So pleased to see that the root cause of the Pinterest Rich Pins issue has been addressed and pins are now rich again.

The nIFFTy scheduler has been re-enabled now that it's fixed.

Spoke too soon...
Between Pinterest and Zazzle, weird stuff is going on. I'm on pinterest.co.uk and today (UK time) nothing freshly posted with a zazzle.com link is rich. If I change the .com to .co.uk on the link in Pinterest it turns rich. If I change it to zazzle.ca or zazzle.fr then sometimes it turns rich, sometimes not. (I chose those domains at random).

Changing them back to .com makes them un-rich, unlike yesterday when they stayed rich.

As I said, weird.

A little more info...
All this business about changing to .co.uk and back is misleading. What that (often) does is force a re-scrape from Zazzle and it's the re-scrape that's key.
Under some circumstances, if Pinterest has both .com and .co.uk in cache as not rich then swapping between them will have no effect (and if it's out of stock, it won't work any which way).
Today I've been experimenting on non-rich pins by simply adding a character to the tracking code. Pinterest sees that as a 'new' Zazzle product (url) and so re-scrapes - exactly what we're after and you get a rich pin.

At least that's today's behaviour and conclusion.

Over the past couple of weeks, I've been using your fantastic nifty tool to populate some new Pinterest boards. I did a random click through on products on the boards this morning and some had maintained the rich status, some had not.
Not sure why. I'll keep pinning though as I think I may have just had a sale from a board link Smile
Keep up your great work Mark, must be so frustrating for you to think you have it sorted, then things change :/

FYI, I get what's going on and I'm good with that, so long as the items are different.
Posted: Monday, February 12, 2018 2:08:09 PM
I'm looking into it right now. I think I know what's happening but need to check

THank you!

Like I said, I'm okay with the gist of what's happening, but no one wants 2 of everything that close together on their boards.

Sadly, no. There's no incentive for me to do so as affiliating is via sharesale. There is one for Society6, though.
Posted: Tuesday, February 27, 2018 5:21:18 AM
Thank you. I appreciate your quick reply. I have signed up for Society6, but only have a few items on there. I need to do more on there. :-)

Another question, if you don't mind, is there a limit to the number of IFTTT applets you can create to send Zazzle products to a particular blog? I imagine one wouldn't want too many posts a day...

One IFTTT applet can send up to 12 posts per day to a blog. If it's your blog I guess that's ok but I wouldn't do that to someone else's.
To minimize impact on my server I've only allowed 10 applets per day per person (it's there under the help button in the IFTTT Share Scheduler section).
So, to answer your question, yes, you could have up to ten IFTTT applets, each sending from a different department/category/collection/search to a particular blog.

I've written a blog post to show off the new styling changes to the Nifty slideshows (widget used in post).
When you use the slideshow widget in your blog posts, you get the first image in the slideshow as the one that gets used when you share on Facebook, Pinterest and GooglePlus - but not Twitter, unfortunately.

All existing ones will automatically use the new styling but only new widgets willl give you the image-share feature.

Make your own here: http://www.kdl.to/nifty-slideshows.html

Thanks for the feedback Roses

As the image isn't linked, do make sure you include the url ingredient in the tweet text of the applet. An example one of mine looks like this when you click in the tweet text box:
Quote:

{{EntryUrl}} A {{EntryTitle}} that's perfect for that #summer feel - a #feminine #lifestyle design. #watercolor #splatter #summer


Here's one using the above: https://twitter.com/hightonridley/status/972942805021667329

I recently made some applets for tweeting and forgot! Easy to do ;)
(I've edited them to include the ingredient now and all is well)

I got confused - my comments were about tweeting using the scheduler. You were talking about the individual product sharer and those comments don't apply.

I've updated the slideshow sharer to fix a bug-ette that had slipped through the net when sharing on Twitter or Facebook.

I've fixed it now but before: if you shared a slidesehow it would use the first product's image as the one appearing on either Facebook or Twitter - great, that was as intended.
BUT if you went on to do a search (using the slideshow's search box) and then shared the resulting slideshow, then the ORIGINAL image was used in the share and not one from the new slideshow.

As I said, now fixed.
Posted: Saturday, March 24, 2018 3:42:43 AM
As of date of posting, rss feeds (and hence Nifty) don't work properly with search terms. If your search term doesn't include a product name, then put "gifts" (no quotes) on the end of your search term as a work-around.

There's a reminder right at the top of the Nifty page, a place I'm using for such announcements.
Posted: Tuesday, April 24, 2018 1:43:54 PM
always nice to hear how Nifty is helping folks. I just got this feedback (paraphrasing):
Quote:
another two Z referrals today via nIFTTTy totaling $6.28 and almost $30 so far for the month. Best referral month I've had in years!

Posted: Sunday, May 20, 2018 7:57:39 AM
...and BK Thompson gave me permission to quote this from her about the nIFTTTy Scheduler:
Quote:
I'm telling you (and everyone!) that the subscription pays for itself! My referrals have skyrocketed since switching to the subscription plan. You've made a truly "nifty" thing!


Thankyou, BK Roses

I've updated the nIFTTTy Scheduler tool so that behind the scenes it adds the current date to your chosen tracking code when it pins / shares.
Posted: Thursday, July 05, 2018 2:50:31 AM
Another update to the nIFTTTy scheduler tool - it now displays the current time in GMT/Internet Time so you'll find it easier to choose your scheduling times, which are also interpreted as GMT/Internet Time.

Same change has been made to the nIFTTTy Pid scheduler.
Posted: Thursday, July 05, 2018 12:22:37 PM
...and one more update. A few replies ago I said that the current date would be added to your tracking code when a pinshare was made.

That date is in US date format mmddyy. I've now added a check box to the scheduler so that you can choose the UK date format instead ddmmyy



I've made the same change to the nIFTTTy Pid Scheduler.
Posted: Sunday, August 05, 2018 11:29:13 AM
I've just completed a major revamp of Nifty to add filters to all the tools (but not to the Slideshow sharer page nor to the Product Grid sharer page).

The main reason for developing this filtered approach is to be ready for when Zazzle fixes pulling feeds from the market place. Once they do that, the filters will come in really handy to filter out those "create your own" products. Or maybe to remove anything to do with politics, or religion or anything else you want to avoid for whatever reason.

Each revamped tool has had any adverts removed. They weren't bringing in any revenue and I need to pay for my web server! So each revamped tool now works on a referral commission sharing basis. All that means is that there's a 50/50 chance of my referral id replacing yours in a product link.

Of course, if one of your items sells as a result of someone following one of the links, you'll still get 100% of the royalty fee due.

If you pay for a subscription, your referral id is never replaced, so you keep it all. What some have done is to run with the free one and only switch to a subscription once they see that their referral income is enough to cover it. A risk free approach!


I'd love to hear any feedback, suggestions etc, so don't be shy!
Roses



I've written a blog post describing things in more depth and supported by screenshots. Have a look at:

Posted: Friday, August 10, 2018 9:53:34 AM
I've added two more schedule buttons to the nIFTTTy Scheduler and nIFTTTy Pid Scheduler tools.
They are "spread later am" and "spread later pm" where the spread doesn't start til 4:20am and 4:20pm respectively.

I had a report of missing images in the Nifty Promo Control Panel. I've got to the bottom of it. Some products, I think it's just the new paper breakout ones, use a different way of specifying images. That messed up the part of my code that works with the images.
I've fixed it now. I've tested that it hasn't had any unintended consequences but if you have any issues, don't hesitate to report it in this thread.
