Pinterest has changed the way you can "reuse" pins based on the type of account that you have. Pintrest for Business allows you to select from a variety of different widgets. A standard Pintrest account now only allows you to embed a single pin. 

To embed a pin:

  1. Click on a pin (can't be your own pin)
  2. Click on the "<> Embed" button:

Copy the code that pops up, and paste it into a Rich Text box or into any Rich Text area of any box in your guide.

Here is how it will look in your guide:


Clicking any description or image will take you to the pin on Pinterest.

  1. My Pinterest RSS feeds are acting funny today. This is the error message I am getting:

    Sorry, there has been an error processing the request:
    This XML document is invalid, likely due to invalid characters. XML error: SYSTEM or PUBLIC, the URI is missing at line 2, column 48
    Validate this feed here.

    Any ideas on how to fix this.

  2. Thanks for notifying us that the RSS feeds for Pinterest are not working for you. I tested a few on some demo guides and the RSS feeds are not working for me either. I’ve submitted a support request to Pinterest, because their RSS feeds seem to be displaying relative links, this is something that is out of our control.
    If Pinterest replies to my bug support ticket, I’ll be sure to notify you.

  3. Any idea if this has been resolved? I'm getting the same error message as Cindi for Pinterest Board RSS feeds. And I can't get a Pinterest widget to work either.

  4. Pintrest has stopped using RSS feeds, for more embed options you need a Pintrest for Business account.
