Keeping track of cool stuff

Today I had time in front of a real computer and so I went down the rabbit hole of . There’s amazing stuff here and like always when I see amazing stuff, I would like to keep track of it!

Like any other site that want to sell you stuff, they have a wishlist and favorites … and that’s actually very well implemented … but it still requires for me to be logged into their site and doesn’t really lend itself to sharing …

This seemed like an obvious case of Pinterest to the rescue …

Now getting that to EMBED … that’s another story entirely! Once again being at the bleeding edge of WordPress is working against me because the recipes people have shared don’t work in 3.6.1 (yet).

Probably the cutest solution to the problem was using the Flickr plugin with the Pinterest RSS feed, so if you have a Flickr plugin that works … great.

The second best suggestion I found was this: use the Pinterest widget builder and embed that into your site. This is great but I want this to work whether I am displaying just one post or many and it’s quite specific about not loading the widget multiple times. What to do …

… I ultimately decided to embed this is the theme … but the suggested “easy” execution scheme is mindboggling. It suggests to put the script tag just above the /body tag, apparently because it needs to execute onLoad. Well, it does seem to work in the footer (Appearance – Editor – Footer) … but the page rendering is … less than desirable.

Embedding the “Advanced” version in the HEAD section work much better …

Is it safe? I don’t know but I don’t keep anything high value here, right?
