Press This and Zemanta

  1. This is really about a couple of questions that I have but, since I'm not asking for help, I thought that this would be the best place for it.

    • I'm using that fabulous Press This feature to write this. It has become a really useful tool for creating comments and forum posts, and even for drafts of posts for my blog I Want Ice Water. I don't quite trust it yet for the actual publishing, but it's actually faster than the post editor for drafts and has enough of the niceties to make inserting formatting, links and smilies into comment boxes less "hazardous." I'm wondering if other people find it as useful as I do?
    • I just re-started my browser after installing a new FF add-on called Zemanta. It promises to be the greatest thing for on-line writing since, well, blogging. When I activated the Press This feature while over the welcome tab that FF opened for me, it automatically produced this Zemanta, your revolutionary writing assistant is now installed | Zemanta Ltd.. link to Zemanta's welcome page. It also added some interesting images and links related to the page in a widget(?) below the editing pane. While I haven't used this new feature yet, it looks like the combination of the two might just be a wonderful thing. Does anyone have any thoughts about this?

    I'm going to add this as one of my topic favorites so that I can check back.

    The blog I need help with is iwanticewater.wordpress.com.

  2. I find the Press this to be a waste of time but on the other hand Zemanta is a Gem here is a screen cast I made displaying what Zemanta can do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_hlxjA5niA

  3. Thank you very much. Now that's help I can use. I asked others to come here and give comments over on the Questions forum, but they accused me of forum "highjacking" and deleted the topic.

  4. You're welcome!!!

  5. I looked at your video and, just like those on the Zementa site, your WP editor screens don't look like mine. I don't have the feature select buttons that both show - only what looks like drop-down menus without explanations. I clicked on one that seemed to indicate it would list available post-related content, but all it did was insert "reBlog" code into my post.

    Can you point me to some more detailed Zemanta help? Their site is woefully lacking! I've disabled it in my browser until I understand it a little better.

    Thanks in advance.
