I've never tried to do something without an image but I did just now after creating my site. It wouldn't let me create it but I have gone to different links within the webpage to try to find one that has a picture and I can usually find at least one. This is definitely one of the cons of Pinterest!

      • exactly my experience - koppenhaverd, Wed Jul 10 20:30
        Ok, Breana, that's exactly what I am talking about. If it is not a site with an image (see, e.g., http://tarheelreader.org/ ), Pinterest defaults to sorry you can't pin it. I'm wondering if there is... more

        I just went into pinterest and went to pin a website. When I typed in the website it came up with a bunch of different pictures I could pick from. Is that what you are trying to do?
        • multiple pix is not the problem - koppenhaverd, Wed Jul 10 20:32
          I am happy to choose a picture when Pinterest gives me multiple options. The issue is what Breana and I are talking about. Sites with no pictures can't be pinned, at least in an obvious way.

          Usually it's not a problem finding pictures for a website but some sites don't have a "large" picture so for those sites you cannot pin them without a picture. I'm pretty sure those are the sites... more

            Pin a photo-less page. We've all been there: you click the "Pin it" button, only to be told that "...there are no big images or video to pin on this page." Because Pinterest requires that Web pages... more

              Dr. K., Thanks for the tip. I am almost at my wit's end with Pinterest for this reason. I'm thinking about switching to Symbaloo. This constant rejection from Pinterest is maddening! I will try your... more

              Thanks Dr. K. I've had that problem in the past and just couldn't figure out how to pin something that didn't actually have a photo with it. I should have thought to google it.
            • should have googled! - Breanna Hooks, Wed Jul 10 21:32
              Awesome! Thanks. I should have googled Pinterest tricks! I knew there had to be a way around it.
