I have tried 4 times to have Pinterest validate my website so I can “claim” it. I watched the wordpress.org video, several times, on how to accomplish this. Nothing works. Yes, tried using SOE Yoast to enter the code.
I got this message from Pinterest, “We couldn’t find the HTML meta tag or verification file on your site. Be sure to paste the HTML meta tag in the <head> section of your site’s homepage, or upload the verification file to your site’s root directory. Try again or get help.”
How do I “paste the HTML meta tag in the <head> section of your site’s homepage?” What steps do I take?
Could the problem be that my site is not yet live?
Thank you for your help.February 24, 2020 at 12:47 pm #1175661LeoStaffCustomer Support
Try using the wp_head hook with hooks element:
Let me know if this helps 🙂February 24, 2020 at 12:51 pm #1175671Annie
Thank you for helping.
As I said in another Support Forum question, I can’t find “Elements” under the Appearance menu to make any changes. I am using GP Premium Classic and that option does not show up. Any idea what’s wrong?February 24, 2020 at 12:53 pm #1175673LeoStaffCustomer SupportFebruary 24, 2020 at 1:28 pm #1175702Annie

What do I set the Display Rules to, please? It says to “Paste this tag into the <head> section of your site’s index.html file.”February 24, 2020 at 3:01 pm #1175741LeoStaffCustomer SupportFebruary 24, 2020 at 3:46 pm #1175773Annie
Does the hook go into the wp_head setting or where/which setting? It says to “Paste this tag into the <head> section of your site’s index.html file,” but I don’t know where that is. Can you direct me, please?February 24, 2020 at 4:08 pm #1175778LeoStaffCustomer Support
wp_headhook does go into the
<head>section of your site:
Simply copy and paste the code in a hook element and select
wp_headhook should work.February 24, 2020 at 4:22 pm #1175782Annie
Thank you and done. I’ll close out this help ticket once Pinterest confirms validation of my site.
I wanted to add that I truly do appreciate you all for the help and guidance you offer me.February 24, 2020 at 4:38 pm #1175791LeoStaffCustomer SupportJuly 29, 2020 at 12:36 am #1380106Jacob
I’m not sure I should reply to this thread or open a new one. Beside that, I’m having the same problem as the OP. However, I tried the above mention and it doesn’t work.
I am going to try to explain this as detail as possible:
1) The type of element is hook
2) The location is the entire site
3) In the setting category, the Hook is WP_Head
4) In the Display Rule, the location is set to Entire Site
Here are the screenshots
