Pinned is a virtual pin board that lets you organize places, pictures and videos that members have found either on the internet or experienced in the real world. Members can grab any content from any website in just one click, all they need to do is drag the “pin it” button to their toolbar and click on it when they want to select something from a web page they are on.

Alternatively users can simply just upload content direct from their mobile device or computer. Members can then share, connect, follow and browse pin boards created by other people within the pinned community (and vice versa). People tend to use pin boards to plan weddings, family parties, events or special occasions. Whereas others may use them to store home improvement ideas, cooking recipes, favourite cars, holiday destinations and so on.

You can invite other people to contribute to shared pin boards, or you can keep your passions private by making boards secret at the click of a button, and share posts with just a select few. Whereas other solutions only offer a finite number of such boards, Pinned offers unlimited access to this great feature.

Pricing Tags with Multi-Currency Support

Pinned can automatically capture prices, whenever they appear combined with a recognised currency symbol. The price will be displayed in the upper right corner of each monetised post, and is automatically converted into the currency of the user.

No duplicate content

Pinned reduces the number of repeated posts and irrelevant search results by not displaying repins in the category, landing and search pages.

Optional Account Verification Emails

This option presents a form of bot-protection, by sending a unique email link to each new subscriber. Unless that user receives the message and clicks the link, the new account will not be activated, helping you to avoid spammers from infiltrating the Pinned website.

Improved Security

We talked to our customers to find out how they felt our security systems could be improved. Based on their feedback, we’ve updated a lot of the components making Pinned safer for both users and admins alike.

Apache and NGINX Support

For a number of years Pinned has been running on both Apache and NGINX, the two most popular web servers available. With over 70% of the top websites on their books, both servers offer a robust and reliable solution for your website. Since it first came to be in 1995, Apache has reached the #1 spot on the market, with over a billion websites running on it today. NGINX is a newer, lightweight solution, intended to power websites with extremely high visitor count while requiring minimum server resources.


Pinned uses a scalable architecture that enables it to run on both budget setups, and distributed computing solutions. Regardless of the load, you’ll always be using the same software solution, without the need to customize it in any way. This scalable approach is set to considerably reduce the starting and running costs.

Registration, log-in, sharing, OAuth actions, finding and inviting friends, you name it! Pinned also features full support for Twitter. Additionally, we’ve added a “Share It” button for almost 300 social sites, to ensure that your users are able to share your content far and wide across the web.

Unlimited Marketing Potential

Pinned is a powerful promotional tool, with plenty of clever streams for additional revenue: featured and VIP pins, the Power User, product filters and the banner ad system (these modules are available separately). Even the basic site structure is geared up towards driving more sales, with unlimited categories and subcategories in which to sell your products or services. Let your users market your business for you with their likes, comments, re-pins and shares to social networks! Our Pinned website supports full integration with social networks, as well as a wide range of language options. There is no limit to the number of languages supported – both left-to-right and right-to-left script can be featured on the same site, and with unique meta tags for each of them too.

Unlimited Categories and Subcategories

The category hierarchy has no limit on the number of levels available. The complete control of the category system also helps the administrator to target the advertisements that appear on the site.

Integrated Translation Management Console

Unlike many other scripts that boast about how they can be translated using language pack-in files, the Pinned translation system is an integral part of the administrative panel. Simply select which interface you want to translate, pick the language and make your changes – they’ll be visible instantly, once you’ve clicked the “Save” button.


When it comes to loading times, Pinned is in a class of its own. Thanks to carefully optimised queries, a streamlined search engine and a choice of several different cache types pins and pages load over 10x faster than other pin board scripts! Listing pins within a board is also much faster, making the user experience a treat.

Easy to install

To ensure that your Pinned website works properly, the automatic installer will also check if your server is compatible with the requirements. If there are no warnings, just enter the database and administrator credentials and push the Install button. The system will complete the rest of the work for you.

Module-Based System

Most of our customers require custom modifications. In the past, these meant their systems were impossible to update automatically, as those custom modifications would be overwritten each time. The Pinned website on the other hand, is a fully modular system which means that the site can benefit from new updates whenever we issue a patch or a new version.

MemCached and APC Support

One of the reasons Pinned is so fast, is the usage of memory object caching. The administrators can pick between memcached and APC, depending on their setup and preferences. The change is done through the admin panel – no other server settings are required.
