Support » Fixing WordPress » Trouble with Right-Click Menu Posts

  • Ok. I have installed the right-click menu as instructed in the docs but receive script errors:
    ‘external.menuArguments.document’ is null or not an object
    Is this something with my computer or the Script? Any information would be appreciated. If you need more info just let me know.
    Also, the *Add Link* right-click menu is giving the same problems!
    Has anyone else experienced any of these problems?

  • Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? 😉

    I think it may be a Internet Explorer version incompatibility issue.
    It doesn’t work for me and I have version 5.0
    Does anyone have a version on which it does work?

    I’m using Firebird .7 and the right click option doesn’t appear at all. Nor in Mozilla 1.5 or 1.6 alpha.
    Niggly typo: in the sidebar, it says ‘Trackback an Url’…shouldn’t it be ‘a url’?

    Hi Cena,
    The right click thing is an Windows Internet Explorer only thing.
    It’s actually implemented as a chunk of JScript code stored in the Registration Database. I think the problem is that the JScript is probably IE6 specific or something.
    On the typo, I guess it depends on whether you say ‘an earl’ or ‘a you-are-ell’

    There’s no such thing as a URL, it should be URI.

    Unless of course you mean universal republic of love.

    You can trackback Universal Republic of Love with WP?… How’s _that_ for a feature?

    So, how do I get the bookmarklet thing to work? I have IE v6.0 and now have two “Post to WP” menu items that don’t work, after trying again with the .reg file.

    I’m going to bring this issue back to the surface, because I have as yet solved the problem. If this feauture doesn’ work, shouldn’t it be taken out of the CVS at least? Also, how do I remove it from my IE menu? Alternatively, how do I make it work?

    I fixed it.
    First: make reg file like this one.
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Post To &WP : Hostlounge Blog]
    Change C:\\temp\\blogpost.html to whatever you want.
    Then in that C:\\temp\\blogpost.html put this:
    <script language=”JavaScript” defer>
    thewindow = window.external.menuArguments;
    doc = thewindow.document;
    Q = doc.selection.createRange().text;
    T = thewindow.location;
    W = doc.title;
    btw =‘’+escape(Q)+’&popupurl=’+escape(T)+’&popuptitle=’+escape(W));
    works for me…




    Just one question, about the bookmarklet you use here, is it possible to do multiple bookmark in one item ?
    Or does the right click open a new window with a new item each time you right click ?
