Overloaded servers work slower than usually - it is a known fact. Still, one can forget to delete the cache manually due to high work pressure or lack of time. For this purpose Pinterest extension has a function of automatic removal of remained posts. Just set the desired Cache Lifetime and don’t bother with it anymore. By default, Cache Lifetime appears to be 86 400 seconds.
The extension has a function of quick turning on and off, when necessary. It is easy to enable it, when you start using the extension and disable, when you need to test your website or perform other important activities.
Set a widget wherever you want on your store. Choose a specific block on any page and assign your widget to it. You are free to decide, which widget will better suit this or that page. Moreover, you are able to assign the same widget to a number of pages to have it displayed on separate places of your store.
When editing a single widget, you will find an option responsible for displaying it on frontend. Thus you are able to hide a particular widget if you want without disabling the whole extension. It also helps in checking the compatibility of the widgets on particular pages and your design.
The extension supports various modes of showing images in a widget: as a usual board, as a grid, and as a slider. Decide which way will better suit your design and implement it to your website.
bThe extension provides you with addition al settings, when you choose a particular type of images representation. For example, you can set the board width and height, if you choose “Pinterest Board” as a type, or a number of rows in columns, when selecting “Images Grid”.
To start using the extension, enable it following Stores > Settings> Configuration > NEKLO > Pinterest. Here you will find all the configurations, applicable to the whole extension. The first and main option you see is “Enabled”. Set here “Yes” to have the extension turned on.
The extension relieves you from constant manual cache removal by adding a special feature of automatic disposal of the cached posts. No you don’t have to monitor the condition of your server in order not to allow the data overload. Set the exact time in seconds for how long the posts will be kept and stop bothering about it.
To setup your first Pinterest Widget, go to Content > Elements > Widgets and press “Add Widget”. You will come across the Widget Creation page. At first, there will be only two available options. Enter relevant information here to proceed to the remaining settings. In “Type” set “[NEKLO] Pinterest Widget” and in ‘Design Theme“ indicate the existing design on your store. Click on “Continue” when everything is ready.
After you have created a widget or chosen the existing one for editing, you will appear on its Storefront Properties tab with the main configurations. “Widget Title” here indicates the name of this widget. It will be displayed in the general widgets table. Then you can assign the widget to Store Views. Don’t forget to set “Sort Order” if you need - it is the instance’s numerical order.
The last option in this tab is “Layout Updates”. It is a huge block, where you can indicate a specific page to display your widget on along with a place on it. The field “Display On” is responsible for setting a page, while other configurations in this block stay in tune with the previous line. All in all, you are free to place your widget almost anywhere on your store. Add multiple Layout Updates for a single widget if you wish.
All the other settings are located in the tab “Widget Options”. The first setting you will see here is called “Is Enabled”. With it you can turn on and off a single widget, leaving the extension in general untouched. “Title” and “Description” serves for additional customization on frontend - you can set the name and add a little description for your widget. “Board ID” means the url of the board you want to take posts from. The example of it is set in the Admin Panel next to the configuration itself. The next setting here is “Type” and it regulates the appearance of posts and images in the widget. There is a number of possible types and we will tell you about all their peculiarities.
The first type is “Pinterest Board”. It displays the posts in the traditional way as it is done on Pinterest website. Here you can adjust the images and board settings: Image Width, Board Width, and Board Height. Every setting here has a default value, but you can adjust here the way you like within the possible limits.
The last type here is a slider. Set the number of displayed images with the first option. It can be from 1 to 100. Then set the number of visible images - the amount that a user will be able to see at once. Then set the slide autostart and step easing the way you like. You can allow the widget to use special navigation dots in a slider with the next setting. The next option is the same as it was in a grid: indicate the way to display pin details and configure the information set, if you choose Lightbox.
The next type is a grid. It allows for deeper customization as at first you can set here the number of images Rows and Columns. You can give your visitors a possibility to see more image with a special button or infinite scroll. You can also prohibit the display of additional images that didn’t fit in the grid. In addition, you can show or hide animation images and set the number of steps for display. Another setting here allows you to show information of an image in a Lightbox, by redirecting to the correspondent Pinterest page, or don’t show at all. If you prefer to use a Lightbox, then set the desired Size and the information source: get a name and an icon from the Board Owner, Pin Source, or don’t show this information at all.
