Share to MY blog? (9 posts)

    I'm not sure where to post this and searching isn't leading to much.

    While I enjoy that I can use Share on my blog to push my articles out to large social networks, what about when I want to share something on another site to MY blog?

    Does anyone know of anything which would allow me to do that?

    Maybe I'm not explaining this correctly?

    What I am looking for is when I (or others?) am visiting other sites, I'd like to share some of the things I see, but not on FB, not on Twitter, but on my own blog.

    How could this be done?

    have you tried adding the "Press This" bookmark in Settings -> Writing to your browser's toolbar?

    No, guess I never thought of that. That would work for my own travels but is there a way that I could give that option to others so they could put things on my blog?

    I guess you're saying the answer is social bookmarks, something I've overlooked.

    Thank you very much for the input!

    Not unless they were logged into your site with the appropriate role - Author or above.

    Got it.

    So, there is no way to offer something where users can post to their home pages (on my site) in the same way as facebook and other sites do for example?

    Unless, as you say, they are the owner of a blog and use Press This for example.

    Interesting.

    I just tested that but images aren't showing up, only the links. Guess I need to do a little more digging but you've given me a great lead, thanks.

    I'm a bit lost here. How can users have a home page on your site? Is this a multisite install?

    Yes, it's a multisite sub-directory install with the main site being BP and the rest being individual blogs.

    What I'm looking for is the same function as when you have a facebook page for example and can Share and Like things back to your own page but in this case, their home page on my WP site.
    Other examples include any other social sharing functions back to Digg, and Reddit and other such sites.

    What you've given me in terms of Press This is good for blog owners, I'm looking for a way for basic users on the site to be able to Share and Like (or what ever we'll call it) back to our site.

    I am quite sure this means programming a full out API or something but I need to gather up information so I can figure out what will be needed.

    BTW, I've been trying to use that Press This function but it's only capturing text/links but if I try to insert images, it just sits there doing nothing.

    I've tried both latest ie and latest firefox and had another person try it also and images didn't work for them also. Looking at docs on the net, we appear to be doing it as we are supposed to.
