A Pinboard Sharing Button for WordPress.com blogs

I couldn’t find a ready-link on http://pinboard.in/howto/ for a Share Button that I could add to the blog to let folks send posts to their Pinboard account for bookmarking or reading later.

So, I took their bookmarklet links and stripped them down to give the below links.

I found that I could not just use the bookmarklet code out of the box – on the free wordpress.com anyway – probably because they are Javascript code.

To use,

  1. log into WordPress
  2. Go to Settings -> Sharing and scroll to Sharing Buttons
  3. Click on the Add a new Service link, and use the detail below.
