Want to receive WordPress.com
notifications instantly, even when you’re not on WordPress.com?
Install the WordPress.com
extension for Firefox, and as soon as you get a new follower or a new like on one of your posts, a notification will appear in your browser.
The extension also makes it easy to follow sites from your WordPress.com
account by displaying a Follow button whenever you’re browsing a site that has an RSS feed. Clicking the Follow button will add new posts from the website to your reader and send you an email each time an update is published. (You can change your default email settings if you like.) When you visit a WordPress.com
site, you’ll notice that the extension icon will turn blue, but keep in mind that you can follow blogs on Blogger, Tumblr, and other services, too.
The "Press This" button is a lightning-fast way to publish content on your blog without ever visiting WordPress.com
. Click the WordPress.com
extension icon, then select "Press This" whenever you find something on the web that you’d like to share on your blog. A popup editor will appear, allowing you to customize the post before publishing it.
