Welcome to the Community, @Redraven!

Ah, yes it looks like we don’t get the URL to the actual image itself so you wouldn’t be able to select that from the WordPress trigger. We’ve got a feature request open for the ability to get a direct link to the image so I’ve added your vote for that. We’ll be sure to email you and post an update in the thread here as soon as that becomes available.

In the meantime, you could try adding a Webhooks by Zapier action to retrieve the image. You’ll want to select the Custom Request action event, set the Method to be GET and select the Links Wp Featuredmedia Href field from your WordPress trigger. That should look something like this:

When you test the action you should then see the URL to the image in the guid rendered field:
You can then select that guid rendered field on the Pinterest action. That should allow the post image to be added to Pinterest. Hope that helps, please do let us know whether that does the trick! 🙂

I will give that a shot thanks! I think being able to pull the image is a big help especially trying to get pinterest to work. Another feature i’d like if it doesn’t exist is the ability to pull a posts categories or tags and insert them as hashtags into a social media post description.

Hi folks, 

I have good news - the latest version of the WordPress app now provides the Feature Media URL and all the Media URLs linked to your posts! 😁🎉

Hope that helps! That said, if you experience any issues accessing those urls please do reach out in the Community or get in touch with Support directly. In the meantime, happy Zapping! ⚡
