How to enable Thinglink with WordPress

Enabling Thinglink for WordPress is very easy with the Plugin. The plugin is made by ThingLink together with an external developer RJW and then developed further. Go to WordPress and use the plugin directly or  follow this path to enable Thinglink with the plugin:

1. Login to your WordPress account and choose plugins from the left hand side menu

 

2. Click on Add new and add Thinglink as a search phrase


 

3. Make sure that it is the newest version of the plugin and click on Install (Here it shows as Installed)


4. Activate plugin

5. Choose settings, add your Thinglink ID which you can find from here

Now you are all set. Once you browse your blog images, you will see the Thinglink icon in the left hand corner of your imges, click on that an you can edit your tags.

 

UPDATE: Does ThingLink work on WordPress.com?

Thinglink works with sites using WordPress.org. However, enabling Thinglink for blogs hosted on WordPress.com is unfortunately not currently possible.

This is due to the fact that WordPress.com does not allow plugins that contain Javascript code. At this point we do not have a solution for this. However, we are looking for ways to enable Thinglink on WordPress.com as well, and hope that this will be possible at some point!
