Yikes, those cluttered Pinterest hover buttons are harshing your website's zen!
While you dig the traffic Pinterest sends to your WordPress blog, the default save buttons kind of make your WordPress posts and pages feel like a tween's bedroom.
Not a vibe.
But what if we told you there was a way to go all Marie Kondo on those distracting Pinterest images in your blog posts? Tidy up your WordPress theme while still cashing in on those juicy Pinterest clicks?
With the Tasty Pins plugin, you can easily hide Pinterest images in your WordPress posts and pages while still benefiting from sweet, sweet Pinterest traffic to your blog. This blog post will help you understand how to hide Pinterest images in WordPress using Tasty Pins.
Let's get to it!
Why hide Pinterest images in WordPress?
We get it — Pinterest is your BFF for driving blog traffic to your WordPress blog.
But sometimes, those default Pinterest hover buttons make your WordPress site feel cluttered and messy. Not to mention landscape photos just don't look good on Pinterest.
So, here are a few reasons you might want to hide Pinterest images in your blog posts:
- Maintain your own sleek, custom-designed aesthetic. Those clunky hover buttons kind of disrupt your vibe.
- Emphasize your original branded content. Default Pinterest images scream, “share me”!
- Avoid visual clutter and distractions for your site visitors. You want them to find the image that represents your brand, not saved pins. So hide them except when they're on Pinterest.
So while you dig the traffic Pinterest brings, you don't have to let their default pin buttons clutter up your WordPress site.
You can easily hide 'em in your posts while still benefiting from Pinterest Pin shares!
