  • Prevent Pinterest from pinning photos

    Hello. I run a private forum and lately I've seen lots of photos that are shared in the forum pinned publicly to Pinterest. I did some research and it looks like I can imbed this code somewhere to prevent members from pinning photos to Pinterest: <meta name="pinterest" content="nopin" /> But not sure where to place it. It says put it anywhere, but is that really true? I'm an absolute novice about all of this stuff. I have a landing page for my website with a link to the forum. Can it just add to the main landing page for my site? Will that cover any thread on the forum?

    I'd really appreciate any help.

    You would have to add that to your head_include template. In the adminCP go to Styles -> Style Manager. Select "Edit Templates" from the Choose Action menu. Edit the head_include template and add your code. Repeat for every Style that your end users are allowed to access.

      Thanks, Wayne. I really appreciate it. Gonna give it a go. The good news is that there is only one template that members can access.

        Just to clarify (as you may get confused otherwise), you mean there's only one style. A template is not the same as a style. There are many templates with a style. Each template is used to build the pages within a style.

        i only mention this as it's an important difference and you'll end up going down the wrong road otherwise.

          Ok, so here's what I did. Hopefully, you can tell me if this is correct or not.

          I logged into AdminCP and went to Styles > Style Manager, and all of the different themes came up on the screen. I made a custom theme by changing colors around so I clicked on "choose action" for my theme and selected "Edit Templates." Then, I scrolled down to the "head_include" line and selected it. To the right, I clicked on the "edit" button and pasted the code into the part that said Template and clicked save.

          Did I do it correctly? Is that all I need to do?
