Nope - I have cleared the cache, I have the latest version of Firefox. No Pinterest button using, Mozilla, Chrome or Opera browsers on an XP machine. But weirdly when I use another computer Win 7 with IE8 it works. So beats me!
But Why, Tell me Why - should it work fine for 6 months and then suddenly two days ago stop working? Coincidences matter - it was just about this time that the other problem with profile switches started to happen - the famous FLIP-FLOP on the switch to display 'idled' hubs or not. Seems likely the two are releated especially when other people report the pin button not displaying with the magnificent Windows 7 - next it will only work with Win8!!!
Who knows. The logic that its my RAM, CPU etc. does not gel with me - its just a little button. I'll await futher developments. Pinterest is very important to me as it generates a lot of traffic etc. If the whole world can pin my images with links back to my articles I'm happy! I have my little right click Pinterest tool that works extremely well and I can pin several images from the same article not just one. So I am happy! So no worries thanks for trying. I'm happy! - three's a crowd, or a forest.
There was a problem with "yes" means "no" and "no"means "yes" in the profile editor as to another attribute. Try it with the "show pin button" setting. Like I said, a long shot, but with multiple posts saying both "see" and "not see", who knows?
I see only the two share buttons you do janderson. The rest are gone also and I haven't changed anything. I use IE. If it's not a system wide issue, then it must be something just with us. What's the common thread?
You may have indeed found a glitch, i.e., pin it won't show here for anyone still using XP. If others will test with this differential in mind, and either confirm or refute, this adventure might actually be solved!
I noticed tonight that the Flipboard share button is missing on all hubs. I checked a few niche sites and they are all missing. It doesn't matter if you're logged in or not. In addition, the problem I reported a few weeks ago with Pinterest banning ToughNickel is still not fixed.
We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to HubPages, already substantially larger than Twitter and Reddit. Maddie wrote a...
