to show the full store URL at Pinterest they have a verification process. You have to upload a html to your server.

Uploading the file gives the following URL: http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0188/1552/files/pinterest-b578a.html?46

The problem is that Pinterest searches for the following file: http://basics-shirts-tops.myshopify.com/pinterest-b578a.html.

Is there a solution?

Thank you

Stefan

  • Verifying your website lets people see the full URL on your profile and in search results.

  • <label id="replace-label" class="Left" style="display: inline-block; line-height: 1.4em; font-size: 18px; float: none; width: 150px; padding-top: 7px; vertical-align: top;">Instructions</label> 
    Your server responded with a status code of 404 (file not found). We tried to visit the file at http://basics-shirts-tops.myshopify.com/pinterest-b578a.html.

Please read the Pinterest link, they are aware that this is a shortcoming on their verification process and are working on other methods:

I don't really understand what the answer is on this. That it just doesn't work? Are we able to upload html files on Shopify?

that's right, basically until they sort out having an HTML tag that we can add to our theme.liquid, we're stuffed.

Thanks for your response. I think I'll verify my blog instead for now.

Has anyone tried using 301 redirects to accomplish this?  A bit of a hack but it could work.

I'm testing a few methods now and will post back.
