Why Pinterest Idea Pin , Can't show the tags?

New member

Just recently I found Pinterest Idea pin this new function.


When I first tried 2 weeks ago, all goes well.

Just recenly when I create a new idea pin- short videos,

when I write a tag, or three tags, there're nothing happened, not a deep blue box to show you tag is choosen. Ans today I refresh the page, I saw nothing tags are wrote there.

It looks like some bugs happened.


I guess because my second idea pin does't have tags I choose, so the exposure is low.

How about you guys? Have met same situation?


Thank you.

Hi Stella, 

Ideas Pins (previously Story pins) continue to be temperamental. Some of the issues that can come up from time to time: 

  1. Board list not appearing/loading
  2. Pins take too long to upload once you try to save the Story/Idea
  3. Tags do not show up or the first tag can be saved and then the tags disappear so you cannot choose more. 

I find that this can be frustrating and to avoid wasting time, I usually stop trying and revisit Pinterest after a few hours. Something that seems to work also is switch from Desktop to Mobile - so when I have issues on Desktop I just go on my mobile and try to upload my Idea pin. To speed things up (as it is more tricky to add text on mobile), I prepare my idea pins on CANVA and then just add them on mobile as separate pages. 

Hope this helps!
