Bonjour!

Welcome to le Lapin dans la Lune. My name is Delphine, I'm a French artist living in California, welcome!

Pinterest like a pro (1)

Do you have a Pinterest account? I do, and I use it a LOT. I am a very visual person, it has totally changed the way I work and the way I bookmark my favorite references.

Pinterest is fun but there is one little problem. When you are making a Pin from a blog post , it Pins the blog location, NOT the post itself. That's the reason why sometimes you click on a Pin all you get is a whole big pretty blog, and nothing about the cute tutorial you pinned two months ago.
The tutorial is not on the front page anymore and you will have to dig in the older posts to find it.

Its very frustrating, but at least for the pins you pin yourself from a blog, there is a solution:

You need to find the post permalink.  Now,I know,  my geeky friends are totally delighted by this wonderful piece of news, but most of you will be like :"What??"

A permalink, in short, is the address of the post itself, not the address of the blog it's posted on. And the most simple way to get it, on most blogs, is to simply...very simply...

Click on the title of the Post.

Like here : click on the Title "Pinterest like a Pro" . The internet address on your toolbar changes : instead of "/", now you can read "/non-dairy-diary/2013/5/7/pinterest-like-a-pro-1.html"  

Bingo. Now if you pin the picture of that post or click on my Pinterest icon in  the commentary section, it will pin the exact post, not the blog.

I just saved your access to so many tutorials, didn't I?

xoxo, you're welcome.

Etes-vous sur Pinterest? J'y suis, et c'est un fantastique outil pour travailler ou partager des bonnes idées avec mes copines. Par contre, il y a un petit bout de code qui m'agace prodigieusement sur Pinterest : quand on pin depuis un blog et pas depuis un post, le lien devient obsolète quand l'auteur du blog reposte...Il faut aller chercher le post dans les archives, et c'est parfois décourageant.

Le truc c'est de trouver l'adresse fixe du post, qui ne changera pas. On appelle ça un permalink.  Et la façon la plus simple de le trouver, c'est de cliquer, dans la plupart des blogs, sur le titre du post, ici "Pinterest like pro". L'adresse dans la barre outil change et devient plus longue...Voila, vous pouvez utiliser Pinterest!

Je viens de vous sauver une bonne pelletée de tutoriels, non? Y'a pas de quoi, avec plaisir.
