Hi, David Law. You might have to contact the maintainers of Pinterest on that note. Is https://www.pinterest.com/imdbofficial/ the only hub where the problem manifests? Maybe you could try using your own Pinterest user account to contacting the administrator of the IMDb Pinterest.

The Pinterest share button seems to work when using the IMDb mobile browser site, but not the IMDb app.

It's definitely IMDb-specific in that case.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Pinterest is blocking IMDb images.

Over the last two days, when attempting to pin an image from IMDb , the following error message is displayed:

Sorry! We blocked this link because it may lead to spam.

I've tried using Firefox, Chrome and Microsoft Edge, using the official Pinterest button and an add-on in Firefox because the Pinterest button doesn't work correctly, and attempted to pin various different images on IMDb, all with the same result.

Nothing has changed since it was last working.

I have also sent a similar message to Pinterest regarding this issue.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the update, Steve. It's working fine now in the desktop version. Pinterest didn't bother to respond to me.

New issue but still related to Pinterest. Over the last few days, when trying to share an image on Pinterest, the right-click menu is no longer displayed using Firefox Ver. 65, suggesting it's been disabled. The right-click menu with the Pin option appears in Chrome Ver. 73, but it does nothing after clicking on it. The right-click menu with the Pin option appears in Edge and does work.

I can still share an image using the Pinterest button on the Firefox and Chrome toolbars, which displays thumbnails of all pinnable images, and from there, the required image can be chosen.

So, is the righ-click menu issue a problem with Firefox and Chrome or IMDb, or both? TIA.

BTW: GetSatisfaction doesn't work on Firefox either. Just a black screen is displayed. I had to use Chrome. I've never had an issue where an add-on caused a problem and I don't have many installed.
