Support » Everything else WordPress » I.E. 8 series accelerator for wordpress?

  • I’ve been playing around with the new IE 8 beta 2 and absolutely fell in love with the accelerators.

    One that really caught my eye was the ability to highlight any part of any website, click a button and it automatically takes me to my windows live blog and pasts the content into my blog for posting.

    Is there such a module or addon for wordpress that does this yet?

    Use your Press This link.

    Try this:

    Log into your WordPress blog and go to the “Write a New Post”.

    Once there look for the Press This link on the right hand side of the page under Shortcuts. Drag that link into you Links bar. Now on a page that you want to blog about, highlight some text and click on Press This.

    See if that does it for you.

    KallOut Brings IE 8 Accelerators and More to All Office Apps, IE, Firefox, Adobe Reader and Google Chrome (in the next release)

    If you think you might like the IE 8 Accelerators feature, you will absolutely LOVE KallOut.

    As shown on, KallOut offers many more accelerator pages and it offers them in floating palettes that work for selections that you do inside any of the following apps:

    1. IE 6, 7, 8
    2. Firefox 2, 3
    3. Microsoft Office Apps: Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Notepad, WordPad
    4. Microsoft Outlook
    5. Adobe Reader

    We are also in the midst of adding support for Google Chrome in our next release.

    This means that just about every major Windows app (with Mac Apps coming soon) supports a suite of Best-of-Breed Content Providers in a dynamic, context-sensitive, BestGuess Menu that suggests the ideal KallOut not just those showing Microsoft products.

    Clearly, KallOut’s shipping product is superior to this initial entry from Microsoft in the Selection-based Search category.

    Please try it out and let us know what you think.
