Trying to arrange pins in Pinterest 2 pages: [1] 2
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!

I like the idea of your "catio". The problem with allowing cats outside is that you never know what they might get into, and there are predators out there who like to snack on them. I had a Persian cat once that I could not keep in, no matter how hard I tried. He finally disappeared, and I think either a hawk or an owl got him, or perhaps a coyote. I lived on a country road where the speed limit was 45, and you know people were going way over that, so that was one reason I didn't want him going out. Oh, well, some cats just can't be contained.

I live at the end of a private road quite a distance from the county road, so it's safe for pets as far as cars go. However, I fostered a cat for a while and she loved wandering in the fields. When she was finally adopted, it was discovered she was being eaten by ticks. I never felt them on her, poor thing.

(I don't wander the fields either. They're full of deer ticks--Lyme Disease. My son has had to go on antibiotics a couple times, his most recent round of them this past month.)

No coyotes here, but a mountain lion was spotted passing through. Another time, it was a black bear. Even had a wild pig. Country life, don't ya know. So yeah, I'd build a catio.

Yeah, I would stay out of deer tick-infested areas, myself. I used to live on a quiet street in Massachusetts and did a lot of gardening there. Used to get tick bites now and then, but was fortunate not to contract Lyme Disease. My father got it and it got to his brain. Had to go on IV antibiotics for a few weeks. Unfortunately he ended up with dementia because of it. Had a dog that got it, too, but she was fine after a round of antibiotics, although she'd occasionally get flare-ups. It's nothing to mess with, for sure.

always having to be different, I was bitten by a tick that carried, not Lyme Disease, but another sort of nasty called anaplasmosis, which is only beginning to spread across the country. Still rare enough that I got a call from the state board of health wanting to know precisely where I was when the tick got me so they could update their database. Sometimes I miss the good old DDT days.

(Strange software here on the forum. It refuses to capitalize the 'A' in my first word above.)

Have not heard of that one, but have heard of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and another disease carried by ticks that makes a person sick when eating red meat.Shocked

Two years ago, anaplasmosis was found mostly in the Northeast plus Minnesota and Wisconsin. (Looked it up at the CDC.) Apparently, the cases have been growing exponentially and making their way slowly west. How sick does it make you? Enough to bring on a death wish. Enough to give me a fear of back yards.

A neighbor contracted Lyme Disease without being diagnosed until the arthritic affects set in, which are incurable. His only recourse is to get as much daily exercise as he can. I bet he also feels a certain nostalgia for DDT.

But the good news is that I can now move my pins around with impunity.

Glad you got the Pinterest thing figured out, and now all of us who have been following this thread know how to do it. Thanks!

My dog had the arthritic effects of the Lyme Disease. I knew several people back in Mass who ended up getting Lyme Disease. I still worked in my yard and gardens knowing I could possibly get it, myself. Can't stop doing what I love on the chance that I might get a disease. I was always vigilant of tics. I don't think my property had too many, though. We had a flock of wild turkeys who came into the yard and our woods regularly, and I think they ate a lot of the tics.

One of the wild turkeys marching around our yard lurks beneath the bird feeder waiting for goodies to drop. No insects for him, by Jove!

Almost forgot: Pinterest is now looking into the fact that organizing doesn't work with the default display. This doesn't mean they'll do anything about it of course. I suggested an alternate route might be that clicking the Organize button switches the screen to the grid layout, and when done, it switches back to the default layout.
