This plugin feature allows you to add “Pin It” buttons over the top of images in your blog posts that only appear when a site visitor hovers over the image. This is a great way to get your Pinterest-loving visitors to share images throughout your posts.
Once activated, you’ll see several options appear, allowing you to customize the functionality of this feature.
Pinit Button: This activates or deactivates this feature entirely.
Horizontal Location & Vertical Location: These two options work in tangent to control where the button may appear on the image. For example, you might want it to appear on the top left (vertical location set to top; horizontal location set to left).
Min Width & Min Height: Pinterest has minimum height and width rules about what can be shared on its platform. Research shows that large, portrait-shaped images (ideally 1102 by 635) perform the best. These two options allow you to declare the minimum sizes of an image on which you want this share button to appear.
Image Source: Select Pin the image to allow users to pin the same image that is being hovered over. Or, select Pin the Custom Pin Image to force users to share the Custom Pinterest Image you’ve uploaded for that post/page.
Description Source: Select Image ALT text to have the image’s ALT text used for the Pin description. Or, select Custom Pin Description to use the description you’ve written for that image’s Social Warfare Pin Description. If that is empty, we’ll use the description in the post’s Social Warfare Pinterest Description metabox in the post editor.
