    Hi, I work off a Mac and an IPad – I can not drag and drop the PRESS THIS button. It works with my laptop. Is this a Mac issue or can you explain to me how to do it. Many thanks Liza

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

    Hi there, Press This should work fine on Macs, sorry you’re having trouble.

    Would you mind double-checking that your bookmarks toolbar is being displayed in Safari? The Press This bookmarklet needs to be dragged onto the bookmarks toolbar, so if it’s hidden at the moment, that could be causing the problem. You’ll find the bookmarks option under the View menu – set it to “Show Bookmarks Bar” if it’s not already.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Thanks for reporting back. I tested PressThis in two version of Safari (5.1.7 and 6.0.2) and both worked OK here. You might try turning off all Safari extensions temporarily to see if something might be interfering. You’d find them under Safari > Preferences > Extensions.

    There is an alternative method for bookmarking PressThis that you might want to try instead. If you control-click the PressThis bookmarklet icon instead of dragging it, you’ll see the instructions for manually creating a bookmark for it.

    Let me know how it goes.
