Tasty Pins integration for Shared Counts

Tasty Pins is a popular plugin for optimizing your content for Pinterest. It includes a feature to specify a Pinterest-specific image and description, just like the Shared Counts – Pinterest Image addon.

 */
function be_shared_counts_tasty_pin_image( $image_url, $id, $link ) {
	if( 'pinterest' != $link['type'] )
		return $image_url;

	$pinterest_image = get_post_meta( $id, 'tp_pinterest_hidden_image', true );
	if( !empty( $pinterest_image ) )
		$image_url = wp_get_attachment_image_url( $pinterest_image, 'full' );

	return $image_url;
}
add_filter( 'shared_counts_single_image', 'be_shared_counts_tasty_pin_image', 10, 3 );

/**
 * Pinterest description from Tasty Pins
 *
 */
function be_shared_counts_tasty_pin_desc( $link, $id, $style ) {
	if( 'pinterest' !== $link['type'] )
		return $link;

	$description = get_post_meta( $id, 'tp_pinterest_default_text', true );
	if( empty( $description ) )
		return $link;

	$url = explode( 'description=', $link['link'] );
	$link['link'] = $url[0] . 'description=' . rawurlencode( wp_strip_all_tags( $description ) );
	return $link;
}
add_filter( 'shared_counts_link', 'be_shared_counts_tasty_pin_desc', 10, 3 );
