Press This

Press This provides a lightning-fast way to publish a link to a page or post from any website to your blog without ever visiting WordPress.com. It’s as easy as clicking the Press This bookmarklet while you’re viewing the page or post you want to share.

To set up Press This, head to My Sites in your dashboard. If necessary, select your site. You can tell which site is selected at the top of the sidebar:

You’ll see your Writing settings as well as your Press This bookmark. Drag the Press This link to the bookmarks or favorites area of your web browser. (It may look different than what’s pictured below, depending on your browser.)

Using Press This

Let’s say you come across a cool photography post, and you want to share part of it on your own blog.

Simply highlight the text you want to grab with your cursor, then click the Press This bookmarklet in your browser. A pop-up publishing window that will appear.

To add images or text to the link, click the “Plus” icon below the title of the post and select the photos you want. You can also add your own commentary if you like.
