The Tools menu and “Press This”

The “Press This” link shown in this video is now a graphical button shown right. Despite this change, the instructions in the video are still accurate.

    I am unable to drag the “Press This” link. Any ideas why?

    • I just tested it myself and it’s working for me but if it’s a drag & drop issue that’s probably your browser. When you drag, nothing happens at all or do you not have somewhere to drop it. If it’s the dropping problem, make sure your bookmarks toolbar is on. Worst-case you can try creating a new bookmark in your browser and then inserting this as the URL:

      javascript:var%20d=document,w=window,e=w.getSelection,k=d.getSelection,x=d.selection,s=(e?e():(k)?k():(x?x.createRange().text:0)),f=’http://libraries.ne.gov/projectblog/wp-admin/press-this.php’,l=d.location,e=encodeURIComponent,u=f+’?u=’+e(l.href)+’&t=’+e(d.title)+’&s=’+e(s)+’&v=4′;a=function(){if(!w.open(u,’t’,’toolbar=0,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,status=1,width=720,height=570′))l.href=u;};if%20(/Firefox/.test(navigator.userAgent))%20setTimeout(a,%200);%20else%20a();void(0)

      Just find the “project” bit in the URL and replace it with the name of your library. (“imperial” in your case.)
