Look At This >> Trouble Finding Press It Feature « WordPress.com Forums

I went looking for the Press It feature that I’m used to in WordPress.org hosted WordPress site and couldn’t find it on any admin page of WordPress.com.   After some google searching, I found this link and used the attached script.

Trouble Finding Press It Feature « WordPress.com Forums

The script is:

javascript:if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf(‘Safari’)%20%3E=%200)%7BQ=getSelection();%7Delse%7BQ=document.selection?document.selection.createRange().text:document.getSelection();%7Dlocation.href=’http://YOUR-BLOG-URL.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php?text=’+encodeURIComponent(Q)+’&popupurl=’+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+’&popuptitle=Look At This » ‘+encodeURIComponent(document.title);

Vista IE7 won’t let me edit a shortcut with this target.   I had to edit a shortcut on my desktop and move it into my “Favorites” windows directory.   I added the “Look At This >>” element myself to make my surf finds more obvious.   I’d really like to tweak the script to add 100 characters from the page to the blog post or an image.
