How-to: Add Pin it Button with Pin Count to Typepad Advanced Templates

The one caveat to this code is that the first image in each post MUST be hosted on Typepad. I have asked Typepad if there is a workaround and they assure me there is not. I am moving my images...slowly. (There is a trick to move images all at once. Export your posts and then import them. That process seems to result in Typepad copying all the images to their servers.

Speaking of which, I really appreciate the people who share the word about my tech tweaks. What I don't appreciate is people who wholesale lift my code and instructions, cut some of the most important stuff (like backing up templates) and then post the rest. Please don't be that person. One of them is enough.
