Why "The WordPress bookmarklet was deprecated. Please delete it..."

  1. Att Darnell Dibbles NEW THREAD/question re my blog at https://brainheadinjury.wordpress.com

    Hi Darnell
    I set this blog up under a "pseudonym"
    I want to post on this blog without my profile being seen as craig lock.. .
    .to keep it seperate from my other blogs on the subject head/brain injury
    So I can post quite personal but helpful info anonymously (not craig lock). Just put up a post at
    https://brainheadinjury.wordpress.com/2017/11/05/in-our-experience-we-have-found-that-it-is-extremely-detrimental-psychologically-for-people-to-place-themselves-in-positions-where-they-are-continuously-faced-with-failure-on-account-of-spec/,but
    it shows links to craig lock profile
    I used log in as [email redacted] on thisc blog, but also have [email redacted] as administrators under people, so I can reblog on my other sites on this subject.

    Please advise how to hide links to my craig lock profile. Do I have to delete craig lock as administrator?

    Thanks a lot and have a great day “over there”

    There is a way you can have no mentions of the craiglock username on the site without removing that user as an admin, provided you're careful:

    1) Make sure to never comment there while logged in as the craiglock account

    2) When publishing a post or page, make sure to select the other username as the author before publishing the post or page.

    At the moment your craiglock username appears there because that username is set as the author for the majority of posts. You can use the bulk-edit feature in WP-Admin ->Posts to change that to the other admin on the blog:

  3. The plus sign is only on certain sites. Are they WordPress? Don't know for sure. I accidently hit go premium but don't want to go premium how do I cancel it?

  4. What's Calypso bookmark/plugin? This is Greek to me.

  5. Please explain about about Calyspo more and better.

  6. @kokkieh, if you were to be removing the classic dashboard/editor, and if you were to be removing its related bookmarklet, then it would have made sense.

    Forcing people to use Clypso bookmarklet when we are not even using the clypso dashboard/editor, makes no sense.

    This decision to arbitrarily remove a working solution, has caused a real discomfort to a long standing workflow.

  7. I agree why take away a working solution. To many steps and you have to type the Title and link you want to share. Before all yo had to do is press a button of the link you wanted to share. I most likely won't be sharing as much which to bad because I come across a lot of cool posts.

  9. Agreed. The bookmarlet worked well, the new solution is painful.

  10. If I type the URL in the address bar then hit Press This that I installed in my bookmarks bar, all I get is search. I find that if I find a cool post then hit Press This I notice you have to type the title of the post and most of the time you have to type the link yourself. When I say most of the time I mean practically all the time because it's rare the link goes in by itself like it did before. Is there an easier way?

  11. if you were to be removing the classic dashboard/editor, and if you were to be removing its related bookmarklet, then it would have made sense.

    We did not remove anything. The WordPress.org community removed the bookmarklet from the open source WordPress software. We use that same software on WordPress.com, so if it changes there, it changes here.

    The Press This editor has not been removed on WordPress.com because it hasn't been removed on Core. On Core the bookmarklet is being replaced by a plugin that still uses that editor. As I said above, though, it's unlikely we will be integrating that plugin into WordPress.com

    We are not forcing anyone to use the Calypso bookmarklet, but if you want to use a bookmarklet, that's the only one that still exists as it does not form part of Core WordPress.

  12. OK. well Thanks. It's better than nothing. Thanks

  13. Slapped upside the head again by WP. I want my Press This back. I'm using the classic editor. Thanks but no thanks to the dumbed down editor. I haven't tried the hard to understand solution yet, primarily because I don't trust WP to not break anything. And I haven't read anything that tells me, in plain English, that the solution is one that I can live with.

  14. Well, without knowing what I was doing, I seemed to have solved the problem. I grabbed the free plugin in my settings. And then when I saw it on my blog, I was able to add it to my bookmarks. It works a little differently, but for those, like myself, who use the classic editor, it takes you right to it in a new window. That works for me.

  15. Where do I find the classic editor and the WP editor? How do I get there. If I press something I usually use the Press This button I installed in my bookmarks bar. However, when I do hit the WP button it sometimes puts the link in but most of the time If not all I have to put in the title and the link. It's the long way around but it works. Is there a shorter and easier way?

  16. Whoops, forgot to put in my site links. Here they are: WELCOME TO CRYSTAL'S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and CRYSTAL'S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE Hope this helps.

Daisymae2017: I don't know about your machine or anything, but I'm using Pale Moon browser (since Mozilla has jumped on the fake news bandwagon), and windows 7 on one machine and windows 10 on another. Go to https://tpenguinltg.wordpress.com/ where there's instructions. He, or she, will direct you to get a script handler like Greasemonkey. When you install it, it sits on your toolbar. Everything here is automated. Trust me. I hate geeks. This isn't hard. Then go to Greasy Forks and type in WordPress. You'll be taken to tPenguin's scripts. If you use Firefox, you'll have little difficulty. If you use Pale Moon, you can check their own growing body of apps and plugins for Pale Moon. As well, Pale Moon is based on Firefox, so some stuff for Firefox works on Pale Moon. When you find the script for re-directing to classic editor for your browser, then click on it and it automatically installs.

  18. I use Google Chrome or Internet Explorer as my browser.

  19. Just check into it. I've given you the links. I can't do more. I do wish geeks were helpful and handy. Alas, They generally are not. All I can say is, Good luck!

  20. I checked out the link and was even more confused. I think I'll take the long way around. It might be a pain but actually it's easier.
