Hey Pinterest: How about a button that you click on to Alphabetize all your boards? It get's old having to move them around manually. Sigh.

    I just asked on FB if it there was a way to do so. It does alphabetize on iPhone....just not here. Ugh...so hard to find things.

    Pinterest need to get more user friendly! The ability to alphabetize boards (IPhone does it), having the ability to run a slide show of a board and a pop-up to let you know you are duplicating would be extremely helpful. Does anyone know where to directly email Pinterest?

    Don't know where to email pinterest but there is a way to alphabetize the boards. If you notice at the top of where all of your boards are there is a little "edit profile" option. Next to edit profile there is a little image with a + sign on either side. If you click that it gives you the option to drag and move your boards around. Just don't forget to go back and click it again to "save" the rearranging you do. It took me a few minutes here and there to finally get mine in order. If you have a board that starts with an "A" and it's all the way at the bottom....drag it to the top of screen and hold it....the screen will scroll up. I hope this helped and didn't confuse everyone. I'll help in any way I can. I'd like to be able to make folders within the catagories. Am I asking too much?

    Reiko, Thank you SOOO much for putting this info up. This ACTUALLY worked. My boards are NOW so much easier to navigate. I looked all over for this feature before your direction and there it was, right in front of my face. This dilemma was previously sending me up a tree but thanks to your directions, problem solved.

    The new look of pinterest does not have that + icon it only shows a pencil for the edit button!! Also they give directions in the new look for moving your boards but once you close out of there they are not saved and no place that I seen to SAVE!! Disgusted!!

    Lila, once you click, "Rearrange Boards" you click the same icon which should be a red box with a check in it. By clicking the red box check your board arrangement will be saved. I hope this helps.

    Thanks I will check it out. I have the NEW Pinterest and not real happy with it. Don't have Activity there anymore plus no icon like we had with the old just a pencil icon. Plus it shows 5-6 or more times other peoples pins plus your own while you are scrolling through!! Crazy.

    Reiko Romero where do I find the "Rearrange Boards"??? I have the new look and they have changed a lot of things or removed them.

    Hi Lila. Is there not an "Edit Profile" option on top of the page with your Boards on it. Your main Board Page. At the top it gives you options, "Boards", "Pins", "Likes", "Activites". Next to these options is an edit profile option. Next to "Edit" is a little image or icon. Do you not have that on your Pinterest screen?

    No mine is the new look which I just said OK to last week. Sounds like everyone will be switched over sometime soon. The flag has been replaced by a pencil and only options for that is changing your profile. Under my name if you click is : Your Pins, Your Boards, Add Pin, Settings, Help Center, Find Friends, Log Out. There is no long "Activities" which I also miss. Plus when you are looking at everyone's pins they are repeated over and over and you scroll through and any you pin are also repeated as your scroll down.

    I have read something about Pinterest getting a new look on iPad. Are you on an iPad? It may be different. I'm on my lappie top. : ) I Googled how to re-arrange Pinterest Boards about 6 months ago. Maybe a Google search might help you. It is worth a try. My philosophy....if it's not broke, why mess with it. Right? Best to you, Lila! Have a great rest of the day...

    I am on my desk top. I have done just a few boards and they stayed but when I almost had the whole thing done and decided I needed a rest they did not! I give up!! Thanks for you help and some day they might hire a real computer geek and get things right.

    Lila, I had added some new boards which were not in alphabetical order. I took my cursor and dragged them (not an easy task - when your cursor disappears out of screens shot keep dragging) to where I wanted. I am now going to log out and see if they stay. Get right back with you. :)

    Glad to know I'm not the only one who finds this frustrating! I know how to move the boards manually, i just want a button that says alphabetize. Then you could click it and presto! They'd all move at once.

    Terri, I hear you! That would make it so much easier and hopefully Pinterest peeps will figure that out too. You can drag the boards to alphabetize them (which I did). I logged out and loged back in and voila! They are still in alphabetical order. Yay!! I hope this helps some.
