Why Are Some Draft Pins Missing Pinterest Source URLs?
Quoted from the awesome chat support team (Kudos to Emily) these URL errors are products of “Composite” pins.
“When a Pin is Composite, it means that the Source URL of that pin is hidden and Tailwind’s scheduling extension can’t see it right away. In order for us to “see it”, simple hover over the pin with your mouse! This happens to Rich Pins, Promoted Pins, Related Pins and even just random regular Pins!”
Here’s How to Fix Tailwind Draft Pins Missing Pinterest Source URLs
- Hover your mouse over a Pin before scheduling.
- Schedule as normal with the Tailwind Scheduling Extension!
