Although you enjoying pinning and sharing your content, what do you do when there are situations where you would prefer to not allow your images to be shared? To prevent things like personal images or creations from being pinned without permission, use a few snippets of code to help inhibit others from pinning from your site.
The first snippet of code is called the No Pin code, and it is a small line of text that is added to a webpage. It displays the following message when users attempt to pin from the site: "This site doesn't allow pinning to Pinterest. Please contact the owner with any questions. Thanks for visiting!" To use the No Pin code, copy and paste the code snippet into the <head> section of your webpage.
The second snippet of code allows a customized message to be displayed when users attempt to pin your images. It is called the Advanced No Pin code. This code is just like the No Pin code, but it also includes a description in the meta tag which allows you to type a personalized message.
The last snippet of code prevents a single image from being pinned. Using this code enables complete customization of pinning preferences by providing flexibility to allow sharing of some images and prevent sharing of others. This code is also perfect for bloggers who do not want to modify their blog templates.
All three of these code snippets are available on the Pinterest website. To view and copy the code snippets to use on your websites, visit the Pinterest Help Center. Please be advised that there are always work-arounds that can be used to access your content without your permission, but utilizing these three code snippets makes it possible for you to clearly indicate your desires regarding pinning your images and impedes users from snatching images from your website without permission.
