    i just bought pinboard and want to put a picture slideshows on the header (with a headline and little words), which readers can click it and go to the selected feature feeds directly, how can i do that ? thxxxx!

    The blog I need help with is lawlu.wordpress.com


    Hi there. I’m afraid something like this isn’t possible. Did you see this somewhere else on a Pinboard-themed blog or are you asking in general?



    yes i saw some demonstration on pinboard :


    i want my blog like this way, hv a pic slide show on top so wonder can i ,

    is it possible? or i need to buy other custom thing?

    Howdy! The theme you’ve noted is a different Pinboard theme; it just happens to have the same name as the theme on WordPress.com, but does not have the same design or include the same features (like the slider).

    You would need to move to a self-hosted WordPress blog (off WordPress.com) to use the other Pinboard theme.

    I hope this clarifies!



    Hi lawlu, do you still need help or are you all set?



    hi..no i stopped to use as i still want to hv a slideshow on the beginning of the blog, i tried to visit a web which can download the template i want, but seems it need to do some coding, dunno how to do…

    any suggestions?

    Howdy @lawlu, if you’ve downloaded a theme or template, you won’t be able to use it on WordPress.com. We don’t allow users to upload their own themes; the only themes for WordPress.com are the ones in the Theme Showcase.

    You can read about the differences between WordPress.com and WordPress.org here:


    I hope this clarifies! I’m going to close this topic and mark it as resolved, since the original question has been answered. If you have further questions about Pinboard, please don’t hesitate to create a new topic. Thanks!
