What Is The Press This Button?

WordPress has many cool features, and one of them is called the Press This button.  What it essentially does is allows you to quickly grab text, pictures and videos from any site and post it on your blog; all this without every having to actually be on WordPress.

In order to be able to use this little app, you first go to your Tools under your Dashboard sidebar, and you’ll be on the screen where the Press This button is located.

You can then drag and drop this button to your browser’s bookmark bar as pictured above.  Now whenever you want to share something from the web to your WordPress, all you have to do is click on the Press This tab on your bookmark’s bar and you’ll be greeted to a window that will have all the content ready for you right before you want to publish it to your WordPress.
