eta: melannen has already made the first improved version, which now warns you if you try to signal boost an access-locked post!
eta2: I've now updated the bookmarklet so that it preserves the HTML encoding in the selected text, so for instance if you select a chunk of text that includes an image or links to an AO3 story or to another DW post, the links will be preserved. It does NOT work on embedded video, sorry. :(
eta3: v1.4 with fixes and stripping excess Signal Boost: prefixes from melannen, more support for non-DW sites and better formatting from lj_writes!
- Go to a Dreamwidth post that you want to signal boost. You have to be ON the post itself; sadly this doesn't work from within your reading list. Also, you need to be logged in.
- If you want an excerpt, select some text in the post.
- Click the bookmarklet. You should be taken to the Dreamwidth post form with the signal boost content prefilled. You can add any other content you want, copy and paste the content to create posts with multiple signal boosts, etc. Whenever you're happy, you post it like any other post.
eta2: Safari for iOS install instructions by gingicat and Chrome for Android install instructions by falena!
Pre-Github versions preserved:
1.1, access lock, no HTML copying
1.0, no access lock check
