Pinterest Share Demo Thread

This is a demo thread for a new vBulletin mod I made to show the Pinterest Pin button in each post.

For now I have activated it only for Admins and Guests. When I have it finished I will set it to work with the JUOT UserCP Option to enable/disable share buttons.

For now though I need a vB 3.8 forum to demo the features.

Feel free to ignore this thread.

The mod searches each post for a YouTube video- if none found it searches for an external image- if an external image is not found it searches for an attachment. If no attachment it *can* look for a user Avatar. If no Avatar it can just use a generic forum logo.

The last two options I have disabled on JUOT because I don't see the point in "pinning" a post with no real media content to Pinterest.

Therefore even guests will only see the Pinterest Pin button in posts with media content (example- no share button for this post.)

There will be share buttons for some of the following posts though.

Also Pinterest's counts don't update immediately- it can take a few minutes.

The mod can be found and downloaded from: Pinterest Sharing System by BOP5 for VB 3.8 VB 4.x!

My understanding of Pinterest is that it is for women. Since we only have like 4 of them here, why go through the trouble?

It's basically just a place to share pics and videos. Women use it to share pics of shoes, dresses, recipes.... I don't mean to be stereotyping but that is what it looks like to me. Maybe some guys sharing pics of women's shoes too. But I don't know any one of my guy friends who joined Pinterst.

That said I posted some "shares" of Frank Sinatra YouTube videos and in an hour 16 people I don't know re-pinned (re-posted) them, each one a potential link back to the site they originally came from. Here on JUOT I've pinned some videos of animals (cute things) and got a handful of repins. :shrug:

It was more to fulfill the demand on the vBulletin forums for good working Pinterest integration. I think vBulletin is the first forum package out there to have pinterest integration available now.
