Toggle Pinterest Comments

This no longer works with the new Pinterest layout. I am attempting to find a solution and will update here when I do.

This bookmarklet enables you to toggle the visibility of comments on Pinterest.com. This allows for a more peaceful and productive pinning experience by removing the noise and increasing the number of pins you can view at once. Let me know what you think.

    Muy Interesante ¡¡¡¡¡

  15. I wasn’t able to drag and drop the bookmarklet into my bookmarks, but was able to right click on it and select Add to Favorites. With that said…OMG why isn’t this a standard feature in Pintrest?! It’s terrific – thank you so much!!

  16. perfect! Love it – thank you.

  17. Works in Safari for me!

  18. Excellent!! This works a-okay in Chrome. Thanks for this. :)

  19. Thanks Craig! I love this bookmarklet and have been using it all the time with Pinterest since I found out about it 3 days ago. I use it both Chrome and Firefox on Mac OS X.

    I tried modifying it to toggle the descriptions as well, but no luck. Is that possible?

    • Here’s everything turned off but the images – you can re-add what you want:

      javascript:(function()%7Bfunction%20toggle()%7Bif(!window.___sc)%7B%24(%27head%27).append(%27%3Cstyle%20id%3D%22___sc%22%3Ediv.pin%20div.comments,%20div.pin%20div.attribution,%20div.pin%20p.description,%20div.pin%20p.AttributionSource,%20div.pin%20p.stats,%20div.pin%20.write%20%7B%20display:%20none%20!important%3B%20%7D%3C/style%3E%27)%3B%7Delse%7B%24(%27style%23___sc%27).remove()%3B%7D%24(window).resize()%3B%7Dwindow.___sc%3D!(window.___sc%3D%3D%3Dundefined%3Ftrue:window.___sc)%3Bif(!%24.isReady)%7B%24(document).ready(toggle)%3B%7Delse%7Btoggle()%7D%7D)()%3B

    great! thanks

  21. was talked into pintrest… and now I’m hooked – this seriously makes it a pleasure!! thank you, thank you!!

  22. Hi Craig,
    I have been using Toggle PInterest Comments for a few months and the images used to move up so I could see more of them and now the comments just disappear and the images don’t move. Did something change?? I am using firefox 14.0.1

    thanks a bunch!!

    Lisa~

  23. This is great! Make everything so much cleaner. I was going to just keep using Juxtapost instead of Pinterest, despite the limited users.

  24. People are sending me comments and I do not know where to look to find comments, please help.

  25. Do you have a link to work on my tablet?

  26. Мария says:

    Чудесно, удобно (работает в Chrome). Благодарна.

  27. Great feature. But, It no longer works with new Pinterest layout.

    • Awesome. I used to have this until my laptop melted down. I missed it. Thank you. I don’t understand why it’s not working for Jim with the new layout. I have a new laptop with Windows 8 and Mozilla 20. I think. Or maybe Firefox 20? I don’t know cuz my son in law installed it. Anyway, I’m toggling the comment with the new Pinterest layout. Go figure. Thank you again for the bookmarklet. I also don’t like the catty, negative comments but I would get sucked in to them in disbelief. I just don’t believe the things people nit pic about. I do have one thing that I would like to comment on. I wish people would leave the description of the pin alone for the rest of us and add their personal description after.

    • Craig Fifield says:

      sadly that is correct. I’m looking for a solution but it might not be feasible with the new layout!
