Create Tumblr/Readability share

  1. Hi, I'm trying to create new share buttons from "add a new service" in the sharing settings in , but I'm having trouble... I believe is because the javascript code for each:

    javascript:var d=document,w=window,e=w.getSelection,k=d.getSelection,x=d.selection,s=(e?e():(k)?k():(x?x.createRange().text:0)),f='',l=d.location,e=encodeURIComponent,p='?v=3&u='+e(l.href) +'&t='+e(d.title) +'&s='+e(s),u=f+p;try{if(!/^(.*\.)?tumblr[^.]*$/.test(;tstbklt();}catch(z){a =function(){if(!,'t','toolbar=0,resizable=0,status=1,width=450,height=430'))l.href=u;};if(/Firefox/.test(navigator.userAgent))setTimeout(a,0);else a();}void(0)


    also, I committed a mistake and I can't delete the bookmarklet... it is with the wrong code (with this one ... that was dumb);; image:

    what to do.. what to do? It's ok I can't get my bookmarklets, but would be nice someone make a list of the ones you can get and how... and if i can't haz, at least stays as a suggestion for the future..

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Hi. You cannot install the code you are describing because it's not part of the code allowed by

    If you can find a Flash alternative (not JavaScript), perhaps there would be a workaround. If you find one such code, post it here between backticks (` - not apostrophes) and we'll see what can be done.

  3. Thanks @airodyssey, not a easy task, I guess not much can be done... but the topic stays to improve further wordpress features, such as the possibility to delete bookmarklets and maybe increase their sharing options in the future.

  4. If you use Tumblr you can put the button in your browser bar if you use Firefox. I wish I could do it with Chrome, but I don't think that's possible yet.

    If you want to offer the option for your readers (and Tumblr would be good) then you might be able to do it under the Sharing options.

  5. I use spellbook for Chrome, I don't know if I can live without bookmarklets. (laugh)

    The problem is I can't... the sharing options can't work with tumblr. bookmarklet javascript or any bookmark that involves java, the options are very short.. tumblr/readability developers didn't make a wordpress bookmarklet.. I guess is more their responsability to do it than from wordpress..

    hi, i'm wondering, in the add a new service under sharing options, how would you do it for tumblr? I'm pretty confused by all this now. What do I put in the sharing url and the icon url boxes?


  7. @teachersuzannah: The following article contains the codes and images for Tumblr and other services you can add.

    The article makes a reference to Sharedaddy and Jetpack, which are the WordPress.ORG equivalents of what you already have on WordPress.COM.

    @airodyssey: hey thank you so much! I'll definitely take a look. Appreciate your help! ~

  9. @teachersuzannah: You're welcome :-)

  10. Ah, thanks for finding that! VERY useful.

  11. Hello!

    Thanks for pointing others to the post; if there are other services that you think would be useful, please let me know with a comment on the post (easiest way for me to queue up the changes) and I'll be happy to look into it.

    As far as I know, there's no non-JavaScript way to do Readability so it's not possible to add it to a site or to Sharedaddy right now. Perhaps they will add a simple URL structure in the future.

    Personally, of the custom services I've added, I've found Tumblr to be the strongest one. I added it quite recently (a few weeks ago at most) and it's already managed almost as many shares as Facebook.

  12. Now I see the "remove bookmarlket" option has been added or I find it by mistake! Thanks wp!

    Well, there is this site with a library of bookmarlets that can be helpful:
