Beautify Your Blog || Pinterest Mouseover

6.19.2013

A few weeks ago I helped host a blogger round table all about blog design. There seemed to be a lot of the same questions from bloggers - they all wanted a simple fix for similar problems. Rather than just share it with the few ladies at the round table, I wanted to share it with all of you. So here we are with my new mini-series beautify your blog. Today's topic? Pinterest Mouseover - The Hovering Pin It Button!

----------------------------------------------------------------------


1. In the left sidebar of your blogger dashboard click "Template".
2. Under the Live on Blog thumbnail click "Edit HTML".
3. Locate the </body> tag near the end of the template - Use Ctrl F or Apple F for easy searching.
4. Paste the following code right above the </body> tag:

<script>
//<![CDATA[
var bs_pinButtonURL = "http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-y3xzTGiGzH0/UK4XOaUpdaI/AAAAAAAADw8/Z1MH4Jr4Efo/s1600/pinterestx1_72.png";
var bs_pinButtonPos = "center";
var bs_pinPrefix = "";
var bs_pinSuffix = "";
//]]>

5. Click "Save Template".

ugh, i want to do this, my pictures are all formatted to be a certain size. Because of this, when I added the pinterest thing, the pinterest icon was like HUUUGE and took over half my page! do you know how to fix that?! lol

Amanda Schroeder said...

Thanks for the tutorial! I did it! wahoo. Also, I think you may have a typo. But I could be wrong. You said to paste the code about the < / body > tag. Did you mean above? That's what I'm assuming. Entered your giveaway! Time to hang out again!!

Hey lady! I'm a new follower! :) I already have my Pinterest hover set up but this is a great tutorial and I do recommend every blogger have it. It's so vital and it's SOOO practical. I just love how I can hover over my pictures in any post and BAM, they are instantly on pinterest for the day. No hassle! Love it!

I WISH I were creative enough and good enough with that HTML madness to design my own blog. I'm in the market for a new blog title so if I win a make over from you that would be perfect!!
