Support » Plugin: Press This » Fixed! (was Please bring back original bookmarklet functionality)

  • Update: With the version 1.1.1 update, the bookmarklet now works. I’ve tested it in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, and it seems to work just fine now.

    I use the “Press This” functionality for most of my blog posts.

    When I upgraded my blog to 4.9 I was shocked that the bookmarklet no longer worked.

    This morning I tried to use the “Press This” bookmark I had stored in my bookmarks bar and it kept bringing me to my Admin page, which was not at all what I wanted.

    I was able to find a workaround through searching in the support forum, that had me create a bookmarklet and then update a PHP file. Thank you @robbyslaughter!

    I’ve been blogging for almost 3 years and haven’t had to dig into PHP. This would really give newbies a sour taste of WordPress. WordPress is supposed to be easy to use, but IMO, editing PHP is quite daunting and definitely not for newbies.

    Version 1.1.0 will be released in the next day or so that will restore the bookmarklet. Could you give it a try and update your rating if it is suitable to your purposes?

    Hourra! THX
    What a nightmare when WordPress lacks ensuring clean following on its own integrations.
