This post was first published on June 22, 2013. We’ve updated it with new solutions and a tutorial to make it super simple to use.
A growing number of dlvr.it users have asked us how to best use dlvr.it with Pinterest. One fast and easy way to get started using dlvr.it and Pinterest is to add your Pinterest RSS feeds to dlvr.it as a content source. Then let dlvr.it post your latest pins to your social networks.
Solution 1. Pinterest to Social Media
You can easily connect your Pinterest account to dlvr.it. Once you set this up, dlvr.it will automatically share your Pins to your social networks, including Twitter, Facebook and Google+. We’ll post your pinned photos in a visually rich photo post style — not just text and a link to view the photo on Pinterest.
1. Sign into your dlvr.it account.
2. Click ‘+add’ to add Pinterest to posting route. (Read the dlvr.it starting guide for more information on adding routes.)
3. Choose Pinterest
4. Click ‘Connect Pinterest Feed’
5. Enter your Pinterest username
To find your Pinterest username, log into Pinterest and go to https://www.pinterest.com/settings/. Scroll down to the Profile > Username section.
Your username will look something like this http://pinterest.com/username. Just enter your username in dlvr.it and not the entire URL. (Don’t include this part: http://pinterest.com/)
–> Optionally, you can specify a Pinterest Board name. dlvr.it cannot connect to secret Pinterest Boards
5. Click Save
6. You’re all set! When you pin photos, dlvr.it will automatically post those new pins to your social networks. Here is how it looks:
Solution 2. Finding the RSS Feed of Pinterest User / Board
Below are instructions for finding:
(a) Your Pinterest User RSS / Atom feed (all your public pins)
(b) Your individual board RSS / Atom feeds (feeds for each of your boards).
Pinterest User RSS Feed
You’ll find your User RSS feed by entering your Pinterest URL, and adding /feed.rss to the end of the URL. Examples:
The Pinterest URL for dlvr.it is: https://www.pinterest.com/dlvrit/
The Pinterest feed URL for dlvr.it is: https://www.pinterest.com/dlvrit/feed.rss
To get your Pinterest User feed, just replace dlvrit in the URL above with your Pinterest username.
PinBoard RSS Feeds
You’ll find your Board RSS feeds by entering your Pinterest Board URL and adding .rss to the end of the URL.
The Pinterest board for our blog, the Social Media Minute: https://www.pinterest.com/dlvrit/social-media-minute/
The RSS feed for the board is: https://www.pinterest.com/dlvrit/social-media-minute.rss
