I've Added Pinterest to the Social Media bar
  • I love prettyPhoto. Super easy to install. I needed a Pinterest button, though so I had to add one. Here's the code in case you want to bundle it into the script or someone else needs it. I'm going to add Google+ next and I'll post when it's done.

    (Note: This discussion board is rendering any HTML tags I enter so I've replaced the triangular brackets with double square brackets for visibility. To use this code do two global search and replaces to transform [[ into a left triangular bracket and ]] into a right triangular bracket.) Single square brackets stay as they are

    First off, at the bottom of the web page you need to add a JavaScript line containing the Pinterest js reference as you do whenever pinning (last thing on the page before the [[/body]] tag is best:

    [[script type="text/javascript" src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"]][[/script]]

    Then download the uncompressed version of the script and make these changes:

    Line 93 ( change - add pinterest DOM element )
    social_tools: '[[div class="twitter"]][[a href="http://twitter.com/share" class="twitter-share-button" data-count="none"]]Tweet[[/a]][[script type="text/javascript" src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"]][[/script]][[/div]]'
    +'[[div class="facebook"]][[iframe src="//www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?locale=en_US&href={location_href}&layout=button_count&show_faces=true&width=500&action=like&font&colorscheme=light&height=23" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:500px; height:23px;" allowTransparency="true"]][[/iframe]][[/div]]'
    +'[[div class="pinterest"]][[a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url={location_href}&media={media_src}&description='+encodeURIComponent(document.title)+'" target="_blank" class="pin-it-button" count-layout="horizontal"]][[img border="0" src="//assets.pinterest.com/images/PinExt.png" title="Pin It" /]][[/a]][[/div]]'

    Line 205 ( change - replace multiple instances of {location_href} and delay substituting for now)
    // Rebuild Facebook Like and Pinterest Buttons with updated href
    facebook_like_link = settings.social_tools.replace(/\{location_href\}/gi, encodeURIComponent(location.href));

    Line 267 ( insert )
    pinterest_link = facebook_like_link.replace(/\{media_src\}/gi, encodeURIComponent(imgPreloader.src));

    Line 267 just makes the substitutions for image slideshows. You could add the same code later on in the switch(_getFileType(pp_images[set_position])) cases for the different media types.

    Here's a sample page where I have it running:

  • Oh, and add this line to your css file:

    .pp_social .pinterest{float:left;margin-left:5px;width:100px;overflow:hidden}
  • Hi, looking at your website (http://www.tricksyknitter.com), I see that you have also managed to set it up so that the Facebook like button on each gallery image corresponds to that specific image once in Facebook - how did you manage to set this up? It seems to be a common issue, but struggling to find an answer anywhere..
  • A great help thanks cmjaimet. I think you could clarify the third step around 267 though. After following your steps, their was already a line of code on 267 and your code needs to be added after that - between…

    imgPreloader.src = pp_images[set_position];

    <-- CODE GOES HERE -->


    Kind regards,

  • Hey, sorry for the delay. Summer and kids and stuff.
    => yuleycat, the Facebook is taken care of natively in the original code. I modified it to handle both Twitter and Facebook on lines 208-211

    // Rebuild Facebook Like and Pinterest Buttons with updated href
    if (settings.social_tools) {
    facebook_like_link = settings.social_tools.replace(/\{location_href\}/gi, encodeURIComponent(location.href));
    This executes every time line 184 is triggered which is when a new image is loaded:
    $.prettyPhoto.open = function(event) {
  • => wedideas. Yes, I guess I added some lines since I posted here. Line 267 above actually shows on line 271 in the current file. Thanks.

    imgPreloader.src = pp_images[set_position];
    pinterest_link = facebook_like_link.replace(/\{media_src\}/gi, encodeURIComponent(imgPreloader.src));
  • You're a lifesaver, cmjaimet. Thanks for figuring this one out. I decided I wanted the description from the image box (i.e., the thumbnail link's title attribute) to serve as the default Pinterest description as well. For anyone who's interested, it went as follows:

    1. Change the Line 93 Pinterest DOM element to:

    [[div class="pinterest"]][[a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/?url={location_href}&media={media_src}&description={link_title}" target="_blank" class="pin-it-button" count-layout="horizontal"]][[img border="0" src="//assets.pinterest.com/images/PinExt.png" title="Pin It" /]][[/a]][[/div]]

    2. Change the if statement on line 217 to:

    // Set the description
    if(typeof pp_descriptions[set_position] != 'undefined' && pp_descriptions[set_position] != ""){
    pinterest_link_start = facebook_like_link.replace(/\{link_title\}/gi, encodeURIComponent(pp_descriptions[set_position]));

    3. On line 270 (line 267 in cmjaimet's example above), change "facebook_like_link" to "pinterest_link_start".

    Obviously, the "pinterest_link_start" variable could be named anything, and I'm sure there's something more semantically appropriate.
  • I have followed these instructions, and have it working beautifully....I have one small glitch however. If I like an image on facebook, the image that appears on facebook is not the one that I liked...

    Website is here, www.bespokebakery.co.uk/birthdaygallery/novelties/index.html

    Any ideas?
  • In fact, it seems to pick up the same image for facebook on this page whichever image I "like"....
  • Are there any plans to add these functionalities to the core version?
  • Hi there,
    I am still trying to implement the pinterest button, but I still get the prettyphoto url instead of the url of the full resolution of the image.
    You can see the problem on any of my slideshow galleries, here ie: http://www.flyawaytrip.com/destinations_new_york.htm

    I appreciate any help.
    Thank you very much.

    I have two files prettyphoto.php which has this code:
    <?php extract(get_option('mt_set'), EXTR_OVERWRITE);?>

    jQuery(document).ready(function() {
    window.mt_lightbox = function() { // add the function to a global object like "window.mt_lightbox"
    slideshow: <?php echo ($mt_glb_sshowtime*1000);?>, /* false OR interval time in ms */
    /*autoplay_slideshow: false, /* true/false */
    opacity: <?php echo ($mt_glb_opcty/100); ?>, /* Value between 0 and 1 */
    show_title: <?php if ($mt_glb_title=="true") {echo "true";} else { echo "false";} ?>, /* true/false */
    allow_resize: <?php if ($mt_glb_resize=="true") {echo "true";} else { echo "false";} ?>, /* Resize the photos bigger than viewport. true/false */
    theme: '<?php echo $mt_glb_theme; ?>', /* pp_default / light_rounded / dark_rounded / light_square / dark_square / facebook */
    social_tools: '
    ' /* html or false to disable */
    if(jQuery().prettyPhoto) {

    and the prettyphoto.js 3.1.5

  • Hi,

    it seems like you need to add pinterest's 'pin it' button prettyphoto popup.

    so now i created a magic to add pinterest 'Pin it' button with other social media icons like tweets and fb like.

    here is tutorial how i did this, read and enjoy.

    Add Pinterest to social media icons in prettyPhoto

    thanks to all in advance to view this magic.
  • There is a problem with your code:
    {location_href} will be the current page link, not the image link, so you will Like the page on Facebook, not the photo.
    BUT if I use {media_src} for both facebook and pinterest link, the first one used in your code will be the image link, but the second one will be "{media_src}" like it's plain text.
    So, how can I use {media_src} two or more times for two or more buttons?

Howdy, Stranger!
