New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on September 01, 2022) follows:
Pinterest is an image-sharing social media platform that is used for various purposes like discovering new places, recipes, trends and ideas.
The Pinterest widget was released on October 26, 2020 for iOS users as a way for them to customize their home screen.
It lets users continuously update their home screen aesthetic by allowing them to select and display their favorite content.
Pinterest widget not working on iOS devices
This issue occurs when users try to edit the parameters of the widget on an iOS device. An error message pops up that says ‘No options were provided for this parameter’.
It appears that the problem is not limited to a specific version of iOS or a model of the iPhone series.
I’m trying to add a pinterest widget on my phone, but every time I try to edit the user or board option a message pops up saying “No options were provided for this parameter.” I’ve checked if my phone is up to date and it is. I have never had trouble with editing my pinterest widget up until now..
What to do if the Pinterest widget, when editing, gives the following phrase: “No settings have been set for this parameter”?
Today I wanted to add a new Pinterest widget, but when I started editing, this phrase came up. I didn’t find any information about it. I even reinstalled Pinterest but it just removed the widgets I had before.
It’s worth noting that this problem first popped up about a month ago (1,2,3). But users were able to fix it by deleting Pinterest and the widget, restarting their phone and then installing the app again.
However, these steps do not seem to be working anymore for the affected users.
ive restarted my phone, deleted and reinstalled pinterest, and nothing works.
Unfortunately, the app’s developers have not acknowledged the issue yet. There aren’t any workarounds to resolve it either.
We recommend waiting for Pinterest to acknowledge it or even better, fix the issue entirely.
Until then, we will keep an eye out on the problem and update this space as and when we come across more information so make sure you stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
Update 1 (September 02, 2022)
06:11 pm (IST): Pinterest app on iOS recently grabbed a new update with v10.30. Hence, you can install it and check if this issue is resolved.
Update 2 (September 05, 2022)
04:09 pm (IST): According to a Redditor, the workaround where users are required to delete Pinterest and widgets and re-install them after re-starting the device is not working
Moreover, they have also lost their widgets from the homescreen. So you should avoid this workaround if you don’t want to lose your widgets.
PSA: i just tried this but it didn’t work…careful guys, once i deleted the app and deleted the widgets and it doesn’t work you won’t be able to get your stuff back, it really sucks cause i thought it was gonna work but now i’m stuck with my empty home screens waiting for another solution ;-; (Source)
