While this extension works reasonably well, I can not recommend anything related to pinboard. Pinboard looked promising 5 years ago, when I paid for an archival account. Now that my subscription is ending, I can not get Pinboard to send me my archive. Emails went unanswered, my post to the pinboard google support group was not approved, dm on twitter was unanswered. A public comment on twitter got me a reply that he'd "look into it", then nothing. Maciej is infamous these days for his complete lack of customer support -- I've had multiple unanswered emails over the past 5 years. The official Pinboard twitter account is a mess of political rants. Save your money -- and your bookmarks -- and look elsewhere. My current recommendation is raindrop.io
No support and it's flaky. I am not going to renew
Broken in Chrome 79. Prompts for login when attempting to bookmark when already logged in.
Nice and simple to use. Two issues: It does not close when a bookmark is saved AND it does not indicate if the site is already saved, for example by showing a blue needle.
What a relief to find this... however I agree seeing that blank page after the first save was disconcerting.
This extension works great on the whole. (In fact I probably wouldn't be able to use PinBoard without it, since I could never figure out PinBoard's own instructions for saving pages.) As many users have noted, when an article is saved, a blank pop-up window remains, an obvious and annoying bug. Other than that, no complaints.
Has become very slow, previously has been working for years. Now when clicking save, it will take 3-10 seconds to load the next interface where I can enter info about a pin. Aside from recent slowness this is 5 stars.
Exactly what I need, functional (if not "pretty").
Same as other reviewers: works but the post-save blank page definitely doesn't give one a sense of "Yes, my link just saved correctly".
I'll echo the other reviewers. It works perfectly fine, but the blank page after the save is unintuitive and I sometimes feel impelled to go check to ensure it was actually saved. Pretty amazing that it hasn't been updated in ~6 years though and still works as advertised.
Seriously, fix the bug that causes the popup not to close when a bookmark is saved. Ffs.
Works fine. Kinda ugly. It's annoying that the popup doesn't close when the bookmark is saved.
I use "Save tab set" for a little help in handling the out-of-control overpopulation of tabs that reflects my disorganized mind always veering dangerously close to a breakdown. It's also handy to find a tab when I have 50 tabs open in 7 windows.
I like it so far, but the empty white box it leaves behind after saving a new bookmark is super annoying. I'd also like the ability to Cmd+click (or similar) to automatically open the "Save to Pinboard" screen, instead of having to click the icon then click the "Save to Pinboard" menu item.
When I click "Save to Pinboard" literally nothing happens. It doesn't even respond to the click.
The popup doesn't close automatically :(
It's OK. Pinboard Plus is better.
Works great for me.
Love the new hi-res icon, thanks!
Any chance you can add a hotkey function that opens the add bookmark. I know there's an extension out there but it not the best.
I was excited to install this plugin but the "Save to Pinboard" isn't working but "Read Later" does work... not sure why.
The dropdown from the toolbar button no longer display correctly 90% of the time on Chrome 31 on OS X 10.9.1.
Please, PLEASE add a keyboard shortcut to save a page to pinboard!
Basic editing doesn't work as expected. Adding tags to a note doesn't autocomplete them when you hit tab. Also, when you click Save, the popup window stays open. If the user experience is fixed a bit, it will be very good.
This is my favorite of all Pinboard extensions. You can Save, Read later, and access the pages you want to within Pinboard without any hassle.
Can we please get an update? The popup doesn't close once a bookmark has been saved. Frustrating. Also, its a bit ugly... Could you allow custom styling also? pretty please?
Everything that I would want from a Pinboard extension, and nothing more. Used daily if not hourly.
Gives a error when I try to add a pinboard on addpinboard.js "pbdescription is not defined", any update???
Works but not that fast and doesn't always close after submitting a bookmark.
Like M.K. Lutz, I use this extension every day, on all my machines - it's definitely the best Pinboard extension out there for Chrome. I also just wish that the post-save page still worked, as the empty page is rather disturbing (did it save? Should I try again?).
I use this extension every day and it's great, except lately after it saves a bookmark instead of refreshing to the saved box I just get an empty white pop up. It's really annoying.
This extension is not work in chrome 17.0.942.0 dev :(
Feature request - include option to delete bookmark on pop-up. For example if I use the "random unread page" bookmarklet - then once I have read the article I may wish to un-pin it. Easiest way to do this would be by using this extension.
