According to the Pinterest website in order to add the Pinterest button to any page I have to add the following just below the closing body tag:

<script type="text/javascript" src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>

What's the best way to do this?

Should I follow the link, grab the script and use wp_enqueue_script? Or can I somehow include the script element another way?



Yes, you have to use wp_enqueue_script function. Pass $in_footer argument as true and your script will be added before closing body:

function my_scripts_method() {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'pinterest', '//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js', array(), false, true);
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_scripts_method' );
  • Actually the url gave me a 404 error, but that's exactly what was on the pinterest page. When I added the fully qualified url it gave me the script. Am I missing something? – jw60660 Jun 7 '12 at 4:52
  • @jw60660 Don't know, use fully qualified script. – Eugene Manuilov Jun 7 '12 at 5:20
