Can't see or edit descriptions on pins

I'm not sure how long I have had the issue.

It's really frustrating because I can't find any clear information about it. Is this the way it's now supposed to work? I hope someone from the company can give us an update. Another person I know doesn't have the issue so I'm really confused why it's not clear what's going on with it.

It would be great to know if it is an intentional change or if it's just a glitch that hasn't been looked into.

Is this issue only happening on business accounts?

Definitely not happening only on business accounts, and not only on new accounts either. I post some of my Etsy listings on my personal Pinterest account that I've had since 2012. I'm seeing these glitches or "improvements" too.

IT'S HAPPENING TO ME TOO!

And it's definitely not happening only on business accounts, or only on new accounts. I post some of my Etsy listings on my personal Pinterest account (my only account) that I've had since 2012. I'm seeing these glitches or "improvements" too.

Mostly I use Pinterest for my hobby; historical fashion. I used to be able to see what year a particular item was from at a glance because the title was always there. Now many titles are gone, you can't find the info if you click on the pin, and you can't edit it, either. On many pins, I'll attempt to edit the title (which shows up at first) and after a few seconds, boom! It's gone. 

This is ridiculous, Pinterest! I know you can do better! PLEASE PUT IT BACK!

This is a follow-up to my comment the other day. I realize that I was working on my desktop computer, I went to the Pinterest iphone app.

Oddly enough it will allowed me to post a description or make edits on the description to the public as opposed to just a note to self on the phone.

 

Maybe the issue is only on desktop computers?

Oh, my gosh! Thank you Suezart! You figured out a solution!! Editing the description on my Android phone works!

Whoops. So far it hasn't synced with my desktop. Ann

I have the same problem, but I see the option to edit for all my newer pins that I created with a headline etc. I wonder if we can only edit pins' url and titles for pins that were created after we converted to a Business profile?

Same issue here. I've tried in my laptop computer, my iPad, and my iPhone. I was able to update the description using my iPad but it won't let me format it at all. It's all in one line and either all bolded or not at all. What a mess!!!

I have the issue with a fresh new pin I created today. I don't get the section Description and when I do then it's all in the same line. I can't bold or change the sizes of the fonts, indent, etc. I was trying to list materials for a DIY project.

This has become an issue for me as of last night.  Is there something I can do to bring back the option of including a Title and Description?  Thank you!

Hey there, I don't have a solution but I may have a potential workaround!

I work on the chrome browser on my windows laptop and have used the safari browser in the past on a macbook. I found that the option to edit descriptions wasn't available on either of these however I did find that I could edit them on my Ipad tablet using the pinterest app. It may be worth swapping out browsers/devices if possible to see if it's an option.

Hope it can be helpful to someone.
