Problem Saving Pins to Pinterest.

  • A few months ago I downloaded the Shareholic Pinterest Pin It extension, which worked fine. I decativated my Pinterest account just before Christmas and at the same time I ditched the extension.

    Having Created a new account at Pinterest I re-installed the extension. However, I can no longer save pins from an external website or upload pictures to Pinterest. I can save anyone else's pins that have been posted on Pinterest, but not my own.

    This what's happening

    Step 1.

    When I see an image I wish to pin, I right click on it, when the drop-down menu appears, I click on the Pin It option.

    Step 2.

    When the screen clears I can see a few thumbnails of the image I wish to pin. I hover the mouse over the one I want. When I see Save button I click on it.

    Step 3.

    A window opens showing any boards I have on the right, while on the left there should be a thumbnail of the picture I want to pin under which is the text area for comments etc. All I can see is just white space.

    On the right of this pop up window are my boards, I select one which I wish to Pin the picture to the board I've chosen to the right of the board name is the Save button. When I hover my mouse over this the cursor changes from an arrow to a hand. When I click on the Save button nothing happens and the pin is not saved to the board.

    I've had no bother in saving from Websites or uploading files to Pinterest when I used it in the past.

    Is anyone who has the Shareholic Pin It extension having any issues in uploading or saving Pins from external websites or know how I can solve this issue?

    Many thanks for your help.

  • Try with:
    Ctrl + Shift + E > Developer Mode > Copy Extension ID:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Then close Opera and go to Opera profile > Local Extension Settings (folder) Search for the ID extension folder (if exist) and rename it.

    Start Opera and check if works.
