Where has the handy "re-blog" feature gone please?

    I used to occasionally love re-blogging other people’s articles by showing a neat summary of their work with a comment from me. My blog is reasonably highly pageranked so I figured I was doing them a favour with some nice back links to boost their PR and give them more visitors.

    Once click…sorted. It was very nice and very easy to do.

    Yet the feature now sadly seems to be gone.

    Am I just looking in the wrong place on the new menu bar thingy?

    thank you :-)

    The blog I need help with is blog.kothea.com.

    Staff temporarily disabled it and are working on it. You can use Press This.

    FWIW 3/10 is your blog’s pagerank and that’s not “high”. Blogs with pageranks of 6/10 and over are high pageranked blogs. The traffic metrics for your blog can be viewed here.

    hey ty for the speedy response.

    A quick related follow up Q if you don’t mind.

    I’ve just watched the press-this video explaining the features. Nice. And obviosuly more comprehensive than re-blog.

    However I’m a little uncertain that press-this properly AND AUTOMATICALLY accredits the source.

    Can you briefly assure me that it does accredit, then I can go figure out the details myself. Essentially I don’t want to have to manually and time-consumingly add reference to the source but appreciate that such references are required to avoid breaches of copyright and accusations of plagiarism.

    Many thanks

    If you need clarification that’s beyond what’s stated in the support documentation they please go to Staff. Here’s the link http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ After you use the searchbox, under the search results, at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal the contact form.

    3/10 is high for my industry and target market.

    as Einstein said “it’s all relative” (well he didn’t ACTUALLY say that but near enough did)

    ty for the link.
