Auckland: Now that Pinterest is the third most visited social network in the US, some startups are seizing the chance to ease pinning across the web.
Case in point: WP Pinner, an all-in-one Pinterest tool for users of the blogging platform WordPress.
WP Pinner, started, is a plug-in built for WordPress users to share material on Pinterest. Installing WP Pinner will increase a dashboard to the blog's admin area.
The dashboard shows the board name, date posts, clicks, likes and number of repins. From here, WordPress publishers can also list pins and automatically follow users intermingling with their pinboards.
Creators of WP Pinner, Wilco de Kreij and Mark Ramos, based in The Netherlands, were inspired by the success of Pinterest analytics tool Pinerly.
“I noticed there weren't any really good tools around to manage my accounts,” said de Kreij. "Since I’m doing pretty much everything with WordPress these days, an integrated tool seemed like the best fit.”
With team's first release of the beta, the only features obtainable will be auto-pinning and tracking statistics.

The team expects to go live in a few weeks with more features, counting pinning and tracking non-WordPress posts, multiple account support and detailed statistics. For now, the plug-in will only work on self-hosted WordPress websites on WordPress.org.
WordPress.com only lets plugins from the official WordPress plugin directory. Check out this video that explains what you can do with the Pinterest plug-in for WordPress.
