Looking for a way to post scrolling or random posts to our Pinterest board.

I see some Google info on Pinterest RSS, but I can't find a way to make it scroll through individual posts.

Thanks for any suggestions

If you've got an RSS feed from Pinterest, have you tried adding that feed to our RSS Gadget?

I am not able to see anything but a white screen.

I use these links:

Pinterest main page: http://www.pinterest.com/phxwestbrass...

Board page: http://www.pinterest.com/phxwestbrass...

When we try the feeds, we are getting 403 errors. Pinterest is apparently thinking we are a bot (we get this message in a response).

I've asked Pinterest to see if anything can be done (but since it was submitted via web form I am not certain when the reply will come, or if it can be fixed).

Still no luck in making this work. I'm searching for other alternatives now.

Our Pinterest boards for full of great images that are updated often. It's a shame to not be able to make use of what we put on Pinterest (other than manually cross posting to somewhere else)

Thanks, for any suggests.

I'm just checking back to see if anyone has a Pinterest feed working yet?

Hi Phoenix West,

I did try out embedding a Pinterest feed using their own widget builder and had it displaying on digital signage but I found their capabilities (at least, using the settings already available on that page) to be fairly basic. The settings didn't add further ways to do automatic scrolling https://developers.pinterest.com/tool...

If there is another user that's more familiar with the Pinterest platform, otherwise you may want to cross-post the query on to their support/developer pages like the Pinterest StackOverflow http://stackoverflow.com/questions/ta...

Thanks!
