Installation

  1. Copy the pretty-pinterest-pins folder contained in the zip file to your plugins folder, /wp-content/plugins/
  2. Activate it through the 'Plugins' menu on the WordPress Administration page
  3. Under Appearance > Widgets you will see the "Pretty Pinterest Pins" widget. Drag it to your sidebar and place it where you want it to appear.
  4. Add a Pinterest username and change any of the default settings.
  5. To show pins only from a specific board, you can enter the name of the board in the Specific Board input box. The correct format for board names is found in the URL after the username. For example, the URL for my board called "Cool Stuff" is http://pinterest.com/jowilki/cool-stuff/.
