Let’s get started on how to add a Pinterest feed widget to your blog
- Go to Pinterest Developers
- Click on Tools (while logged in)
- Click Widget Builder
- The widget builder also creates custom Pinterest buttons and widgets to add to your website.
- Navigate to the Profile tab
- Enter your Pinterest URL then preview the different sizes
- Use the square
- Select then install the code
- Go to the spot on your blog where you want to add your Pinterest widget. Then add a custom HTML block
- After you have your HTML block, copy and paste the code from the first Pinterest Developers section into your HTML block. Then copy and paste the code from the second section directly after the first chunk of code. Both sections of code should be in the same HTML block with one after the other. After the code is installed, preview the widget to make sure it is correctly done. Then publish your post, update and test it out to make sure it’s right.
