I must be having a senior moment - I received an invite but cannot for the life of me figure out to add the bookmarklet! I right click on the Pin it and click add to favorites and nothing happens. In the box it just says Add to Favorites....Did anyone else have troubles with adding the link....or anybody have any suggestions?

If you go to the about page, click and hold the link, then drag it up to your toolbar and let go. Then it should stay there with your other links.

If you don't have any links that show up above a web page in the toolbar, you may need to find that in your browser settings.

Hope that helps!

ARGH! I'm using Explorer, and I can't for the life of me figure this out either. I am able to go to someone's pinterest page and re-pin to my pinterest page, but can't figure out how to get the little PIN IT badge so that I can pin from regular web sites. Any help for this dummy?

I had the hardest time figuring this out as well.....and to be honest, I'm still not sure how I got it to finally work, except that I got the newest version of Firefox...which is the browser that I use. And then it finally took.

I wish I could be more help.

Thanks, LindaSusan. At least now I can get something pinned by scrolling down my 'favorites' list. If only I could get the little PIN IT button on my toolbar.

I am having trouble as well- though I log on through AOL and use that browser. I'm saving it to favorites but it isn't showing up in my favorites category- any help?

Actually, leslie, it was YOU I mean to thank, LOL - just got your name wrong on it. Thanks for YOUR help - that got me to be able to pin, just not get the pink button on my toolbar.

I was like "hmmmmm, I guess that didn't help anyone get it on their deals"

not rudely... I really thought maybe it didn't help (I am often a provider of useless or too much information)

glad to be of assistance.

Has anybody been able to get the Pin It thing to work on AOL? I can get it fine on IE, but not AOL which is what I use most often. I'm pulling my hair out here!!

perhaps this is not the place to ask, but will someone invite me?

i went to the site sent in my email address and it said "thanks you are on the list"

what does that mean? i dont have an account. i have not received an email from them.

can someone invite me? i got the bookmarklet to work immediately (from shimelle's post) but i dont have an account!

feeling left out in santa cruz,

How do you put the bookmarklet on your IPAD? Can't seem to get it to work and I keep pinning from other people's sites but can't see my boards. Please anyone....

I've been trying to find out how to get it to work with AOL too. The steps above don't help. Maybe it won't work at all with AOL?

It does work with aol because I somehow installed it on my destop computer. Now I'm just trying to figure out how I did it so I can do it on my laptop too!

I'll report back if I figure it out...

Okay, I figured it out... instead of signing in to your account and clicking on "add" and "add a pin", go to the "about" section, then the "goodies" section. Then right click on the "pin it" link, and add to favorites. Once it's there you can drag it/add it to your toolbar.

Good luck everyone!

i guess this got deleted off here so I will repost it.

This is for internet explorer








For google chrome or Firefox you just drag that Pin It icon to the toolbar instead of clicking add to favorites.

For Safari first copy this code

javascript:void((function(){var%20e=document.createElement('script');
e.setAttribute('type','text/javascript');
e.setAttribute('charset','UTF-8');
e.setAttribute('src','http://assets.pinterest.com/js/pinmarklet.js?
r='+Math.random()*99999999);document.body.appendChild(e)})());


2. Go to any website and create a bookmark, I chose pinterest.







Then close out of everything and open up your bookmarks page and click edit in the bottom left corner then click on the small arrow next to you bookmark link, mine was Pin it





Then delete the pinterst.com and place the CODE from above in that spot and click done



That is it you are done. Anytime you are on a website with a picture you want simply open up your bookmarks while on that page and click pin it! it will open up another window and you click on the picture you want same as above. FROM EXPERIENCE SOMETIMES I HAVE TO CLICK PIN IT A FEW TIMES BEFORE IT PULLS UP THE SECOND WINDOW. SO IF IT DOESN'T WORK THE FIRST TIME TRY AGAIN.

Sign into pinterest before you start pinning but, that page doesn't have to stay open.

Leslie, Does that work for Chrome too? I don't even have a toolbar, it doesn't look like! Just a browser.
