Press This question

    In the “Shares” section of my stats I find a couple using Press This. It’s a big day for me to find someone, anyone, sharing my stuff but is there a way to find out who did it or how? Will I get a notice or something like a pingback or do I have to trust that they will link back to my post? I’ve searched Support and the forums and I find how to use Press This to grab material but nothing about being the one who is grabbed.

    The blog I need help with is



    How they could of reblogged your content

    When some one likes your post via your site using the admin bar they are presented wit the option to reblog the content they click liked on please not that the reblog option only uses a excerpt from your article…

    Option B for reblogging content

    Press This
    Press This is a bookmarklet: a little app that runs in your browser and lets you grab bits of the web.

    Use Press This to clip text, images and videos from any web page. Then edit and add more straight from Press This before you save or publish it in a post on your site.

    Drag-and-drop the following link to your bookmarks bar or right click it and add it to your favorites for a posting shortcut.

    If someone clicks on the link to your blog from their blog a hit should show up in your stats that would be the only way to find out who shared your content

    The press this bookmarlet can be found via the left navigation panel under the category Tools via your dashboard



    I’m sorry. I did search but I could not find an answer. Hopefully another Volunteer will have one. If not then Staff can answer your question.



    sl1k – thanks for that info. I know which post Press This was used on so I will watch for incoming links. I guess I’m just impatient. I didn’t know the reblog option only used an excerpt. I’m not worried about getting ripped off, just curious to see what happens.

    timethief – thank you for searching. I can’t believe you were stumped! If this keeps bugging me I’ll go bother Staff.

    To all the volunteers and moderators – I have never felt the need to ask a question in the forums because I always find the answers and suggestions you guys give to others to be so helpful. Thanks for all the hours you spend keeping all of us in line!
