RESOLVED: PinIt button count not present (Pinterest issue)

    Yes it has...

    The button is still there. It's just the counter that is gone.

    I checked multiple subdomains.

    Can anyone else confirm?

    Note: yesterday, both the FB button and counter went AWOL. However, that was an FB snafu, not HP.

    I love the internet... big_smile

      Your right the pin it counter is gone.

        Thanks. Hopefully, more people will report. That will make it easier for HP to figure out if it's a Pinterest thing or an HP thing.

      The counter portion is on the Facebook end of things.

      I just looked at one of your Hubs and it is showing the count.

      If you upgrade to the current stable version of Chrome, do you still not see the counts?

        .
        If you are asking about the FB counter, it's been alive, well, and showing since yesterday.smile

        If you are asking about the Pin It counter, it is still not showing. And I don't care enough about Pinterest to bother with a browser upgrade.big_smile I just thought HP would want to know. If it is a browser version issue, it still might be worth looking into. I have no idea what percentage of visiters drop by HP with the non-latest browser versions...smile

                  I couldn't get it to work. I could tell that it is reputable, good software though. I'll give it another shot tomorrow.

          I'm doing some research to see what might be going on.

            I just noticed that the Pin It counter was also missing on a non-HP site. That should help narrow things down.

              The counting part is on their end.
              I wonder if they disabled the feature due to traffic or something similar?

              This certainly makes it look like a counter should work in some implementations:

              Still doing research, but wanted to give you an update!

                I dropped by squidoo (forgive me). big_smile

                If you see the Pin It button, but not the counter, that would seem to be that. Not our problem. It confirms what you said that it's Pinterest. Could you delete the link when you are done? It makes me cringe. lol

    Well, a half-hour, and no one else confirmed it. Never mind...

    Pinterest is a mess. The counts are gone again. lol

    I noticed the PIN IT button is now showing the counts.

      Thanks for the info.
      This appears to be an issues that comes and goes and is on Pinterest's end.  Unfortunately, I have a feeling the counts will go away again.
