Trying to arrange pins in Pinterest
Posted: Monday, August 12, 2019 9:40:40 AM
Is there a trick to moving a pin next to another one and not having a bunch of nearby pins go completely out of order? Let's say I have a red grouping and a green grouping, and I add a new red pin, wanting it with the other red ones. When I move it, other reds or greens jump ship into the wrong spots, so I try to move one, which works until I try to move another one.

Does this bother anyone else, and if so, have you figured out how to get your pins to stay where you've placed them?

Yes it is highly annoying to me!

The last thing I want to do is wrestle with my pins... I only have a few boards where the organizing matters but it is still a huge pia!

Sometimes it is easier to temporarily move the pins that you wantt out of the way to another board. Put in thenew pin and then move the ohers back in the order you want them.

Their system of drag n drop is totally dysfunctional. I wish they would upgrade their platform to deal with the issues surrounding organizing boards. But I get the sense that it's not a priority. I wrote to them a long time ago and never heard a word.

I almost did something similar today, deleting everything from the board, then reloading it in the order I wanted. Instead, I went to the supermarket where I could drag stuff off the shelves and drop it in the cart.

Imagine what it would be like if drag-and-drop in our graphics programs worked like on Pinterest.

Agreed, it's a mess. A difference in the length of a title seems enough to throw things off (one line, vs. two). If you mix products and collections, you're in for a real treat (not!)

Hmm. Now the product images aren't showing up for anything new that I add to Pinterest. Tried clearing cache, etc. - but nope, not cooperating.

I guess that means I'm done for today.

I discovered yesterday that if I moved a pin just one space, then one more, then another, and so on, it might jump around a little, but it often settled in. However, moving up or down a row meant all bets were off.

It works fine on my iPhone. I think the solution is for you to go buy a smartphone, Colorwash 😜😜😜

I just sent off a message about the jumping pins to Pinterest through their Help thingamabob. The message is probably being routed via a star in the Big Dipper.

I answered in your other thread, but it’s because the pins are different sizes that you get the crazy jumpy around. On a phone when you want to rearrange them, you get a screen where they are all the same size. You can move with ease.

Yup, and I just realized the same thing, but it can be done on a standard computer screen. On a lark, I clicked the button directly to the left of "Organize." It's the one with rows of gray squares, and if clicked, it makes all the images small and square. I moved things around without any trouble at all. Hallelujah!

Really? I just got up from a nap.

First nap, you mean. Ya gotta plan better! Laughing

All my naps are unplanned. I never know when one of them will hit.

Lol and mine... all of them and the cats too!

Ps. I run a home for geriatric dogs it seems like... I have four that are over 10 years old now, and a cat that is almost 8.

I'm sure you're aware that cats can live into their twenties. One of my friends had a cat that lived to twenty-one. He lost all his teeth and meowed with a lisp.

Yes I did know that, but for some reason here in Oklahoma even altered cats like mine that are indoor outdoor cats, well fed and doctored still don't seem to live that long.

I am not sure why... if it is the climate or if they get hold of poisoned mice or if they lick antifreeze off of the pavement under peoples cars... but I have had several that were 3 or 4 years old who would usually stay in the yard and were neutered but one day they just didn't come home and I never saw them again. I went looking on the side of the busy street about a block away but never saw them... so I just don't know. Glad my latest cats are really homebodies and stay inside most of the time.

Oh, and speaking of toothless, three of my dogs have to be spoonfed for that reason. Grin

A lot of vets claim that, if you want your cat to live a long life, don't let them outdoors. To my mind, there are pros and cons to this. The pro is for the owner, but is it for the cat? If I had more money and if the two guys in this house weren't allergic to cats, I'd build a really big "catio" and adopt a couple rambunctious felines. They could stay in or go out (safely) as the mood struck them.

Your poor doggies!
