    I am super excited about this new feature. I just finally updated my plugin and discovered it. Thanks for mentioning it here or I never would have discovered it and how to activate it. My only question now it that though I checked all three, I only see Big Oven and Yummly on my recipe cards. Is that because Pinterest takes awhile to verify or is there some glitch?

      It looks to be a cookie banner from Yummly that is blocking the button… I guess yummly hasn’t considered how the banner affects the buttons. But if you go to, then accept cookies, it should work. After doing this, I could see your pinterest button without issues.
