Pinterest is hot. There’s no denying it.
It’s changing how we think about design, too.
As Web Developer Juice says, Pinterest is affecting design in three major ways.
- Pinterest Depends on Non-Linear Website Design
- Pinterest Rethinks How We Organize and Present Content
- Pinterest Prioritizes Images Over Text
In fact, a lot of our clients have begun requesting both consultation on how to best use Pinterest as well as functionality that they can add to their sites that mimic Pinterest.
Well, we’re doing both.
And today, we’re releasing our work, so you can add Pinterest-like functionality to your site.
The Gunner Technology Pinboard plugin leverages Twitter Boostrap, Ajax and jQuery Masonry to create a personal Pinterest-type view of photos for WordPress authors.
We creating the plugin using a Custom Post Type, which you can use very much like a simple post. What you set as the “Featured Image” will appear as the photo for the pin.
You can categorize the pins by pinboards for more fine-grained retrieval via the shortcode.
Finally, the admin panel will allow you to filter your pins by the pinboard taxonomy.
You can see it in action on one of our clients’ sites.
If you have any questions, want a feature added or anything else, please leave a comment below.
