Stick a pin in it – Pinterest has come to SlideDeck!5 Comments
You read right, folks – one of our most-anticipated Content Sources has finally arrived on SlideDeck. Our code poets have pushed an update that will give you the ability to create Dynamic Source SlideDecks using your Pinterest images. Check out the Pinterest slider we created below!
Images sourced from the excellent Pinterest pinboard “Architecture-Bridges“
Oh, you’re still here? Well then, allow me to give you a quick guide as to what’s in the update.
30 Seconds for Pinterest Perfection
It really couldn’t be much simpler – to get started, all you need to do is select Pinterest as a content source either from the Manage screen, or in the Dynamic Source editor screen.
Once you’re on the Dynamic Source Editor screen, simply paste in the URL of a user’s profile page, or the link to the actual board, and hit “Apply”.
And boom, you’re done!
Actually, that’s a lie – you’ll of course want to tweak your Lens’ appearance and playback settings just so to create the perfect Pinterest slider. After all, that’s why everyone knows you’re the go-to style maven, right?
This feature isn’t built on the official Pinterest API, rather the result of a little tinkering on our part, so we’ll definitely be looking to fill out this Content Source with more robust capabilities. As it stands, though, we just can’t get enough of creating awesome Pinterest sliders!
What do you think of the new Content Source? Have any cool ideas for using it? Share with us in the comments!
