I had been putting off the job of sorting through the API and available libraries i had seen, to write something to get specific sets of my Pinboard bookmarks on one of my websites. Did an idle search yesterday -- and Pinboard Bookmarks plugin was there all the time! Lots of options to choose what and how to display, all data is enclosed in html elements with ids and classes for easy styling, it just has everything i want, and nothing i don't want (social media stuff, privacy invasion, etc.) Works fine with ClassicPress.
Happiness. Thank you!
