WordPress ‘Press This’ BookMarklet 404 Solution

As you have heard (if you’re a reader) I’m new to WordPress. In the tools, there is a drag/drop bookmarklet that makes it easy to copy/paste from the site you’re reading, into a new blog post.

When I tried the bookmarklet, my site was returning a 404 not found. After searching for the answer, not only did I find/fix the problem (thanks to qvprof) but I used it to create this post 🙂

It has to do with the URI Encoding getting mixed up with the mod_rewrite…

the part where it says u=’+e(l.href)+’
change it to u=’+e(l.href.replace(/\//g,’\\/’))+’
