WordPress’s “Press This” Feature Giving You a ‘404’?

Subscribe by email:

I forget sometimes how much I love this nice little feature with WordPress–you can put a “Press This” button in your browser toolbar that will let you post the page you are currently browsing to your blog. I hadn’t used it in a while, but wanted to use it pretty extensively with a new site I just started.

Of course, it didn’t work. I was getting ‘404’ error message, which means the page you are trying to access isn’t available on the server.

Luckily, there’s a nice, easy fix to this problem.

Just right click on the button you create, go to “Properties” and edit this little piece of code. Don’t worry about doing this at all–you can’t mess it up. Well, ok, so you can.  But if you do all it takes to correct it is to delete the button and start over.
