  • Pinterest Pin It links only work with product images directly in the site folder.

    Problem:

    Pin It links produce invalid image urls. They only work with product / fragment images directly in the site folder. Product Images within sub-folders will have invalid code (that includes the sub-folder path) generated.

    Fix:

    The Pin It layouts are using.
    Code:
    <actinic:variable name="ProductImageFileName" />
    When they should be using.
    Code:
    <actinic:variable name="ProductImageFileNameRaw" />
    Go to Design / Library / Layouts / Social Media Buttons / Product Pin It Button Layout.
    Replace duff code as above.

    P.S. There are similar issues with Fragments. In Fragment Pin It Button Layout, replace:
    Code:
    <actinic:variable name="FragmentImageFileName" />
    With:
    Code:
    <actinic:variable name="FragmentImageFileNameRaw" />

    Good Evening Norman

    I wonder if you can help me?

    I followed these instructions (and thank you for posting them) but the Product Image still will not appear as it should on Pinterest - I have appended the appropriate Code from my Site and I would be more than grateful if could let me know if I'm doing something wrong?
