Most websites have a small red circular P (the Pinterest symbol) or a button that says 'Pin'. Even Youtube has a pin option when you click on share. For most websites it is near the top of the page or the start of the article but for others it is at the bottom. You have to kind of hunt for it. However, there is something you can download into your browser toolbar that allows you to make a pin out of any site. I know when I first joined Pinterest I had the option to download it. Of course that was about two years ago so they might not offer that as an option anymore because so many sites already have it directly on the page.

        Morgan, I am a PC user, so I didn't get that option when I signed up. Maybe I need to look around my account settings to see if I can download one there. Thanks for the information though!

      Paige, If you are on the computer and you click add pin (it's in the upper right hand corner) you can put the URL in the box and it will find a picture on the site you can use. I've always only... more

        Breanna, I saw that, but had no idea how to use it the right way! Thank you for filling me in. I knew I needed a way to add websites (and not just repin) so that helps tons! Thanks!

          No problem! Up until now all I've ever done is repin too! I've never had a reason to need to upload other things.

        So like a Facebook "like" button? I thought that might be the case, so now I know what to look for! I didn't get the option to download anything like you described, so that could be because so many... more
