Add content! Add the Publish it! bookmarklet to Chrome mobile

The "Publish it!" bookmarklet is a great way to add your favorite content - from anywhere on the web - to your paper.    Add content to your paper while on the go, straight from your mobile phone, by using the bookmarklet!


Once the bookmarklet is added to your bookmarks, you can add images, videos or an article to your paper.  But how do you install the bookmarklet on your mobile phone?  The "how to" is slightly different from adding it to your bookmarks bar on a desktop computer.



Install the "Publish it!" bookmarklet on your Chrome mobile app

1.  Copy the Javascript for the bookmarklet.  

javascript:void(function(){var w,to=5000,t=setTimeout(function(){''+encodeURIComponent(window.location.href))||alert('This site doesn\'t allow to include its content in or prevents the usage of bookmarklets.')},to),a=document.createElement('script');a.setAttribute('type','text/javascript');a.setAttribute('src',document.location.protocol+'//');a.onload=function(){clearTimeout(t);w && w.close()};document.body.appendChild(a);}());


2.  Go to any page on the web (such as support article shown below) and add the page to your bookmarks.  


Adding a bookmark in Chrome app

(2a) Click the star icon to the right of the address bar on your iPad in order to add a bookmark.

On your iPhone, tap the three horizontal lines, then the star to do the same.

(2b)  Edit the name of the bookmarklet to bookmarklet.




(3)  Paste the javascript copied from step one into the URL field and click save.



4.  When you want to use the bookmarklet simply tap on the address bar and X out the URL of article you're adding. Then type " bookmarklet" and select it from the drop-down menu.  

WARNING: Do not select the bookmarklets through your list of bookmarks. It opens a new page and will not work. You must access it via the address bar.
