My Pinterest Titles & Captions Aren't Showing

When posting to Pinterest through SmarterQueue, if the titles on your pins aren't showing, please read on for more information! 💪 

Whether or not your pin includes a title and/or caption depends on several factors including the type of media you might have attached to your post (image or video) and if you've also included a link in your post.  

Here is how each type of pin will look on Pinterest based on what you've added to the Post Editor in SmarterQueue.

Types Of Posts

Link + Text

In this example, inside of the Post Editor, we've included both caption text as well as a link:

To make the title and caption text of your pin show for this type of post, you must delete the placeholder [[link]] text inside of the SmarterQueue Post Editor:

If you don't delete this text, then your caption will not show when your content posts to Pinterest.

When you do delete the placeholder [[link]] text, then the title of your pin will be pulled from the metadata of the link you're sharing and the caption of your pin will be the text you insert inside of the Post Editor.  

Here you can see what the pin looks like on Pinterest. The pin's title is the blog title and the caption is the text written in SmarterQueue: 

Image + Text

In this example, inside the Post Editor, we've included both an image as well as caption text:

Note: With this configuration, there is no way to edit the title on Pinterest. Your post will not include a title.

Video + Text (+/-) Link

In this example, inside the Post Editor, we've included a video and caption text. Whether or not you add a link too will not change the title of your pin on Pinterest: 

Here you can see what the pin looks like on Pinterest. The pin's title is 'Video Title' and the caption is the text written in SmarterQueue:
💡 If you'd like to change the title of your pin to something other than Video Title, then you can do so directly inside of Pinterest.

Note: When you add a video to a pin scheduled through SmarterQueue, the video will open to the SmarterQueue video player and look something like this:
