    Hi,

    I had this issue and thought i was like blacklisted or something, but after 48 hours i was able too, you didn't give enough information for me to answer.

    How old is your account?
    How long have you not been able to change the URL destination?
    Can you still edit everything else?
    Does you url point to a website that looks like straight spam?

    Hi,

    my account is 3 yrs old
    just happened to manually check today (otherwise use a bot, even the bot stopped repinning) so i am presuming that this has happened recently (today)
    yes i am able to change the desc, but it isnt showing me the option to change the url...i.e. the url field is not show when i go to edit pin
    the website was manually checked by pinterest staff and was given a pass a long time back, so i don't think the website is a problem

    thanks in advance!

    I cannot edit URLs for REPINS. But for pics that I upload, I can go back and add a URL. This account is over 1yr old. Maybe it's a change for Pinterest. They know that one of the blackhat tricks is to change URL once a pin becomes popular. I recall reading somewhere, too, that you can get a domain or account banned if you do this often enough.
