. Check your boards again in a few days. Otherwise, contact Pinterest via one of the email listed above.

    I am a very crafty person and very in love with pinterest. The only problem is that I do not have an account. I found your site and was hoping that you could request me ( iamthesockmonkey@gmail.com ) thank you do much if you can do that and I will follow you. :)

    I recently added a new board. It doesn’t show up for me at all – but now I can’t add any new boards – there is not the Create board option. The two pins I put in the board I thought I had went to an existing board. I did put an exclamation mark at the end – Get in Shape! did I inadvertently do something wrong? Any help is very much appreciated! I want to add/use the new board or create others!

    My husband and I both have Pinterest accounts. I even share one board with him, I wanted to share another but when I go to add him to the board it won’t even find him. He’s not in my list of FB friends from Pinterest, although we are FB friends. I don’t understand it. To try and search for him on the search he doesn’t show up either. When he logs in to Pinterest, he has the same issues with me. Every one else on my FB shows up BUT HIM and every other friend I have on Pinterest shows up BUT HIM.

  383. Sandy
    September 3, 2012 |

    I am trying to organize my boards. If I move my pins to a new board and I have “likes” and “repins” on that pin, does everything follow? The “likes,” “repins,” and the link? I had everything under food and I want to put things under dessert, breakfast, etc. I just don’t want to have people lose their links if I start moving things. Thanks so much for your help. I have learned so much reading your relies here.

    I have a question about a problem my wife is having with Pinterest. She has a family member she does not get along with and the only contact she has had with her is an email a few months ago and has her blocked on Facebook. Yet the other day this family member got an email saying my wife in following her on Pinterest. My wife didnt follow her and this family memeber has such an obscure pinterest name she would never have been able to search for her. Any idea how this could happen? Will Pinterest have you follow someone that is on your block list on facebook? Any help will be greatly appreciated because this family member is saying my wife is stalking her!!!!!

    Hello:)
    I just started using pinterest and i went to website and just clicked the login with facebook button and started pinning things to my created boards.
    My question is when you login with your facebook can your followers or anyone for that matter can they see all of your facebook such as your post and pictures etc? I also have app on my phone as well. I checked my settings and i have logon with fb on and turned the published activity off and i have my search for my public profile turned off. Really interested if i need to open another fb just for pinterest because i dont share my fb info with strangers:) thanks

    Crystal, thank you for all the time you have spent on this board. I was sent here from a search–looking for “Why don’t my pins show up when I use the search function in pinterest?” This list is so long, that I haven’t been able to find that particular question. I know it’s here somewhere, but I missed it.

    For example, I have a board called “Candy Corn Projects.” One of the projects is my own, and it was pinned almost 2000 times from my site (quite a record for me). Yet, when I search “Candy Corn” on pinterest, it doesn’t show up at all. Is there a way to boost your rating somehow?

    Thanks!

    I would just like to make people aware that you should be careful when promoting your page as your username can get changed. I have just recently received an email from pinterest stating that they just changed mine so that they could use the url for there own services.

    How do you pin more than one pin at the same time and make it look like one pin? I saw cool ideas for DIYing on the internet and i tried to pin all of the steps together but did’nt know how to. I know it could be done because I’ve seen other pins with more than one picture(one picture on top of the other).

    Do i put “@amazing travel” tag in the comments portion of my pinned pictures so it’ll appear in their page? Thanks so much, hope u can help me!

    How do i delete an activity post. I clicked follow for someone and immediately clicked unfollow but it is still showing up on under my activity feed. I don’t want that to show up there but see no way to remove it. Unlike a pin there is no edit so I don’t know how to remove it.

    Thank you for your comments! I have (what I feel like!) is a silly question. I have a photo from my blog that I pinned to Pinterest with the description “Idea for Epiphany – Maji / Wise Man / Three Kings gift box. Gold, Frankincense, & Myrrh!”. However, I (along with other) are unable to search for the pin in Pinterest…none of the words in the description return a result for my pin. Now, I can see the pin if I search for the BOARD (Jan: Epiphany) but I can’t search for the actual pin itself. How come? Here’s the native link to the photo I’m trying to pin: http://enterundermyroof.blogspot.com/2013/01/maji-gift-box-epiphany-2013.html

    I am a contributor on several group boards – but as these boards have grown there are now so many pins that it is really clogging up my feed.

    I still want to be able to pin to these group boards but would like to unfollow the board so my feed is cleaner. Do you know of any way to do this. The only way I’ve found is to leave the group, which I would prefer not to do.
    Thanks for all the tips and tricks – very useful.

    I feel silly asking, but I had 2 that unfollowed me after I repinned their photos. I thought that was the idea? I really liked the subject matter, (flowers, gardens, etc.,)…are there snobby pinners out there that don’t want repins? Just thought someone might have an answer. Thanks! :)

    You go to the top right hand corner where it says your name (and has a picture, if you uploaded one) Click on your name,scroll down to boards, and look there. Often times my new pins do not come up under “everything” either.
