You know the cool update awhile back that helpfully reminded you if you already pinned something?

Mine no longer seems to be working.

Has anyone else noticed this or is it possible that it's something I have done wrong?

I've never had that feature...I need it though! I've double-pinned a lot of things.

Mine doesn't appear to be working either. I wonder if it is just temporary?

I hope so.

Mine was working on my iPad as of this morning. I haven't tried pinning anything via a web browser today.

Thanks. I am on a desk top and it just let me double pin something with no warning. It let me do it yesterday with no warning as well.


Hopefully it won't be permanent. But for now I'll just have to try to be more careful.

It worked on my desktop earlier today but I don't think it always catches them all.

I'm on a laptop. I went to pinterest a few minutes ago to my home feed and tried to repin a pin I pinned this morning (say that three times fast LOL.)

It didn't tell me that I had already pinned it.

what I've noticed is if I pin the exact same pin, the message pops up but if I pin the same item but from a different source it doesn't catch it


I always say what I mean, I just may not mean to say it out loud!

That feature seems to be working, but I've noticed lately that the last 3 or 4 boards I've pinned to feature isn't there any longer, I kind of liked that, since I tend to use the same boards over and over.

Either way, I still love me some Pinterest!!!!!

mine worked last night. But I have now noticed they no longer have a next page button. You have to refresh each page.


I have quite a few learing disabilitys that effect my spelling a grammer. I do know my grammer and spelling suck. I have been working on this problem all my adult life.

In. One browsing section it worked on one but not on another. I wonder if the urls were different, even though it was the same pic?

Thanks for the input and ideas.


In one case I literally just repinned the exact same pin from Pinterest to test it and it didn't work.

So it was definitely the same link and all.


I adore Pinterest, glitches and all. I managed without the feature before so I can do it again. I just wanted to make sure they hadn't made it an option somewhere and I was being a dork and not seeing it.

I updated my iphone to 7 this weekend and also got a Pinterest update. I noticed that things don't pin as quickly and that the feature the OP mentioned does not work all the time.

That makes sense to me. I would imagine it has to go based off the URL. At any rate, I notice that it only works for me on my laptop, not my Kindle or iPhone.
