Hello - I am currently using the SocialShare control for an online product gallery. I would like to add a button for pinning  the current page to Pinterest, as many of our customers and potential customers are using that site now.The code is provided at the bottom of this page:
http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/

How would you recommend integrating this into the SocialShare control? I could add this separately along side the SocialShare control, but I'd like to stay to minimal code and keep the appearance as consistent as possible.

Hi Josh,

Just yesterday we received the same feature request and this idea is logged in the PITS in this URL. There are already many plans for the Q2 2012 release and I cannot guarantee it will make it, but you can vote for the item if you want to increase its priority.

Currently an external button cannot be added to the RadSocialShare and I would recommend that you add it next to our control, you could additionally remove the border from the RadSocialShare (and add it to a common wrapper, for example) in order to make it look more uniform.


All the best,
Marin

Hi guys,

The planning for the Q3 2012 release has already been set and I am sorry to say that this feature would not be available there. We will do our best to provide it in one of the upcoming releases.


Kind regards,

Hi all,

Pinterest Pin It Button has not been added to the RadSocialShare yet due to the busy schedule of our develpers, but the good news is that:
  • We have created a simple Code Library here that can do the job for the time being
  • In Q1 2013 RadSocialShare will include Yammer buttons - Follow, Like and ShareOnYammer.
Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

Yammer?  How did Yammer beat out Pinterest?

Is it because Iceniums site uses it and they wanted it internally?

Hello Steve,

Currently, RadSocialShare doesn’t support Pinterest Pin. However, the button can be easily added manually to the control through JavaScript.
