Support » Fixing WordPress » Where’s my Bookmarklet? (Let’s figure this out!

  • Hi all.
    I am missing my “Bookmarklet” link. Here’s what I see in WordPress:
    See? No bookmarklet link!
    I have posted a few times about this problem in the past, but no one has seemed to know what the problem is. I’d like this thread to be able to resolve it or at least pinpoint where the problem is coming from.
    I should state first that I’ve NEVER been able to see the Bookmarklet link in WP since setting it up six months ago. This problem has occured independent of the version of WP I am running.
    It is because of this I think the problem has something to do with what PHP libraries I have enabled on my web server or something of that sort. I recently had to enable GD to get the thumbnail plugin to work, for example. Does the Bookmarklet code require anything similar?
    Also, it could be the fact that I am running WP on a Windows 2003 machine with IIS. I notice certain WP things based off of Apache (ie. mod_rewrite functions in Permalinks). Could this be the problem?
    I have a fairly diverse knowledge of PHP, but my Javascript skills (which are what the Bookmarklet code is made with) are lacking. I have Javascript running in my browser, and I have ran other bookmarkets before. So this is clearly not the case of my system having the wrong settings.
    I’m basically just totally stuck on trying to fix this problem, and after 6 months of trying to debug it myself, I’m getting rather fed up. Can anyone shed some insight that might help me get my Bookmarklet back?

  • well the easiest way should be to dive into wp-admin/post.php
    and search for ………function oneclickbookmarklet(blah)

    You could directly bookmark:
    javascript:if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Safari') >= 0){Q=getSelection();}else{Q=document.selection?document.selection.createRange().text:document.getSelection();}void(''+escape(Q)+'&popupurl='+escape(location.href)+'&popuptitle='+escape(document.title),'WordPress bookmarklet','scrollbars=yes,width=600,height=460,left=100,top=150,status=yes'));
    You have to modify the url of the blog though.

    I guess I’m trying to figure out why it isn’t showing up. I’ve found the .function oneclickbookmarklet(blah) part of post.php, but, like I said, I don’t know enough javascript to know why it isn’t showing up.
    I know this has happened to other users before. If no one has any ideas as to why it might not be showing up, I’ll put it in Mosquito. But I’d love to avoid that step 🙂
    Remember: I’ve never seen the bookmarklet over multiple WP revisions. It’s got to be something server or code-related that conflicts with the server.
    Any ideas?
