    Whenever I use the Press This button to create a post, when posted, the text in my post is gone. All that is left is “via” and the link to the page I’m posting about. I end up having to edit the new post and paste the text of the post. Is that how it is supposed to work?
    Thanks.

    Yes, that is how it is supposed to work. It’s supposed to be a Starter utility, not a Supplement An Existing Post utility.

    Thanks for the explanation. The appearance of the Press This window lead me to believe that I should be able to do more with it.

    No, it’s basically just the equivalent of a Post To Facebook button, giving you a headstart on a post with the URL already built in there. I don’t find it tremendously useful. You might check out http://sni.ps I think it is. It’s new and should allow you to do more if they live up to their advance press.
