So you want to Pin an image from your blog but you don’t want the image to display in your post? Maybe an extra long image with text on it, perfect for Pinterest? I want to show you two ways to hide a Pinterest image in a WordPress post.
There are two simple ways to do it.
1. Upload the image directly to Pinterest and manually add the URL to your post.
2. ‘Hide’ the image in your blog post.
Uploading the pin and adding a URL is the easiest way to make your pin link back to your post, but if you want your readers to be able to pin a different image from what appears on your blog, you will need to hide the image in the back end. That involves adding a little extra HTML to your post. It’s easier than it sounds.
Click the PLUS symbol and upload the image from your computer.
Enter the URL you want the pin to link back to and hit “Continue”.
Say you want to have a long image or an image with text on it as an option for pinning, but you don’t like the way those images look in a post. For example, you might want the image on the left to appear on your blog post, but you want to Pin the image on the right.
