Deleting on Pinterest

Post by Deanna13 » Fri Feb 15, 2019 6:58 pm

Have they changed things at Pinterest?

I've been trying for a couple days to delete some things and I can't find the delete button.

Appreciate any help.

Are you deleting an individual item or an album?  Individual items show a pencil icon in the upper left when you hover over the photo.  Click on that for the option to delete.  For albums, you go to you album home page to delete.  Same deal...click on the pencil under the album when you hover.  Both options are available for me.

Strange...I have had no issues.  You can delete individual items by clicking on the album and having all of the photos show, or by clicking on the actual item.  Both places it shows in the upper left.  That is weird that you are not able to delete.  Try clearing the cookies and stuff on your computer?

Trying logging out and then back in and see if the item is still there. I had a similar issue and it worked.  What was weirder was it was only for that day.  Not sure if I needed an update or if that happened.  That might work too.  Good Luck :)

Thanks for the advice, ladies! I've tried both things and it's still not letting me delete individual pins. I can delete a whole board, but still not getting the edit pencil for individual images.

Have you tried holding your finger on the image you want to delete?  On my phone, if I touch the image, it highlights and gives me the option to move, delete or send!

I'm using my computer, but no that didn't work. I've tried hovering over the image and nothing. Just now while going from board to board, it finally changed and added the edit pencil to the images. YAY!

Thanks for all the advice!

YAY!  I'm glad you got it back :)  So weird though.
