Press This provides a lightning-fast way to grab text, images, or video from any website and post it to your blog without ever visiting WordPress.com. You can also use Press This to quickly share a link on your blog.
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:
To choose a different site, click on Switch Site in the image above. Then select the one you want.
Scroll to the bottom of the sidebar and select Settings.
Select Writing across the top
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.)
That’s it – you’ve installed Press This!
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, click the picture frame icon below the title of the post and select the photos you want. You can also add your own commentary if you like. If you have multiple blogs, use the drop-down menu to choose where to publish the content.
If you just want to quickly share a link to a website, without reproducing any of the content in your own post, just click the Press This bookmarklet while you’re viewing the page you want to share.
When you’re done, click Save Draft to save the post, or if you’re ready, hit Publish.
